Latin-Baked Tofu Tacos and Raddish Chipatis

This is where the “diet” started a bit…with some of the latin-baked tofu from Viva Vegan, which wasn’t actually baked, since I was short on time and cooked it up in a pan with a bit of non-stick spray instead and that was served up on some corn  tortillas with a handful of baby spinach, [...]

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 [...]

Runzas and Pad Thai (Again)

A couple weeks ago I’d never heard of a runza.  It’s too bad really, because MAN are these things good.  I got the recipe off the PPK blog where basically everything involved sauerkraut lately, and instead of seitan, used the chick’n strips I got with my coupons from Lightlife.  I gave the chick’n a quick [...]

Playing on the PPK and Gifts from Lightlife!

I forget to check out the PPK blog from for long stretches at a time…I’m not sure why, because whenever I get over there I seem to want to make every single recipe I’ve missed right away…and then I manage to completely forget about its amazingness for another three months.  Oh well….it’s nice to have [...]

Greek Baked Ziti

Every so often I have to go back to my girl Rachael Ray, and see what she’s cooking up in the kitchen.  I was craving some pasta last night, and when I think happy, tummy-warming pasta casseroles, I often think about my girl Rachael, and I headed over to her website to see what she’d [...]

Adventures in Appetite for Reduction

I’ve been hearing all these great things about the Arabian Lentil and Rice Soup from Appetite for Reduction.   I also thought it would go really well with the sweet potato drop biscuits from the same book.  I replaced the lentils in the soup with fava beans (because I just can’t bring myself to want anything [...]

More Tester Recipes, Breakfast and Barbeque. All the Basic Food Groups

This is just a quick round-up of some of things I’ve been cooking lately.  First off a couple more tester for Diet, Dessert and Dogs making an appearance.  First off is a frittata with zucchini and chard, looking incredibly bright in my afternoon lit apartment .    If you didn’t get it from the blush color, [...]

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! [...]

Asparagus Oatmeal and Lemoney Potatoes

Just thought I’d post a couple cookbook recipes I ate this week and snapped quick pictures of… The first is an asparagus-oatmeal “soup” from The Passionate Vegetarian it was interesting and filling, but I’m not sure it’s something I’d do again.  I’m not a huge oatmeal person to begin with, and savory renditions of it [...]
