I Learned All About Kohlrabi and Then Cooked It Three Ways

August 3, 2016

Ever had kohlrabi? I came across it at Eastern Market in Detroit, and I was in the mood to try something new, so I bought it. (Full Disclosure: I’m pretty much always in the mood to try something new.)

Halibut with Fig and Caramelized Onion Sauce

July 28, 2016

I haven’t done a recipe post lately, probably because I’ve been traveling, but that changes right now. This recipe involves a fantastic and potentially hard-to-find ingredient: fresh figs.

I love figs, but it’s much more common to find them dried than fresh. That’s because Read the rest of this entry »


Food Photos, Food Photos, Food Photos!

July 14, 2016

I’ve been at my parents’ house in suburban Detroit for over a week now, and it’s been a good time. A hot, humid, good time. Thanks to my relatively new commitment to logging my food on My Fitness Pal (21 days and counting!), I’ve been paying better attention to what I’m eating, and how much. And I’m taking photos of my meals. Wanna see some?

A Fruit and Veggie EMERGENCY!

June 3, 2016

I was figuring out my breakfast the other day when I realized two of the nectarines I had purchased at the farmers market had gone moldy. No bueno.

There was more produce in my fruit bowl and fridge than normal. I was pretty stocked up before my sister and niece came to town, and then I added to my stash at the farmers market. There was fruits and veggies everywhere.

Vegetarian Tortilla Casserole

Shocking Confession Time: Before this weekend, I hadn’t been to the farmers market in a couple years. There was a time, about 5-6 years ago, when I was going every weekend, but my habits changed. This weekend, I was reminded how much I love it. Check out this haul!

I Stuffed a Whole Lotta Peppers, and You Should Too!

April 22, 2016

Here’s an easy, healthy meal idea: Stuffed Peppers. You can stuff a pepper with all sorts of stuff, but I stuffed them with this stuff: more veggies, some lentils, and a few other ingredients. This version happens to be vegan, gluten-free, low-carb, but most of all, delicious.

This recipe calls for 10 bell peppers, which was how many I could fit in my dutch oven. Feel free to halve the recipe, or, I don’t know, double it, if your dutch oven is ginormous. Read the rest of this entry »
