Machos and Gomen…there’s a joke there, but I’ll leave it to you…

Machos is the incredibly creative name I came up with for Nachos that are made with broken up matzoh instead of chips, which are pretty good…but perhaps not quite as awesome as their name.  I’m so glad it worked out to be Machos…adds a little manliness to the Passover holiday I think…which thankfully is almost [...]

Vegan Passover Kugel

I’m already very much over this whole Passover thing—although I must admit my diet is much more varied then back in the days when I had to survive Passover at a University Cafeteria….8 days of salad and nothing but salad got REAL old.  I was at my parents for the first couple nights and brought [...]

Carbs, Carbs and more Carbs

It is interesting that I made lots of fun-looking salads and such this week….but all I remembered to take pictures of were carbs.  Must be my mindset as we count down to Passover…the things I’m really holding on to for prosperity are full of flour. First off, with a vegetable I don’t buy often, was [...]

Sesame Orange Tempeh over Couscous

I’m still of the belief that if I combine couscous with Asian flavors, it is an Asian ingredient…as long as no one tells the Japanese or the Moroccans about it, I suppose I’m safe.  You may not want to tell the Chinese either, now that I think about it.  I was making a friend’s recipe [...]

Fried Rice Filled Crepes

This is what happens when I cook things and don’t post about them for awhile….I forget what was in them…and with all the leftovers gone, I can’t exactly go look.  This is a bit of a misnomer, since I used non-stick cooking spray instead of oil, and the rice isn’t actually “fried” but I’m still [...]

Sweet Potato Asparagus Tart with Asparagus Pesto

It’s been awhile since I entered the SOS (Sweet or Savory) challenge over at Diet, Dessert, and Dogs, but when I saw this month’s ingredient, I couldn’t resist.  Asparagus is just plain awesome, and I knew the hardest part would be doing something different and creative with it, because I’ve done lots of fancy things [...]

Eggplant Dengaku and Quinoaaaaaa

We’re coming into quinoa season, I can tell.  Not that quinoa isn’t widely available year round and pretty much impervious to weather changes, but my quinoa season happens soon…real soon.  It’s called Passover, and as an Ashkenazi Jew and Vegetarian, it’s pretty much the only thing resembling a grain or protein that I can eat.  [...]
