Fried Rice style Couscous

We all crave Chinese food sometimes (and if you say those little cardboard cartons full of grease and carbs don’t call out to you on occasion, you are either a stronger person than me….or lying.  So there.  That craving hit the other night, but I was of the belief that I could satisfy it without [...]

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 [...]

Random Eatings

I was in the mood for some good ole sausage and peppers the other day, and went back to a classic Vegan Dad Recipe for sausages.  I replaced the Pinto Beans with Cannolini, and basically threw in half my spice rack, but other then that I stuck with the original.  While the sausages were steaming [...]

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 [...]

A Little of Everything

So I keep meaning to get back to posting daily…and it just isn’t happening.  I still love cooking and taking pictures of the food I make, it’s just the actual posting that I’m getting bad at.  I will fix it though…I PROMISE.  Don’t lose hope.  A lot of the food I’ve been making lately is [...]

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 [...]

Edible Stuff

So I’ve got the flu…or its nasty older brother.  I’ve barely been mobile for the last week, although I feel better in the evenings then I do during the day, so I’ve been attempting to go out and get things done then…which is probably part of why I feel so dead when I get up [...]

Collards and Cornbread

I’ve done collards before…many times actually, but I feel like they’re always a bit different, and my biggest complaint is that they usually come out a little too sweet for me.  I’m not huge on cloyingly sweet foods, and it’s hard for me to eat an entire bowl/plate of something that tastes like dessert, no [...]

Tempeh and Tomato Relish on Bread

Making a sandwich for dinner can often feel like the easy way out, but then again, some sandwiches are AWESOME and you really wouldn’t want anything else for your evening meal.  This ranks up there with the AWESOME sandwiches.  It’s also got plenty of protein with the tempeh, so you won’t walk away feeling unfulfilled. [...]

Pasta Cici, Brussels and Onions…and oh yeah, FRIED PICKLES

I had a good friend over for dinner the other night, and he made his specialty, Pasta Cici.  Or as I refer to it, pasta with chickpeas and fennel.  It’s only fennel seeds, but when you get a bite of the stuff, you certainly know it’s there.  Not that that’s a bad thing…I love fennel, [...]
