Superbowl Snacks!!!!

Just wanted to share a picture of our GameDay Spread.  I just watched the game with a couple close friends, but we made sure we were totally entrenched in snacks….not to mention beer, but I didn’t bother taking a picture of that….. Oh and I’d picked the Packers on the day (Since my Pats bowed [...]

Mushroom Spaghetti and Two more Tester Recipes

I’d been wanting to try the recipe for Mushroom Fettuccine in Appetite for Reduction for awhile, and even though I didn’t have the mushroom soup or mushrooms called for, I made due with what I DID have, and this came out SOOOO good, possibly my favorite pasta dish ever.  (And I realize I say that [...]

Jerk Tofu and Asparagus with Sticky Rice and Peas…or what Jamaican me for Dinner?

So get your groan about the title out of the way now…I just couldn’t resist the pun.  Since it’s still snowing (seemingly without pause for the last month now) I’ve run out of interest in slow cooker recipes and stews and have decided that if I cook only things inspired by warm climates, perhaps it [...]

Potato-spinach Knishes, VwaV Pad Thai, Hoisen Tofu Lettuce Wraps, and Red Velvet Mole

So I’m finally back from vacation, things are starting to settle back into a rhythm (just starting, I’ve got a ways to go yet) and I figured it’s time I write a bit about the last couple things I made before leaving for the West Coast, as well as the first couple meals I made [...]

Tofu Banh Mi

If you’re anywhere near as Food Network obsessed as I am (and hopefully you aren’t because I’ve started having dreams about Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives, and that’s a problem) you probably caught an episode or two of the Great Food Truck Race this past summer.  My favorite truck for the duration of the show was [...]

Black Bean Soup and Orange Mojo Tofu

Guess What?  Viva La Vegan strikes again!  This time I gave the black bean soup and Orange Mojo Tofu a try and was absolutely in love with both.  I’ll admit I cheated and used canned beans for the soup, but other than that I followed all the directions, and was quite pleased with the result.  [...]

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 [...]

Tofu Calabrese

This is another idea I got from my girl Rachael Ray….she was making Chicken Calabrese on her show last week and it looked so darn good (minus the chicken and bacon) that I had to give it a try with tofu…and so I did.  I thought this was ok, and since it was one of [...]

Lemon Basil Oven-Baked Tofu over Pasta

One of the things I like best about the Market I go to (along with the fact that it’s fully Vegetarian AND kosher, is the seasonal produce they bring in…and how it changes almost constantly.  The selection actually looks a lot like that at the farmer’s market and much of it comes from the same [...]

Vegetable Millet

I wanted a grain that was a bit off the beaten-track the other day (unlike pasta and rice, which I see all the time) and unearthed about a cup of millet in my pantry.  I googled the liquid to millet ratio (it’s 2 to 1 in case you were wondering) and simply sauteed whatever veggies [...]
