Vegetarian Hot Pot and Cosmo “Meatballs”

So my new obsession is the recipe sidebar option on google as of last week, where you can enter ingredients in the search bar (as I’ve been doing for years) and then select the ingredients you don’t want included on the side, the time you’re willing to spend cooking, and even the number of calories [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Belgian Waffles!

One of my scores on black friday was a rotating belgian waffle maker that I got at Kohls, and while I had an old square waffle maker, when I saw this in the circular I just had to have it.  There’s nothing better than fresh fruit on a waffle, and while we had strawberries and [...]

Garden Challenge

So this week, something pretty awesome happened.  Michelle gave me a VERY exciting bag of fresh veggies from her garden, and the challenge was to make a meal with them that was easily accessible to all eaters (veggies and omnis alike) and delicious (duh).  I decided to make one dish with the head of cabbage [...]

Golden Rice Cakes with Sweet Potato-Ginger Sauce, Schezuan Bean Curd Soup and Smlove Pie

The sauce for the Golden Rice Cakes was probably the most beautiful thing I’ve ever made.  It was the color of perfectly ripe  cantelope, smooth as silk, and yet perfectly spiced.  I’m just a little proud.  The rice cakes themselves were pretty good too, although without the sauce I doubt they would have been anything [...]

Anise Flavored Bread and Celery Gratin

First off, who on earth cooks celery for an HOUR?  While I thought this was pretty good (others weren’t as keen) I still think attempting to cook celery for an hour is pretty ridiculous.  As it turns out, I didn’t get to keep it in that long anyway, because after about half an hour in [...]

Shakshukah

When I spent the semester in Israel, I had one of two things for breakfast every day…the first was Israeli salad…fresh chopped cucumber,tomato, and bell pepper with lemon juice,olive oil,salt,pepper,and zataar. The other thing was Shakshukah. Think scrambled eggs, but with more tomato and veggies then eggs…in this case they’re simply a thickening agent so [...]

Asian Crustless Quiche

This meal was doomed. It tasted really good, and was a great way to use up some leftovers on shopping night, but it was definitely doomed. I chopped up a bunch of leftover bok choy, along with a handful of mushrooms, and added to it milk, eggs, hot Asian chili paste, five spice powder, and [...]

Pumpkin Bread

The last serving of the Pumpkin dish from about a week and a half ago (that seems so much worse when I write it) was rolling around in the fridge, and today was going to be its last day, whether it was consumed or not…I’d already decided that. When I got up and opened the [...]
