German Lentil Soup

  I lived in Portland, Oregon for 12 years growing up and one of my favorite places was The Rheinlander.  Our family would often do their Sunday Brunch, which is still the best brunch I’ve ever had. The restaurant also has an amazing cheese fondue that was reason number one to go there.  With so […]

#SundaySupper Beer-Braised Beef

Here in California with temperatures falling into the upper 70s it is getting that time of year for a hearty stew or soup. Alright, so it doesn’t feel like the time of year for a stew. Fortunately, it doesn’t really matter what the temperature is outside. I always enjoy a rich, chunky stew.  The melding […]

Root Vegetables and Lentils in Mustard Sauce

This is an adaptation of a recipe I posted before: Lentils with Turnip, Leeks and Carrots. I made a few edits since I’m still doing my series on “Hotel Home Cooking.” Much of the original recipe was followed; however, I lacked cloves and red wine vinegar plus I had some yellow zucchini that I added […]

Moroccan Couscous with Saffron

I’m not much of a celebrity follower.  Though I have come to enjoy one celebrity’s blog covering some great vegetarian food choices and recipes. Actress Alicia Silverston is anything but Clueless when it comes to finding good things to eat. This recipe is a simple roasted vegetable medley with butternut squash, zucchini, carrots and onions […]

Getting Familiar with The Post Punk Kitchen’s Veganomicon

Last Christmas I asked for some new cookbooks to add to my bookshelf.  With the change to making vegetarian/vegan 4 times each week, I thought some updated cookbooks in my meat-focused cookbook collection would be welcome. One book that kept coming up is Veganomicon many reviews felt it is the essential vegan cookbook on the mark […]

Crock Pot: Pot Roast

We had a lot of running around to do Saturday after I spent most of the week away from home at the Consumer Electronics Show. While I enjoy shows like CES and trying some new places, including a gas station taco shop in Vegas, I couldn’t wait to get home and back to cooking my […]

Mission Accomplished: Best Beef Stew Ever.

I love stew.  With winter finally settling in here in Dallas, yes I can hear the moaning from all my friends in Detroit, it’s the right time to start cooking stew.  I also opened up one of my Christmas gifts early since we were not going to drive to Michigan with it for the holidays […]

Moroccan Quinoa Pilaf

This week I decided to cook from some other food bloggers. Last night I went with a quinoa recipe from The Whole Life Nutrition Kitchen blog. I made a few minor changes due to Whole Foods being out of Kale last Sunday. We had picked up some locally grown Swiss Chard at a market in […]

Jamaican Chicken Curry

I can hardly believe it’s been two months since my last post. It must be a busy summer. Fortunately, this week I decided to catch-up on some cooking magazine reading and ventured into Martha’s Food magazine that has an excellent stew recipe in its May 2009 issue. The following recipe has some “kick, but just […]

Country Cider Hot-Pot

Sunday night was a birthday party for my twin boys. We were having some family over so I decided to try something new and something that could just sit in an oven for a hour and not need a lot of attention. The original recipe from a cookbook I own called for rabbit for this […]
