Thai Noodle Tofu Salad feature

Thai Noodle Tofu Salad with Sweet & Hot Peppers

I think I have a new favorite summer salad. The creamy dressing clinging to the noodles makes this so satisfying that it can be used for a main dish as well as a salad. My husband and I kept going back for more until we were totally carbed out! This would make a perfect dish to pass at a party. It’s easy to make and doesn’t need to be refrigerated so … Read More...

Zucchini Squash Pizza feature

Zucchini Squash Pizza with Parsley Sage Rosemary & Thyme

A number of events converged which resulted in my making this pizza today. First, as mentioned in this post, a friend let me go crazy with my clippers in her herb garden and I wanted to use them up while they were still fresh. Second, I recently picked up a copy of Simon & Garfunkel’s greatest hits which of course includes the timeless song … Read More...

Tri-Color Cole Slaw with Dill & Currants 1

Tri-Color Coleslaw with Dill & Currants

Summers and coleslaw were made for each other. So when my friend invited me to raid her herb garden, I knew immediately what I wanted to do. I had already planned that morning to make a big batch of coleslaw and the addition of her dill would be perfect. Unfortunately I don’t have my own garden and am limited to my kitchen window sill for growing my … Read More...

Vegan Chopped Salad 1

Vegan Chopped Salad with Garbanzo Beans, Pea Sprouts & Edamame

There are many things I love about a chopped salad, like the variety of ingredients you can add and that it’s easy to eat since everything is conveniently chopped up. What I don’t love about a traditional chopped salad is that all of the good vegetable stuff in it gets overshadowed by the bacon, cheese, turkey, chicken, hard-boiled egg and Thousand … Read More...

Vegetable Pizza with Buckwheat Almond Crust 10

Loaded Vegetable Pizza with Buckwheat & Almond Flour Crust

The last time I made pizza I was a kid. I think it came in a box with separate packets for dough and sauce. I guess the reason I haven’t made it since is because it’s so easy to pick up a slice almost anywhere. But as I’m trying to cut gluten out of my diet as well as drop a few pounds, traditional pizza isn’t going to help. There are tons of recipes … Read More...

Cream of Spinach Soup with Arugula and Parsley 5

Cream of Spinach Soup with Arugula & Parsley

I didn’t plan on making this to post on the blog.  I was just really hungry and didn’t feel like having my usual afternoon green smoothie.  The weather has been cool again and I wanted something to warm me from the inside out.  I threw in everything that was green in the fridge and less than 15 minutes later, there it was.  It tasted so good that I … Read More...

Kidney & Black Bean Salad Edamame Cilantro Lime 1

Kidney & Black Bean Salad with Edamame Cilantro & Lime

Some recipes present quite a challenge for me to create. Others come rather easily, like salads. I’m guessing it’s that way for a lot of people. Salads are usually pretty easy to prepare in that they rarely involve cooking time – just a lot of chopping. We bought a new knife recently in China town – something that probably would cost over a hundred … Read More...

Curried Quinoa Tofu Salad feature

Curried Quinoa Tofu Salad with Currants Shallots & Parsley

Summer officially arrives this weekend so it’s time to start cranking out a big variety of salads. This versatile salad is both sweet and savory. I’m always looking for more ways to season tofu and curry works very well. The key is to let the tofu marinate in the dressing for at least 30 minutes so the flavor soaks all the way through to the … Read More...
