365 Project Day 294: Beignet Bliss

Every now and then, Breads on Oak makes beignets. They make traditional beignets, along with cream filled donuts and candied donuts... and it is a thing of true glory.

The finished product: a vegan Pecan Praline Beignet!

Word on the street is that Hey! Cafe is now serving sandwiches made by Breads on Oak. What could be better?! Whether it's these older sandwiches or a new bunch from Breads, what's certain is that you can have a great lunch at this hip coffee joint.

365 Project Day 287: Stickballs Without the Stick

Ever wonder what Stickball's vegan meat balls are made of? Here's a hint: they're falafel. Here they are all dressed up and not even on sticks at a popup at Milkfish. (Find them dressed down at Pal's Lounge.)


365 Project Day 286: Wherein I'm feeling sarcastic.

Being vegan is such a sacrifice, especially here in New Orleans. It's soooo hard to give up cheese, and ice cream. What am I supposed to do when I crave a burger?  And what about chicken n waffles? I'll never know what they taste like!!

Oh, wait.

365 Project Day 285: The Date's the Thing

When winter is on the horizon, I find my tastes turning toward nuts and dried fruits. These "cakes" are just the thing!
