Green Garlic Baked Ziti

If there is one dish that I always associate with comfort food, it’s baked ziti.  There’s just something so darn fulfilling about oven-baked pasta, I crave it constantly, and I’m always looking for good alternatives to the cheese laden version I got started on.  Enter this dish. Green garlic was the vegetable du jour at [...]

Tofu and Soba in a Ginger-Lemongrass Broth and LEMON SQUARES!!!

I’m saving the best for last in this entry….so you can skip the entree and head right on down to desert if you like…I won’t hold it against you, since I’d probably do the same thing.  I am going to talk a bit about the savory course though, because I’ve got a recipe, and it [...]

Fried Rice style Couscous

We all crave Chinese food sometimes (and if you say those little cardboard cartons full of grease and carbs don’t call out to you on occasion, you are either a stronger person than me….or lying.  So there.  That craving hit the other night, but I was of the belief that I could satisfy it without [...]

Curry Tofu and Mushroom Stoup and Toori

This “stoup” make actually be my favorite Rachael Ray recipe that I’ve made…but I shouldn’t say that, because I seem to remember really enjoying some at some point.  Instead we’ll just say that it’s my favorite for this week. I did make a few changes as well, so who knows, perhaps the original isn’t even [...]

Random Eatings

I was in the mood for some good ole sausage and peppers the other day, and went back to a classic Vegan Dad Recipe for sausages.  I replaced the Pinto Beans with Cannolini, and basically threw in half my spice rack, but other then that I stuck with the original.  While the sausages were steaming [...]

Pomegranite Tofu, Black Bean Burgers and Cretan Stew

The Black Bean burger from V’con is an old favorite of mine that I hadn’t done in awhile, and when I was poking around in the pantry the other day and saw a few cans of black beans, I knew what I had to do.  My favorite part of these is actually how well they [...]

A Little of Everything

So I keep meaning to get back to posting daily…and it just isn’t happening.  I still love cooking and taking pictures of the food I make, it’s just the actual posting that I’m getting bad at.  I will fix it though…I PROMISE.  Don’t lose hope.  A lot of the food I’ve been making lately is [...]

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 [...]

Saag Tofu with Naan

While I realize the name of the dish is Saag Panner (and that sounds so much more Indian then Saag Tofu does) I also realize that Paneer is a type of cheese, and this dish is 100% Vegan.  I’m kind of bummed I’ll lose the google traffic from people who search “VEGAN SAAG PANEER” but [...]

What’s been coming out of my Kitchen

What with the holidays approaching and all sorts of other stresses I just haven’t had time to post.  I have been cooking, but what happens is that I make things, forget about them, and once I finally upload the pictures, I vaguely remember the flavors, but have no clue what actually went into them.  So [...]
