Asparagus and Mustard Stir-fry with crisp tofu and peppers in a Spicy Sauce

As a matter of course, I am suspicious of anything that titles itself the “Complete Vegetarian Cookbook”  I don’t know why it’s considered acceptable in the Vegan/Vegetarian cookbook sector to call recipe collections “complete”, or “everything”, or “the end all be all”.  No other cookbook would claim to have every recipe ever, so how can [...]

Pomegranate Glazed Tofu over Saffron Rice

If there’s one thing I can never dismiss, it’s a culinary challenge (think beet boobs) and when POM sent out a call for “their” bloggers to create a recipe using POM…I had to start thinking.  Now that I’ve used all the Pomegranate juice I had I’m having new ideas, but I think I’m going to [...]

I am SUCH a posting bum

I think part of the reason I haven’t posted is because I haven’t made anything horribly exciting.  The one night I did make a really nice meal for company, I didn’t take any pictures, so there’s no proof anyhow. I’d have to say the best thing I’ve made recently was the Sweet Chili Lime Tofu [...]

Tofu with Applesauce…or Chutney

I’ve seen a trend that emerges whenever I look for apple recipes…without fail, I seem to end up on pork.  With the whole Kosher thing, followed by the Vegetarian thing almost seven years ago, I haven’t had, well…ANY occasion to eat pork, and to be honest I’ve never had the desire.  I DO however want [...]

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 [...]

Back after Hiatus

So I know the posting here has been  slow of late (and non-existent the last week and a half or so) but I’ ve  got good reason.  Life has been crazy.  I could give you a long list of excuses, but there’s just no point.  Suffice it to say I’ve had no time, and while [...]

Cucumber Salad and a Bok Choy Stirfry

Still MORE awesomeness from Michelle’s Garden…I went down and helped pick and weed the other day, and in return got a seriously generous bounty to take home with me. First off are the cucumbers from the garden, and when it comes to the cumber (yeah, I call them cumbers) I’m of the belief that simple [...]

Couscous with Tofu

I wasn’t in the mood to cook much (if at all…has it been hot and humid forever???) so my first thought was couscous.  You really only need to boil water for the couscous itself, and by the time you pour in the grain you can turn off the heat, so in terms of summer foods…it’s [...]

Tofu Tacos and Beans n’ Rice

There were 4 corn tacos heading towards retirement age in the fridge, and I decided that meant Mexican, which also led to the first time I’ve actually ever made beans n rice.  The tacos were ok, but the rice was AMAZING, so that’s the recipe I’ll share with you. Ingredients 1 1/4 cups jasmine rice [...]

A Story in Pictures

Lately I’ve been turning to Vegan Brunch for all my meals, some of which have been winners, others not as much.  I’m short on time and not terribly motivated (what can I say?  Humidity does that to me) so this is basically just going to be a list of pictures. First up, these are the [...]
