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 […]

Sweet Potato and Black Bean Burgers

I’m a college student, so easy-to-prepare, easy-to-eat meals are extremely helpful. Some form of veggie patty or burger that I can freeze and then cook when needed is definitely preferable, and although my favorite recipe is my anarchy burger, avocados aren’t exactly in season so I needed to try something new. I’m fairly picky about […]

Easy-Peasy Pot Pie

Going to a top-tier research school in the US has a few perks, especially when said medical-biological-anthropological-scienceological-school supports arts and humanities. Take for instance tonight’s entertainment: a free full-dress rehearsal of Philip Glass’ Akhnaten, performed by the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and various crazy-awesome opera singers. Fewer than twenty productions of thi s rare work, which […]

Maple Mustard Glazed Tofu & Brussels Sprouts

This entry was submitted to the Click February 2009 Cheese/Tofu event.  You can read more about Click, a monthly food photography event here.  Check out Jai and Bee’s site, Jugalbandi, for more info on the rules and how to participate! Now what should I do with my new-found jar of delicious homemade mustard, you might […]

Chinese Pot Stickers & Baby Bok Choy

Rewind to 1991.  Taiwan.  I’m four years old (eek I dated myself, forgive me…) and everything smells like fish.  Which is an ok thing because I love fish, just not fish heads or fish eyes which our hosts (friends of my parents) keep trying to get me to eat.  My mom says it’s a delicacy, […]

Barley Butternut Risotto

While I was freezing up north it was 65-70 degrees down here.  As soon as I flew home, however, the South decided to chill up a bit.  I’m trying to not take it personally…but, well, I want it to be warm!  Seriously, if I end up at University of Montana this fall, I’m not sure […]

Step Three: Soup!

How the heck is Christmas next week?  I’m flying to Boston (anyone have good vegan restaurant suggestions?) on Thursday, and somehow I have to be ready for everything by then!  Time flies a bit too fast for my taste. Oh, and since I’m out of town for the holiday, my mom gave me my Christmas […]

Komatsuna Greens in Ginger Almond Miso Sauce

It’s hard to post something fabulous after a bake-off win, but let me introduce you to my new friend, the Komatsuna Green.  This delicious little leafy thing came in my first Vegetable Husband basket (a service I’m eternally thankful to Leigh for posting about) and I knew it was the first ingredient I wanted to […]

Ode to Pumpkin in December

Dear Pumpkin, Everyone tells me that you’re a fall vegetable meant to spice up the autumn season and match the falling leaves.  However, I have this theory that you’ll taste just fine, thank you, during the more wintery months.  Plus I love roasting you and would hate to throw our entire relationship away just for […]

Fettuccine No-Fredo

Remember how I said I bought a ton of roastable veggies–and then realized that I’d actually have to roast them?  One of the veggies I had on hand was a fairly large head of cauliflower.  A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, I used to be a bit more bike punkish than […]
