Latin-Baked Tofu Tacos and Raddish Chipatis

This is where the “diet” started a bit…with some of the latin-baked tofu from Viva Vegan, which wasn’t actually baked, since I was short on time and cooked it up in a pan with a bit of non-stick spray instead and that was served up on some corn  tortillas with a handful of baby spinach, [...]

Mushroom Olive Empanadas and Chimichurri Tofu

This post could also be named “….or why I’ll never be making anything but Mexican Food every again” because I finally caught up with the rest of the Vegan world and got my own copy of Viva la Vegan” by Terry Hope Romero.  I can’t wait to give the coconut flan a try, but I [...]

Cold Chickpea Salad and Mushroom Stuffed Eggplant

This is going to sound weird…but while I love falafel and Hummus (basically two different forms of chickpeas) I generally don’t like the things whole…if it actually looks like a chickpea…9 times out of 10, I’m not interested.  It was REALLY hot last week though, and I simply didn’t have the patience to make hummus, [...]

Hot Dog n’ Kraut Sandwiches and Falafel Pasta

I’ve been eating strange food lately…normal (or fairly normal) ingredients, but in pretty abnormal combos.  I’m not normally a dogs and kraut person at all, but I was having a craving earlier this week, and once I did it…I had to have it twice more in three days. To assemble my little piece de resistance [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Asian Broccoli and Tropical Spaghetti Squash

This broccoli isn’t the most photogenic dish on earth, but I make up for it with my “tropical” spaghetti squash rendition, which tastes good AND looks real pretty.  Among other things, it has all the colors going on, and it reminds me of summer.  (which is quickly fleeting these days) I’ll talk about the broccoli [...]

Vegan Squash Blossoms

There are certain foods I don’t see often, and whenever I do, I NEED to get them.  Squash blossoms fall under that heading, and when I saw them at the market this week, I HAD to get a couple dozen.  I keep seeing recipes for nice, clean sauteed blossoms and such, and I tell myself [...]

Brenner!

Breakfast for dinner is ALWAYS exciting…and somehow seems to be so much more delicious than breakfast in well…the morning.  I had some leftover tempeh bacon from the BLT, so I figured I should make some “sides” for it. The waffle maker hadn’t been out in awhile, so I went back to the banana waffles from [...]

Nachos and Taco Burgers

I hadn’t made veggie burgers in awhile, and to make up for that, I picked a few from Just The Food to try out this week, starting with the Ortega Burger.  Although I followed the recipe to a T, I’m calling this a taco burger only because the taco seasoning packet that I used wasn’t [...]
