    Broccoli Apple Raisin Slaw – Gluten Free & Vegan

    by Ellen Allard on October 20, 2015 · 1 comment

    I saw this recipe for gluten free, vegan Apple-Broccoli Slaw and wanted to make it immediately. I was already home, wasn’t in the mood to head out to Trader Joe’s. Remembered that I had broccoli in the frig. I cut the stems from the florettes and then put those stems in the food processor, and […]

    Salad dressing can make or break a salad, don’t you agree? I’ve made this salad three times in the last two days. And I’ll probably make it again tomorrow! I LOVE THIS SALAD!!! Actually, it’s the dressing that I’m mad about. In fact, I’m totally not ashamed to tell you that each time, after I […]


    Winter Slaw: New Horizons!

    by Jon on January 21, 2009 · 17 comments

    What do you think of when you think of slaws? Me, I think of coleslaw. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love cabbage coleslaw with a sweet and sour mayonnaise type dressing! But after reading a post at one of my favorite blogs, I decided to expand my slaw horizons. All of a sudden, winter […]

    Salade Nicoise Roasted Brussel Sprouts & Red Onions Silken Tofu Garlic Aioli Last Thursday night, in the northeast, we had a whopper of an ice storm. We were lucky – we only lost power for 24 hours. We have friends who live one mile away who still have no power. Our internet was down until […]

    To Tofu or Not To Tofu

    by Jon on May 4, 2008 · 6 comments

    I want to share a recipe for tofu. If your eyes glaze over at the mere word of the squirmy practically tasteless stuff, please permit me to try and convert you. There was a time, not very long ago, when I wouldn’t go near it with a ten foot pole. I used to buy it […]


    I challenge you to look in your frig, look in your cupboards, your pantry….and come up with a delicious meal without using a recipe – we’ll call it cooking without a net. I’ll be the first to enter the challenge. Here’s my entry. Please note that I use rough estimates for amounts of some of […]


    Asian Fusion Salad

    by Jon on April 15, 2007 · 11 comments

    You know how certain foods seem to appear on the menu of every restaurant you go to? Ahi tuna is one of them. I’m guessing it is related to the popularity of sushi, which seems to have a solid foothold in this country. No, that isn’t ahi tuna in my bowl:). It would’ve been ahi […]


    Twenty Minute Meal

    by Jon on February 28, 2007 · 10 comments

    7:30 PM. Head to the kitchen. Scratch head. Open frig. No idea what to make for dinner. 8 PM. Sit down to a very delicious and satisfying dinner. A perspective and attitude change has gradually taken root in my brain. This has allowed all home-cooked dinners to take place with a giant amount of willingness […]


    Simply Asian

    7 PM. Certain there was nothing to eat in the frig or pantry. Tummy beginning to rumble. Stumble on recipe printed from internet, lying around on the counter in my pantry. Do I have all the ingredients and if not, can I punt? The answer is yes. And I’m glad I did. Oops on the […]
