Happy March! Hey guys, St. Patrick’s Day is coming up. I don’t usually celebrate the holiday much. Except maybe this year I’ll finally make it out to the dyeing of the river. The fifth year’s the charm, right? I might not go out for green beer and overcrowded bars on St. Patty’s day, but I definitely enjoy indulging my few percentage points of Irish heritage with food. Anyway, who doesn’t like eating all the food all the time?
This year for St. Patrick’s day I wanted to get a little fancy and combined a seitan stout stew with calconnon for a take on a shepherd’s pie (Bonus: It’s even green! Thanks cabbage!). It resulted in the ultimate comfort food. Beer, barley, potatoes, and seitan, can you go wrong?
Hello from the middle of a Chicago winter! I just moved here to take a job with the amazing Hampton Creek Foods (like us on Facebook here). Eva, her boyfriend Omar, and I are all roommates now, which means our apartment is literally 100% of the time filled with delectable vegan food because we all love to cook.

I whipped up these stuffed mushrooms to share with my friend Kumars before we dove into a marathon of The O.C., his favorite show. Before you judge us as dimwitted, I’ll have you know that Kumars, an NYU masters student, heard tonight that he was admitted to UC Berkeley. Seeing as 90% of our seven-year friendship’s foundation is firmly based in overeating together, I am pretty sure I know how we are going to celebrate…
Serves One Sindha or Six People
This cake is known in the vegan underground scene as the “Big Apple Sensation Cake.” By that I mean: that’s what my mom calls it.

Q: What is a “Big Apple?”
A: It’s the nickname for New York City, where I live.
Guys. I’ve improved my deep dish pizza making skills. After much research and trial and error I have learned how to create the perfect restaurant-style deep dish. The secret is in the crust.
Since perfecting this deep dish pizza dough recipe, I’ve probably made it once a week. Excessive, I know, but, fair warning–it’s that good. And super duper easy to make! And the cleanup in a breeze! You’re left with plenty of time to clean or prepare side dishes while it bakes!

Although it’s not the most photogenic food (I tried!), I. Love. Spanakopita.
So much that I might name my first child Spanakopita. I could even probably get it tattooed on my lower back.
Alright, maybe not, I could see society being unwelcoming of both a child named Spanakopita and spanakopita tattoos (people are narrow-minded!), but my point is just that I owe the Greek people a major tribute because they have given me the gift of one of the world’s most delicious foods: spanakopita.
Once I made a tart to satisfy the sweet tooth of my friend Nathan and this tart kicked some major ass. The idea for this recipe started when I began contemplating what to do with the bunches of mint from my mom’s garden. Of course that mint mostly ended up going into a delicious mint-coriander chutney, but the idea of making a tart with strawberry and mint flavors stuck with me. A month later I found myself at the grocery store with Nathan buying strawberries and mint.
