Homemade Dairy-Free Alfredo Sauce (or Dip)

October 30, 2011

2

Do you ever feel like you have just glimpsed inside the mind of a famous chef? I certainly did after creating this dairy-free Alfredo masterpiece. Did I mention that my entire family thought it was made with cheese? Yeah, they were all surprised it was vegan. One of the perks of being completely dairy-free is accidentally making […]

Poor Man’s Vegan English Mini-Pasty

September 29, 2011

Ohmygoodfriend’spajamas. Sometimes I surprise myself with supremely superb dishes. I wish I were still hungry, just so I could eat another one of these vegan mini-pasties. When I was in England, my kind English pal introduced me to English pasties. Pasties are a sort of smaller calzone filled with beef, potato and onion, although there […]

Swordfish: The Healthy Steak of the Sea

September 22, 2011

This week I cooked swordfish for the first time in my life. As a young twenty-something and on a tight budget, I buy whatever is on sale. Although I would love to eat salmon twice a week, it’s just not happening. Woe is me, I had to try swordfish to fill my imaginary fish quota […]

Fall is here! Woooooo! It’s time for fall vegetables, apples (and apple sauce!), pears (and pear sauce!), and all those wonderful harvest foods. Oh my goodness, I cannot wait to make pumpkin muffins and apple crisp. I. cannot. wait. This week, I started off the fall vegetable medley extravaganza with sweet potatoes and yellow squash. […]

Kale and Kidney Beans: An Accidentally Vegan Meal

September 14, 2011

2

Lately, I’ve been flirting with kale. It’s like the beginning of a love affair. I feel so guilty. My other vegetables may get a little jealous, but kale is oh-so-tempting. It’s cheap, delicious, versatile, and can be a side or a meal. When steaming, it still maintains its hard stalk, but the leaves become soft. […]

An Offal Adventure, Part Deux: The Eats

September 1, 2011

Hello world, I just ate haggis… again. I’m a changed woman. It tastes extremely similar to corned beef hash, actually. It’s just that the corned beef is liver and the hash is oat. So, not much like it, but similar in texture and appearance. Go figure. I may not brush my teeth with a bottle of Jack, […]

Honey Mustard Potatoes and Butterbeer

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 […]
