Like many great things in life, this recipe happened by accident. Well, at least the final product was an accident, as I had originally intended these to be a homemade answer to my Hilary’s Adzuki Bean Burger obsession (am I alone here?). While I wanted to mimic the original burger as much as possible, I also [...]
Recently I noticed that Indian recipes are curiously absent from this sight. I say “curiously” because, as my husband will attest, we are big Indian food fans around here. When I met Gennaro, he didn’t think he liked Indian food. The few times we brought him out to try it, we paraded the naan breads and [...]
When I began transitioning to a vegan diet — almost a year ago now — I knew there would be moments of concession. I was always one of those people who said things like “I could easily go vegan if I had to…except for…” and that’s where I decided it didn’t matter, because no one’s putting a [...]
When my friend Krystal told me she was excited to eat sweet potatoes over the holiday because they’re “not something (she) eats normally,” I knew I had to remedy this situation. Don’t normally eat sweet potatoes? I couldn’t think of a shopping trip where I hadn’t brought at least a pound of them home from the market, mostly to make my favorite dish: baked sweet [...]
Anyone who’s gone vegan, sugar-free or gluten-free knows that often in our attempts at recreating old favorites to fit our dietary restrictions, we end up creating a dish that’s inherently much healthier as well.
This is not one of those dishes.
I’m sorry to say, but there comes a point in ones life where health concerns must [...]
The Thanksgiving-inspired recipes continue here, as I present you with my first attempt at a vegan gravy. This one couldn’t be easier, and has the added — and interesting — flavor of miso for a unique touch.
Please forgive my short post. I have been yawning for the last few hours, and am ready to call it [...]
Over the last 3 1/2 years I’ve visited the Union Square Greenmarket probably hundreds of times, which means I’ve passed a certain artist on my way to the market almost as often. This artist is one among many stationed in Union Square, but I’ve always been especially drawn to his colorful, vibrant prints. To my mind, there are [...]
So, I don’t know what inspired me to make latkes, of all things, with the 18 million pounds of potatoes I’ve stocked up in my quest to recreate all of my favorite (and, oh, there were many) potato dishes in Spain. Latkes were certainly not on that list. Nor do I have any particular story to [...]
My return to New York seems to have been plagued by a rough patch in the recipe department. While the gazpacho was a surprise first-time success and the grilled plums an easy, satisfying treat, the rest of our meals have been marked by a litany of culinary mistakes. Not mistakes of the “not-what-I-intended-but-maybe-even-better” kind, but rather [...]
With a little over two weeks left until the “big exam,” I’m the girl I never thought I could be. I’m buying jarred pasta sauce, pre-cooked rice from prepared foods sections, and, yes, even frozen meals. All I can say is, thank goodness for Amy’s Organics. That said, being that I still have another 1/2 week [...]
