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 [...]

Cornbread Dressing?

I’m told something can only be called a stuffing if it’s inside of something else, so apparently a combination of bread and binders in a casserole dish is either a pudding or a dressing…I’m not entirely certain what the difference is there either, but we’ll go with it…and call this a dressing….up.  This is one [...]

The Passionate Vegetarian Returns

I decided to pull out a cookbook I hadn’t used in awhile (or if I’m honest, much at all) yesterday and see what I could scrounge up based on what was in the fridge. First off, I gave the ‘Spicy Eggplant with Buckwheat Noodles’ a shot, which sounded pretty good…but totally didn’t do it for [...]

Superbowl Snacks!!!!

Just wanted to share a picture of our GameDay Spread.  I just watched the game with a couple close friends, but we made sure we were totally entrenched in snacks….not to mention beer, but I didn’t bother taking a picture of that….. Oh and I’d picked the Packers on the day (Since my Pats bowed [...]

Ministrone-Chili

So I set out intending to make a minestrone…but  I didn’t really have any fresh vegetables with the exception of spinach and two mushrooms, and I apparently didn’t put enough liquid in….so this turned out closer to a chili…which isn’t bad…and probably put the universe back at equilibrium since the chili I made a couple [...]

Pan-fried Kale and Brown Rice Pilaf

I can’t be the only person who sometimes gets cravings for that Near East brand rice pilaf mix…it’s definitely white rice, full of sodium…and with that little packet of orzo noodles and “spice mix” so darn…cravable.  This time around, instead of giving in to the powers of the box, I decided to make my own, [...]

Vietnamese Spring Rolls…quick and easy

Nothing like some quick Vietnamese spring rolls with sauce out of a jar for an easy (and healthy, depending on what’s in your sauce) dinner.  Filling too, since I have a habit of really stuffing the heck out of these things.  These particular rolls were filled with some spinach rice noodles, raw red bell pepper, [...]

Mushroom Spaghetti and Two more Tester Recipes

I’d been wanting to try the recipe for Mushroom Fettuccine in Appetite for Reduction for awhile, and even though I didn’t have the mushroom soup or mushrooms called for, I made due with what I DID have, and this came out SOOOO good, possibly my favorite pasta dish ever.  (And I realize I say that [...]

Jerk Tofu and Asparagus with Sticky Rice and Peas…or what Jamaican me for Dinner?

So get your groan about the title out of the way now…I just couldn’t resist the pun.  Since it’s still snowing (seemingly without pause for the last month now) I’ve run out of interest in slow cooker recipes and stews and have decided that if I cook only things inspired by warm climates, perhaps it [...]
