Heirloom Tomato Salsa

Heirloom Tomato Salsa

I got a veritable truckload of giant heirloom tomatoes from my CSA last week… or at least, I was supposed to. I did not take my full share of 18 heirloom at 30 regular tomatoes. One heirloom was so ripe that it actually popped on the way home, spilling tomato guts all down my leg … Continue reading

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

I don’t know how to do Swiss Chard

I don’t know how to do Swiss Chard

A lot’s been going on since the last post–first, life updates! 1. Cat is still lovely, although she’s grumpier now that it’s hot and humid. I am too. 2. Got back together with an old boyfriend, Kevin. Things are going rather well; living in the same place is much better for healthy relationships. 3. Spencer … Continue reading

Rosemary Hummus

Rosemary Hummus

Hello! So… how’s it going? It’s been a while since my last post, but I swear I have legit reasons for not posting. I got a job, moved to Boston, lived with my grandparents for a month (while I love them and appreciate their housing me rent-free, our respective culinary predilections simply don’t line up. … Continue reading

Stuffed Zucchini with Mushrooms

Stuffed Zucchini with Mushrooms

I saw a recipe on Pinterest (one of my new go-to sources for food inspiration) for stuffed zucchini. I’ve dabbled with stuffed vegetable recipes, but usually they tend to feature tomatoes or disgusting red peppers. After positing this observation to my Dukely companion, he mumbles something about asking for stuffed peppers for his special birthday … Continue reading

Lentil Burgers

Lentil Burgers

I’m still trolling the internet for great vegan and vegetarian food blogs–there are actually a surprising amount of decent ones–and am eager to make up for the last homemade veggie burger disaster (really dry crumbly failure black bean burgers, which I didn’t even bother to post). I saw a recipe for lentil burgers on one … Continue reading

Food Pictures

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.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Okay, so technically the recipe is called “Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies,” but I’ve been eating several (read: a handful of) chocolate chips just about every time I open the cabinet all week, so there weren’t many left for this recipe by the time I got around to making it. I had a stressful … Continue reading

Lentil Hummus

I love hummus. One of the hardest things about being in Costa Rica (food-wise, that is) was not having access to my favorite food. I put hummus on most savory things if given the chance, and I love how much you can do with what starts out as pulverized chickpeas, a bit of garlic, and … Continue reading

Chana Masala

Chana Masala

We made chana masala a while ago from the same recipe I used previously (can be found here). I’m not quite sure why it turned out a different color this time, but it was definitely less spicy. Perhaps these two are correlated? Serve with naan or homemade pita (RECIPE IN AN UPCOMING POST, IT IS … Continue reading
