I Am Thankful For. . . Unconventional Vegan Cassoulet

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 […]

Raw Imitation “Fried Rice”*

* Or, “Nothing Like Fried Rice, Really, But Still One Darned Tasty Cauliflower Salad” [Sorry about the blur.  I may need to return to my old point-and-shoot until I finally read that new camera manual!] For those of us fascinated by the topic of food, December is more or less highjacked by baking projects.  Cookies for the cookie […]

Last Minute Thanksgiving Ideas

Flash in the Pan: Spurious Spuds (Cauliflower, Parsnip and Bean Mash)

[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.”] I was seduced by Mark Bittman last week. Now, hold on a minute–before you go and call the authorities, […]

Spiced Cauliflower Soup

  It occurred to me yesterday that the last three food posts on this blog have all been desserts.  Is this my chocolate withdrawal talking?  Well, maybe so, but that means a contrapuntal savory dish must make its appearance today.  No; more than just savory–we need something spicy.  No; more than just spicy; we need something SPICE-EEEE!  Aye, […]
