    "This cookbook is imaginative and creative while also featuring accessible vegan recipes that are both healthy (mostly) and just super delicious all around. Two thumbs way up, and all of my other fingers as well, for this creative little cookbook."
    —Audrey Farnsworth, Fodor's Travel (on The Yellow Edition)


    Imagine 'Parts Unknown' with Anthony Bourdain. But focused on hyping vegan food. Crossed with 'Scooby Doo.' Two Dollar Radio Guide to Vegan Cooking: The Pink Edition is two things at once: a practical guide to vegan cheffing, and a playful epic of the stories behind the recipes. Join them in this guide as they craft delectable recipes, solve mysteries, and slay Vegan Hunger Demons.

    We are all explorers, vegan food explorers — join us on this culinary journey as we slay Vegan Hunger Demons.

    Two Dollar Radio Guide to Vegan Cooking: The Pink Edition is two things at once: a practical guide to vegan cheffing, and a playful epic of the stories behind the recipes.

    Toy Story 2 proved to skeptics that sequels can best the original, and with this second volume of their legendary cookbook saga, executive vegan chefs Jean-Claude van Randy and Speed Dog out-chef their celebrated younger selves (if that’s even possible).

    Contained in this Guide to Vegan Cooking are comfort food recipes with an international flourish, such as Pastelón – Puerto Rican “lasagna” layered with plantains; Bunny Chow – a curry bread bowl favored by South African surfers; and Chilaquiles – a popular Mexican breakfast dish, finally something the rockeros and the metaleros can agree on.

    Rest assured, Randy’s Sheboygan roots run deep, as there is a dedicated section on vegan “cheezes,” as well as debaucherous Midwestern staples like pimento cheeze, French toast sandwiches, and pizza.

    Vegan Hunger Demons do not sleep. Thankfully Randy and Speed Dog are laced up and ready for battle.

    Night Rooms is a poetic, intimate collection of personal essays that weaves together fragmented images from horror films and cultural tropes to meditate on anxiety and depression, suicide, body image, identity, grief, and survival.

    Whether competing in shopping mall beauty pageants, reflecting on childhood monsters and ballet lessons, or recounting dark cultural ephemera while facing grief and authenticity in the digital age, Gina Nutt’s shifting style echoes the sub-genres that Night Rooms highlights—spirit-haunted slow burns, possession tales, slashers, and revenge films with a feminist bent.

    Refracting life through the lens of horror films, Night Rooms masterfully leaps between reality and movies, past and present—because the “final girl’s” story is ultimately a survival story told another way.
