Tempting Barbecue Recipes

Grills Gone Vegan_low resIt’s summertime.  Time to light up the grill.  Yes, there are endless possibilities for grilling without using meat or fish. One option is to check out this wonderful cookbook from the Book Publishing Company, which captures a wide variety of possibilities in one easy-to-use book.

Grills Gone Vegan is the latest cookbook from Tamasin Noyes. Tamasin has been vegetarian for over thirty years, and vegan for much of that time. She and her husband, Jim, live in northeastern Ohio with their two cats. Along the way, Tamasin has baked for a vegan café, worked in restaurants, created a nonprofit group that sent handmade cards to children with life-threatening illnesses, and had a vegan soap company for ten years.

Passionate about cooking, Tamasin spent several years as a cookbook tester for some of the leading vegan authors. She is also the author of American Vegan Kitchen and the coauthor of Vegan Sandwiches Save the Day.

Big Tofu Heist

TofuOnly in the Northwest! Two “foodlums” have stolen an entire truckload of tofu, yes tofu. Police concede that there might be a black market for tofu and comment “Um, it may be hard to penetrate that network.”

The tofu was stolen in Portland from a Seattle natural food distributor’s truck while the driver was making a delivery. A little while later, the truck was found only few miles away but the tofu was missing. The two suspects are still on the run. In the meantime, if anyone going door to door offers to sell you about two tons of tofu: think twice!
