Stuffed Artichokes

Stuffed Artichokes

My friend Betty Cahill writes the blog “Delishy Town”, and while it’s not entirely vegan, it’s very vegan friendly.  A while back Betty made some amazing looking stuffed artichokes, and I made a mental note that I’d have to try a version of them.  I used her recipe as a guide but wasn’t in the [...]

Tomato Basil Bruschetta

Tomato Basil Bruschetta

Tomato Bruschetta is one of my favorite things to make (and eat), and I realized that despite the fact that I make this multiple times every summer, I’d never actually done a post on it. You’ll want to save this for when tomatoes are in season, and you can use whatever kinds you like best. [...]

Simple Mushroom Bruschetta

Simple Mushroom Bruschetta

Last week I came down with some sort of terrible virus and totally lost my appetite.  I couldn’t even watch commercials for food, and the thought of eating anything was even worse.  It was a special sort of hell for me. But I’m so glad to say that I’m feeling MUCH better, and am actually [...]

Ceci with Garlic and Sage

Ceci with Garlic and Sage

I’ve made these Ceci (Chickpeas) with Garlic and Sage a couple times now, and I think I’m finally getting the hang of this Michael Chiarello recipe.  The first time I made these I followed the recipe exactly, but I found my skillet very crowded and they just didn’t crisp up as much as I would [...]

Mini Radish Tartine

Mini Radish Tartine

With Thanksgiving just a few days away, I thought I’d feature recipes this week that would work for the holiday, starting with these incredibly simple mini radish tartines. Before designing a menu for afternoon tea, I’d never had a radish sandwich before.  I knew that radishes served with butter were a classic french treat, and [...]

Marinated Cheeze

Marinated Cheeze

Years ago, a friend of mine hosted a Fourth of July bbq and served this marinated cheese dish.  The flavors were totally addictive, and once I went vegan I always dreamt about making this dish with vegan cheeses.  I finally got around to doing just that, and I don’t have much more to say apart [...]

Garden Herb Spread

Garden Herb Spread

I hate it when I make a recipe that leaves leftover tofu, because I always end up forgetting about it and then find it when cleaning the fridge days (or weeks) later.  Into the trash it goes, and I’m left feeling super guilty that I wasted it.  It seems to be a cycle that never [...]

“An Eggplant Cajun”

“An Eggplant Cajun”

Here it is – the last of the posts from our Oscar Party, and my favorite… “An Eggplant Cajun” for the film “An Education”.  For some reason we didn’t have any trouble with this title, and once we thought of the name Ryan found this recipe online. While it was super easy to veganize, I [...]

Fried “Chicken” Fingers

Fried “Chicken” Fingers

Just looking at this photo makes my mouth water.  I really, really, really used to love fried chicken.  Love it like it was actually my favorite food kind of love.  Throw in some mashed potatoes and biscuits and I was in heaven. Fried chicken was definitely one of the hardest foods for me to give [...]

Nuts!

Nuts!

Yes, I am yelling the word “nuts.”  This is a recipe that I saw Nigella Lawson make on one of her shows for the Union Square Cafe’s bar nuts.  I make these for parties all the time, and everyone loves them.  The only problem is that I can’t stop eating them before people arrive!  They’re [...]
