Carrot Cake

Carrot Cake

Carrot Cake was a tradition in my family. We always made it for my father’s birthday. My father doesn’t care for crowds, and I never remember going out for his birthday celebrations. Once, we threw him a party when he turned 40. But otherwise, his birthdays were a stay at home affair.

My mother would also make this carrot cake. Which was odd given on everyone else’s birthdays, we ate a lot of store-bought cakes (especially ice cream cakes) or my maternal grandma, the family cake baker and decorator, would make them.

Food processors are genius when making this cake. I have memories of using a cheese grater to grate carrots. Now, I just throw all those carrots in my food processor, and wham, they’re shredded.

This cake stood the test of time with my taste buds. It’s delicious.

Stuffed Artichokes

Stuffed artichokes are tasty. However, they are moderately annoying to clean out to stuff, especially compared to how easy the rest of this recipe is. One artichoke is filling for two people. Of course, that depends on how many germs you’re willing to share because I wouldn’t try to cut them in half.

Lentil Soup

As a vegetarian, lentils are one of my favorite non-soy sources of protein. They are incredibly flexible; however, the staples, like this Lentil Soup, are still wonderful classics. Almost every culture has a version of lentil soup. Serve it up with a good piece of bread and you’ve got a good meal.

Savory Indian Sweet Potatoes

I love this dish because it’s both sweet and spicy at the same time. Plus, really easy to make. Did I mention, delicious? The texture is really similar to mash potatoes, but so much better.

Spicy Parmesan Green Beans, Mushrooms, and Kale

Dec 9th, 2008 Posted in Main Dish, Side Dish | 2 comments »

In winter where I live, fresh vegetables are rather limited without making them travel thousands of miles. So it’s always nice to find a winter recipe with fresh, seasonal (or anytime) vegetables. Plus, it has a lovely, spicy flare.

This recipe yields 6 to 8 servings, and if I make it again, I’ll cut back on the size since it’s just me and Jason at my house.

The original recipe is from the Foodnetwork’s Giada De Laurentiis

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.
