Meatless!  . . . Tuesday. I’ll admit, I’m not that that creative with vegetarian cooking. Back in the day when I was jazzed about expanding my vegetarian horizons, I tried making tofu a lot. I deep fried little strips. I pan fried little squares. I slipped silken blobs into soups. I even tried baking it! […]

Okay, you guys, baby food is ugly. This has been your warning. But it’s soooo easy to make and I just couldn’t get through this phase without sharing a few of my go-to purees for the gremlins.

The Great Vegetarian Challenge: Day 6 Remember when I left 2 days open this week because I had no idea where the course of my life would take me? Well, one of those days was yesterday. I had a girlfriend over mid-afternoon to nibble on cheese and sip wine, and as the cozy rain showers […]

The Root of Happiness

I always forget how much I appreciate a big salad for dinner. They tend to be a lunchtime staple for me, and so often the idea of coming home after a long day to a plate of lettuce leafs lacks a bit of satisfaction appeal. Plus, it’s winter. We are supposed to be craving starches […]
