Playing on the PPK and Gifts from Lightlife!

I forget to check out the PPK blog from for long stretches at a time…I’m not sure why, because whenever I get over there I seem to want to make every single recipe I’ve missed right away…and then I manage to completely forget about its amazingness for another three months.  Oh well….it’s nice to have [...]

Greek Baked Ziti

Every so often I have to go back to my girl Rachael Ray, and see what she’s cooking up in the kitchen.  I was craving some pasta last night, and when I think happy, tummy-warming pasta casseroles, I often think about my girl Rachael, and I headed over to her website to see what she’d [...]

Adventures in Appetite for Reduction

I’ve been hearing all these great things about the Arabian Lentil and Rice Soup from Appetite for Reduction.   I also thought it would go really well with the sweet potato drop biscuits from the same book.  I replaced the lentils in the soup with fava beans (because I just can’t bring myself to want anything [...]

More Tester Recipes, Breakfast and Barbeque. All the Basic Food Groups

This is just a quick round-up of some of things I’ve been cooking lately.  First off a couple more tester for Diet, Dessert and Dogs making an appearance.  First off is a frittata with zucchini and chard, looking incredibly bright in my afternoon lit apartment .    If you didn’t get it from the blush color, [...]

More Tester Recipes

I wish I had some original recipes to share with you today but no such luck….I can say I made the sopapillas(?) from Viva Vegan and they’re delicious, but I forgot to take a picture… What is pictured here, are a couple more tester recipes from the Diet, Dessert and Dogs e-book that’s coming soon! [...]

Asparagus Oatmeal and Lemoney Potatoes

Just thought I’d post a couple cookbook recipes I ate this week and snapped quick pictures of… The first is an asparagus-oatmeal “soup” from The Passionate Vegetarian it was interesting and filling, but I’m not sure it’s something I’d do again.  I’m not a huge oatmeal person to begin with, and savory renditions of it [...]

Cornbread Dressing?

I’m told something can only be called a stuffing if it’s inside of something else, so apparently a combination of bread and binders in a casserole dish is either a pudding or a dressing…I’m not entirely certain what the difference is there either, but we’ll go with it…and call this a dressing….up.  This is one [...]

The Passionate Vegetarian Returns

I decided to pull out a cookbook I hadn’t used in awhile (or if I’m honest, much at all) yesterday and see what I could scrounge up based on what was in the fridge. First off, I gave the ‘Spicy Eggplant with Buckwheat Noodles’ a shot, which sounded pretty good…but totally didn’t do it for [...]

Superbowl Snacks!!!!

Just wanted to share a picture of our GameDay Spread.  I just watched the game with a couple close friends, but we made sure we were totally entrenched in snacks….not to mention beer, but I didn’t bother taking a picture of that….. Oh and I’d picked the Packers on the day (Since my Pats bowed [...]

Ministrone-Chili

So I set out intending to make a minestrone…but  I didn’t really have any fresh vegetables with the exception of spinach and two mushrooms, and I apparently didn’t put enough liquid in….so this turned out closer to a chili…which isn’t bad…and probably put the universe back at equilibrium since the chili I made a couple [...]
