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 Adventures from Appetite for Reduction

A bounty of canned beans found its way into my pantry this week, and since they all came in so fast, I apparently felt I had to get them into food just as fast.  I pulled out Appetite for Reduction again to see what it had to offer and pulled out a few recipes that [...]

Oven Baked Tofu with Peppers and Onions

There aren’t many flavor combinations I like better than peppers and onions…while I may not eat sausage, I’ll readily admit to purchasing some tofurkey beer brats every summer for just that reason…grilled up and then buried under a mound of the sauteed veggies, which I just can’t get enough of.  I’ve done the combo with [...]

Rainbow Chard Pasta, Grilled Foccacia and Currry Tofu with White Asparagus

Does it ever happen that you think you’re making a surprising well-balanced meal and then you look at the colors on the plate and feel that something’s gone horribly wrong?  I was thinking grain, protein, vegetable, which was how I created a grilled dinner that included foccacia made from a bagged pizza dough mix, a [...]

Curry Laksa

So I’m still working my way through Appetite for Reduction, which is doing well for me..I’ve had lots of yummy food, and the pants I bought a little too small a couple weeks ago now fit rather nicely.  I’ve also been upping my workouts a bit…running farther and faster, not letting my mind tell me [...]

Blackened Tofu and Kale over Saffron Rice

I’ve tried blackened tofu before, but found it rather dry and bland…so I’d thought perhaps you need to toast the spices first or something along those lines…turns out I was just using the wrong recipe.  I gave the blackened tofu from Appetite for Reduction last week, and was amazed at just how flavorful and delicious [...]

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, [...]

Runzas and Pad Thai (Again)

A couple weeks ago I’d never heard of a runza.  It’s too bad really, because MAN are these things good.  I got the recipe off the PPK blog where basically everything involved sauerkraut lately, and instead of seitan, used the chick’n strips I got with my coupons from Lightlife.  I gave the chick’n a quick [...]

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, [...]

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!
