Lemon Basil Hummus

The other week C and I had in (some of) our siblings for dinner, because can you believe it they had actually never met!  We squeezed into our tiny apartment for some good drinks, food, and laughs.  While I like to think that my food was the hit of the party... I think my little niece P stole the show.  She's just so darn cute! ...more

Grilled Tofu Salad with Miso Dressing from Steamy Kitchen

I'm a huge fan of tofu, and I'm always looking for easy tofu recipes to expand my limited knowledge about how to cook it at home. This recipe for Grilled Tofu with Miso Dressing went right to the top of my "must try" list! Not only is the recipe quick and easy, but the Miso Dressing has so many of my favorite Asian flavors like soy sauce, ginger, and sesame.

Chinglish Coinpurses

So before you think that I’m a completely culturally insensitive jerk and I just launch into my musings on food for the day, let me just clarify that I got the inspiration for the title of this post from the Broadway play named Chinglish.  I may say jerky things from time to time (ok...more

Spicy Cauliflower Soup from A Veggie Venture

Did you know there are two holidays today? Of course everyone knows it's Martin Luther King Day in the U.S., but you might not know that it's International Hot and Spicy Food Day. As soon as I heard that I thought it would be fun to find something that was unexpectedly spicy for Meatless Monday. What I wanted was a hot and spicy recipe for a dish that's not normally hot and spicy, and Spicy Cauliflower Soup from A Veggie Venture fits that description perfectly. Most cauliflower soups are rich and creamy but this one is healthful and deliciously spiced with coriander, cumin, chili powder, and turmeric in addition to the red pepper flakes. Alanna says the inspiring recipe suggests you could eat it with a dollop of plain yogurt, and I'd definitely want that on mine to cool down the heat....more

Squash Kale Pizza from The Way the Cookie Crumbles

For anyone who may have dared to think that meatless pizza might be a tiny bit boring, may I offer this amazing-sounding Squash Kale Pizza from Bridget at The Way the Cookie Crumbles as this week's offering for Meatless Monday. I admit that since I've discovered how much I like kale I've become a bit kale-obsessed, and I think the idea of using it on a pizza is pure brilliance. Another thing about making pizza at home is that if you have family members who like different things, you can make half-and-half pizzas to please every taste....more
