Rainy Day Cream of Broccoli Soup

My food has been a bit brown lately, so how about some green? Granted, while this soup isn’t the most vibrant green you’ve ever seen, it is hinting towards warmer weather and rainbow colored produce. I cannot wait for spring! But for now I’m stuck indoors with the rainy day blues. Thankfully this bowl of […]

International Pancake Day–Aloha Cakes

I somehow missed National Margarita Day on February 22 (and I’m super sad about that), so I’m not about to let International Pancake Day go to waste! Although now I’m thinking that I should have invented the margarita pancake…ohhh I have my next brunch adventure planned! Pancake Day is celebrated around the world on Shrove […]

Agave Oat Bread & Carrot Hummus

Sometimes I just want hummus. And fresh bread. And sometimes, just sometimes, I have time to make both. I’m just lazy, and while dried chickpeas are 800x cheaper than canned, and more sustainable (less packaging), I always forget to soak them overnight. But this time I remembered! The past few Vegetable Husband boxes have had […]

Pierogies and Sauerkraut

One of the things I love the most about being a vegan is calling my mom and saying “guess what I ate” and her not believing me.  Sauerkraut is definitely one of those things!  I’ve been craving pirogies for years.  Years, I tell you.  The only problem is that I never knew I wanted them […]

Back in the Dirty, Dirty

Oh Atlanta, you’re always here for me, whether I want you or not!  But it is good to be home, in some ways.  For instance, I just extended my lease through August (when I’ll be moving for grad school), but because I hate the apartment and I’m not looking forward to staying here longer than […]

Chicago Bound!

It’s ridiculously awesomely warm down south! I am heading to Chicago tomorrow afternoon for 2009 AWP (Association of Writers and Writing Programs) conference! Things I’m looking forward to (in no particular order): hearing/meeting Donald Hall, Nick Flynn, Dorothy Allison, Andrew Hudgins, Claudia Emerson, Heather McHugh, Paul Mauldoon, and many more that I don’t know about […]

Rustic Cabbage Soup

Just a bit of housekeeping to begin with! In case you haven’t noticed, I now have a “Recipe Box” tab at the top of my page. I’ve tried to categorize my posts as succinctly as possible so that you can search for recipes easier. The WordPress search box just wasn’t working so well. Let me […]

Russian Cabbage Soup & Sauerkraut Rye Bread

February?!  February?!  How is this possible?   One month to finish a complete draft of my thesis, less than two months before I have to move (to a temporary location), a little over one month to my birthday (yay, that’s fun!)   But in spite of the books and papers and everything else piling up, you can […]
