Greek Baked Ziti

Every so often I have to go back to my girl Rachael Ray, and see what she’s cooking up in the kitchen.  I was craving some pasta last night, and when I think happy, tummy-warming pasta casseroles, I often think about my girl Rachael, and I headed over to her website to see what she’d [...]

More Tester Recipes, Breakfast and Barbeque. All the Basic Food Groups

This is just a quick round-up of some of things I’ve been cooking lately.  First off a couple more tester for Diet, Dessert and Dogs making an appearance.  First off is a frittata with zucchini and chard, looking incredibly bright in my afternoon lit apartment .    If you didn’t get it from the blush color, [...]

Baked Pasta, Cabbage Salad, and Mock Lamb (Seitan) Stew

Everyone’s gotta have a fall back…and mine is generally a baked pasta dish of some sort…I combine cooked noodles, whatever veggies are on hand, and a really quick version of Vegan White sauce…usually with some prepared red sauce or salsa as well…top with breadcrumbs, and oven-bake.  It’s a real cop-out in terms of cooking a [...]

Mojo Seitan and Enchiladas

Mmmm enchiladas, nuff said.  As far as food goes, I’d have to say I grew up in a fusion household.  I don’t think it was intentional, but when I think back on it, my mother’s top specialties were (are) falafel (Middle Eastern), Kugel (straight up Ashkenazic Jew food), Stir Fry (Asian) and enchiladas(Mexican-ish).  Lasagna made [...]

Potato-Turnip Green Soup and Green Thai Curry

I’m not entirely sure what makes potato-kale soup latina…it’s a dish I’ve done before in several varieties, and I don’t find it terribly innovative in a Vegan cookbook anymore, but it’s good nonetheless (especially with the days cooling down as they have been) and I did like the addition of some fried-up sausage on top.  [...]

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 [...]

Potato Salad, Spaghetti Squash, Vanilla Carrots, Lingonberry-Turkey Sandwiches, Quick Kimchee, Sausage/Sundried Tomato Pasta and Steak and Cheese

So I’m fairly certain this is a my longest title ever, and it’s all because I’ve simply been too busy to blog.  Life has been piling up and there are a lot of exciting things going on, and while I’ve still been cooking and eating, I just haven’t been able to post on a daily [...]

Cucumber-Tomato Salad, Pot Roast Seitan, Cornbread, and Green Bean Pepper Salad

With the exception of the quick salad I whipped up, all of these recipes came from the Passionate Vegetarian, a cookbook that is seriously undervalued in my kitchen, considering how much it has to offer.  I wasn’t a huge fan of the green beans, which ended up tasting very “mustardy” but I did like the [...]

Pasta, pasta, and more pasta.

There’s definitely been a trend lately….I’ve been making a lot of pasta.  First the breaded seitan made a repeat appearance as chicken parm: Next I decided to break into a jar of Thai Kitchen pad thai sauce that had been sitting in the pantry for what feels like forever.  So this is basically whatever veggies [...]

Chicken Fried Seitan and Corn on the Cob

There are a couple knife blocks in my kitchen, and while the Chefs, pairing knife, and bread knife get used a few times a day, there is entire row that I almost never touch, and those are the steak knives.  When you don’t eat steak, you simple don’t need to saw into anything most days, [...]
