Superstar VegWebber of the Week: Capture!

This week's Superstar VegWebber is Capture! Yes, she of the Sweet Ass Blog and all its awesomeness! A super fun addition to the VW crew, her posts always make me giggle! Plus, her favorite restaurant is one of my all time faves too so I feel kindred! Read more about Capture here: http://vegweb.com/index.php?action=profile;u=74899 and then let her know how sweet ass you think she is!

VegWebber since? July 1, 2007

Vegetarian, Vegan or ? Vegan

Where do you call home? Ypsilanti, Michigan

What do you do when you're not on VegWeb? I am a full time grad student, an animal/human rights activist, and an outdoorsy girl (give me a mountain to climb or a river to kayak!)

Do you have blog or website? You bet your sweet ass I do--it's called "Capture's Sweet Ass Blog" and it is featured right here on VegWeb--the majority of the content is locked for "buddy status." Message me to become a reader and you can read all about my funny, strange, juicy, and often times tragic quest for love.

Do you tweet? Only at other birds

One unique thing should know about you? When I was little I bite my tongue off and had to have it re-attached...

What’s the best thing about being vegan? (if you are!) Knowing that my lifestyle is a conscious decision against cruelty, greed, and corporate irresponsibility. That is pretty damn awesome.

Favorite romantic recipe on VegWeb? Coconut Banana French Toast! Serve it with tofu scramble and kisses http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=12270.0 but really, any recipe you make for someone the next morning is sexy-delicious, even if it is a bowl of raisin bran!!

Favorite recipe on VegWeb to make for non-vegans to show them how amazing vegan food can be? Black Bean Sweet Potato Chili http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=10272.0 so crazy good! This is a very flexible chili you can dink around with--eat it by its self--but I think over rice and in tortillas is the best! Non-veg people will drool over it!

Favorite recipe for St. Patrick's Day? Tempha Reuben with lots of sauerkraut, veg-thousands island dressing and hey, throw on some veg-cheese too! Don't forget your fried potatoes and a good brew to round it out! Yum!!

One thing you wish you could make vegan but haven’t succeeded at yet? I have been fortunate not to hit this wall yet! With the help of the VegWeb community I have been able to find vegan versions of everything I have ever wanted to make--vegans are super hero's like that!

#1 Cooking secret/tip? Don't be rigid to a recipe--have fun and experiment--sure, you'll mess up a few cakes or batches of cookies and your seitan might taste funny the first couple tries--but go with it! Love what you create!!

Best music to cook by? Bob Marley. Let that Rastafarian love just seep into you!

Three people you'd most like to have dinner with? My raw sister and vegweb hero Storm, the man I will spend the rest of my life with (where are you??), and the Baroque artist Caravaggio (nobody said I had to be realistic right??)

All time favorite restaurant? Wayward Cafe in Seattle--best vegan pancakes ever! (okay...and then go across the street to Pizza Pi and have the best vegan pizza of your life!!)

French fries or ice cream? Both please!

Soy milk, rice milk, almond milk? Almond mylk

Tofu, tempeh, or seitan? Rosewood Tofu made right here in Ann Arbor-Ypsi! Nom! Always support local food sources!!

Yay Capture!!! And yeah for local tofu! I miss my local tofu from the co-op.

WMLaura and the Admins are working hard to get my blog back on line--but if the problem keeps me down much longer I will post new blogs in  "Exile" under a new blog here on VW! So either way you will get your Sweet Ass fix soon! <3

Apparently I have so much content that it is bogging down the system. It's going to be 3 weeks or so before the system can be updated. I want to start a new blog--but I don't think you can have two different blogs under one name and since all my blogs are "buddy" locked there would be a long process of getting everyone to buddy a new account-ahhhh! it's such a mess--I have 4 new blogs too--and another one to write...you can NOT EVEN BELIEVE the stuff that has happened lately either! Oi vey...
