A New York vegan State of Mind

The roving reporter cruises on the big Apple! In in the brief couple days we have together, I fully intend to continue the adventure of sampling fresh, local, organic Vegan delights - from the multitude of restaurants available.

The last time I was there I discovered Peacefood Cafe -- which I loved -- and is worth an encore. - On the Holistic Holiday at Sea I had the great fortune to dine with a lovely young woman and her lovely folks -- all from NYC. Of course, I got a great new recommendation -- that I'm eager to check out: Caravan of Dreams. I've already gotten a welcoming email from General Manager, Reilly. If time, I'm thinking about a return visit to Candle Cafe, or who knows where!

Patti Mock, another fellow travelor on the deep blue seas, had given me a couple great tips of making desserts -- and let me know that BabyCakes bakery in NYC now has a cookbook. Perhaps I'll stumble upon the bakery this time.. she also encouraged me to make some buckwheat chocolate chip cookies and vegan pumpkin pie (she and I agree about the wonders of coconut milk) Her recipes were adapted from Karina' which I have not yet gotten to view. Have you?

Marilou Henner also had a couple of great websites for travels: and I'd love to hear your reviews and other sites you'd recommend!

I'll share more of my own Spring recipes later! Hints: leeks, watercress, rhubbarb, millet.

Caoi Baby!

Yours in Wellness, Gratitude and the Joy of Spring!
