Peanut Sauce

Peanut Sauce

This sauce makes a great dipping sauce for spring rolls or a sauce to go on meats, stir fry, veggies, or even pasta.  It’s very versatile and has an Asian flavor to it.  Try it with whatever your making next time that’s Asian themed and it’ll really bring the whole dish up a level.  My […]

Miso Soup

Miso Soup

As you may have guessed, I’m REALLY picky.  I pretty much assume anything I don’t like must be gross.  Typically, I’m wrong.  The most egregious error I’ve made due to my pickiness was assuming that all soups were gross. Every time I try a new soup, I think back to my not-soup-eating days and all […]

Green Smoothies and my first GIVEAWAY

March 7, 2012
Green Smoothies

When Hilary Greenleaf sent me an email asking if I wanted to talk about green smoothies and her new book “The Green Smoothie Diet,” my first thought was “No way, smoothies with spinach are definitely no good.”  For some reason, I decided to reply and say, “Let me check out your book first.”  After reading […]

Fresh Linguine

Fresh Pasta

It took me a long time, but I finally did it.  I made my own pasta – fresh linguine at that. Being a vegetarian in college, pasta was pretty much all I ate.  I had mac and cheese far too often and when it wasn’t mac and cheese, it was some frozen pasta meal.  I […]

Plum Margarita

Plum Margarita

I love plums.  They are my second favorite food (because whose favorite food isn’t mac and cheese?).  When I saw them in the store for the first time this year, I freaked out.  There weren’t very many and they were way overpriced because it’s not quite plum season yet, but I bought some anyway.  Generally […]

Spicy Blackened Tilapia

Spicy Blackened Tilapia

I’m trying to be adventurous.  I’m a fairly picky eater and I tend to stay away from meats and fish, but I’ve been trying to branch out.  When my boyfriend orders meat or seafood at a restaurant, I’ll try a bite.  It’s a big step for me.  Usually I’m not a huge fan of what he […]

Chinese Steamed Buns

Chinese Steamed Buns

I first tried Shinese steamed buns when a vegan friend prepared an elaborate dinner for a little party.  They were delicious.  Whenever I try to find Chinese steamed buns like her’s, they ALWAYS have pork in them.  That’s when I took matters into my own hands.  “I can bake, and I can cook.  I should […]

I’m very excited for tomorrow.  I am January 6th Foodista’s Featured Drink Blog of the Day for my post Mike’s Sunrise! To celebrate, I made another drink!  This drink is very fruity but it’s mostly peach flavored.  I have named it “Just Peachy.”  I love colorful drinks and blue curacao is just perfect for adding flavor […]

Tomato Basil Bread

I love Panera and Paradise Bakery (as a side note, have you ever noticed how similar those two places are?  It’s uncanny).  I always get the same thing when I go.  I get the “you pick two” with the Mediterranean Veggie sandwich and mac & cheese.  OK, maybe not always the same thing, sometimes I […]
