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.  [...]

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 [...]

Reddish Thai Curry adapted from Vegan Dad

So I jumped on the VeganMofo bandwagon a bit late this year, I’m not sure how I became completely oblivious to its existence…especially considering I did it last year, but it totally skipped my mind until I saw the headline on some of my favorite reads, and went “WHERE HAVE I BEEN?????”.  Oooops.  Better late [...]

Squash Fries

It seems everyone’s been talking about squash fries, but I never got around to making them until now.  They ARE delicious (I went with butternut squash) although they never got terribly crispy, an issue I also have with sweet potato fries .  As a new way to cook squash they’re great, but anyone had luck [...]

Baked Buttercup Squash

The squash were gorgeous this week, and I just couldn’t help myself.  (plus they’re passover friendly!)  I got a pale green buttercup squash, and went with a simple oven bake. The oven was pre-heated to 400F while I scooped out the seeds, and set each half up with a teaspoon of margarine, and ample sprinklings [...]

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.

Cranberry Stuffing and Buttercup-Udon Stew

I’d been eying the kabocha-udon stew in Veganomicon for awhile, but held off, hoping I’d one day see a kabocha squash…no such luck. I wasn’t able to find the kombu either, which is supposed to flavor the stock. I finally decided the time had come regardless, and I would just improvise. I had all the [...]

Butternut Squash Soup and a Stir Fry

Since it’s been getting a bit chilly outside, I figured it was finally time to try out some butternut squash soup. I’ve never attempted a squash soup before, but I figured it couldn’t be too difficult…if only I’d gotten my proportions right. I’d picked out a pretty small butternut squash at the farmer’s market, since [...]

Buttercup Baked not Ziti

I’m done with my pumpkin experiments for the season, but I still wanted to make the “pumpkin baked ziti” recipe from V’con, since I’d been eying it long before pumpkin season even began. The recipe actually calls for canned pumpkin, which would make my life much easier, but I’m not quite ready to throw in [...]


This was a recipe I got from Vegetarian Planet, and altered a bit since I didn’t have parmesan or walnuts. The exciting part? I made it vegan!! I’d been craving spaghetti squash, something I haven’t had…pretty much since I started cooking for myself, since I’d never really thought to buy it. When I saw the [...]
