A Review: Liquid Smoke

Liquid Smoke adds major flavor to dishes (like beans) that normally contain bacon or some other “smoked pig” type product. I tried it for the first time in some pinto beans and yum! It’s not animal derived, it’s just meant to bring a smokey flavor into your food (which is what most of us former omnis liked about “smoked pig” products anyway!). Almost all should be vegan but it never hurts to check. Just a tip, if you’re going to use it in beans, wait till the beans only have a few more minuets of cooking left, just enough time for the liquid smoke to sink in nicely without wasting a ton of the stuff poring more in when you have to put in more water.

Adopt an Animal (without the hassle)


Have you ever wanted to help out an animal in need but didn’t have the time or resources or didn’t want the mess? Well now is your chance! There are two main places to “adopt” online. For farm animals, checkout Farm Sanctuary. For wild animals (which you couldn’t responsibly adopt anyway since they aren’t “pets”) check out Defenders of Wildlife. These make great gifts for both the animals and the receiver. The Defenders of Wildlife adoptions even come with stuffed animals!

How the concept works is you pay a certain amount of money to be used on either a specific animal (as in Farm Sanctuary) or towards the good of the species as a whole (Defenders of Wildlife). Animals “available” include cows, chickens, pigs, rabbits, ducks, goats and sheep on Farm Sanctuary and anywhere from wolves to penguins to hummingbirds on Defenders of Wildlife.
