In addition to rescuing animals (ARC specializes in busting puppy mills, dog fighting rings, and hoarding situations), Scotlund is also an incredibly talented artist.

Saving Nero

Hendrick Boards is among my favorite companies in existence. Run by two brothers, this skateboard & apparel company donates a massive amount of their profits (typically around 40%, depending on the item) to independent, deserving animal rescue organizations (they have more than 300 rescue partners!). When you shop with them, the donation sparked by your […]

Bean & Lentil Chili with Corn Muffins

I have an addiction to recipes by Isa Chandra Moskowitz for The Post Punk Kitchen. As much as I like to design my own meals, theppk.com is where I go whenever I need inspiration or a quick idea. Her recipes never let me down! This meal was inspired by what she called “Meat Beany Chili & […]

Boycotting Businesses That Sell Fur: Yes or No?

(originally posted 7/10/2013) I took this photo last month in my local Nordstrom location. This “vegan skirt” sign caught my eye (thanks to its prominent display) within 15 seconds of entering the store. My first reaction was to be thrilled; five years ago, Nordstrom would never have boasted “vegan” skirts, but rather would have hidden them away due to […]

Creamy, Cheesy, Pasta Sauce: The Basics

When I first went vegan, I thought I was saying goodbye to my beloved creamy pastas (Mac ‘n Cheese, Fettuccine Alfredo, Penne a la Vodka Sauce, I’d list more but I’m already getting hungry…). Tragically, it took me nearly two years to discover the magic of cashew cream, and another two or so years to begin […]
