New Age Vegan Pasta Carbonara

The past couple of weeks have been beyond hectic here at the DDD household, what with a surprise party (at my place) for my office mate; a wedding shower (no, not mine–okay, breathe normally now); two new courses to prepare for my return to teaching next week (what?? Seriously, is my vacation over already?); and some […]

You Win Some, You Lose Some: Relationships, Restaurants and Recipes

[Update, April 15, 2010:  Did you know that Ellen Degeneres has read my cookbook?? Waaa-hooo!  I could not be more thrilled, especially since I’m sure she noticed because of our EL-LENd Me a Hand campaign!! THANK YOU a million times to everyone who has been participating so far!  Now I’m more determined than ever to […]

Green Day:* French Green Soup with Spinach, Lettuce and Peas

*No relation to the band of the same name, of course. [Holy shamrock! That soup really is rather green!] After being on the ACD for a full year now, I must admit to feeling a bit like a basket case (my, time sure does fly when you’re [not] having fungus).  Having cut out poprocks and coke–not to mention […]

Food for What Ails Ya: Lentil Rissoles

Just like Anna Karenina’s unhappy families, everyone deals with illness in her or his own way. The HH, for instance, when struck with a cold or flu, takes to his (ie, our) bed for two days or so.  He doesn’t talk; he doesn’t watch TV; he doesn’t eat; he barely uses the bathroom. Then, after […]

Autumnal Summer Salad

  Remember last week, when I crowed about summer finally arriving in Southern Ontario?  Well, little did I know that that single day would constitute the entire season!  As of this week, we’re waking up to a distinct chill under ever-darkening skies;  there’s condensation on my car windows when I slip into the driver’s seat; and the […]

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

[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 […]

A Fresh Start. . . and 2008’s Last (Food-Related) Hurrah

[Potato-Kale Curry] First, and most importantly: Happy 2009, everyone!  Thank you all so much for your wonderful comments and good wishes for the new year.  I can’t even begin to express how much I appreciate them all and how much blogging has brought into my life.  But by far, the best part is you–readers and other […]

Virtual Spring: Katie’s Creamy Aspara-Dip

Well, it snowed AGAIN yesterday (is this grating on your nerves as much as it’s grating on mine?* I mean, it is now March 19th.  Like, what’s up with that? Snow is just. . . so. . . wrong at this time of year.  In either hemisphere). I am yearning for spring like the Tin Man yearns for a […]
