Zeroll Original Ice Cream ScoopI used to think that ice cream scoops were kind of a joke. Why not just use a spoon and run it under warm water before for the best scooping action? That's all fine and dandy if you just want to get ice cream into a bowl. There's something to be said about presentation though, especially when it comes to desserts. As humans, we're very visual when it comes to interpreting things like food and this does make a difference with how food is perceived. You might only be concerned with getting ice cream into your mouth with the least amount of effort but if you're interested in making the best possible eating experience then it's a good idea to pay attention to your visual presentation. Also if you frequently serve ice cream, convenience is key. When it comes to ice cream this is where the Zeroll Original Ice Cream Scoop comes in.

Go Max Go Candy BarsWhen was the last time you had a really good candy bar? I mean to the point of where it rivaled an artisan chocolate? When I heard about these my initial thoughts were that it was great someone had finally started making candy bars without all the space age ingredients and animal by products- but they would still probably taste just like the candy bars they were trying to duplicate. I would then be back to square one. Wasn't one of the hidden benefits of veganism being that you didn't have to worry about accidentally eating two snickers bars at one sitting? Boy was I wrong about that assumption.

For years I used a spatula with a plastic handle. One day the handle broke in half and I figured I'd have to buy a new one. I found that the half-length handle spatula was actually pretty cool! It allowed me to get into large jars and blenders with the maneuverability of a Yamaha RZ350. It puzzled me as to why it was so hard to find different spatula options. Today I stumbled upon the Isi Silicone Scraper Spatula.

Sweet and Sara Peanut Butter SmoresThese were awesome! They consist of a layer of graham cracker crust with a thin layer of peanut butter topped by a marshmallow then covered in a thin layer of dark chocolate. The graham cracker crust fell apart a little too easily but luckily it was still anchored to the smore by the peanut butter layer. The marshmallow part was very well done- if you fed this to a non-vegan they wouldn't consider it being vegan for even a second. Every bite results in getting all of the layers which was great, and who can go wrong with peanut butter, marshmallow, graham cracker and chocolate?

Vegan fudge is pretty rare which is sad. Fortunately, Allison's Gourmet has noticed this and taken the initiative to change this situation. This fudge is really rich and smooth. There was a small hint of coconut which complemented the chocolate which was nice. It's extremely soft and lacked chewiness which would normally be a negative for me but didn't bother me in this case. I found it to be a little on the sweet side. The walnuts on top were a great contrast to the chocolate. Overall a great fudge! This fudge contains the follwing ingredients in order by weight: organic sugar, organic fair-trade cocoa, organic walnuts, organic coconut milk, organic coconut butter, organic vanilla, sea salt.

Tips for Perfect Vegan Cookies Every TimeWhether you choose to indulge in chocolate chip or something a bit more exotic, there’s nothing better than a freshly baked, warm and delicious cookie. Unless, of course, that cookie is also of the vegan variety. While there are a number of great vegan cookie recipes out there, it’s sometimes important to get back to basics and look at what really makes a cookie come out great, as even the best recipe can be botched by a lack of attention to detail.

Mise en PlaceMise en place, pronounced 'MEEZ ahn plahs', translates to "put in place". It means to have all your ingredients, cookware and your kitchen prepped and ready to go before doing your cooking or baking. With mise en place, recipes are reviewed and necessary ingredients and equipment are checked. Mise en place is used extensively in the food industry and is of equal importance to the recipe itself.

Mise in place is simply the act of just reading the directions, fully understanding and preparing yourself for the task you're about to do. If you bought furniture that needed to be assembled, you'd want to practice a variant of mise en place called "reading the directions first" for best results. You should get in the habit of mise en place every time you bake.

Building Your Vegan Kitchen Part 1 - CookwareMaking the decision to start vegan baking or to take it more seriously is a really good idea if I do say so myself. I'm warning you though- the more you get into vegan baking, the more you will get into vegan baking, until you do things like start vegan companies, build websites and write books. You have been warned. Things get much easier as you go along but one way to make things as easy and fun as possible is to pimp out your kitchen with the best tools and most useful ingredients. It's not that expensive I promise. This is Part 1 of a 3 part article on how to get that done.

Wild FermentationI had to go into the office on a Saturday recently. Upon getting to the office front door I found that my key wasn't cut right and I couldn't get in. I then decided that in order to make my trip worthwhile I would have to stop by BabyCakes and Bluestockings Bookstore in NYCs Lower East Side on my way home. Browsing through the isles of Bluestockings a peculiar book caught my eye: Wild Fermentation: The Flavor, Nutrition, and Craft of Live-Culture Foods by Sandor Ellix Katz.

Being a vegan baker, a home brewer and a DIY freak I knew I had to go in for a closer look. As soon as I flipped through a few pages, I was thankful I had to go to the office that day- I may have never ended up finding this book.

This weekend my good friends are getting married in Palm Springs. I'm also taking advantage of this time off to go camping in Joshua Tree National Park and visit a friend in LA. In the past I've often grappled with the difficulty of running around trying to find nourishing food while traveling. There's nothing worse than needing something nourishing and not being able to find it as you slowly feel your body running out of energy. Enter The Vegan Survival Kit.

Sugar and Glycemic Index - Different Sweeteners ComparedMy particular view on sweeteners is that they are drugs that just so happen to be legal. Like many drugs, sugar isn't necessarily bad unless you consume too much. When you ingest sugar, it gets released into the bloodstream and your blood sugar level rises. Your pancreas then secretes insulin to stabilize this blood sugar level and excess much of the sugars get moved to the liver where it can be further processed or excreted with urine. The way in which your pancreas excretes insulin is called the insulin response and putting too much stress on it can wear it out. This can lead to things like weight gain and long term risks like diabetes and hypoglycemia if left unchecked.
