Groundswell Greetings

I remember being so excited to get mail as a kid. Now as an adult, I'm even more excited to get a personal card in the mail when it's usually just bills and junk mail. Even better when they're hilarious and well designed! For a card along those lines, you must check...

10 Things I Love About Philadelphia

In exactly one week, I'll be on the road to Denver. With that in mind, I wanted to share with you some of my favorite things about this place I call home, Philadelphia. Philadelphia has been home for the past 5 years. Before that, I lived in the Philly suburbs for...

Philly Favs: Honey’s Sit ‘N Eat

It's Sunday, so let's talk brunch. Honey's Sit 'N Eat in Northern Liberties is in my top 5 vegetarian brunch spots in the city. Their tofu scramble is the best in the city, but the other day I had their vegetarian biscuits and gravy! That dish was one of my favorites...

Philly Made: Bluebird Distilling

Last week I had the opportunity to join a group of Philly bartenders and spirits experts at Bluebird Distilling in Phoenixville, a town just outside of Philadelphia. I tasted their spirits at Martha Bar before so I was excited to see where the magic happens. Here are...

Philly Favs: Beiler’s Donuts

Philly Favs: Mushmina

This isn't the first time I've written about Mushmina, and for good reason. This local Philly store was founded by sisters, one based in Morocco and the other in West Philly. Together they work with talented artists and craftsmen and women from Morocco to create a...

Philly Eats: Bar Bombon

One thing I love about Philadelphia is the vegan/vegetarian food scene. We have SO many great all-vegan restaurants, and those that aren't usually have at least one or two options (sometimes more!) on the menu for vegans or vegetarians. Joining the ranks is Bar...

My Favorite Cheesesteak In Philadelphia

I was recently talking with a few friends about our own favorite cheesesteak in the city, which is a never ending debate here in Philadelphia. Being vegetarian, my selection was a little different than everyone else's and it reminded me that I've been meaning to share...

Front Street Cafe

Philadelphia has a pretty great vegan and vegetarian scene which is a big reason why I love calling this city home. I've traveled pretty extensively throughout the US and abroad and no other place even comes close to the vegetarian cuisine in Philly. Front Street...
