Italian Vegetable Soup and Maple Mustard Baked Veggies

I made a soup that was in the grocery circular…and it was ok, but nothing special.  Here: Tomato Sauce, broth and lots of veggies was the name of the game…it would’ve been better with some fresh breadsticks or something to dip.  It’s also getting  a bit warm for soup, so maybe that’s why I was [...]

Tofu and Soba in a Ginger-Lemongrass Broth and LEMON SQUARES!!!

I’m saving the best for last in this entry….so you can skip the entree and head right on down to desert if you like…I won’t hold it against you, since I’d probably do the same thing.  I am going to talk a bit about the savory course though, because I’ve got a recipe, and it [...]

Mushroom Cutlets and first BBQ of the Year!!!

So first things first, we dragged the hibachi grill out of the hall closet this weekend and grilled up some burgers!!!  By the time we got it outside and tried to start things up it was already getting kind of windy and cold out, but that didn’t stop us…it had been sunny all day, and [...]

Breaded Veggie “Casserole” and Chorizo con Papas

Sauteing things on the stove top is definitely the quickest way to cook, and lately I’ve been doing a lot of that, but the other night I was in the mood to oven bake SOMETHING, and came up with this recipe on the fly.  I was actually thinking loosely of the chickpea-broccoli casserole from VWAV, [...]

Fried Rice style Couscous

We all crave Chinese food sometimes (and if you say those little cardboard cartons full of grease and carbs don’t call out to you on occasion, you are either a stronger person than me….or lying.  So there.  That craving hit the other night, but I was of the belief that I could satisfy it without [...]

The SOS Kitchen Challenge

So when I saw this over at Diet, Dessert and Dogs, I knew that it was something I had to do.  After all, I can never ignore a challenge, and the Iron-Chef Fan in me loves the idea of having a specific ingredient I need to invent for…although I was kind of concerned, because beets [...]

More Matzoh Meals

I am SO sick of Passover food…you can put a big bowl of pasta in front of me anytime now and I’d be the happiest person on earth, but I’ve still got about 36 hours to go, sigh.  That said, I’ve got several Passover friendly recipes that I’ve made this week and have been pretty [...]
