Stuffed Acorn Squash

Pardon the lack of posts with more than a picture as of late.  I’ve been a bit stressed out with deadlines (as always, it seems), but I have been cooking!  I’m working on catching up on everyone’s posts, never fear! When I went to the Farmer’s Market last time I bought a bunch of wintery […]

Vegan MoFo #22–Perfect Split Pea Soup

I never thought I would say this, but I’m in love with Martha Stewart’s recipes.  I spent hours on her site the other day clicking through album after album of food porn, oogling recipes, and finding the random delicious already vegan recipes mixed in with pig and fish extravaganzas.  It was a hedonistic experience not […]

Vegan MoFo #20–“Beef,” Leek, and Barley Soup

Ahhh Friday night.  A pie in the oven, rain down outside, wind howling through the trees, no central heat, and three cats pumped up on catnip. Right now I’m making the poet a s’mlove pie for tomorrow’s celebration–he’s taking his final comprehensive exam for his master’s program at 9 am!  I know he’s going to […]

Vegan MoFo #16–Okra Bowl

I am so so so sorry I’ve been MIA this weekend.  I feel dirty for not posting… it’s just that things keep piling up and I can’t get a handle on it.  Major presentation for one of my seminars today?  Yep.  Have I prepared?  Nope.  Major paper due for my other seminar on Wednesday?  Yep.  […]

Vegan MoFo #12–Brussels Sprouts

Sometimes really bad things happen to people–random acts of violence, robberies, muggings, etc.  And it’s really fucked up.  And it makes you question the government that is supposedly taking care of its people.  No worries, I’m fine, I’ve just been helping take care of someone who was affected. Caramelized Tofu & Brussels Sprouts So, short […]

Vegan MoFo #7–Rainy Day Chili

It’s raining!  It’s only 65 degrees outside!  It’s a miracle! While it may be October 8, when everyone is supposed to be feeling fallish, it’s been a [insert sarcasm] nice sunny humid 85 degrees here for the past week.  Soul killing.  But it was colder in the distant past, and I’m hoping it will be […]

Vegan MoFo #5–Seitanic Pot Pie

I’ve seen quite a few pot pie recipes going around lately–something to do with that combo of cooler weather, autumnal appeitites, and Vegan MoFo.  (smile) Pot pies, or pot pie-esque dishes are the ultimate comfort food to me.  I remember when my mom would throw a Marie Calendar’s Chicken Pot Pie into the microwave when […]

Vegan MoFo #3–Dinner in a Bowl

Happy Friday!  I’m going to keep it short (already a bit exhausted from three days of MoFo goodness), but just wanted to share the easiest most satisfying down-home dinner I’ve had in a long time: Tofutti Guacamole Sour Cream Mashed Potatoes Julienned Carrot and Zucchini lightly sauted in olive oil with almond slivers (a la […]

Chinese Orange Tofu & Vegetables

You can probably tell by now (if you check my blog on any kind of semi-regular basis) that I love to stir fry. All of the world’s evils can be corrected with a wok, tofu, vegetables, and some rip-off Chinese sauce. I’m normally pretty boring and make the garlic sauce 5 out of 6 times […]

Avocado Burgers, Or Why Jes Needs a George Foreman Grill

Sheba & Mistoffelees Sheba and Mistoffelees didn’t want to be outdone in cuteness by the kitten. I found them curled up like an old married couple this afternoon (and by “curled,” I mean the man is stretched out doing his thing and the lady is tucked in the nook of his stomach–so domestic!). On to […]
