I love supporting the efforts of other vegan-driven endeavors, like cookbooks and new products, by reviewing them here upon request. In order for them to appear on this site, they must be vegan and I have to truly love and believe in them. Some samples of my past work may be accessed here and here.

If you are looking for a vegan food writer, I'd love to hear from you on ways we can work together.

If you are interested in food photography, we'd be happy to discuss pricing and other details.

  1. Just discovered your blog and think it is excellent and fun. I really intend to follow your recipe for grilled cheese sandwich with French onion soup....sounds great!
    Although I don't publish recipes, I do have my own blog just for fun and sharing, about my own "conversion" a year ago to vegetarian and soon after, vegan. I especially agree with much of your philosophy and views in your profile. Similarly, my wife remains an ardent meat-eater, but occasionally enjoys my vegan cooking. Thought you might enjoy seeing my blog. I look forward now to following yours.

  2. I just saw your recipe for vegan crab cakes. They look so good! My only hesitation is due to the use of hearts of palm in your recipe. Depending on the harvesting process, they could kill the trees they are harvesting from. Knowing this, I am not sure I feel comfortable eating heart of palm. Do you have a substitution for heart of palm?

    1. I use Native Forest Hearts of Palm -- the hearts are harvested from stalks of select wild Euterpe palms, which grow back again - a renewable resource. See

      I also have alternate crab cake recipes on the blog, using

  3. Any chance you could veganize a bread pudding recipe? I love the way you did creme brulee and panna cotta- when I saw this I thought of you...

    1. Looks intriguing -- I will add it to my "to do" list -- thanks!

  4. Hi! Just discovered your blog and am a fan! I have a friend who recently moved to Boston area (living in Plymouth until she gets a place in Boston, most likely). She is having a hard time finding markets that offer a good variety of health products (having lived in LA and NYC for the past 10 years she is spoiled!)
    I know there must be some good places, any tips I can pass along?
    Thank you!

  5. I love your blog and am trying one of the low mein noodle dishes tonight. My husband who was strictly a meat and potato guy 22 years ago, has fully embraced vegetarian eating. He admittedly has had difficulty forsaking cheese, but I'm optimistic. I would love to have a copy of your cook book. Deborah Herman
