Beanless Vegetable Chili

July 28, 2013


The title of this post alone might be enough to send some die-hard chili fans into apoplectic fits. Not only is this chili meatless, it doesn’t even contain beans. You might find yourself wondering why I would even make a chili excluding the two most common ingredients – it’s simple. Sometimes you just have things […]

Strawberry Banana Strata

July 3, 2013


I know. I know. It’s been awhile. Hopefully this recipe helps make up for that just a little. I had strawberries, I had bread, and I needed a breakfast that would be awesome but leave me with most of my morning to do other things. Enter the strata. All the prep work happens the night […]

Sometimes There Is No Recipe

September 10, 2012


When my fridge is full of vegetables and my stomach is grumbling I haven’t got time to follow a recipe.  I haven’t even got time to write it down as I make it up.  This was one of those times.  I had broccoli, cucumbers, tomatoes, and fresh basil in the fridge.  Hmm, I said to […]

Raspberry Hemp Muffins

July 13, 2012


It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a recipe, but I haven’t wanted to cook very much given the ridiculous temperatures.  Still, I had a container of delicious raspberries sitting in the fridge from the week’s CSA share, and I wasn’t just going to let them go to waste.  The hemp seeds* were a great way […]

Can You Help Me?

May 22, 2012


Ever since I got back from my trip, I’ve been craving tacos like the ones I had in Portland.  What my coworker called real tacos.  They were made with shredded beef instead of ground beef, wrapped in fresh corn tortillas, and topped with chopped onions and cilantro.  The beef was cooked very simply, with jalapenos, […]
