Maple Whole Wheat Bread

Maple Whole Wheat Bread

I’m just a little bit in love with baking fresh bread. This Maple Whole Wheat Bread is certainly a hearty bread. The bit of maple syrup gives it a surprisingly delightful sweetness, but not overwhelming, which means this is still a great bread for making sandwiches with it.

Recipe for Stuffed Artichokes

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.

Stuffed Fried Bread Dough is delicious. It’s really up to you what you stuff it with. I’ve done it with mozzarella, a little basil, tomatoes, and spinach. Jason added some pepperoni to his own. I’m sure you could make some sweet ones too.

Parmesan Pull-Apart Rolls

Jun 14th, 2009 Posted in Bread, Side Dish | no comment »

I really want to find a good dinner roll. This one looks beautiful. However, I found it to be way too salty. If I made it again, I’d cut the salt and perhaps look into a higher quality Parmesan cheese.

Lentil Soup

Jun 11th, 2009 Posted in Soup | no comment »

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.

Golden Basmati Rice

I highly recommend a rice cooker; I love mine. Plus, it makes this really easy to make. You basically throw it all in the cooker. This recipe is originally from the Moosewood Restaurant Low-Fat Favorites.

Homemade Naan

May 14th, 2009 Posted in Bread | 6 comments »

I love naan, but I never thought I’d be able to make it at home. Naan is traditionally made in a clay oven called a tandor, which would never fit in my condo’s kitchen. Plus, it would be a rather expensive investment.

Then I saw this recipe by Chef Henry. Instead of a tandor oven, it uses a pizza stone, and a pizza stone fits much better with both my kitchen and my wallet. Plus, this recipe is really tasty too.

French Onion Soup

Dec 24th, 2008 Posted in Main Dish, Soup | no comment »

When I went to France 10 years ago, I sat in a little restaurant on top of a hill and had French Onion Soup to die for. Now, 16-year-old me wasn’t really into food. In fact, I had so many new-to-me food allergies that I didn’t know what to do and I wasn’t used to eating anything that wasn’t frozen and bought at Costco. But ever since then, I’ve been a fan of French Onion Soup.

This recipe is original from Cookography where they call it the Best French Onion Soup Ever, and while I still think that restaurant beat this (but that could be me romanticizing my Europe trip), I do think this is damn good soup. Jason thought it was little labor intensive — I made him stir a lot –, but from what I’ve read about French Onion Soup, this recipe is actually an easier one to make. Though Jason did admit that delicious soup was worth that little extra labor every once-in-a-while.

Tofu Pad Thai

Dec 22nd, 2008 Posted in Main Dish | 2 comments »

This was a failed experience of sorts. I’ve tried in the past to make Pad Thai, and there was just something missing. So when my friend B tried the following recipe with a good review, I figured that I try it myself. Part of the problem, for me, was the fish oil. I figured that maybe fish oil was as essential to Pad Thai as beef broth is to French Onion Soup. Instead, I just made myself sick from smelling fish oil and remembering every reason why I don’t eat fish and protest fellow “vegetarians” who do.

Jason, being the omnivore in the house, did like this recipe. Which is good as he had to finish cooking it and eat it.

Cream of Tomato Soup

Dec 5th, 2008 Posted in Soup | no comment »

I love a good bowl of tomato soup with an accompanying grilled cheese sandwich. It’s something I grew up on. It reminds me of colder fall and winter weekends where my mom and I had been outside all day and needed something quick, hearty, and warm.

The original recipe comes from the Skinny Chef. Hers was a little more low-fat than mine and contained chicken.

This soup certain beats anything out of a can. (Sorry, mom.)
