Zack came up with this soup one evening during a “let’s clean out the fridge to make dinner” night.  This soup is very flavorful, and easy to make. Ingredients: 1 tbsp olive or vegetable oil 1/2 tsp black pepper pinch of red chili flakes 4 carrots cut in 1/2″ cubes 2 leeks sliced thinly 1 […]

Just updated this one. I added the pic plus the wonton wrappers. I made this last night with Seitan. It was a great veg meal. The dressing has that salty, sweet, sour flavor that makes you want to inhale it! Dressing: 6 Tbs. hoisin sauce ¼ cup natural peanut butter 4 tsp brown sugar 1 […]

I made this salad for a couple friends this week. I was looking for something fresh and light…something perfect for a warm summer day. The great thing about this recipe is that it allows you to make everything from scratch (roasting the chicken and bell peppers) or if you are tight on time, you can […]

We had a week of Martha at our house last week. This was one of our vegetarian dinners and it was tasty – filling but not too heavy. Next time we’re going to melt mozzarella over the top! Ingredients: 2 Tbs olive oil 2 Tbs red wine vinegar 1 large eggplant, cut lengthwise into 1/4″ […]

With a title like “Pecan Balls” most people think this is a recipe for a sweet treat, and it is…but not in the way you are thinking. These Pecan Balls are a vegetarian alternative for meat balls…the ingredients may seem odd…but trust me on this one. I had my doubts the first time my friend […]

This is so damn good it should be against the law. Rick had to physically remove it from the table so he would stop eating it. I call it macaroni and cheese for adults. It is great with a fresh green salad with lemony vinaigrette – to cut the richness of the sauce. This would […]

I first had this years ago when my college roomate (and good friend) Amy made it for us. It was a hit then…and in the Fall, I get a craving for this delcious sauce and creamy polenta. This recipe was handed down to her from her grandma, Ida Viviani. Chicken and Sauce Ingredients: 12 pieces […]

This chicken is moist, flavorful, and roasted to perfection. We tossed some new potatoes and onion in some olive oil, salt and pepper and added it to the roasting pan. Add a salad and it was a delicious dinner. The vinaigrette could be used as a salad dressing, as well as a dipping sauce for […]

Ingredients: 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 4 cups water 1 1/3 cups yellow cornmeal 1 1/4 teaspoons salt 1/2 cup slivered fresh basil leaves 2 cups halved cherry tomatoes 2 garlic cloves, minced 1 cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese (about 4 ounces) 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (about 4 ounces) 1/2 cup tosted pine nuts (optional) […]

We found this recipe in cooking light. The only reason it’s light in the magazine is that they skimp on the yummy sauce! So, here’s our version. Same amount of sauce, half the pasta! It’s quite delicious and definitely waaaay less fat than a creamy pasta dish at a restaurant. Ingredients: 1/2 lb. uncooked linguine […]
