Purple Cabbage Basil Slaw

Spring has sprung (maybe? ::fingers crossed::). The weather in the City of Trees has the decision making skills of a toddler. I was out and about for work just the other day; the weather: mid 40's, sunny, slight wind. And then BOOM: black skies, freezing, windy-winds that make me whip my hair back and forth, and freakin' hail, dude. And as fast as all that came in, it left even faster and the weather was even warmer than before with extra sun and happy. So just because it's all springy right now doesn't mean it'll stay that way.

But in this Spring moment, let me share some picnic food with you. If you've read any of my posts from previous seasons, you'll notice I'm kind of a picnic whore. As a matter of fact, I'm pretty sure the first time BandMan and I did the whole flirting thing, we were talking about having one.

I love picnics, and picnic foods. If you don't like picnics, you suck.







1 orange, juiced
1 lime, juiced
1 very small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2-3 tbsp basil
1 tbsp agave
1/2 c olive oil
Salt and pepper
1/2 head purple cabbage, finely shredded
  1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and let the flavors get to know each other for at least 30 minutes before you decide to chow down.

Happy MoFo! I'm excited to be back on my newly revamped, but same old same, mediocre blog for Vegan MoFo 2018. Last year I participated but I participated exclusively on the gram (you can follow me if you feel like it). While I loved the daily prompts, I totally missed sharing the recipes; so I'm glad to be back. 
Quick explanation about the name change (in case you noticed):In previous years, this blog participated in Vegan MoFo as "Vegan4One." There were a lot of reasons why I felt the need to change my blog name but ultimately the main reason was that my recipes were no longer 4One and I found the name misleading to readers. When I originally started this blog back in September of 2009, I was cooking vegan for one person but so much has happened over the years (as it should) and to make that long story short, I'm cooking for more like 6 folks now (2 grown men, 1 teenage boy, myself, and an extra serving for my lunch the next day).

RESTAURANT REVIEW: Firenza

...

I’m not gonna lie to you my pizza was very bomb but everything else was very not.

Firenza (located in downtown Boise) looks, feels, and acts like a corporate fast food franchise because it is a corporate fast food franchise but it’s a corporate fast food franchise that offers vegan pizza, and if it wasn’t for the damn up-charges it would be, on the cheap. 

My guests and I walked through the front door of Firenza (which was kinda hard to find to be honest) and I immediately got thrown back to my high school cafeteria and not in a pleasant way. Imagine bare white walls and what looks like a giant high school logo painted over a pizza assembly line. 
We approached the pizza assembly line and I immediately told the staff member who welcomed us that this was our first time visiting the restaurant and asked for guidance. They said ok and blankly stared at us until I eventually broke the awkward silence and started asking about vegan options. 
The sauces on the menu were clearly marked as veg…

Savory Taco Pancakes

Below is an actual text I sent to my partner and son, but first some context: I practice Intermittent Fasting every day, so breakfast doesn't get served until noon or later daily - thus it's not really referred to as breakfast. We usually refer to it as "first meal" and sometimes brunch. My kid and partner can't really handle the late first meal on the weekends, but they deal surprisingly well. While I was making first meal today, my son was snacking on leftover cold pizza from yesterday and my partner was chugging a blueberry protein shake. So what does this have to do with the above referenced text? Well when they grew tired of waiting on me to finish putting together this dish, they decided to run down to our closest music store and grab some new guitar strings. Almost immediately after their departure, I had completed today's first meal and let me tell you I feel like a completed a masterpiece. So here's the text I sent in a group message as the van w…
