Cake in the shape of Atari Game Console

Loren’s birthday was a great time for me to experiment and whip up a vegan birthday cake shaped like an Atari game console, complete with joysticks. Atari was my beloved companion when I was little.

Food Should Taste Good Chip Review

bags of food should taste good chips

I’ve already spoken about my love for the humble potato, so it should come as no surprise that when I was given the opportunity to try a variety of Food Should Taste Good® chips, I was more than willing to give my taste buds a workout. All chip varieties are gluten free, cholesterol free, have […]

You Can Make This: Vegan Potato Tots

There really seems to be a divide between the potato tot lover and the french fry aficionado. That divide is proven here at I Heart Veg, where Loren is soundly on the side of the tot, and Jeannie is all about the fry (but she is not picky about the cut- thick, ripple, whatever you […]

Vegans on the Move: An Update

Hello, friends! First, let me suggest that you never move during a major heat wave. Second, never move to a third floor apartment during a major heat wave. The 115 degree heat guaranteed a slow motion move that I honestly thought would never end. So, where has I Heart Veg landed? After a major shake […]

Transformational Moments in Life – An Update

Dear Friends, The future is uncertain for us. Our property in Illinois has not sold. Having to care and pay for two residences has been a hard stretch. As we’ve said before, we went all in for this dream, and there isn’t room for excesses. Since the property hasn’t sold, and the business is not […]
