Greek Baked Ziti

Every so often I have to go back to my girl Rachael Ray, and see what she’s cooking up in the kitchen.  I was craving some pasta last night, and when I think happy, tummy-warming pasta casseroles, I often think about my girl Rachael, and I headed over to her website to see what she’d [...]

Mojo Seitan and Enchiladas

Mmmm enchiladas, nuff said.  As far as food goes, I’d have to say I grew up in a fusion household.  I don’t think it was intentional, but when I think back on it, my mother’s top specialties were (are) falafel (Middle Eastern), Kugel (straight up Ashkenazic Jew food), Stir Fry (Asian) and enchiladas(Mexican-ish).  Lasagna made [...]

Coming off an Injury with Fava Beans and Couscous

I realize its been awhile, but I’ve got a good excuse.  I got in a serious car accident about a week and a half ago now, and broke my collarbone, so after the eight and a half hours in the emergency room, I was all wound up in this intense sling/brace combination thing, and couldn’t [...]

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 [...]

Battered Tomato Salad and Baingan Bhartha

Everyone’s heard of fried green tomatoes, but large green tomatoes are hard to come by in these parts, and frankly whenever I pick up a large heirloom, I have an overwhelming desire to fry it.  What can I say?  They just seem to call out for the treatment.  This was a large yellow and orange [...]

The post-computer disaster food round-up

First I went to Pittsburgh for a few days where I wasn’t cooking, so there was no food.  Then my computer started doing wacky things…bad wacky.  It got worse and worse until it hit rock-bottom, became completely useless, and I had to wipe everything out and reinstall the operating system.  So that’s my story and [...]

Breaded Veggie “Casserole” and Chorizo con Papas

Sauteing things on the stove top is definitely the quickest way to cook, and lately I’ve been doing a lot of that, but the other night I was in the mood to oven bake SOMETHING, and came up with this recipe on the fly.  I was actually thinking loosely of the chickpea-broccoli casserole from VWAV, [...]

Book Winners, Cookies, and an Upcoming Review

First off, receiving a copy of Etre the Cow, are Sarah and Vanessa…both of you are getting an email from me asking for your mailing address, so that I can get that off to the publisher ASAP and get your copy of the book out.  Thanks for commenting with your favorite books as well, they’ll [...]

Matzoh Ball – Tomato Succotash

This is a recipe I lifted and tweaked from Susan V. over at FatFree Vegan, since it was already completely Passover friendly, and like pretty much everything else on earth, I figured it could only get better with matzoh balls.  (The only Passover food I legitimately enjoy).  I switched out pretty much all the veggies [...]

Not Israeli-Israeli Couscous and a FRESH Ragu

I’ve made a lot of couscous in my time, and eaten a lot too, but ironically the only kind I don’t like is “Israeli” Couscous, and by that I mean the kind with the huge chewy pearls that remind me of a cross between tapioca and millet…not really a plan.  Then again, as I see [...]
