Whole Wheat Waffles with Red Wine and Mushroom Gravy

So I know I said I’d be better about posting…but then I went and got the flu or something like it, and became a bum.  I still feel pretty darn sick, but that’s why I’m sitting on the couch posting…I can’t do much of anything else successfully right now.  I HAVE been cooking though…something about [...]

Mushroom Bouillabaisse

I’m not generally an Emeril Lagasse fan, frankly he says “um” a lot which I find to be the MOST annoying trait in a tv personality, I know from seeing his bio once that he’s a pretty weak excuse for a family man, and the whole “BAM!” thing just rings fake to me.  But all [...]

Couscous with Tofu

I wasn’t in the mood to cook much (if at all…has it been hot and humid forever???) so my first thought was couscous.  You really only need to boil water for the couscous itself, and by the time you pour in the grain you can turn off the heat, so in terms of summer foods…it’s [...]

Korean Cucumber Salad and Quick Spicy Pasta

When I saw the size of the cucumbers at the farmer’s market yesterday, the first thing I thought of was the Korean Cucumber Salad that Renae over at I eat Food made this week.  The cucumbers at the market were so big I only used one for the recipe, and boy was I glad.  I [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Veggie Logs

This is my last recipe (at least for the time being) from Just the Food and it was a good one, although it didn’t photograph the best.  I’m not sure if it was the peanut butter or what, but these stayed together better than any TVP recipe I’ve made in the past, and I was [...]

Forbidden Rice and Spicy Wonton Soup

First off, I don’t remember what’s in the soup.  I dumped everything “Asian flavored” I had into the pot and let it simmer for half an hour.  Then there was soup.  I made some simple veggie wontons with shredded carrot, napa and mushrooms sauteed with a bit of five spice powder.  Overall it was pretty [...]

Peanut Tempeh and my Blogiversary

First things first, this is my one year Blogiversary!  In some ways I can’t believe its been a year, and in others it feels like I’ve been doing this forever.  I’m pretty excited to have made it here, and I’m hoping for more years of cooking, blogging, and sharing with all of you.  Sadly, there [...]

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 [...]
