Broken Grounds Cafe

What better way to celebrate my fifth vegetarian anniversary, than at an amazing, new local vegan spot? And when I say amazing, I mean amazing. In visiting this three-month-old Newton cafe, Broken Grounds Cafe is full of vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and organic food and drinks, I quickly fell in love with everything about it. The […]

Chai Tea Cupcakes

Half the vegan dishes I make wouldn’t be complete without some cashew mayo, cashew ranch dressing, cashew queso or cashew cheesecake. Cashew butter brings my love to a whole new level. It’s rich, creamy, decadent and luxurious. And it’s a […]
