Roasted beet, potato, and goat cheese salad

Roasted beet, potato, and goat cheese salad

If only I’d had some rosemary. Would also be good on a bed of spinach! Chop raw potatoes and beets into bite-sized pieces, toss in olive oil/salt/pepper/rosemary(?) and cook at 425 degrees for 25-35 minutes or until the potatoes are soft. Beets will be a bit firmer. After it’s cooled a bit, sprinkle some goat … Continue reading

Eggplant Rollies

Eggplant Rollies

Last week I made eggplant rollatini (henceforth known as their diminutive, “rollies”) because I’ve been wanting to do something fancy for a while. I don’t know why I didn’t think of it sooner–this dish is super cheap, depending on what you use for the insides, and definitely has that “wow” factor. This recipe could also … Continue reading

Food Pictures

I made this to take to work the other day and it looked rather pretty, so obviously I took a picture of it. Lovely Duke Charles made me pancakes on Sunday, since I had a really really long day at work on Saturday. We also got free blueberries, score.

A Day for Adventure and a Kickass Sandwich

It was the sort of weather in which you’d be comfortable wearing just about anything (except for some ridiculous extreme like my hopefully never-to-be-used-again winter parka thing). 70 degrees and sunny. I’ve come … Continue reading

Fall-themed Quinoa

Fall-themed Quinoa

Quinoa is easy, and it’s healthy, and blah blah blah. It is, however, annoying to clean the little curly grains out of a wire strainer after cooking them. They seem to proliferate when you attempt to corral them into any sort of ordered arrangement. Butternut squash is difficult to cut up into little pieces when … Continue reading

Purple Stir Fry

Purple Stir Fry

I came across purple cauliflower in the grocery store the other day, and of course had to buy it. I’m pretty sure that when those corporate bigwigs and skeezy advertisers come together and scheme up ridiculous gimmicks to make people buy more crap, they have people like me in mind. Maybe even actual, real-for-true me. … Continue reading

Dramatic Falafel

Dramatic Falafel

I’ve always wanted to make falafel the real from-scratch way – the “just add water” variety can sometimes pleasantly surprise me, but for the most part it pales in comparison to the authentic (read: restaurant-purchased) sort. Actually, a lot of restaurants screw it up too, but that’s not the point I’m trying to make. (In … Continue reading
