skeppsbrutna: Just finished reading ”Real Food: What to Eat and Why” by Nina Planck. This book have been an eye-opener. I do not agree with everything she says, but all and all it’s just the most sane-minded approach to food I’ve read in quite some time. She’s a great advocate for home grown, local and…
Your Nutritionista: Make These Now: Crispy... →
nutritionista: Okay, I know these aren’t really a SNACK. But I made them on a whim not as part of a meal, so they were sort of a snack for me. But seriously? These potatoes taste like BUTTER. Delicately crispy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside, with that slightly salty, slightly tangy…

nutritionista: I’m in love with this new tool from Real Simple. You just pick a main ingredient (from veggies, beef/pork, pasta/rice/grains/cheese, fish/shellfish, or a surprise), pick a type of dish (5 ingredients or less, soups/salads, no-cook, breakfast for dinner, sandwiches, or a surprise), and then get some recipe options! I picked fish and 5 ingredients or less and got these options: ...

My mom made these cookies for dessert to go with my “Father’s Day Fiesta” dinner. She stuck to the recipe’s advice and splurged on a higher quality Dutch cocoa made with alkali. The result was a decadent chocolate flavor. Since Poppa has been avoiding nuts lately, she omitted them, swapping…
Goose Island Fleur →
This needs to be the next beer I drink! A Belgian style pale ale blended with hibiscus and kombucha tea, Fleur is a beautiful, rose-colored ale with an aroma of strawberries and hibiscus flowers. Her flavor balance starts with a hint of sweet, ripe berry and finishes tart.
You’re not supposed to read labels on vacation, you know!– Man at hotel breakfast, as I was examining the jar of local raspberry jam offered with the toast.

Market haul 5/23
I wish I could be awake and functioning by 8 a.m. more often. The market was gloriously peaceful this morning! I was so excited to get: Asparagus Garlic chives Green onions Pea shoots Mustard greens Bok choy Cilantro Lettuce It’s looking like a lot of stir-fries this week. After a week of adventures with my family, I really need the greens!

urbanfoodie: Filipino home cooks are well aware of the great variation amongst recipes and their loose cultural transmission down the matriarchal family line. Every region has their spin, and every family has their version. You are very unlikely to find a definitive recipe for most dishes. One of the genres of Filipino home cooking that I am currently fascinated with is the [meat] stew in a...
First, the requisite excuse for tumblr absence: I started working in a kindergarten recently and I have been falling asleep (intentional or otherwise) at 9 p.m. But! I have made time for eating and cooking well! This includes visits to: The Butcher Block and Obento-Ya. These were both places I’d heard about months and months ago, and I honestly don’t know why I didn’t visit them...

St. Paul winter market
Dad (to man at Martha’s Joy pickle booth): So, are you Martha’s husband? Man: Yes, I am! Dad: Then why aren’t you Martha’s Joy? Man: (grins) Yeah, I tried that for a while. She wasn’t buying it. Mashdad (my FFIL) is hilarious. So is Martha’s husband. It could have been a little warmer, but I got some really good stuff: beef for stew, Eichten’s tomato...

Vegetarians Who Eat Meat - Newsweek.com →
I think this article needed to be longer, but this is something I have been thinking about a lot lately. I’ve been reflecting a lot on my near-constant vacillation between a veg- and omni- diet, and I think I need to find my middle ground that’s OK for me. And I need to do it soon, because I sometimes get so stressed out about what I am going to/am not going to eat.
I knew Santa wouldn’t forget about me. I got a yogurt maker and a KitchenAid and lots of other awesome foodie gifts! More later.
in an ironic effort to motivate myself to finish my last project, here i am on tumblr. but i wanted to write down all the yummy things i’ll have time to make when i do finish it TONIGHT (yes, tonight and i mean tonight): - seitan - pine nut cookies - butternut squash ravioli - mushroom pesto - bread of all kinds - chocolate crinkles - soy milk - almond milk
