Spiral cut vegetables aren’t REALLY a substitute for pasta, but they’re still tasty.
Vegetables and Frappuccinos
It seems that there are only two types of fat people we get to see: the stereotype of the lazy fat person who eats a lot and never exercises (the “bad fatty”), or the fat person who works out hard and eats foods commonly accepted as healthy, but just doesn’t lose any weight (the “good […]
Soup of the Day: Tofu and Dumplings
Growing up in a place where the summers are hot, but the winters are atrocious (thank you, lake-effect snow!) there was nothing like a warm stew or soup to perk you up from the winter blues, while simultaneously warming up a perpetually drafty home. The tradition in my home was two thrifty, go-to meals: potato […]
This recipe for lentil soup came to me in a bit of recipe-related serendipity.
My mother recently brought home a box full of produce from one of the area Hutterite colonies (no, not the colony on the NatGeo show, though they do live near here), and among the selections were baby red potatoes and fresh green beans. How fortuitous it was that I’d just discovered a recipe using them.
There are, at last count, four dictionaries sitting on my kitchen table. A Collins, an Oxford, an Aberdeen University Press edition and a Chambers. All for the sake of trying to find out exactly what a broth is, and in particular, a Scotch broth. The basic definition that they all just about agree on, is […]
We Try It! Growing Your Own Starters
Many of my amazing friends and family have started their own square foot gardens. I set one up for myself…sort of”¦a couple of years ago. The first year, my garden wasn’t built until early June.
Back when I was first learning how to cook (short version: I was pregnant and very, very hungry), I used to obsessively check AllRecipes.com for new dishes to make. The recipes were fairly straightforward, the reviews sometimes helpful, and it was a large enough database that I could keep everything I wanted to try saved in […]
I’m going to tell you something that most people find weird. I used to eat iceberg lettuce by the head. Like an apple. It was the most delicious thing.
Grilling Fruits and Veggies
So, yeah, there’s really no purpose to posting a recipe for grilling, say, a hamburger. Not only because it’s so fool-proof but because everyone has their own conventions and rituals for doing so. So I thought I’d shine a light on the underdogs of the grilling world: fruits and vegetables.
TDG: Fruit and Veggie Photo Spam
I’m starving, and I really want something that grew in the dirt to eat, so for this morning’s daily goodie I’ve found a whole bunch of gorgeous photos from my favorite photo source, morguefile. Find all sorts of pretties after the break, 100% animal product free for our vegan reader friends.
Holy Crap! I Made Risotto!
…But before you get too excited, its brown rice risotto. See, I’m trying to eat healthier. It’s been a journey for me the past few years, trying to change my food habits. It doesn’t help that I’m married to the king of White Bread and Honeybuns who won’t eat anything that has whole grains and […]
When people ask me what my favorite thing about New York City is, this is my answer: Produce Carts. For serious. Of all NYC has to offer, produce carts top my list. I can leave the gym feeling a little 11 0’clockish and go to my very favorite produce stand on the corner and get […]
