Laksa was comfort food for Dizzle returning from travels. Chili and cornbread is today’s project, so I’m hoping to post both those recipes. I’ll probably do a couple cornbread waffles and do muffins with the remainder. We’ll also have a salad with greens from the garden including some spicy purple mustard greens. Rajma is new […]

I think I’m in a food rut, but I did manage to do one new recipe this week. I like to look at the school lunch menu and was interested in Koshari, an Egyptian street food. It was really good, reminded me of mujadara in a way. Roasted roots was potatoes, carrots, sweet potatoes, and […]

Veg quesadillas were made with thin sliced grilled zucchini, red onion, and mild pepper. Served with “refried” pinto beans and salsa. I made a huge pot of the beans, so we are still working on those. It’s been great for quick lunches with tortillas or rice. Spiced vegetables was a recipe I noticed in a […]

Usually I forget about it by the time I’m home, probably because these are mostly super simple recipes. This time I took note! The first from the book is Baker’s Spaghetti. […]

After a week of traveling and eating mostly veg wraps Dizzle was feeling Thai, so we’ve been leaning that way the last few days. African Stew is a slightly spicy tomato based stew with edamame, sweet potato, carrots, and spinach served over couscous. SO GOOD. I don’t think I’ve posted that recipe, so I’ll have […]

Red curry with fresh tomatoes and lots of onion. I finally scored more bean thread noodles, so I’m back on a mission to perfect pad woon sen. Dizzle requested a pasta salad with more fresh tomatoes and summer squashes. I’m in love with the olive focaccia and bean spread. I’ve run out of oregano, so […]

Back to business as usual. I’m in a serious rut with menus. I actually don’t mind that much because we love the meals, but I think next week will be time to roll out some new experiments. In the meantime… Oh how we love curry. We started with yellow last night. I’ll follow up tomorrow […]
