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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

More Adventures from Appetite for Reduction

A bounty of canned beans found its way into my pantry this week, and since they all came in so fast, I apparently felt I had to get them into food just as fast.  I pulled out Appetite for Reduction again to see what it had to offer and pulled out a few recipes that [...]

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 [...]

Rainbow Chard Pasta, Grilled Foccacia and Currry Tofu with White Asparagus

Does it ever happen that you think you’re making a surprising well-balanced meal and then you look at the colors on the plate and feel that something’s gone horribly wrong?  I was thinking grain, protein, vegetable, which was how I created a grilled dinner that included foccacia made from a bagged pizza dough mix, a [...]

Food Round-up

The largest meal I make every week is for Sabbath dinner on Friday nights, and generally I don’t share it here since I’m not taking pictures after sundown on Friday night.  Much of the meal was not out yet, but I did snap a couple pictures of appetizers this past week, so you can check [...]

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 [...]
