NYC Adventures

This weekend I am going to NYC to visit a friend who's also vegan, and try out some great food! We are going to Peace Food Cafe and then to try out some vegan bakeries! I am looking forward to it, even though it's only an hour's train ride, I have only been to NYC a handful of times in my life. After doing some online research, they have a vegan ice cream place, many vegan bakeries, and over 40 vegan restaurants!

Vegetarian Summerfest

This was my first year attending NAVS Vegetarian Summerfest, and I had a blast! I met so many great people. The food was amazing (all vegan), and I made an effort to try new things. Some of which I am now hooked on (daiya cheese) and some things I can't wait to make (greener smoothies).

If you've never been, it's a 5 day conference held near Pittsburgh, PA. Housing and workshops are on the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown, which is very scenic. There are hiking trails and lots of open space. While walking the trails, I saw bunnies, groundhogs, raccoons and deer.

I learned so much from the workshops, and I cannot wait to use the new knowledge to enrich my life!

The Beginning

I made cupcakes for the Fourth of July holiday, they were vegan vanilla cupcakes with raspberry flavoring, vegan butter-cream icing, sprinkles and blueberries. They were super tasty!

I am beginning this blog in order to document my next year of adventures. My birthday is approaching (on Wednesday) and I've decided I need to start doing more. I want to go on one adventure per week and bake or cook one new recipe a week as well!

My first adventure will be attending the Vegetarian Summerfest 2010 in Pittsburgh, PA on July 7th-11th. I will give a full recap after I get home!
