One of the fundamental principles taught in English 101 is the essay “thesis statement”–that’s your stance on an issue, your argument, your point of view. When I first learned how to craft a thesis, my professor was very clear: never choose a topic related to life-or-death issues, because the goal of the essay is to […]

Meal-in-a-Bowl: Pesto-Bean Topped Salad

SONY DSC

Some people are born controversial, some achieve controversy, and others have controversy thrust upon them. I assume that by now most of you have heard the rumors about Toronto’s illustrious mayor Rob Ford.  It seems, allegedly, that there is an alleged video of the alleged mayor smoking some alleged crack cocaine with two alleged drug […]

I Am Thankful For. . . Unconventional Vegan Cassoulet

SONY DSC

For someone who considers her typical days to be fairly mundane, it does seem I’ve got quite a soft spot for all things unconventional. I’d trace this penchant for the eccentric back to my grade six art class with Miss Tarnofsky.  Miss T (we all thought it should stand for “Terror”) was the strictest, most […]

Layered Mexican Casserole*

*Or,  ACD-Friendly Fast Food.  Or, Intercultural Lasagna. Or, What to Do with those Nearly-Stale Nacho Chips.  Even though these days it takes me almost 15 minutes before I can stand up fully erect after first rolling out of bed (in which I sleep on my back, with 2 pillows under my knees so my spine can retain its proper […]

[It's okay.  You can have more than one.] After many gruelling trials (So many brownies! So much chocolate! All that taste-testing! Ah, the sacrifices I make in the name of food blogging), I’ve finally developed a recipe for fudgy, dense and delectable brownies that are grain-free, gluten-free, nut-free, dairy-free, egg-free, vegan, stevia-sweetened and ACD-friendly. Decadence […]

Flash in the Pan: Egyptian Fava Bean Breakfast

[Sometimes, you just want to eat something now.  I’ve decided to offer a mini-post every once in a while, for a dish that comes together incredibly quickly or else is so easy to make that no recipe is required. Here’s today’s “Flash in the Pan.” (For other FitP recipes, see “Categories” at right).] While reading […]

Food with a Great Personality (and Tuscan Bean and Chard Soup)

SONY DSC

[Dinner Bowl with millet, sesame chard, grated carrot, avocado, grape tomatoes, and almond sauce.] When I was about four and the Nurse was eight, my parents decided to have our portraits taken.  Now, in those days (we’re talking Dark Ages of technology, folks) no one had heard of digital photography, let alone Photoshop; you had […]

Autumnal Summer Salad–and Giveaway!

[As promised, today I’m posting a giveaway along with this recipe.  Who knew there were so many Larabar fans out there?  But no, my friends, sorry to say that no one guessed the bar I’m giving away!  (Though I did love Alex’s suggestion that it might be one of The Girls’ treats.). I’m guessing these bars […]

Even though the HH is of Scottish descent and I hail from the Poles and Russians (the joke possibilities are endless, aren’t they?), we live in a predominantly Italian neighborhood.   And while we enjoy a good relationship with most of our neighbors and have even become friendly with some of them, in some ways, living here […]
