LOTS of FOOD PORN

If that title doesn’t draw you in….I really don’t know what will.  I have been eating recently, although a lot of things are repeats I’ve made before or too simple to bother photographing (do you really need to see my umpteenth salad again?  Probably not…) but whenever I make a good looking plate I do [...]

Skillet Baked Pasta and Veggies

I’ve done pasta frittata, I’ve done plain old pasta in sauce with veggies, but I don’t often do the oven-baked pasta “casserole” that my mother made often when I was a kid.  I didn’t want to fill this one with ricotta and cheese like those pasta casseroles of my childhood, but I did include the [...]

Potato Salad, Spaghetti Squash, Vanilla Carrots, Lingonberry-Turkey Sandwiches, Quick Kimchee, Sausage/Sundried Tomato Pasta and Steak and Cheese

So I’m fairly certain this is a my longest title ever, and it’s all because I’ve simply been too busy to blog.  Life has been piling up and there are a lot of exciting things going on, and while I’ve still been cooking and eating, I just haven’t been able to post on a daily [...]

The Book: etre the Cow The Author: Sean Kennif The Premise: Ever feel like a farm animal? You know, living a life trapped behind a fence, surrounded by others identical to you, and all headed for an inescapable doom, although no one seems to know exactly what it is or when it will come? Ok, [...]

Not Israeli-Israeli Couscous and a FRESH Ragu

I’ve made a lot of couscous in my time, and eaten a lot too, but ironically the only kind I don’t like is “Israeli” Couscous, and by that I mean the kind with the huge chewy pearls that remind me of a cross between tapioca and millet…not really a plan.  Then again, as I see [...]

Garlicky Kale with Tahini Sauce and Tempeh Potato Hash

So the other night I decided to try out a VWAV recipe that I’d been eying…the garlicky kale and tahini sauce.  I am absolutely IN LOVE with this tahini sauce, and totally intend to make use of it with my next batch of falafel, but I just wasn’t as excited about the kale.  My kale [...]

A Little of Everything

So I keep meaning to get back to posting daily…and it just isn’t happening.  I still love cooking and taking pictures of the food I make, it’s just the actual posting that I’m getting bad at.  I will fix it though…I PROMISE.  Don’t lose hope.  A lot of the food I’ve been making lately is [...]

Pasta Cici, Brussels and Onions…and oh yeah, FRIED PICKLES

I had a good friend over for dinner the other night, and he made his specialty, Pasta Cici.  Or as I refer to it, pasta with chickpeas and fennel.  It’s only fennel seeds, but when you get a bite of the stuff, you certainly know it’s there.  Not that that’s a bad thing…I love fennel, [...]

What’s been coming out of my Kitchen

What with the holidays approaching and all sorts of other stresses I just haven’t had time to post.  I have been cooking, but what happens is that I make things, forget about them, and once I finally upload the pictures, I vaguely remember the flavors, but have no clue what actually went into them.  So [...]
