Mushroom Spaghetti and Two more Tester Recipes

I’d been wanting to try the recipe for Mushroom Fettuccine in Appetite for Reduction for awhile, and even though I didn’t have the mushroom soup or mushrooms called for, I made due with what I DID have, and this came out SOOOO good, possibly my favorite pasta dish ever.  (And I realize I say that [...]

Jerk Tofu and Asparagus with Sticky Rice and Peas…or what Jamaican me for Dinner?

So get your groan about the title out of the way now…I just couldn’t resist the pun.  Since it’s still snowing (seemingly without pause for the last month now) I’ve run out of interest in slow cooker recipes and stews and have decided that if I cook only things inspired by warm climates, perhaps it [...]

Lots of Beans and some Cheese Sauce covered Potatoes

Since it’s winter, I’m pretty sure that the only thing I’m allowed to make any more is stew….in some variety.  Even if it’s not exactly meant to be a stew, that seems to be what everything ends up as lately, and with all the cold and snow, I can’t say I’m complaining…although we got something [...]

Peruvian Lima Bean and Cherry Tomato Salad and Creamy Corn Empanadas

This week it was back to Mexican food….Viva Vegan more specifically.  The first recipe was the lima bean, corn and tomato salad from the book….which was ok.  Maybe this is more exciting with the called-for cilantro, I’m not sure since I decided to leave the green out, although I added a healthy dosing of coriander [...]

Pineapple Collards over Polenta Stuffing and Brussel Hash

More adventures from the wild world of Appetite for Reduction…I’m moving on to other things soon, I swear.  As far as the collards go, these were pretty good and they’re a nice change from my standard collards recipe so I’m sure I’ll come back to it at some point, although a bit of spice would’ve [...]

More from the World of Appetite for Reduction

I’m still playing with my new toy these days…checking out the recipes it has to offer, and deciding which ones I’ll be making again and again…and which will probably never see the light of day a second time.  Among those that I tried this weekend, were the OMG Oven-baked onion rings, the Green Goddess dressing, [...]

Morning ‘Glory” Bread

I actually have this great mutual arrangement worked out.  A friend of mine has a subscription to Vegetarian Times, even though she isn’t a Vegetarian and doesn’t cook.  I’m not sure exactly how she ended up with a subscription, but I can’t complain, because every month her copy shows up, she quickly flips through it, [...]

Tamarind BBQ Tempeh and Sweet Potatoes and Ginger Bok Choy and Soba

These were two nights of dinner, and we went 50/50 in terms of success.  Both meals were from Appetite for Reduction which I’m still playing with, and while it hasn’t had any abject failures yet, some things just taste more like diet food than others.  The Ginger Bok Choy Soba was simply lacking…there was nothing [...]

Potato-spinach Knishes, VwaV Pad Thai, Hoisen Tofu Lettuce Wraps, and Red Velvet Mole

So I’m finally back from vacation, things are starting to settle back into a rhythm (just starting, I’ve got a ways to go yet) and I figured it’s time I write a bit about the last couple things I made before leaving for the West Coast, as well as the first couple meals I made [...]
