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 [...]

I eat food. The blog.

I was checking out the blogosphere last week to see what I could make with the ingredients in my fridge, and was delighted to discover the new recipe database over at I eat food.  Since it was a Thursday and I like lighter meals on my hot yoga nights, I was going for some veggie [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Wraps, Kasha Vernishkas, and Vietnamese Noodle Salad

In times like these, I’m really happy I own Appetite for Reduction, even though I know a few weeks ago I said I didn’t believe in diet food.  Oh well, what can you say, I’m wishy washy.   Just call me John Kerry.  (That said I like the guy, I’m still bummed he lost) I [...]

The Rabbinowitz Family Cookbook

These were all food made in one dinner early last week…and since then I’ve been eating a lot of salads…salads in bowls…salads in wraps…salads disassembled….this is what happens when I go clothes shopping, and don’t like what I see when trying on an article of clothing.  There is something of a diet going on right [...]

Potato Kasha Knishes

I saw a package of buckwheat at the Asian Market last week, and knew immediately that I wanted it…and what I would be making once I possesed said treat.  Every now and then the Eastern European Jew in me floats its way up to the surface, and this was no exception, because I was thinking [...]
