Anti-Candida Friendly Tempeh "Bourguignon"*

SONY DSC

*Well, it’s not really “bourguignon.”  But it is ACD friendly, sugar free, gluten free, and vegan.  And it tastes delicious. What more could you ask for? I will never forget the first lecture I attended as a callow undergraduate at the University of Windsor: it was Modern American Drama, with a professor named Dr. John Ditksy. […]

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 […]

Well-Balanced Red and Green for the Holidays: Chiles en Nogada

SONY DSC

One of the most common traits exhibited by Libras is, supposedly, “indecisiveness.”  As a Libra myself, I don’t really mind that description.  Well, maybe a little.  But not really–it’s all in good humor, right?  Then again, who likes to be called “indecisive”?  Am I offended?! Yes. No. Definitely. . . . maybe. Represented by the scales, Libras […]

Let’s Get This Party Started: Tempeh Bacon-Topped, Roasted Plum and Baby Spinach Salad

Well, it’s Canadian Thanksgiving on Monday, which can only mean one thing:  Star Trek marathon on Space Channel!  Or maybe: Ellen Page gets a surprise celebration from buddy Justin Long? Or how about: only 257 more days until summer? Okay, in reality, Thanksgiving means that, like it or not, the holiday season is already upon us.  […]

Lucky Comestible 5 (5): “Ground” Tempeh in a Cilantro Curry Sauce

SONY DSC

[I thought it would be fun to run a little series over here at DDD: I'll profile one one of my favorite foods, or a food that I've recently discovered and enjoyed, over several days.  For this fifth edition, I'm focusing on cilantro. The series is presented on an occasional (and entirely arbitrary) basis, before I move on to the next lucky […]

Sweet and Spicy Tempeh

  After the HH and I had been dating for about four months and he’d already passed the “willing to tolerate my multiple quirks and neuroses” test, I decided it would be acceptable for him to finally meet my family and old friends in Montreal.  I cajoled coerced begged invited him to join me one weekend as […]

My Favorite Mistake: Savory Filled Breakfast Crepes

opencrepe1

  I really hate making mistakes.  Not only because they sometimes wreak havoc (“What?  The model of Stonehenge on stage was supposed to be 18 FEET high, not 18 inches???” or, “What?  But I thought the BLUE was the ‘panic button,’ Mr. President!!!”), but also because they make me feel really knuckle-brained sometimes (“Um, HH, can you […]

Reubenesque Sandwich

Sometimes I wish I’d lived in the 1600s.  No, not for the lack of modern excesses like cell phones or Doritos or Survivor. Not for what was, in those days, the nonchalant expectation of personal chefs, cleaners, and maids (and all for no pay!). Not for the lack of indoor plumbing, heating, electricity or even daily bathing  (as I recently […]

A Joy: Pot Luck Club

emptytable1

 I’m still quite new to blogging, and I certainly proved it last evening.  At my house was a group of six amazing women–three whom I met at my nutrition school, one from a long-ago volunteer gig, and the last as a participant in one of my (now defunct) cooking classes–and each brought at least one fantastic, high-saliva […]
