Zada Janes Corner Cafe Charlotte NC

Zada Jane’s Corner Cafe

(2)
July 28, 2014 • American, Restaurant Reviews

Zada Jane’s Corner Cafe (located in a former dry cleaners on Central Avenue in Charlotte, NC) is one of those bright, funky, Southern-style, breakfast-all-day places, similar to The Flying Biscuit or Tupelo Honey. Similar, but not the same. Zada Janes has far, far more vegetarian and vegan offerings than the Charlotte Tupelo Honey.  In fact,… Read More ›

Addicting Tempeh “Chicken” Salad (Vegan, Gluten Free)

(15) Tempeh Chicken Salad Sandwich

This recipe is adapted from the very charming book “Cookin’ Southern – Vegetarian Style,” by Ann Jackson, which I’ll be reviewing tomorrow. I’m not sure what made me try this recipe, since I usually hate tempeh.  The texture drives me wild.  Possibly it’s because I so fell in love with this little cookbook, I decided… Read More ›

Product Review: Amy’s Rice Macaroni with Dairy Free Cheeze (Vegan, Gluten Free)

(4) Amy's Vegan Macaroni and Cheese

So … Amy’s Kitchen has a new gluten free and dairy free Macaroni and Cheese!   I admit I approached this frozen meal with some trepidation. One, I’m one of the very fortunate ones who don’t have a problem with gluten.  And since I cook the majority of my food myself, my diet tends to be naturally… Read More ›

Cookin’ Southern Vegetarian Style by Ann Jackson

(7) Cookin Southern Vegetarian Style

I fell in love with this charming little Southern cookbook from the first page, when Ann is pondering what Southern cooking is.  She writes, “I knew it was more than bacon grease and fatback,” and then finally decides, “It’s attitude, pure and simple.” “It’s kitchens in summer and tomato sandwiches; Slapping mosquitoes and swatting flies;… Read More ›

Frugal Friday – Vegan Birthday Freebies

(12) Happy Birthday to Me

Recently, I celebrated another birthday.  (Which, for those who are wondering, puts me somewhere in between “younger than springtime” and “older than dirt.”) A long time ago, when we were both vegetarians, my partner signed us up for a number of “Birthday Freebies.”  Since our birthdays are close together, we were able to use our… Read More ›

Sunday Breakfast: Medu Vada Wraps

(4) medu vada with pita

Medu Vada is a popular South Indian fried snack made from urad dal (lentils) and traditionally served with sambar soup or coconut chutney. They remind me of savory, crispy little doughnuts. Although my South Indian friends insist they are not that difficult to make from scratch, I have not yet been courageous enough to try…. Read More ›
