Fennel Zuccini Soup

I’m fairly certain this was my first time using a recipe from Bon Appetit….and it went well.  I’m not sure how they obtained the color and texture in their picture…perhaps they peeled their zucchini, although I’m not sure why you would do that…all the flavor a zucchini has is in the skin.  Mine was also [...]

Eggplant Dengaku and Quinoaaaaaa

We’re coming into quinoa season, I can tell.  Not that quinoa isn’t widely available year round and pretty much impervious to weather changes, but my quinoa season happens soon…real soon.  It’s called Passover, and as an Ashkenazi Jew and Vegetarian, it’s pretty much the only thing resembling a grain or protein that I can eat.  [...]

Adventures in Appetite for Reduction

I’ve been hearing all these great things about the Arabian Lentil and Rice Soup from Appetite for Reduction.   I also thought it would go really well with the sweet potato drop biscuits from the same book.  I replaced the lentils in the soup with fava beans (because I just can’t bring myself to want anything [...]

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, [...]

Potato-Turnip Green Soup and Green Thai Curry

I’m not entirely sure what makes potato-kale soup latina…it’s a dish I’ve done before in several varieties, and I don’t find it terribly innovative in a Vegan cookbook anymore, but it’s good nonetheless (especially with the days cooling down as they have been) and I did like the addition of some fried-up sausage on top.  [...]

Italian Vegetable Soup and Maple Mustard Baked Veggies

I made a soup that was in the grocery circular…and it was ok, but nothing special.  Here: Tomato Sauce, broth and lots of veggies was the name of the game…it would’ve been better with some fresh breadsticks or something to dip.  It’s also getting  a bit warm for soup, so maybe that’s why I was [...]

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 [...]

Diet, Dessert and Dogs…times 3

So one of my favorite Vegan Blog reads is over at Diet, Dessert n Dogs where pretty much EVERYTHING pictured looks absolutely mouth-watering, and makes me want to eat it NOW.  This week I decided to give a few of the recipes I’d been lusting after a try, and wasn’t disappointed, although one was a [...]

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 [...]

Mystery Bag Part 2

I’m a big proponent of simplicity, and while I thought of combining this with blocks of cheese, or tofu, or adding lots of fancy spices, in the end I simply couldn’t do it, and I wouldn’t add a thing to the final product.  These tomatoes all came from the garden bag, although I can’t remember [...]
