Pumpkin Coconut Soup

This was an experiment that worked out. Real, REAL good. I needed to use up some pumpkin puree after shooting my homemade pumpkin puree video. I remembered a recipe I made several years ago, a butternut squash and shrimp soup with a coconut milk base, that was AB FAB. And you know, pumpkin is so similar […]

Roasted Asparagus with Chili Oil and Lemon

Roasted Asparagus Video (scroll down for recipe) Roasting, if you are unawares, is most likely the best thing you can do to any vegetable. Asparagus takes particularly well to this treatment. Once roasted, it becomes sweet and juicy with a good, toothsome texture. I’m not really sure what toothsome means, but it makes me think […]

Carrots and Chickpeas

Suddenly I realized my Greek-style meatballs were morphing into Middle-Eastern-style meatballs and then my kale turned kind of Italian-style when I wasn’t looking and then I decided I wanted a carby-side dish and I had some carrots […]

Halloween Pumpkin Slaughter!!! Roasted Pumpkin Seeds!

I abhor food waste. I roll my eyes every time I see a display of those knobby, gnarly, little decorative gourds and dried miniature corn cobs for sale anywhere. The U.S. is probably the only country that grows food purely for decoration. Not to be a downer on the fall holiday decorating season, but it […]

Sweet Potato Breakfast Tacos

There’s something about the entrepreneurship behind them, the ingenuity in their design, the fact that you can DRIVE them, and the hot and sweaty working conditions that just drive me WILD. Usually the food’s pretty good, […]
