Sourdough bread!

Sourdough bread!

One of my stocking gifts this summer was a small dehydrated container of King Arthur Flour’s original 150 year old sourdough starter. I’d made sourdough starter about this time last year but wasn’t diligent enough to use and maintain it, so eventually it died. I’m going to be better with this one. I’ve already made … Continue reading

Mushroom and Asparagus Risotto

Mushroom and Asparagus Risotto

Spencer and I have decided that we need to cook together more. Translation: he needs to use the kitchen for purposes other than pouring bowls of cereal and cups of coffee. I welcome it; given that I tire easily of eating the same meal for days on end, it’s nice to go through a given … 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

More food photos

I’m hoping to get a fancy camera for my birthday (September 5th!¬†Workin’ on my birthday list right now), so hopefully higher quality food pictures are on the way. In the meantime, please bear with the iPhone photos. A while ago I made potato gnocchi totally from scratch. It was certainly time-consuming, but would’ve been a … 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

Homemade Mint-Pistachio Falafel and Pita

Homemade Mint-Pistachio Falafel and Pita

Last time Duke and I made falafel together we barely knew each other–we started dating two days later. Looking back, “dramatic falafel” was quite an apt title for that post. So much awkwardness and tension. So much fail with that bizarre soggy falafel recipe. This time we made falafel under quite different circumstances–we’ve been dating … 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
