Easy Weeknight Indian Food

I try not to buy a lot of pre-made foods, but two items are the exception: pasta sauce and curry sauce. Although I love the homemade versions of both, keeping the store-bought versions on hand make it more likely that I will actually cook something for dinner, rather than calling the local Thai restaurant. I’ve […]

My Favorite Weeknight Meal

My favorite weeknight meal is dal and samosas.  I know this sounds really complicated, and for a second there, you were probably really impressed with me.  However, I am going to let you in on exactly how easy this is. Step 1: Start Cooking Some Rice Before I do anything else, I put a cup of brown […]

Updated Oatmeal

Spaghetti Squash and “Sausage”

Last year, I discovered spaghetti squash, and am so glad it did.  This fall, on a busy and cold night, I created this simple recipe to use a squash that our neighbors had kindly brought over.  I decided to combine the squash with vegan sausage.  Since vegan sausage is typically made from wheat gluten, it […]

Southern Comfort

Last year, I was out gardening in my front yard when a woman rode by on her bike and stopped to admire my collard greens.  “How do you cook them?” she asked. “Oh, I just sauté them in some oil,” I replied. “You don’t use bacon?” she said. “No – no bacon,” I said, then found myself […]
