Tofu Calabrese

This is another idea I got from my girl Rachael Ray….she was making Chicken Calabrese on her show last week and it looked so darn good (minus the chicken and bacon) that I had to give it a try with tofu…and so I did.  I thought this was ok, and since it was one of [...]

Savory Indian Sweet Potatoes and Chickpea Curry over Rice

These two things are pretty different and not really both necessary in a single meal, but I figured since I was making one I might as well do both and have leftovers…which is how it went down, and not to surprise, I loved the one I’d had before and was lukewarm about the other, although [...]

Mushroom and Onion “Pizza”

I’m thankful my roommate stole a slice of this on her way out the door the other night…it’s frightening enough that I ate the other 5/6 in a single sitting, considering it is a large pizza sized crust, but I simply couldn’t seem to stop myself, since it was so darn GOOD.  I got a [...]

Scalloped Pattypan Casserole

There are few things that I find more aggravating then to type and entire blog entry with photos/recipe and all..only to have wordpress log out and the entire thing vanish without a trace the second I hit submit.  That happened the first time I created this post, and I needed to blow off steam for [...]

Battered Tomato Salad and Baingan Bhartha

Everyone’s heard of fried green tomatoes, but large green tomatoes are hard to come by in these parts, and frankly whenever I pick up a large heirloom, I have an overwhelming desire to fry it.  What can I say?  They just seem to call out for the treatment.  This was a large yellow and orange [...]

Steamed Veggie Wontons

There’s this rumor going around that wontons are supposed to be fried, and I must admit I’ve fallen pray to it in the past…there is after all, something pretty satisfying about that crunch.  I had a totally out-of-the-box idea last week though, I looked at the wonton wrappers I’d picked up at the Asian Market, [...]

Have Some Junk Food will you?

It looks like I went to White Castle….rest assured, I would never do such a thing, but our meal the other night certainly had the look: I made the All-American Grillers from Just the Food, and set them up with some of my standard lemon-caper mayo and a side of fries.  These aren’t even the [...]

Cold Chickpea Salad and Mushroom Stuffed Eggplant

This is going to sound weird…but while I love falafel and Hummus (basically two different forms of chickpeas) I generally don’t like the things whole…if it actually looks like a chickpea…9 times out of 10, I’m not interested.  It was REALLY hot last week though, and I simply didn’t have the patience to make hummus, [...]

Lemon Basil Oven-Baked Tofu over Pasta

One of the things I like best about the Market I go to (along with the fact that it’s fully Vegetarian AND kosher, is the seasonal produce they bring in…and how it changes almost constantly.  The selection actually looks a lot like that at the farmer’s market and much of it comes from the same [...]
