Turnip is another new vegetable to me. I have talked before about how, when I was growing up, my family only ate lettuce, carrots, tomatoes and peas so I won’t bore you with that again but suffice it to say I am trying to cook my way through all the vegetables I have never eaten […]

I made it to the first summer farmers market of the year this past Saturday. It was a gong show, but I did manage to pickup (i.e. inhale) a cookie, some sunchokes and some kale. When I saw the sunchokes, also known as Jerusalem Artichokes, I had to get them since I have been meaning […]

The salty feta is such a great contrast to the sweetness of the shrimp in this tomato based pasta recipe.

I have been hearing amazing things about a recipe for Supercharge Me Cookies from Eat Drink Live & Be Vegan. Unfortunately I couldn’t find the recipe anywhere on the web and the book is currently on hold at the library. So, I set out to make my own version. I really liked the idea of […]
