Potato – Broccoli Soup and Pasta Frittata

It cooled down for most of last week, and with that dip in temperature,  I was craving soup again.  I decided to pull out V’con again, since its been sitting on the shelf for awhile, and see if there were any new soups I hadn’t made yet and had all the ingredients for.  I was [...]

Scones and Potatoes

I did a breakfast for dinner sort of thing the other day, with scones and maple-baked potatoes and carrots.  The scones are actually the chive spelt biscuits from Vegan Brunch, except that I replaced the spelt flour with standard white, adding about a cup to create a dough instead of a batter, and cut them [...]

The post-computer disaster food round-up

First I went to Pittsburgh for a few days where I wasn’t cooking, so there was no food.  Then my computer started doing wacky things…bad wacky.  It got worse and worse until it hit rock-bottom, became completely useless, and I had to wipe everything out and reinstall the operating system.  So that’s my story and [...]

Potato, Corn and Avocado Chaat

I’m convinced that everyone on this planet has a shopping problem.  A lot of girls have a shoe problem  (I know some guys that have a shoe problem too).  Or a purse problem.  Many of my favorite people (including myself, I admit it) have a book problem.  But my biggest weakness?  Ingredients.  Whenever I’m out [...]

Breaded Veggie “Casserole” and Chorizo con Papas

Sauteing things on the stove top is definitely the quickest way to cook, and lately I’ve been doing a lot of that, but the other night I was in the mood to oven bake SOMETHING, and came up with this recipe on the fly.  I was actually thinking loosely of the chickpea-broccoli casserole from VWAV, [...]

More Matzoh Meals

I am SO sick of Passover food…you can put a big bowl of pasta in front of me anytime now and I’d be the happiest person on earth, but I’ve still got about 36 hours to go, sigh.  That said, I’ve got several Passover friendly recipes that I’ve made this week and have been pretty [...]

Hash with Green Dressing

If you’ve been with me for a long time, you may have recalled my mentioning something called Green Dressing, which is a secret recipe I wasn’t given permission to share.  Well I made it again this week, and I’m feeling awful generous, so here’s your chance to make the best stuff on earth!  (May be [...]

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 [...]

Leftover veggie quiche with potato crust

This was actually something I made on the spur of the moment with what little was left in the fridge before shopping.  Unfortunately I don’t remember exactly what that WAS because this was over a week ago now, but I know there’s carrots, spinach and bell pepper in there at any rate…that might even be [...]

Roasted Pepper/Tomato Soup and Herby Cubed Potatoes

One dish that’s always a classic, is oven roasted potatoes, prepped with some dried herbs (in this case I think I went with parsley, rosemary, shallot-pepper, and garlic salt) tossed in olive oil, and baked for 40 minutes at 420F.  I pull these out and toss once in the middle, but other than that, they [...]
