Revenge of the Carnivores

I find it interesting that some people find vegetarians annoying.  And when it comes to vegans, it’s even worse.  We are pegged as morally superior, self-righteous food snobs who not only harbor deep-seated psychological problems that prevent us from enjoying the finer things in life, but who are also sanctimonious creeps who insist on making our carnivorous brethren feel bad about their dietary choices....more

Roasted Garlic, Acorn Squash & Mushroom Enchiladas

Acorn Squash is my favorite squash. I do enjoy other squashes, but the flavor of acorn squash has a special place in my heart. I can't really pinpoint what my reason os for this love, but you'll just have to make more acorn squash and find out yourself! Maybe it's the seeds ... whenever I make acorn squash, I always rinse, dry and roast the seeds in a little garlic, chili powder and salt. They are amazing! ...more
