Curry Pie

I have a problem. I love curry. I love my wok. I have no idea how to cook for one person. Before I moved, I had a bunch of mushrooms that were about to go bad. I also had a bag of frozen peas. And, per usual, tons of spices and curry pastes and coconut […]

21 & 5

So it’s my birthday today. It’s also the anniversary of the “War on Terror.” Almost one quarter of my life aligns with this “war.” Whatever your political persuasion may be, it’s definitely worth thinking about peace. And check out all the bloggers on the March 19 Blogswarm while you’re at it. It’s hard to claim […]

Hostel Bread

Everyone is ok–some friends ended up with trees on their houses, one lost all her trees in her yard, one is banned from his loft until the insurance company decides what to do, but everyone is alive and well.

And addicted to chocolate. Don’t tell anyone that I ate that flourless chocolate cake at Carrol St. Cafe last night. […]

But Everyone’s Doing It!

Julie Hasson’s steamed sausages are taking over the internet. No joke. Who around here hasn’t already made them??? Really??? You should be ashamed of yourself! Go make some! I have to admit, vital wheat gluten has always mystified me a bit. I’m not talented at making seitan. It always ends up lumpy and pretty looking. […]

Peace Offering

Vegan Eggnog Cupcakes

I’m finally done with the semester! Whoever decided that exams could run until the 19th and then slated my last boring general education requirement class on the last exam period of the last day, 4:30 pm on the 19th, is evil. But now I have time to do more things like baking! Ok, or, if […]
