Because the world can always use more vegan blogs, there are probably still people around who believe vegans live on twigs and tofu (or light and love, but that Blogger address was taken) and need to be shown the awesomeness and variety possible using plants, and, most importantly, my parents gave me a digital camera for my birthday so now I can spam the world with random pictures of food like all the cool vegans do.
I’m a somewhat geeky Dutch vegan who loves nice food but tends to be too lazy to actually make any.
My interests are fairly diverse and I can’t be bothered to list them here. The only one relevant to this blog is my new-found interest in photography, something in which I participate with much enthusiasm and little skill.
Most of the food I make can be described as “random stuff chucked together, often heated up, occasionally pureed”. Somewhat surprisingly, this actually leads to tasty stuff more often than not.
Everything I make is vegan of course, and while it’s certainly not a 100%, I do like using organic ingredients.
Mid-2008 I started a short-term (mostly) gluten-free project which lead to me trying to minimise gluten-y foods, especially the foods with pointless gluten sneakily hidden.
There are still plenty of meals with gluten, and I’m not bothered about it when I eat it somewhere else, but I am more conscious of it and enjoy experimenting.
Because of this I started tagging the gluten-free foods I make properly. Just check the “gluten-free” tag to find those posts.
Since I didn’t start this tagging until I started the project, the pre-project posts containing gluten-free foods aren’t tagged as such.
This will probably not be changed.
I suspect there are rather a lot of unconsciously gluten-free posts (if it weren’t for my liberal use of shoyu, at least. That’s sub-able, though) seeing as I’m not very good at that whole grain base thing and I don’t do much baking. At the moment I can’t be bothered going through them to re-tag.
I mentioned the lazy, right?
About this blog
-I love getting comments. Very much so. However, I do part-moderate them. Pre-emptively, so far I’ve had nothing but great comments, but still. I’ve spent enough time online to know that not all people play nice.
Regular commenters will have their comments posted rightaway, but comments from people commenting for the first time or people who’ve not commented in a while, have to wait until I approve them.
So if your comment doesn’t show up soon after posting it, you’ll have to wait until I’m behind a computer again. Which, unless something is up, shouldn’t take more than a day at the outside.
-Sometimes I edit a post after publishing it. If it’s anything relevant, something beyond basic grammar and spelling corrections, I add the ETA tag.
