Caramel Apples for Halloween

Caramel Apples for Halloween

Happy almost-Halloween, everyone! It’s time to stock up on the treats for the kiddos, so check out my previous post from 2009 on “Cruelty-Free” Halloween Candy before you head to the grocery store. And this week you can cast your vote for your fave Halloween goodies on the Cruelty-Free faves Facebook Page. I’ll be posting the results on Friday! This year, my treat to you is a recipe for Vegan Caramel Apples. I’ve been so inspired lately by my friends in New York and New Jersey that have been posting pictures on Facebook of apple-picking excursions! My high school classmate Lisa was sweet enough to let me share one of her pictures with everyone on today’s blog. I found this recipe on the “Very Vegan Holiday” blog, from 2009. I’m allergic to apples, but caramel apples always look so pretty, and they seem so much a part of this holiday, even if I only can look and not taste. Enjoy one for me! ingredients: 10 Granny Smith apples (washed and completely dry) 1 1/2 cups chopped roasted peanuts 3/4 cup soymilk 3/4 cup of Earth Balance or other margarine 2 teaspoons cornstarch 3/4 cup corn syrup 1 cup sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 10 wooden sticks baking sheet and aluminum foil non-stick cooking spray bowl of ice water you’ll also need a candy thermometer directions: Setting up: Insert a stick into each apple. Line baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the soy milk, 1/4 cup margarine (melted), and cornstarch. fit a large, heavy saucepan with the thermometer. Over a medium-low heat, cook 3/4 of the above mixture with the remaining 1/2 cup margarine, corn syrup, and sugar to 280 degrees. You only need to stir once or twice. Quickly remove pan from heat and dip the bottom of the pan in the ice water. This stops the cooking process. Stir in the remaining 1/4 cup of the soy milk/cornstarch/margarine mixture, plus the vanilla extract. Allow caramel to cool for another minute. It will thicken. One at a time, dip and turn the apples in the caramel, letting any excess simply drip off; dip the bottom of each aple in the chopped peanuts before placing each on the baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Once all apples have been dipped, place in refrigerator and allow to cool for at least 10 minutes before...

The Social & Sexy Vegan: Condoms!

The Social & Sexy Vegan: Condoms!

Since I’ve been focusing on the social life this week, I’d be remiss if I didn’t include a bit on vegan condoms. The mention of vegan condoms usually prompts some puzzled looks. Aren’t all condoms vegan?  So, here’s the scoop: although latex does indeed come from rubber trees, most condoms also are made with an animal by-product called casein, which is derived from milk. Here are some options for the sexy vegan: Glyde Condoms These condoms have been around for quite some time, and they still seem to be the most readily available here and abroad. In addition to regular condoms, Glyde offers a variety of flavors such as Strawberry and Licorice. You can purchase these on Glyde’s web site or from other online stores catering to the vegan crowd, such as  The Sensual Vegan and Cosmo’s Vegan Shoppe. Sir Richard’s Condom Company This brand is my recent find. The company is based in Boulder, Colorado, and the condoms are available for purchase online and in select stores. I picked up a 3-condom variety pack at Food Fight vegan grocery in Portland. Styles available: classic ribbed, ultra-thin, extra-large, and “pleasure dots.” What’s super-cool about this company: it has established a “buy-one, give one” program: for every condom someone purchases, Sir Richard’s donates a condom to a developing country. Bonus tip! To spice things up, The Sensual Vegan and Babeland (search “vegan”) offer fun “sexccessories” — everything from vegan lubricants to faux-fur...

The Social & Single Vegan: Internet Dating

Whether you’re looking for a fun fling or a special someone, these dating sites can help you expand your social circle. Have fun! VeganDating.org I like that there’s a “dietary practice” scroll down that lets you get more specific (i.e., macrobiotic). VeggieDate.org Winner of VegNews magazine’s 2010 Veggie Award for Favorite Dating Site. PerfectMatch.com Also offers “Vegan Date Night Recipes” and “success stories” to keep you optimistic. VeganPassions.com Groups you can join on the site include Animal Rights, No Animal Products, Eco-friendly, and Former Vegetarian & Now Vegan.  FreeVeganDating.com Claims to be the fastest growing vegan dating website, which means there will be a large pool of potentials: if a date doesn’t become a true match, there will be plenty of other faux-fish in the sea 😉 Veg Speed Dating I almost participated in a speed-dating event once in my single days, just to see what it was like. But it was right before moving from NYC to Tucson, and I decided setting myself up for possibly meeting someone in New York  at that point probably was not the best idea. So my dear vegetarian, vegan, and veg-curious friends… I must now experience vicariously through you! Let me know if you give speed dating a go....

The Social Vegan: “Vegan Drinks” events

The Social Vegan: “Vegan Drinks” events

A simple idea that is SO great! Although Vegan Drinks just started a few years ago in New York, now there are similar events in at least twenty-four different cities. Over happy-hour drinks, happy vegans swap business cards as well as flyers and brochures about their own projects. Not only do these gathering give people a chance to connect with other like-minded people around town, but they also have become a way to raise money for various efforts: part of the bar proceeds usually are donated to a worthwhile cause. If there isn’t a Vegan Drinks happening where you live, why not be the toast of the town by hosting an event? You also can join Vegan Drinks on Facebook and follow on Twitter. Cities with a Vegan Drinks group include: Atlanta Austin Baltimore Boston Boulder Burlington, VT Cleveland Dallas Fort Lauderdale Las Vegas Los Angeles Nashville New Orleans Philadelphia Salt Lake City San Diego San Francisco Seattle Minneapolis-St. Paul Washington, D.C. New York  Cheers!...

The Social Vegan: Meet-Ups, FB groups, & Potlucks

I’ve heard many people express the concern that going vegetarian or vegan might somehow put a damper on with their social lives. Actually, it’s remarkably easy to choose cruelty-free and still have a pretty booked social calendar. First of all, choosing a vegetarian or vegan diet doesn’t mean you can no longer get together with non-veg friends!  Second, there are plenty of opportunities for vegetarians and vegans to meet each other. Whether it’s an informal Facebook group or a monthly meet-up in your city, in this tech-happy universe it’s quite easy to connect. Vegan Meet-Ups & Facebook Groups My husband Seth, computer wizard and social media guru that he is, took it upon himself to create a “Vegan Tucson” Facebook group page: not only are we sharing recipe ideas, but we also organized a meet-up last month at thevegan restaurant Lovin’ Spoonfuls. Seth also created a new web site called VegDinner, which allows people in any city to organize a get-together. Potluck Parties One of my favorite ways to get together with friends is by hosting Veg Potluck Parties  at our home. I usually send out an Evite, which makes it easy to know about how many people to expect, and to send out a reminder when it gets closer to the date. Potlucks are a great, informal way of spending some time with the people we enjoy most. Sometimes our pot lucks consist of just a few friends, and other times we’ve hosted a full house. The beauty of the potluck is that, no matter how many are invited, there’s little preparation and minimal clean-up… and lots of de-lish food! Finally, I love the potluck because it’s something all our friends are able to enjoy. Even our non-vegetarian friends, who are not likely to attend a vegan meet-up anytime soon, love trying out all the fantastic food people bring to the party. You can search on Facebook or Google for your own city to see what’s happening in the local vegan community. Or maybe you’ll be inspired to host a potluck for people you already know. As the old Girl Scout song goes: “Make new friends, but keep the old — one is silver and the other’s gold.” If happy hours are more your social speed, check back with me...

In Portland for the Animal Law Conference

In Portland for the Animal Law Conference

This weekend, I’m in Portland for the 19th Annual Animal Law Conference at Lewis & Clark. The conference is the result of a collaboration between the Center for Animal Law Studies at Lewis & Clark, the Animal Legal Defense Fund, and the Lewis & Clark’s student chapter of the Animal Legal Defense Fund (SALDF). Each year, law students and lawyers come together to explore a wide range of hot topics in the field of Animal Law. This year’s theme is “Standing Up for Animals: Can a Bad Economy Inspire Greater Goodness?”  Topics include: Human Science: Is the End of Testing Within Reach? International Voices in Animal Law: Canada & Mexico Enforcement: Building a Case Against Cruelty Drawing Connections Between Animal law & Other Disciplines Whose Case is it Anyway? Animals’ vs. Owners’ Interests in Litigation International Voices in Animal Law: Switzerland & Egypt Using Your Law Degree to Help Sanctuaries Animal Shelters, Humane Societies, & Rescues: When Funding Dries Up Exotic Pets, People, and Public Policy Global Animal Concerns Making Cultural Judgments: Animals We Eat, Animals We Love Wolf re-Introduction, Management, and Protection Private Prosecutions & the Enforcement of Canadian Animal Protection Legislation As you can see, it’s a weekend packed with thought-provoking topics. It’s also a wonderful weekend of catching up with friends who, during the rest of the year, are scattered around the country — all doing amazing things on behalf of animals everywhere. Extra special for me this year: Joyce Tischler, who was my instructor for the law class on Farmed Animals this past summer, will be the keynote speaker at tonight’s reception. The conference is sold out, but you can view most of the sessions through the live webinar option available on the conference’s web site. If you’re a law student or lawyer, mark your calendar for next October so you can join us!...
