Funny that I'm writing a post for an old fashioned cold remedy while I'm feeling a little under the weather. Hot Toddies in their original form contain whiskey, lemon, hot water, and honey. They are incredibly soothing when you're sick. The lemon gives you a boost of Vitamin C, the hot water and honey calm sore throats, and the whiskey helps you sleep. It's an old timey solution that I welcome with a few modifications. Especially in my current state.

I love a great homemade ginger ale. When I lived in LA I used to visit a Vietnamese restaurant in Silverlake called Gingergrass, and they had the best house made ginger ale. As a sucker for quality sodas I not only ordered the ginger ale with every meal there, but I would also drive from Burbank to Silverlake to get some to go. It was a real obsession for a season.

Happy New Year, dear readers! I hope you had a wonderful holiday filled with peaceful moments and delicious food. A large portion of my holiday was spent in Tallahassee, Florida, and let me tell you: I ate pretty well. Tallahassee has a surprising amount of vegan food available. It's definitely improved since our last visit.

Vegan Queso Blanco


Finally, a beautiful and mild vegan queso blanco for my repertoire. These days pre-made vegan cheese and vegan cheese recipes are a dime a dozen, but here's why I needed my own: I've never really liked cheese - not before I was vegan, and definitely not after. I was the weird kid at the table who pulled my cheese off of pizza (still do), and never ever ate cheese and crackers (still don't.) However - as with most things - there is one exception.
