Gettin' my kale on

I used to think kale's only purpose was to be a garnish on a salad bar.  It fooled me with it's bitter, tough-looking exterior.  That is, until I learned how to cook with it.  Just a little steam and voila!  It transforms into this happy, bright green flower, its tough edges softened, making it much more palatable to enjoy this nutritionally jam-packed superfood.  Plus, it's healthy, delicious and safe for your canine pals as well!  I knew my dogs LOVED it because not only did they gobble it down, they took ...more

A Korean Stew to Soothe Any Cold (Jaden Hair's Spicy Korean Tofu Stew)

At Food Blog Forum Orlando last weekend I won an amazing prize: Jaden Hair‘s The Steamy Kitchen: 101 Asian Recipes Simple Enough for Tonight’s Dinner.

Traditional Sunday dinner? Baked tofu, roasted carrots & leeks + a loaded baked sweet potato

I actually don’t have a traditional Sunday dinner.  I do find that because I cook in bulk on the weekends I have fewer meals and find myself tasting and noshing more. Or going out to eat.  On Sunday evenings, I find myself craving a traditional, sit down dinner.  Or is that supper?  Growing up, Sunday dinner was actually the meal after church.  A meal after 5:00 p.m. was called supper. I can’t recall if it was after moving to Chicago, or later to New York, when I became a breakfast, lunch and dinner gal?...more

To tofu or not to tofu...

Last year, sort of a new year’s resolution, I chose to become a vegetarian. It really wasn’t going to be that hard of a transition since I really like whole grains, beans and most every vegetable. I even like tofu for crying out loud. I figured it was time to give my body a healthy change and see what happened. Since it was winter in Colorado I quickly became an expert soup maker. Black bean stoup, Moroccan chick pea, split pea sans the ham, and lentil. I even skipped the crock pot and made each soup from scratch stove top. Then I would have food for the week....more
