I love making galettes. Especially when I have an overflow of vegetables that I need to use. In the past, I’ve made quiches as a means to clean out the assorted veggies multiplying in the fridge. But I like the simplicity of the galette, with its rustic appearance, high vitamin […]
These sushi rolls are easy, yummy, and I don’t have to worry about dealing with raw fish. I leave that to the professionals! Besides, these are amazing just as their little veggie selves. Veggie Sushi Rolls 1 cup sushi rice 2 Tbsp rice wine vinegar 1 Tbsp sugar ½ […]
Perfect for cold winter weather, oatmeal is a quick and easy breakfast that you can make any morning of the week. It comes together in a only 10 minutes, from start to spoonful. This is one time that a “fast food” defies the negative label. With organic, heart-healthy oats, fiber-rich […]
The most striking thing about this dish is the vibrant gold and yellow colors. Chopping the beets and squash made me almost feel as if it were fall, instead of this white winter urban wilderness. Is it true that pretty food also tastes better? Umm… yes! The more senses […]
During the final days of 2014, I tried Legal Seafood’s Bang Bang Cauliflower. It was an appetizer for the table to share, but I could have eaten the entire thing myself. I like cauliflower anyway, but this was incredible with the spicy red sauce coating, it was hard to even […]

The tomato plants gave us a so-so amount of tomatoes this year. But once the fall season crept up while we were away on the west coast, they suddenly sprouted another crop of tomatoes. Sadly, the weather did not stay warm enough. After a few nights of dragging them inside […]
This weekend we drove way, way out to where the apple orchards live, and got 5lbs of crisp, fall apples. As much as my nose crinkles at the idea of two hours in the car, it’s worth it. The NEXT DAY, my car still smelled like freshly picked apples!
I’ve wanted to try dragonfruit all summer. They look weird, but taste good, like a light kiwi. I looked for dragonfruit recipes, but there are not many. It’s such a light tasting fruit, it would be lost in a complicated recipe. The pineapple glaze on this tart goes great with […]
