Curry Laksa

So I’m still working my way through Appetite for Reduction, which is doing well for me..I’ve had lots of yummy food, and the pants I bought a little too small a couple weeks ago now fit rather nicely.  I’ve also been upping my workouts a bit…running farther and faster, not letting my mind tell me [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Coming off an Injury with Fava Beans and Couscous

I realize its been awhile, but I’ve got a good excuse.  I got in a serious car accident about a week and a half ago now, and broke my collarbone, so after the eight and a half hours in the emergency room, I was all wound up in this intense sling/brace combination thing, and couldn’t [...]

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 [...]

Tofu and Soba in a Ginger-Lemongrass Broth and LEMON SQUARES!!!

I’m saving the best for last in this entry….so you can skip the entree and head right on down to desert if you like…I won’t hold it against you, since I’d probably do the same thing.  I am going to talk a bit about the savory course though, because I’ve got a recipe, and it [...]

Book Winners, Cookies, and an Upcoming Review

First off, receiving a copy of Etre the Cow, are Sarah and Vanessa…both of you are getting an email from me asking for your mailing address, so that I can get that off to the publisher ASAP and get your copy of the book out.  Thanks for commenting with your favorite books as well, they’ll [...]

New Year, New Luck, Black Eyed Peas

I’m not generally one for superstitions, but I do like making black-eyed peas on New Years, whether they actually give me good luck or not.  This one was a little different, because I tried to compile a recipe of all the things that I’m taking in as cold remedies, along with a couple more that [...]

Golden Beet Stirfry

This was the best thing I’ve had all week…although that isn’t saying much.  I still couldn’t finish a full bowl, but that had nothing to do with the dish, which I’m pretty sure was actually darn good, especially for something thrown together in about 15 minutes.  Rachael Ray would be proud of my speediness. I’ve [...]
