The last stretch of summer is always the hardest for me. I want nothing more than a bit of a break from the scorching temperatures and blazing sun. Yet I’m not craving fall and winter foods yet. I’m just in search for a bit of a relief from the weather. This usually involves eating cold appetizers for dinner. It’s like grazing and I’m really into it when the temperatures heat up.

I wrote a book! It’s called The Year of Cozy and it comes from my home to yours. The book is driven by the idea that sometimes we can’t really control the larger things in life, but we can most certainly decide how we spend our free time. It’s about living with a bit of intention and choosing to spend our time making things that bring us happiness. For me, cooking is the place where I love to lose myself. There’s nothing more that brings me more joy than baking and cooking and crafting.

The sun is a bit vicious right now, so let’s make something to cool ourselves down. I say a cooler is the way to go.

If you’re reading this, I’m guessing you fall into one of two camps: 1) Totally excited for a vegan alternative to this unsustainable eco-trainwreck 2) Totally horrified and asking “why…?”. To be honest, I had some mixed feelings when a client asked me to come up with a vegan alternative for unagi. As far as fish goes, this is kind of like asking for a vegan roast chicken or porterhouse steak.
