Hoisin Green Beans

The other week when I was out of money and food with only $4 to my name, I popped into the farmer’s market that convenes every Tuesday on Emory’s campus to see what I could grab for a few bucks. For $3 I grabbed a bunch of green beans from one of the farms, walked […]

Broccoli Pesto

Sorry it’s taken so long! My money situation is finally worked out, which means that I can afford groceries to make tasty things with, which means that I could renew my flickr, which means that I can get back in the swing of things, etc! Since coming back from vacation in New York, I’ve been […]

Pistachio Crusted Tofu

Remember Shake n’ Bake? That glorious mix of bread crumbs and parmesean and god-knows-what-else-but-it-was-tasty? Yeah, I miss it sometimes. Who knows, maybe there’s a by-accident vegan Shake n’ Bake out there, but it wouldn’t be right without the chicken. Do I miss chicken? No. I just miss the baked crusty deliciousness of what’s put on […]

Long Bean & Grape Tomato Salad–for David

I’m back! The beach was good (well, as good as it could get for me). Being bedridden with a view of the Atlantic tide rising and falling every day isn’t too bad. Watching flocks of pelicans congregate, honk their voices out, and skim for fish isn’t too bad. Having six good friends rally for your […]


Yours truly managed to get Mono during finals! Woohoo! Ok, really, it’s not exciting. But it does explain why I kept passing out on my couch when I tried to write papers or study for my one final exam. It also explains why I haven’t posted anything on here for awhile. I’ve hardly been cooking. […]

Vegan Crab Cakes & Chipotle Tartar Sauce

One of the things I love about finals is procrastination. It normally bites me in the ass, but seriously, it tastes really good. Tonight I should have written a paper on the political animal. Instead I made vegan crab cakes. So worth it. Jhenn over at Vegan Ronin posted a good looking recipe for crab […]

Lazy Never Tasted So Good

Thanks for the comments on the flower picture. I’m rarely given flowers and the few times that I have been, the guys have been off the mark (sorry, I’m just not a roses or daisies kind of girl). Happily, this time, he was right on. The poet brought me this sprig of fresia before we […]

Spicy Peanut Noodles

I try really hard to be healthy, I really do, and you’d think eating vegan would make that easier. Oh well. Nature over nurture? (smile). Heidi over at 101 Cookbooks is one of my blog loves. She cooks some of the most delicious and healthy (and mostly vegetarian) fare I’ve seen in a long time. […]

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 […]

Hash Browns Make My World Go ‘Round

I’m not a health nut. I’m not a “good” vegan either. When given the chance at a fancy enough place, I will break my veganism. Does that make me a bad person? Nah. Just realistic. And addicted to chocolate. Don’t tell anyone that I ate that flourless chocolate cake at Carrol St. Cafe last night. […]
