Quick and Easy Curried Cabbage

It may have taken a while, but I’ve finally come to embrace my inner nerd and display her proudly (rather than try to quash her idiosyncracies, as I did when younger). Maybe it’s related to the success of The Big Bang Theory, which makes nerdiness cool; maybe it’s the effects of menopause (after which you […]

Gingered Potatoes with Browned Onions and Tomatoes

I get a lot of questions about the Candida Diet (or Anti-Candida Diet–ACD, as I call it). Most of the time, people either want to know what it is I ate and/or eat now (I outlined the different stages of my diet, and all the foods I ate, on the FAQ page, here). Sometimes, however, […]

Butternut and Edamame Hash

After that harrowing ordeal in the airport and the relentless carnival atmosphere of Miami Beach in the first half of our trip, the HH and I were more than ready to head north to Sarasota, where my cousin Marketing Guru (MG) had promised a more serene lifestyle.  So let’s hit the road, shall we?

You Say Potato Curry, I Say Aloo Masala

In my imagination, I’d love to live on a farm. I say “in my imagination” because, in my reality, I’m actually the farthest thing from a farm type of gal (“What the-?  What do you mean, 5:15 is the normal time for the rooster to crow?!!”  OR, “What do you mean, it’s almost 2 hours to the closest Barnes […]

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, Carumba!!
