And these are my top 10 vegan treats. Amici’s Pizza serves pizzas made with Daiya vegan cheese that are very delicious! One of their locations is across the street from Giants Stadium (Go Giants!).

Just Like Bubbie Used to Make

If your bubbie rocked the Whisky! Nathan grew up in West Hollywood and I grew up in Orange County. Although we were less than 60 miles apart, we basically grew up on different planets. My semi-annual mecca to Melrose Avenue to shop at Vinyl Fetish and Retail Slut were the highlight of my high school years. While lucky Nathan lived and breathed the L.A. lifestyle I craved every day of the week, hanging out with future rock stars at Fairfax High School, serving Hollywood legends like Jimmy Stewart and Howard Cosell through his job at the Farmer’s Market, and ditching Read More

America’s Favorite Candy Bars

Some vegans have at least one or two non-vegan foods for which they still pine. For us it was the Snickers bar. For twenty years we waited patiently, and one day just a few years ago it happened. A new vegan candy bar company came into existence and began churning out versions of Milky Way, Almond Joy, Three Musketeers, and—oh joy—Snickers!

It’s the vegan dark ages, which means that to get that grilled cheese sandwich, there are only three ways to proceed, Read More
