Thanksgiving Dessert: Pumpkin Pies

Nov 29th, 2008 Posted in Dessert | 2 comments »

I love pie and pumpkin pie is by far my favorite pie. One of my favorite things about the holiday season is pumpkin pie. (Even though all ingredients are available all year around, no one has heard my protest to make pumpkin pie a yearly pie.) Delicious pumpkin pie.

Thanksgiving Dinner: Thai Pumpkin Curry

Nov 29th, 2008 Posted in Main Dish | one comment »

I wanted to do something different for Thanksgiving as I’m a vegetarian and not a traditionalist. My love of Thai food and pumpkin knows no bounds. This dish turned out to be very yummy. Though next time, I’ll add some more spices as Jason and I prefer hotter dishes.

The original recipe is from Henry Krauzyk and his blog, World Food at Home.

Continue simmering for 15 to 20 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.

For Jason’s and my two-person Thanksgiving festivities, we started off with a lunch of Asparagus Soup. It’s light and delicious. A recipe I’d made about a year ago from The Greatest Ever Vegetarian Cookbook, edited by Graimes.

Super yummy and you don’t taste the beer. Though you have a lot of beer to drink afterwards. From the NY Times, a recipe for Chocolate Guinness Cake.

Chai Tea

I love Chai Tea, so I decided to try to make my own based on this Chai Tea recipe. I used an English Breakfast tea for my black tea. I think it needed a milder black tea with less flavor, but in general it turned out well. If you want more or less sugar, it’s easier to make with less and then add.

Cauliflower and Potato Curry

Nov 19th, 2008 Posted in Main Dish | one comment »

Jason and I both love Indian food, so I’ve made it a goal to better learn how to cook it. I tried a recipe for Cauliflower, Potato, and Pea Curry, minus the peas because I’m allergic to them.

Overall, we enjoyed it, but thought it could be a little spicier. The recipe is relatively simple and quick to make. Serve with rice.

This just is far too entertaining. Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart on her show making mash potatoes.

Spinach Enchiladas

Nov 16th, 2008 Posted in Main Dish | no comment »

I’m a big fan of Enchiladas. I grew up on my mom’s enchiladas, but now that I’m a vegetarian, I have to search for non-meat alternatives. I even held an enchilada off with her before her wedding this summer: my eggplant almond ones vs. her chicken ones. But people were scared of eggplant. Yes, it’s a purple vegetable, people, a delicious purple vegetable.

And in trying something different, I made this spinach enchilada, based on this recipe. While the original recipe was low-fat, I added a bunch of cheese and made it bad for you. But delicious. It was, however, really runny and messy to eat. When re-heating, I added rice to soak up some of the juices.

French Fries

I bought a French Fry maker kit. (Yes, I make French Fries, not Freedom Fries.) It works to a varying degree, but I still got delicious fries out the gig. In fact, I should actually call this Cooking with Jason as I was cooking our actual dinner while he was frying fries. Delicious!

French Fries are delicious

Tofu Chicken and Dumplings

Nov 16th, 2008 Posted in Main Dish | 2 comments »

Delicious. This was so delicious. It takes longer than I would like, so it’s not going to be a week day dish by any means.

Tofu Dumplings

My tofu chicken cooking came from some suggestions how to cook chicken in Cooking for Dummies and the general chicken and dumplings recipe originally came from ‘Chicken’ and Dumplings at VegCooking.
