Food Politics

Hi Everyone!

Welcome back to the Bad Kitty Bakery blog. I have taken some time off for various reasons, but it feels very good to be back. It coincides with me taking even better care of myself, spending more time with friends and family, and learning that you do not always have to put yourself first but you do have to put yourself in the running.

Really, though, returning to the blog is an act of activism for me. Paula Deen may have Diabetes type 2. Some other members of the vegan community started saying that she made herself sick with her food, and others. In essence, she deserved it. I cannot and will not accept that. A lot of politics have been taken over with people on one far side or another, with nothing in between. I see that happening in the food community as well. People like Michael Simon and Anthony Bourdain espouse the virtues of eating any and every animal. On our side, people who are healthy vegan doctors and their strict followers say Paula Deen ‘needs to donate her body to science’. It’s time for some food moderates.

This blog will just feature good old fashioned vegan food. Some of it is good for you, some isn’t. It will all taste divine and be done with love.

The first recipe is for my favorite salad dressing. I also really love dipping cucumber slices in this. There is something about the coolness of the cucumber and the richness of the dressing that makes your toes curl right up. Best of all, it is only 4 simple ingredients.


Agave Mustard Dressing
Serves 2-4, or me with two cucumbers sliced up, watching the latest episode of Storage Wars.

1 tablespoon of white miso
1 tablespoon of agave
1 tablespoon of white balsamic vinegar
½ tablespoon or 1 ½ teaspoons of mustard

Whisk all ingredients together, enjoy. Will last at least two or three days in your refrigerator.
