Vegetarian Hot Pot and Cosmo “Meatballs”

So my new obsession is the recipe sidebar option on google as of last week, where you can enter ingredients in the search bar (as I’ve been doing for years) and then select the ingredients you don’t want included on the side, the time you’re willing to spend cooking, and even the number of calories [...]

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 [...]

Tamarind BBQ Tempeh and Sweet Potatoes and Ginger Bok Choy and Soba

These were two nights of dinner, and we went 50/50 in terms of success.  Both meals were from Appetite for Reduction which I’m still playing with, and while it hasn’t had any abject failures yet, some things just taste more like diet food than others.  The Ginger Bok Choy Soba was simply lacking…there was nothing [...]

Asian Bok Choy Pizza

So when the idea for bok choy pizza struck me the other day, I figured the first thing I’d do was google and see if anyone else had done it and had a good looking combination.  I was pretty excited when a search brought up my site first until I realized that I, of course, [...]

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 [...]

I am SUCH a posting bum

I think part of the reason I haven’t posted is because I haven’t made anything horribly exciting.  The one night I did make a really nice meal for company, I didn’t take any pictures, so there’s no proof anyhow. I’d have to say the best thing I’ve made recently was the Sweet Chili Lime Tofu [...]

Seitan Lo Mein

Since I don’t use msg in my cooking (although I had a roommate at one point who did…she left a shaker of the stuff out on the counter at all times) the Chinese food I made never tastes exactly like takeout, but it gets pretty darn close.  I’ve done lo mein before (it’s a favorite [...]

Cucumber Salad and a Bok Choy Stirfry

Still MORE awesomeness from Michelle’s Garden…I went down and helped pick and weed the other day, and in return got a seriously generous bounty to take home with me. First off are the cucumbers from the garden, and when it comes to the cumber (yeah, I call them cumbers) I’m of the belief that simple [...]

Garden Challenge Bag 2, Part 1

If you’ve been with me for a bit, you will remember the first garden challenge when Michelle gave me a bag of produce from her bounteous garden, and lo and behold, it’s happened again!!!  This time I’m making a number of different things with the produce, so there will be another entry forthcoming.  Last night [...]

Garden Challenge

So this week, something pretty awesome happened.  Michelle gave me a VERY exciting bag of fresh veggies from her garden, and the challenge was to make a meal with them that was easily accessible to all eaters (veggies and omnis alike) and delicious (duh).  I decided to make one dish with the head of cabbage [...]
