Warm and Cozy, Sweet and Sour

August 28, 2011


Confession time: I only eat breakfast once a week. Oh, I indulge in an enormous, dark cup of coffee every morning, but solid food generally isn’t introduced until 10 or 11. Sunday mornings are another creature. Lunch on Sundays happens in the afternoon, and I mean that in the most literal way possible. Church dominates […]

An Offal Adventure, Part 1

August 27, 2011


I not one of those people. You know, those people who go out of their way to obtain some outlandish food. No, I create food out of the normal food I already have in my cupboard. On a side note, today I drove a total of 3 hours on the cusp of an impending hurricane […]

Honey Mustard Potatoes and Butterbeer

August 26, 2011


Whatisthismadness, Idon’teven… Tonight’s dinner blew my socks and trousers off. In fact, my pantaloons almost went the same way. My roommate even ate with me, it was that good. If a man made this for me (and some dairy-free pudding injected cupcakes with scrumdibliumtious icing), I would marry him. Then again, those are some pretty high standards. I […]

Old Faithful: The story of my lunch.

August 26, 2011


It’s that time of week. I’ve hit the end of the loaf, the bottom of the bag, and the beginning of the end of my groceries. I ate my last apple yesterday and will eat the last two pieces of whole wheat bread today. At least there’s a little wine to go with my whine. […]

Green Goddess Pasta (a spin-off)

August 23, 2011


My lovely cousin who writes Cranberries and Croutons posted a recipe for Green Goddess Rice & Simplicity just a few days ago. As a loyal subscriber, I read the recipe and almost died of excitement. Her recipe has no milk. Shut the front door! I had to try it. Avocados and I are more than friends, […]

Liverwurst… worst lunch for work?

August 11, 2011


I have a confession to make… I absolutely love liverwurst. Call it my German and English heritage, but I find that creamed mass of liver meat delectable. Sure, it’s smelly. I wouldn’t want to kiss someone with liverwurst breath (gross!), but the aroma of a bit of liverwurst spread on a hot, toasty piece of […]

Bon appétit!

August 2, 2011


Bonjour! Welcome to my food blog, No Lait, S’il Vous Plaît!, which literally means No Milk, Please! I choose to live a dairy-free lifestyle, which means no milk, no cheese, no ice cream, no yogurt, and no butter. That’s right, no butter. Sorry, Julia Child! I cook with olive oil, not butter. The reason I […]
