  • A Taste of Thailand: Red Curry

    A Taste of Thailand: Red Curry

    I often wonder why Thai cuisine isn’t more popular in the United States. The aroma and taste of Thai curry is really like nothing else, and when prepared with a red curry paste made from a fresh ingredients at home, it’s such a treat! This adaptation is from Mark Reinfeld and Jennifer Murray’s book, The 30…

  • Seitan Wellington

    If you’re in the mood for a tasty, warm, stick-to-your-ribs kind of meal, then look no further. Seitan wellington is a dish inspired by the classic beef wellington. This is a very loosely put together recipe, and I may tighten it up in the future. For now, use your best judgment given the ingredients and…

  • Brussels Sprouts with Dijon Vinaigrette

    Brussels Sprouts with Dijon Vinaigrette

    Fresh Brussels sprouts roasted with a bit of olive oil and lightly seasoned with salt and pepper make an outstanding side dish… they really do. In fact, I could probably eat a big bowl of them and call it a meal. But when you want to take your taste buds to the next level, this elegant…

  • Sweet & Spicy Cranberry Tomato Salsa

    Sweet & Spicy Cranberry Tomato Salsa

    Sweet & spicy cranberry tomato salsa is one of my new favorite things. The sweetness and tartness of the cranberries brings a wonderful twist to spicy and salty salsa.

  • Celery-Onion Stuffing

    Celery-Onion Stuffing

    Stuffing (or dressing) is a common holiday staple. As such, there are countless variations on this traditional dish, yet the stuffing that joins potatoes on my Thanksgiving plate is often a simple one, prepared with an herb blend with sautéed celery and onion. The perfect stuffing not only requires a few key seasonings, but to…

  • Extreme Chocolate Brownie Waffles

    Extreme Chocolate Brownie Waffles

    In this adapted recipe from the Veganomicon, I’ve taken a bit of reserved batter to make a brownie batter sauce to pour over the waffles for that gooey, chocolaty goodness. I did not use soy yogurt from this recipe and opted to use just a few chocolate chips, since the waffles were going to be topped…

Butterflake Rolls, Herb-seasoned Stuffing, and Mashed Potatoes This Thanksgiving, we’re going to put together many of…

  • Roasted Delicata Fries

    Roasted Delicata Fries

    Roasted Delicata Fries have the sweet, soft filling of a sweet potato fry and are really simple to prepare. As you might expect, it’s best to serve them hot, right after coming out of the oven. There’s no need to peel the Delicata squash in this recipe, the skin softens while roasting.

  • Misto Oil Sprayer — Review

    Misto Oil Sprayer — Review

    A few years ago, a package showed up at my door from a thoughtful family member containing a Misto oil sprayer. I briefly pondered if this was on my Amazon wishlist. You know, one of those spur of the moment must-have kitchen items that I had added because how could I possibly continue cooking without…

  • Vegan Butterflake Rolls

    Vegan Butterflake Rolls

    Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and I’ve decided to take a quick break from my mostly healthy recipes and bring you something quite the opposite. I spent the better part of the day perfecting these vegan butterflake rolls, and they came out of the oven more buttery, flaky, and delicious than I could have hoped! Not only…
