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 [...]

Carbs, Carbs and more Carbs

It is interesting that I made lots of fun-looking salads and such this week….but all I remembered to take pictures of were carbs.  Must be my mindset as we count down to Passover…the things I’m really holding on to for prosperity are full of flour. First off, with a vegetable I don’t buy often, was [...]

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 [...]

Ginger Beef and a Sweepstakes Winner!

Since I had (and still have) all that “beef” seitan from Cinco De Mayo, I figured it would be a good time to try a classic dish like ginger “beef” that I wouldn’t normally make, and it did come out pretty well.  I used this ginger beef recipe replacing the beef with thinly sliced squares [...]

Curry Tofu and Mushroom Stoup and Toori

This “stoup” make actually be my favorite Rachael Ray recipe that I’ve made…but I shouldn’t say that, because I seem to remember really enjoying some at some point.  Instead we’ll just say that it’s my favorite for this week. I did make a few changes as well, so who knows, perhaps the original isn’t even [...]

BLT Pasta and Veggie Pot Pie

I’ve been watching a lot of Food Network lately, and apparently this is where it gets me….Veggie-versions of Rachael Ray and Chef Anne Burrell recipes.  The BLT pasta recipe was actually veggie to begin with, which I find pretty ridiculous, because frankly I would’ve put bacon in it if it was something I ate, and [...]

Warm Butternut Squash over Spinach Salad

Who says a salad can’t be warm and satisfying?  Me.  All the time…except right now, because this one totally was, and I’d make it on any cold blustery winter night.  Or a cold lunchtime… I started out by roasting half an acorn squash in the oven.  Stick a pat of Earth Balance in the middle [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Mystery Bag Part 2

I’m a big proponent of simplicity, and while I thought of combining this with blocks of cheese, or tofu, or adding lots of fancy spices, in the end I simply couldn’t do it, and I wouldn’t add a thing to the final product.  These tomatoes all came from the garden bag, although I can’t remember [...]
