Dinner 11/10 Collard Greens with Coconut Curry Sauce Tea-Smoked Tofu Squares Deep-Fried Rice Balls Braised Bok Choy A riff on a house favorite recipe, putting all the elements in a bowl instead of our usual method of plating...

Dinner 10/27 Pierogi A little sneak peak for this year's festivities -- Pierogies! There are two different types one filled with cabbage, the other with potato and mushroom. Much like the Ravioli, we made, froze and vacuum-sealed about 240, so that should last a couple of days... maybe. ;)

Dessert 10/16Apple Fritters We stumbled across this recipe on TV the other day and adapted with usual substitutes (Einkorn flour, 1 tbs. ground flax & 2 tbs. water for the 2 eggs & Earth Balance) and we just dusted them with powdered sugar instead of making the glaze because we wanted to eat them ASAP. ;)

Dinner 09/30 Lobster Mushroom Bisque We have officially moved into soup weather. We scored some lobster mushrooms from our local grocery store this week, so we decided to bring back our bisque recipe from 2008. Two changes: we used shiitake mushroom stock in place of the water and white wine in place of the cognac (we're out). Plus we added fried leek rings as a garnish.
Lunch 09/29 Tomato Soup Somewhere it's 1973, and a Gilligan's Island rerun is showing. In the center of the soup is some of the "Artisan Vegan Cheese" Chevre we made the other day. Along the back is a cheese crisp made from Daiya Cheddar -- sprinkled in a cast-iron pan until melted, removed to a cooling rack for a few minutes until hardened. Show More Summary

Dinner 09/28 Chevre & Brie Yes, we gave in to peer pressure ;) Thankfully our pantry was already loaded with agar agar and xanthan gum and we always have some rejuvelac on hand -- so we were ready to go. We started by making the Chevre...Show More Summary
Dinner 09/28 Shawarma "Have you ever tried shawarma? I don't know what it is, but I wanna try it." It was our daughter's birthday, the Avengers had just come out on DVD and five of her friends were coming over for dinner. Shawarma seemed like the only logical choice. Show More Summary
Dinner 09/24 Ratatouille with Sausages and Leeks over Pasta Ratatouille (recipe) again, with braised leeks (recipe) and the addition of (gluten-free) sausages and pasta in one tasty bowl.
Dinner 09/20 Rajas We made soft tacos again and one of the items we made was rajas (recipe) -- a slow cooked combination of red bell, poblano and cubanelle peppers, along with red onions, garlic and Mexican oregano. I just liked the close-up of this poblano pepper. ;)
Dessert 9/19 Peach Crumble Tart Tonight's dessert is a recipe that we stumbled across from the current issue of Taste of Home, that called for blueberries (which we didn't have) so we adapted the hell out of it. ;) Peach Crumble Tart...Show More Summary
