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 [...]

More Tester Recipes

I wish I had some original recipes to share with you today but no such luck….I can say I made the sopapillas(?) from Viva Vegan and they’re delicious, but I forgot to take a picture… What is pictured here, are a couple more tester recipes from the Diet, Dessert and Dogs e-book that’s coming soon! [...]

Tamarind BBQ Tempeh and Sweet Potatoes and Ginger Bok Choy and Soba

These were two nights of dinner, and we went 50/50 in terms of success.  Both meals were from Appetite for Reduction which I’m still playing with, and while it hasn’t had any abject failures yet, some things just taste more like diet food than others.  The Ginger Bok Choy Soba was simply lacking…there was nothing [...]

Mushroom Cutlets and first BBQ of the Year!!!

So first things first, we dragged the hibachi grill out of the hall closet this weekend and grilled up some burgers!!!  By the time we got it outside and tried to start things up it was already getting kind of windy and cold out, but that didn’t stop us…it had been sunny all day, and [...]

Things in which Cilantro Chutney are AWESOME

So one of my awesome Chanukah presents from one of my awesome friends was a Cilantro Chutney, which I’ve been using in practically everything I’ve made since.  The night I got it I wasn’t really in the mood to cook anything elaborate, so I did some sweet potato fries dipped in the chutney instead of [...]

Passover Friendly Food fit for Royalty

For 8 days, I can’t have ANY wheat products (bread, cereal, pasta, rice, couscous, wheat gluten, etc) dried beans and the products they make (soy, chickpeas, navy, kidney, lima, black, butter, etc) and no peanuts.  Basically, this is the anti-vegetarian holiday, and I generally hate what I eat for this week.  Not tonight…this was all [...]

Sweet Potato-Watercress Hash, Stir-Fried Turnip Greens, and Asian Marinated Tofu

I realize that the sweet potato hash recipe in VwaV is supposed to be a breakfast food, but I really don’t think I’d want it for breakfast. The sweet potatoes are very rich and savory, and watercress is simply not a breakfast vegetable as far as I’m concerned. Don’t get me wrong, this was REALLY [...]

Valentines Dinner

This was me and my boyfriend’s third V’Day together and we did the same thing we have the last couple years, which is cook a nice dinner together, for just the two of us. This was the first time our Valentines dinner was completely Vegan, although with all the coconut milk it was beyond decadent, [...]

Sweet Potato Shepards Pie

I was partially listening to Rachael Ray at some point last week, and saw that she was making a sweet potato Shepards Pie. It sounded like a great idea to me, and so later that night when I was at work and bored out of my mind, I put together a recipe for a Veggie [...]

Sweet Potato Muffins

There’s not much to say about these…they came from Vegetarian Planet, and they’re VERY yummy. Selah.
