vegancation atlanta

long time no post…. i haven’t finished my trinidad / tobago vegan adventure post yet…. and i haven’t really been traveling as much as i did last year. i planned a trip up to atlanta with a great friend to stay with her aunt in roswell, georgia. she was well prepared for the vegan food…

day two in brooklyn

no trip to brooklyn can be complete without a trip to my favorite donut shop on the planet. dunwell doughnuts is my happy place and on such a dismal day in american history i decided to eat my feelings. fruity pebbles heart of america (jelly filled) thyme apricot – YUMMMM buttered rosemary – YUMMMM cinnamon…

a quick trip to brooklyn

squeak. pinch me. is this real life? my mom and i planned a trip to DC for women’s march 01/21/17 but i told her i needed to make a pit stop in nyc. you see my vegan idol / favorite cookbook author opened a restaurant in brooklyn and i needed to try it. so we…

day six: oakland

another day in the bay.
