Vegan Valentines in Chicago

From BakeandDestroy.net: A few days ago I published my 2022 Be My Vegan Valentine guide for gifts you can have shipped – with plenty of time to order because yeah, I’m real organized like that. This time I’m turning my attention to Chicago (and Chicago-ish areas) and highlighting some vegan-friendly Valentine’s specials being offered by local businesses. Please note: I’m going to keep adding to this post as I receive information. Not everyone has their menus planned, order links live, etc. So check back often, and if you’re a Chicago or nearby Chicago business offering a vegan-friendly special ..read more

From BakeandDestroy.net: Linley and Bryson If you’ve read my blog or followed me on social media for some time, you may know that each year I dedicate my birthday to raising money for cancer non-profit Grind for Life. This past birthday, December 2021, I sat out the fundraiser because we’d just lost my mother-in-law to lung cancer. But just a few weeks later I’ve found new motivation to fundraise again. This time, to help my friend Linley Hollywood of Chattanooga’s Your Local Seitanist travel to see to her son while putting her business on hold for a month. In the handful of years I’ve known L ..read more

From BakeandDestroy.net: The Christmas decorations may still be rattling around in the front yard, but ready or not, here comes Valentine’s Day! For some it’s a reminder to celebrate those you love, for others, it’s a reminder that monogamy and romantic relationships are simply a social construct. Either way, you might find yourself shopping for a vegan this year. Or maybe you’re a vegan looking to keep your Valentine’s Day gifts aligned with your values. So here are some of my suggestions for a perfectly sweet vegan Valentine’s Day. Chocolate, Duh Chocolate is considered an aphrodisiac, so g ..read more

Vegan Pasta e Ceci (Pasta With Chickpeas)
Bake & Destroy by Natalie Slater

1y ago
From BakeandDestroy.net: When made traditionally, Pasta e Ceci is “accidentally vegan,” although many people finish the dish with some Parmesan cheese. This is a really simple dish that will only dirty one pot, and comes together in about 20 minutes. The garlicky, spicy sauce gets its added richness from the liquid in the canned chickpeas (also known as aquafaba). If you prefer to cook your own chickpeas for this recipe, feel free – just follow the note in the recipe to make sure you aren’t missing out on any flavor. Violife and Follow Your Heart both make really good vegan Parmesans that can ..read more

Friday Five: Building an Ethical Wardrobe
Bake & Destroy by Natalie Slater
by BakeandDestroy
1y ago
From BakeandDestroy.net: I’ve wanted to write this post forever because like veganism (which I endlessly cover here) it can be really overwhelming to take the first step toward a more ethical closet when there are seemingly five million ways to do it “wrong.” But also like veganism, the most important step is the very first one and once you’re on the path you can only do better from there. There are lots of reasons to put more thought into what you’re filling your closet with – the environment and human rights are two good ones. I recently wrote at length about my own experience that opened my ..read more

Vegan Pretzel Dogs

1y ago
From BakeandDestroy.net: It’s National Hot Dog Day, a very important holiday in the city of Chicago. So, I’m sharing this recipe for pretzel dogs. Honestly, it’s kind of a hybrid between pretzel and bagel dogs and if you wanted to top them with Everything But the Bagel seasoning and call them Bagel Dogs no one’s going to stop you. I recommend these to be made with Upton’s Naturals Updogs, because I helped develop the recipe for those, and therefore, think they’re the best veggie dog available. (P.S. This illustration was done by Betty Turbo, and the photo is by Celine Steen!) Print Vegan Pre ..read more

From BakeandDestroy.net: I had the pleasure of speaking with animal rescuer and sanctuary founder Christopher Vane on his podcast Live from Little Bear Sanctuary. If you aren’t familiar, definitely click that link and read Christopher’s story! We had a really nice chat about the benefits of being an #oldvegan, what we would eat on Pig Island, and our mutual love of cupcakes and New York City. You can watch it or listen a lot of different ways, but a few easy ones are Facebook and YouTube . You can support Christopher’s work at Little Bear Sanctuary with a donation or merch purchase here!

Friday Five: For the Dogs

From BakeandDestroy.net: It’s been quite a while since I dedicated a Friday Five post to dogs. In fact, when I wrote Gifts for Obsessed Pet Parents, Lulu was my only pet. But now we have Flapjack and the amount of things I buy for dogs has more than doubled. Lulu also recently developed some tummy troubles that her vet dubbed “dog IBS” so everything on this list that’s edible has proven to be tummy trouble-proof. But you should always be careful introducing new foods to dogs, especially older dogs. 1. Bramble Plant-Based Pet Food The girls try Bramble Just before we moved into our new place ..read more

From BakeandDestroy.net: Pizza for Everyone is ready for Chicago pick up – have you ordered yours yet? A few months back, my friend Derrick, owner of Paulie Gee’s Logan Square and the Paulie Gee’s Slice Shop in Wicker Park, asked if I’d be interested in contributing a vegan pizza recipe to a book being put together to raise money for loads of great local causes. I said no. End of story. Just kidding! I said yes, and ended up contributing not one, but three recipes! Since then, the book has received a super cool design treatment by Zach Sherwood and will be available for Chicago pick up startin ..read more
