  • Holy Hot Avocados & Weeknight Dinners

    Holy hot avocados. Until this summer, I hated avocados (and guacamole). After a taste of my friend Christina‘s guac (just to be polite) this summer, I’ve converted.  Especially when they are hot. I toss cubed handfuls into eggs with cheddar cheese (green eggs no ham) and into stir fries. The few friends I’ve shared this […]

  • Post-Thanksgiving Quick “Recipe”: Mac ‘n Cheese with Chili

    I’ve been keeping Mac ‘n Cheese with Chili a secret from you for some time.  Mainly because it’s so so simple that I was embarrassed to share it with you.  And it involves a box and a can.  But I can’t in good conscience keep this combination of cheesy noodles, spicy soy protein and chewy, nutty […]

  • Tofu Medallions with Whole Wheat Spaghetti

    For those of you who don’t like tofu, I want to make a case for it.  If you are already sold on tofu, skip to paragraph 2 below.  Saying that tofu has no flavor is like saying an uncooked chicken breast tastes gross.  I’ve never had one, but I’m assuming you have to season and […]

  • Late Night Meals: Sesame-Garlic Soba Noodles

    We had a two and a half hour dinner last night.  I came home hungry.  Maybe it was baby. Maybe dinner was so long that I got full then hungry again before it finished. Maybe the Thai restaurant we picked, which is usually so good, was off it’s game (Halloween??). Take your pick but I think […]

  • 15 Minute Indian Chinese Noodles

    Quick is high on my list of redeemable recipe qualities.  Although, it’s right up there with tasty and healthy.  This sometimes makes for a challenging recipe hunt.  I picked up a few packs of MTR vermicelli noodles a few weeks back for experimenting with vermicelli style upma, or semiya upma.  As I started making the […]

  • Spicy Pesto 3 Ways: Basil-Mint Pesto Marinara

    Recipes that can be transformed from one dish into another and that hold up well as leftovers are really appealing to my schedule.  I usually leave home early in the morning and don’t return until after dark, sometimes toting along more work.  So, recipes like these which make for a quick and easy weeknight meal […]

  • Soupy Soba Noodles

    Earlier this week, I posted a recipe for a really easy stir-fry sauce with the forewarning that it’s really saucy.  It was so saucy and flavor packed that I thought it might work well as a soup and gave it a shot with the stir-fry leftovers.  As we watched President Obama address the nation, the […]

  • Saucy Soba Noodle Stir Fry

    Last Sunday, after a low key, relaxing spend-the-night with friends in Warwick, NY, we wanted a low key, relaxing dinner to cap off the weekend.  Stir fry is great because we just gather a few of our favorite veggies, throw them into the wok, pan fry or *grill a block of tofu and hit the […]

  • Cilantro-Chili Pesto Sauce

    A friend pointed that I didn’t provide instructions for making the cilantro-chili pesto sauce needed for my Vindaloo Pasta Sauce*.  Admittedly, that’s because I cheated and used leftover pesto that I bought from Union Market.  I was trying to finish up what I hadn’t used in our Tofu Scramble.  Here’s a recipe that I’ve used before to […]
