Bake that dish

It’s pretty much winter in the northern hemisphere. We are in South Carolina and it’s gonna hit the 30’s tomorrow night. Sure we have a gas furnace and it’s in high gear keeping us from becoming icicles. One great trick for warming things up is firing up that oven and baking your dishes. 

Last night I threw a pan of wild rice mushroom pilaf into the oven with a cashew cheese sauce and it was mighty tasty. Tonight I went Italian with some soy curls and it came out pretty damn good. 

Make it then bake it and warm things up.

Who is Kristin Lajeunesse?

Kristin spent 18 months travelling the US in a van searching out and eating at vegan restaurants everywhere she went. All the while she journaled about it at her website Will Travel for Vegan Food. Here is her summary in her words:

I’m serious about this travel thing. In fact, in 2011 I completely adjusted my lifestyle in an effort to work exclusively online, so that I can work from virtually anywhere.

In January 2011 I left a wonderful full-time job with an amazing animal welfare organization so that I could pursue the art of food and travel discovery.

In order to support this mission I started my own freelance business and now earn a living teaching others how to build businesses, market and promote their work, and general badassery.

She has created a great resource for finding vegan restaurants in various states and cities around the US and world. [Click Here to Find a Vegan Restaurant]

She is an avid blogger and video blogger and started sharing some audio versions of various chapters of her book on her website:
