Cauliflower Curry

Cauliflower Curry

I hated cauliflower as a kid. My mom forced me to eat broccoli and I tolerated it, and even grew to like it once I began cooking it as an adult. But I drew the line at cauliflower. I wouldn’t touch the stuff. As an […]

Butternut Squash, Cranberry, and Sorghum Salad

Butternut Squash, Cranberry, and Sorghum Salad

The other day I made a delicious Butternut Squash, Cranberry, and Sorghum Salad. I’d never used sorghum before, but I had to try it when I saw an inexpensive bag of it at a supermarket a few months ago. I decided to try it when […]

Vegan Pecan Pie

Vegan Pecan Pie

I made a fantastic pecan pie last weekend – and it just happened to be vegan. You heard that right – an egg-free and dairy-free pecan pie. It was quite good. Just as sweet and flavorful as the original. We had Friendsgiving over the weekend, […]

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 […]
