Barney Colored Brussels

Ever since I discovered how good oven-baked Brussels are, that’s the only way I’d been making them, and so I decided it might be time to try them out on the stove-top again.  I ended up with a serious green and purple color scheme going on here, which is why I’m calling them “Barney Colored [...]

LOTS of FOOD PORN

If that title doesn’t draw you in….I really don’t know what will.  I have been eating recently, although a lot of things are repeats I’ve made before or too simple to bother photographing (do you really need to see my umpteenth salad again?  Probably not…) but whenever I make a good looking plate I do [...]

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 [...]

Pineapple Collards over Polenta Stuffing and Brussel Hash

More adventures from the wild world of Appetite for Reduction…I’m moving on to other things soon, I swear.  As far as the collards go, these were pretty good and they’re a nice change from my standard collards recipe so I’m sure I’ll come back to it at some point, although a bit of spice would’ve [...]

Thai Pineapple Fried Rice

When faced with leftover white rice, there really is only one thing to do….make it into fried rice!  And in this case thai-style fried rice, since I finally have a thai basil plant that’s doing well and there was an open can of crushed pineapple in the fridge.  It isn’t very traditional, since I don’t [...]

Asian Bok Choy Pizza

So when the idea for bok choy pizza struck me the other day, I figured the first thing I’d do was google and see if anyone else had done it and had a good looking combination.  I was pretty excited when a search brought up my site first until I realized that I, of course, [...]

The SOS Kitchen Challenge

So when I saw this over at Diet, Dessert and Dogs, I knew that it was something I had to do.  After all, I can never ignore a challenge, and the Iron-Chef Fan in me loves the idea of having a specific ingredient I need to invent for…although I was kind of concerned, because beets [...]

Tempura Fried Seitan and Maple Baked Carrots

So you know when you start out intending to do one thing, and you run into one issue, followed by another…and end up with something completely different from what you had intended, but probably better anyway?  That’s basically what happened here, with what was supposed to be beer battered Seitan (think the same consistency as [...]

Pineapple Fried Rice

Thursday night we ordered out for Chinese, although I’d really wanted Thai.  While there’s a great Thai place nearby that does take out, they don’t deliver, and the way I was feeling, I wasn’t getting out of bed to go pick up my food anywhere, they were bring it to me.  As a consolation prize, [...]

Sphagetti Squash Mexican Fiesta with Avocado Salsa Fresca

…or something like that. There’s not a whole lot I can say about this….It was a a V’con recipe…I didn’t like it. Okay, that’s not totally true…I loved the fruit salsa component…the whole Mexican bean stuff underneath was nasty….or at least that’s my opinion on the matter. Selah.
