Blogging seems so insignificant when there are bigger things happening in our nation right now. Our thoughts are with all of the families who were in the path of the category EF4 tornado that touched down in Oklahoma. They’ve lost their homes, their cars, their way of life, and in many cases, their loved ones. Sometimes [...]
Lately I have found myself eating more and more vegan and vegetarian meals. I was a vegetarian for many years (many years ago now) but I found that my lifestyle had changed and I incorporated more and more meat back into my diet. Nowadays, there are many fantastic meat substitutes available. I can cope with [...]
Hello friends! It’s been too long. Now that spring has arrived in full swing here, I have been a busy bee. It’s like everyone has woken up from winter’s slumber. Loads of visitors, grill outs, parties… it’s almost as if summer has already arrived. I love this time of year! Okay, back to these absolutely [...]
Corned beef doesn’t have to only be a St. Patty’s Day thing. I love corned beef for breakfast any time of year. I’m a fan of homemade corned beef hashes that feature large chunks of corned beef that you can see (unlike that ‘dog-food’ looking stuff that you get out of a can). I used [...]
Okay, it’s not the prettiest sandwich you’ll ever see, but as I like to say… If it’s messy, it has to be delicious! This sandwich is oozing with basil tomato sauce and melty mozzarella. You may need some napkins for this one, if you can put it down. I crisped up the tofu in the [...]
I really love crispy tofu but I don’t like deep-frying it all of the time. It kind of takes the healthy out of tofu. I tried this crispy baked tofu recipe from Chow Vegan and absolutely loved it. For me, my tofu didn’t crisp up as much as it should have, so I raised the temperature [...]
¡Hola amigos! Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner. I’m a fan of Mexican food and margaritas so I am a fan of this holiday. Now, I’ve only eaten authentic Mexican food once, from Tijuana, so I can’t really speak to true authenticity here. I hear that Mexican food differs throughout all areas of [...]
You’ve seen tofu at restaurants. You may have already eaten tofu yourself. Tofu is just about everywhere these days. Tofu is a soy product that is one of the easiest and healthiest food to cook. It’s packed with protein and has such a mild flavor that you can influence it’s flavor profile however you want. [...]

There is a deli just outside of Denver that Mister and I absolutely love to eat at when we’re in the area. They are as Jewish as a Jewish deli can get. They have matzo ball soup, challah bread, lox, latkes, knish, pastrami … you name it and they have it. This particular deli also [...]
Lettuce wraps are a favorite appetizer of many at restaurants. They are a light and refreshing way to enjoy a variety of fillings. I just can’t help but wrap my fingers around them! I wanted to do something with ground turkey because of the lighter fat content, but I didn’t want to sacrifice any flavor. [...]
This is my new favorite, quick and easy snack or side dish. This couscous salad is packed with bright flavors from the lemon, basil and fresh vegetables. It’s also light and refreshing, perfect for these warm days ahead of us. Plus it keeps for awhile, so you can prepare it ahead of time for parties. [...]
