The Rabbinowitz Family Cookbook

These were all food made in one dinner early last week…and since then I’ve been eating a lot of salads…salads in bowls…salads in wraps…salads disassembled….this is what happens when I go clothes shopping, and don’t like what I see when trying on an article of clothing.  There is something of a diet going on right [...]

Scalloped Pattypan Casserole

There are few things that I find more aggravating then to type and entire blog entry with photos/recipe and all..only to have wordpress log out and the entire thing vanish without a trace the second I hit submit.  That happened the first time I created this post, and I needed to blow off steam for [...]

Cucumber-Tomato Salad, Pot Roast Seitan, Cornbread, and Green Bean Pepper Salad

With the exception of the quick salad I whipped up, all of these recipes came from the Passionate Vegetarian, a cookbook that is seriously undervalued in my kitchen, considering how much it has to offer.  I wasn’t a huge fan of the green beans, which ended up tasting very “mustardy” but I did like the [...]

More from “Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker”

I think I’m done slow-cooking for a bit, but I just had to share the last couple recipes I made from this new cookbook.  One of them is called “Green Bean and White Bean Casserole” and is a lot like that commercial classic, THE Green Bean Casserole, except minus all the gross chemical filled stuff [...]

Diet, Dessert and Dogs…times 3

So one of my favorite Vegan Blog reads is over at Diet, Dessert n Dogs where pretty much EVERYTHING pictured looks absolutely mouth-watering, and makes me want to eat it NOW.  This week I decided to give a few of the recipes I’d been lusting after a try, and wasn’t disappointed, although one was a [...]

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 [...]

Cauliflower Pakoras and Onion Relish with Green Beans and Mushrooms

Cauliflower to me is such an enigma.  I always want to buy them (especially when they come in awesome colors like purple) but I never know what to do with it, and even when I find an appropriate recipe, nine times out of ten I’m seriously underwhelmed.  I don’t want to eat it plain, because [...]

Kung Pao Tofu

I’m not entirely sure why a cookbook is necessary to make a stirfry…and that’s what this was.  A GOOD stirfry, sure, but a  stirfry nonetheless.  The oven-baking method for the tofu was pretty good, but that’s the only part of the recipe I’d really save and go back to.  The portion pictured is over rice, [...]

Curried Avocado Soup, Cucumber salad and Asian Green Beans

These recipe all came from the Sundays at Moosewood Restaurant cookbook which I’m quickly falling in love with.  Most of the recipe are under ten ingredients (these three certainly were) and I have yet to make a clunker.  The only cold soup I really turn out often is gazpacho, and that depends heavily on a [...]

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 [...]
