Fennel Zuccini Soup

I’m fairly certain this was my first time using a recipe from Bon Appetit….and it went well.  I’m not sure how they obtained the color and texture in their picture…perhaps they peeled their zucchini, although I’m not sure why you would do that…all the flavor a zucchini has is in the skin.  Mine was also [...]

I eat food. The blog.

I was checking out the blogosphere last week to see what I could make with the ingredients in my fridge, and was delighted to discover the new recipe database over at I eat food.  Since it was a Thursday and I like lighter meals on my hot yoga nights, I was going for some veggie [...]

Oven Baked Tofu with Peppers and Onions

There aren’t many flavor combinations I like better than peppers and onions…while I may not eat sausage, I’ll readily admit to purchasing some tofurkey beer brats every summer for just that reason…grilled up and then buried under a mound of the sauteed veggies, which I just can’t get enough of.  I’ve done the combo with [...]

Vegan Passover Kugel

I’m already very much over this whole Passover thing—although I must admit my diet is much more varied then back in the days when I had to survive Passover at a University Cafeteria….8 days of salad and nothing but salad got REAL old.  I was at my parents for the first couple nights and brought [...]

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 [...]

Sweet Potato Asparagus Tart with Asparagus Pesto

It’s been awhile since I entered the SOS (Sweet or Savory) challenge over at Diet, Dessert, and Dogs, but when I saw this month’s ingredient, I couldn’t resist.  Asparagus is just plain awesome, and I knew the hardest part would be doing something different and creative with it, because I’ve done lots of fancy things [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Lots of Beans and some Cheese Sauce covered Potatoes

Since it’s winter, I’m pretty sure that the only thing I’m allowed to make any more is stew….in some variety.  Even if it’s not exactly meant to be a stew, that seems to be what everything ends up as lately, and with all the cold and snow, I can’t say I’m complaining…although we got something [...]

Mojo Seitan and Enchiladas

Mmmm enchiladas, nuff said.  As far as food goes, I’d have to say I grew up in a fusion household.  I don’t think it was intentional, but when I think back on it, my mother’s top specialties were (are) falafel (Middle Eastern), Kugel (straight up Ashkenazic Jew food), Stir Fry (Asian) and enchiladas(Mexican-ish).  Lasagna made [...]
