Some Fridge Clearing, Cheribundi and a Hike

I’m totally enjoying all this Spring Sun…and not so enjoying the spring rain, but it’ll pass, I hope.  In honor of all the great weather, we hiked up a local “mountain” the other day and I took a couple pictures to share.  The first is the view from a little more then half way up [...]

Shiso/Edamame Salad and a Creme Brulee Giveaway!!!

It’s finally time for that review and giveaway that I’ve been teasing…but I’m going to make you wait just a bit longer while I talk a bit about this salad I put together last night.  The local farmer’s market had it’s opening day this weekend, and of course I had to make it out there [...]

Italian Vegetable Soup and Maple Mustard Baked Veggies

I made a soup that was in the grocery circular…and it was ok, but nothing special.  Here: Tomato Sauce, broth and lots of veggies was the name of the game…it would’ve been better with some fresh breadsticks or something to dip.  It’s also getting  a bit warm for soup, so maybe that’s why I was [...]

The SOS Kitchen Challenge

So when I saw this over at Diet, Dessert and Dogs, I knew that it was something I had to do.  After all, I can never ignore a challenge, and the Iron-Chef Fan in me loves the idea of having a specific ingredient I need to invent for…although I was kind of concerned, because beets [...]

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 [...]

Curry Tofu and Mushroom Stoup and Toori

This “stoup” make actually be my favorite Rachael Ray recipe that I’ve made…but I shouldn’t say that, because I seem to remember really enjoying some at some point.  Instead we’ll just say that it’s my favorite for this week. I did make a few changes as well, so who knows, perhaps the original isn’t even [...]

Random Eatings

I was in the mood for some good ole sausage and peppers the other day, and went back to a classic Vegan Dad Recipe for sausages.  I replaced the Pinto Beans with Cannolini, and basically threw in half my spice rack, but other then that I stuck with the original.  While the sausages were steaming [...]

Hash with Green Dressing

If you’ve been with me for a long time, you may have recalled my mentioning something called Green Dressing, which is a secret recipe I wasn’t given permission to share.  Well I made it again this week, and I’m feeling awful generous, so here’s your chance to make the best stuff on earth!  (May be [...]

How to go Vegan (or Vegetarian)and be Healthy

So this is a post that I promised a friend a while back, and have had trouble getting around to, even though I think it’s a great idea  It just seemed to me like it would take so much darn EFFORT.  But it’s important, so I’m going to give it my best shot. Whenever someone [...]

This is why I don’t cook out of Vegetarian Planet…the Post.

Vegetarian Planet is a great looking cookbook with a lot of great looking recipes…that’s why I bought it way back when.  However, the more recipes I’ve made from it, the more I’ve discovered that on the whole they are bland and unimaginative, and a lot just plain don’t work the way they’re supposed to….case in [...]
