Barney Colored Brussels

Ever since I discovered how good oven-baked Brussels are, that’s the only way I’d been making them, and so I decided it might be time to try them out on the stove-top again.  I ended up with a serious green and purple color scheme going on here, which is why I’m calling them “Barney Colored [...]

Fennel Zuccini Soup

I’m fairly certain this was my first time using a recipe from Bon Appetit….and it went well.  I’m not sure how they obtained the color and texture in their picture…perhaps they peeled their zucchini, although I’m not sure why you would do that…all the flavor a zucchini has is in the skin.  Mine was also [...]

Oven Baked Tofu with Peppers and Onions

There aren’t many flavor combinations I like better than peppers and onions…while I may not eat sausage, I’ll readily admit to purchasing some tofurkey beer brats every summer for just that reason…grilled up and then buried under a mound of the sauteed veggies, which I just can’t get enough of.  I’ve done the combo with [...]

Curry Laksa

So I’m still working my way through Appetite for Reduction, which is doing well for me..I’ve had lots of yummy food, and the pants I bought a little too small a couple weeks ago now fit rather nicely.  I’ve also been upping my workouts a bit…running farther and faster, not letting my mind tell me [...]

Blackened Tofu and Kale over Saffron Rice

I’ve tried blackened tofu before, but found it rather dry and bland…so I’d thought perhaps you need to toast the spices first or something along those lines…turns out I was just using the wrong recipe.  I gave the blackened tofu from Appetite for Reduction last week, and was amazed at just how flavorful and delicious [...]

Salads out of Appetite for Reduction

If I knew salads could taste this good, I probably would’ve been on a “diet” for the last 3 years.  The everyday quinoa salad (which I think might be the first recipe in Appetite for Reduction) was VERY good, and super filling, although I’m not sure I’d want to eat it EVERY DAY, the amount [...]

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! [...]

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 [...]

Pan-fried Kale and Brown Rice Pilaf

I can’t be the only person who sometimes gets cravings for that Near East brand rice pilaf mix…it’s definitely white rice, full of sodium…and with that little packet of orzo noodles and “spice mix” so darn…cravable.  This time around, instead of giving in to the powers of the box, I decided to make my own, [...]

Vietnamese Spring Rolls…quick and easy

Nothing like some quick Vietnamese spring rolls with sauce out of a jar for an easy (and healthy, depending on what’s in your sauce) dinner.  Filling too, since I have a habit of really stuffing the heck out of these things.  These particular rolls were filled with some spinach rice noodles, raw red bell pepper, [...]
