Asian Noodle Soup with Bok Choy and Shitake Mushrooms, Bok Choy, Edamame, Cashew and Orange Rice, and Cold Asparagus with Korean Sauce

You know what’s really annoying? Cookbooks that feel the need to name every recipe after ALL of its ingredients, so that my blog title is about three feet long. Obviously they were thinking of what this would do to me when they published the cookbook…and I DON’T appreciate the sentiment. But all that aside, this [...]

Tofu Dill Salad Sandwiches

I’m becoming a very big fan of lunch…I’ve been rediscovering the sandwich of late. Today I went with the Tofu Dill Sandwiches from VwaV, mostly because the ingredients were really basic and I had them…mostly. I had to replace the red onion with white, and the fresh dill with its dried counterpart. All the same, [...]

Mushroom and Onion Burger

The burgers themselves weren’t mushroom and onion, they were the ones I made A couple weeks ago and froze for enjoyment on a later date. I reconstituted some shitake mushrooms from the pantry, and then sliced them into slivers. They went into a medium skillet with half a large onion, cut into slivers, a couple [...]

Meatloaf (The Band) and Banana Split Pudding Brownies

Being somewhat fed up with the crumbly, rather bland, veggie meatloafs I’ve had in the past, I decided it was high time to try one of my own….and I was pretty happy with the results. It was somewhat crumbly until it had cooled for awhile and set up, but it still held its shape much [...]

Un-Crabcakes and Southwestern Corn Pudding

This was a Southern themed dinner, albeit from different sides of the south. Representing the Bayou, we have Vegan Dad’s Crispy Cajun Crabcakes Mine looked nothing like his, but they tasted pretty darn good…I suppose I just don’t have his skill as far as beautiful food goes. Mine were also more yellow then red, which [...]

Simple Crusty Bread and Straw Mushroom Pasta

Hey I’m getting the hang of this baking thing! I’ll be honest…the entire purpose behind making this was that I’m having a HORRIBLE week, and needed to punch something..err…knead, I meant knead. I found this recipe at the New York Times Website, and they weren’t kidding when they call it SIMPLE crusty bread. This has [...]

Tempeh Reuben

Since I’m back on 3-11s 4 days a week, I’ve been making myself lunch and eating a conglomeration of fruit and leftovers for dinner while at work. I’m really unhappy with it, but there isn’t much choice, so today, I’m sharing some lunch: I made the tempeh reuben from VwaV with a couple minor changes. [...]

AppleSauce Oat-Bran Muffins

Yet another muffin of the week…this one being the Apple Sauce Oat Bran muffins from V’con. I used Organic Apple-Raspberry sauce instead of plain old Apple, and for the suggested dried fruit, I decided to venture a bit out of the box and chop up some dates. GREAT IDEA. The dates were sweet and delicious, [...]

Honey Ginger Tofu

This was a recipe from Rachael Ray’s $40 A Day cookbook, and it just didn’t work. It’s entirely possible that this was my fault. I replaced the chicken with tofu, and didn’t squeeze it out beforehand, so it didn’t crisp up as much as I wanted it to. I also replaced the cornstarch with arrowroot [...]

Kimchee, Potato-Edamame Samosas with Coconut Mint Chutney, and Lo Mein

I’d been wanting to try out the Quick Kimchee from Vegetarian Planet for awhile now, and I finally got around to it this week. Granted, it’s been awhile since I’ve had real kimchee, but I’m pretty sure this tasted nothing like the real thing. Or looked anything like the real thing… This actually reminded me [...]
