Horchata

Horchata

My friend Kate had a vegan taco night at her house. There are a number of delicious vegan foods – like salsa or guacamole – that I could have made to take that night. Instead, I decided that it was the perfect time for me […]

Curried Lentil-Stuffed Squash

Curried Lentil-Stuffed Squash

Now that the weather has convinced me that it’s fall, I’ve begun making seasonally-appropriate recipes. I’m not generally one for dishes that require presentation. I don’t put effort into how my food looks, as long as it looks tasty, and I’m more likely to make […]

Black Bean Soup

Black Bean Soup

My friend Theresa had a favorite recipe for black bean soup to share with me before I left my job last October. In an effort to eat healthily (and inexpensively – beans are cheap!), I decided I would go ahead and try it! Although the […]

Lentil Soup with Lemon

Lentil Soup with Lemon

[Edit: See the actual, updated recipe here.] I want to like lentils. They’re inexpensive, healthy, and quicker to cook than any beans around because you don’t have to soak them. I don’t use them often in part because I don’t know what to put them […]

Quinoa with Latin Flavors

Quinoa with Latin Flavors

I found the recipe for Quinoa with Latin Flavors a while ago, and after making it tonight, I’m sad that I waited this long to try it. Quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) is a South American grain; it’s gluten-free and a great source of protein. I’ve had […]

Stovetop Fideos

Stovetop Fideos

At some point before we moved, I finally had the time to read through my backlog of cooking magazines. I made a short list of recipes that I actually had all of the ingredients for, and that would thus be good to make to use […]

Meals, meals, and more meals

Meals, meals, and more meals

Although I’m lumping these several recipes together in this post, I didn’t actually make them together. I just realized that I hadn’t blogged about any recipes since last weekend, and I want to get a couple more out there while I’m thinking about it. I […]

Mushroom and Barley Risotto

Mushroom and Barley Risotto

Last night I found myself at a loss. It was a Monday night at home, and I didn’t have any blogging backlog to try to catch up on. I didn’t have any recipes I wanted to look up. I didn’t have anything new to review. […]

334: Curried Potatoes and Squash with 335: Indian Chapati

334: Curried Potatoes and Squash with 335: Indian Chapati

I managed to find a few vegetarian recipes when I came up with the list of recipes to make this month. I thought the recipe for Curried Potatoes and Squash sounded simple yet different, so I picked up the ingredients I needed and planned to […]

331: Mushroom Stew with Spaetzle

331: Mushroom Stew with Spaetzle

I must preface this entry with a note that I wasn’t in the best mood when I got home to make this recipe. I’d planned to make Mushroom Stew with Spaetzle, and so that’s what I decided to do, regardless of how I felt. Now, […]
