List of Vegan Ingredients and Foods

This list is a great resource for anyone looking to incorporate vegan elements into their diet. Although this list refers exclusively to Trader Joe's products, it gives you a good idea of how varied (and tasty) vegan ingredients and foods can be.

Trader Joe's Vegan Products

(I do get the irony of posting about vegan ingredients on a site called Made With Butter.)


Happy 2012!

I started off the new year with a biscuit sandwich and salted caramel bar at Huckleberry Cafe in Santa Monica.

Our team wishes you and your loved ones a wonderful new year filled with laughter, joy and good eats.


Supporting Small Businesses This Holiday

Over the next few weeks, I will be doing my best to support small businesses as I shop for holiday gifts for my family and friends. I know that many of you feel the same way, so I wanted to highlight the four wonderful independent companies whose ads are in our very first issue. 

Whimsy & Spice offers an assortment of handmade cookies, brownies and marshmallows. The classic sampler box means that you don't have to choose between the chocolate orange cardamom shortbread cookies or the espresso brownies with dulce de leche.


Moop bags are designed and constructed from start to finish in a Pittsburgh studio. Each bag is as beautiful as it is functional. My favorite is the Letter Bag, pictured below.

Minted offers a modern selection of luxurious custom stationery. Thanks to the varied assortment of personalized notecards and journals, you can find something for just about every personality type. 

House 8810 is full of cheerful retro goods for the home. If you're struggling for the right words to tell someone just how much they mean to you, this kitchen towel should do the trick.


Waui Design on Kickstarter

UPDATE: Robert has met his goal! If you missed out, you can still order his shirts directly here

There is now just 24 hours left to pledge on Waui Design's Kickstarter project. Owner Robert True has a gift for design and illustration—you can see some of his work in our first issue. Score one of Waui Design's cute T-shirts for yourself with a pledge of $30 or more.  





In Their Words: Natasha and Lindsey

Natasha and Lindsey collaborated on "Fresh, Healthy and Delicious," an article on Southeast Asian salads in our Fall 2011 issue. Both did an extensive amount of research to produce the flavorful recipes and beautiful illustrations found in the article.
