Potato-spinach Knishes, VwaV Pad Thai, Hoisen Tofu Lettuce Wraps, and Red Velvet Mole

So I’m finally back from vacation, things are starting to settle back into a rhythm (just starting, I’ve got a ways to go yet) and I figured it’s time I write a bit about the last couple things I made before leaving for the West Coast, as well as the first couple meals I made [...]

Italian Vegetable Soup and Maple Mustard Baked Veggies

I made a soup that was in the grocery circular…and it was ok, but nothing special.  Here: Tomato Sauce, broth and lots of veggies was the name of the game…it would’ve been better with some fresh breadsticks or something to dip.  It’s also getting  a bit warm for soup, so maybe that’s why I was [...]

Maple-Mustard Glazed Potatoes and String Beans

VwaV…you went off, and you did it again, these are AMAZING. As usual I went ahead and jazzed things up a bit by mincing a hot pepper and adding it to the mix, but the sauce was all Isa. I could’ve eaten the entire casserole dish worth of this by myself, but sadly, I had [...]

A side

Last night’s dinner was a conglomeration of leftovers and such, but I did make one very simple, yet incredibly delicious side. Dump a bunch of baby carrots into a pot, drizzle generously with maple syrup (The real kind, from VERMONT…if yours is named after or is in the shape of someones Aunt or Madame, throw [...]
