Yo Yo MoFo!

It's VeganMoFo time again! Yes, starting Monday, a whole slew of bloggers (check out the ever-growing blog roll* here) will be writing about all things vegan for the entire month of November.

Albert Einstein defined insanity as "doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." So, naturally, I signed up for VeganMoFo (again), had all sorts of ideas for awesome themes (again), thought about trying to do some kind of giveaway (again) and was totally ready to make this the BEST MOFO EVER (again)....and didn't do any of that. So my contribution to VeganMoFo will be less than impressive. Expect a lot of talk about chickpeas. And seitan. And chickpea seitan. And really bad photos of chickpea seitan. There will also probably be a fair amount of poorly decorated baked goods.

Aside from that, enjoy the month, everyone. There are a lot of really awesome people participating and I can't wait to steal their recipes to impress my friends and family.

* Unrelated: I hate the phrase "blog roll". Sounds like what they call bathroom tissue in the UK.**

** And THAT is the kind of wisdom you can expect out of me for the next month. You're welcome.

Sea Shepherd Sunday Sale Success

So Sunday saw Sea Shepherd New York's vegan bake sale in Montclair, NJ, where we raised nearly $2,700 for Sea Shepherd. We were hosted by the lovely Go Lightly Eco-Store, and received generous (and delicious!) donations from The Cinnamon Snail, Rutherford Pancake House and RAWbundant in addition to all our lovely homemade baked goods. I contributed some roasted garlic biscuits (my own recipe) and sea life themed gingerbread cookies from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar. The biscuits didn't look like much of anything, but here are some process shots of the cookies:

Farm Sanctuary's Walk for Farm Animals

It's time for Farm Sanctuary's Walk for Farm Animals, an annual event that helps spread the word about the treatment of animals on factory farms and raises vital funds for their rescue, education and advocacy work.

To find a walk near you and participate, click over here.

To sponsor me in the NYC walk, click here.

Also, since it worked so well last time I did one of these things, I will bake for anyone who sponsors me or walks in NYC on October 24. Farm Sanctuary does amazing work, so please support them, if you can.  Do it for dudes like Herbie (left):
