Tofu Omelet with Sauteed Apples and Sweet Curry Sauce

Love never ceases to amaze me.

 

In the halcyon days of our relationship, when my HH and I were still in early stages of romantic life, I was sideswiped with a doozy of a diagnosis that caused me to change my diet drastically for what turned out to be quite a long time. […]

Turnip and Pear Soup

How can someone, especially someone who purports to be interested in healthy eating and vegetables, reach the ripe old age of 40-something and still never have tasted a turnip? Shocking, I know; but yes, indeed, that someone is moi.

I blame it all on Modern American Drama. One of the first courses I took […]

Sneaky + Deceptive + Chef = Delicious

I find it fascinating how certain ideas make the rounds in the world of food, blogging or otherwise. I’ve mentioned before about how it galls me that Mrs. Jerry Seinfeld has an over-hyped, over-acclaimed, skyrocketed-to-bestseller-status cookbook in print, all because she thought to add some vegetable purees to existing recipes (Oh.

The Habit of Exercise

I hate winter. For someone who was born and grew up in Montreal, that is a heretical statement. But I’ve never been athletic, I get cold easily, I don’t have the greatest sense of balance (not exactly a plus when you’re navigating ice-laden sidewalks while holding the leash of a frisky, determined dog in each […]

[This week’s Lucky Comestible is sweet potatoes. Here’s the last part in the series.]

Okay, everyone, pour yourselves a glass of wine. Now, raise it with me and yell, “Pancakes! Pancakes!”

Lucky Comestible I(4): Sweet Potato-Cranberry Hash

[This week’s Lucky Comestible is sweet potatoes; here’s part 4 in the series. ]

Finding recipes that use familiar ingredients in new ways is almost as much fun for me as finding completely new ingredients. For instance, I loved it when I started to bake with all kinds of veggies in cakes, cookies, or other […]

Lucky Comestible I(3): Sweet Potato-Cranberry Scones

[This week’s Lucky Comestible is sweet potatoes; here’s part 3 in the series. ]

It’s a snowy, windy, perenially grey landscape here in DDD land. The snow is so fine and dense as it swirls and sweeps by my window that it appears almost like some giant Scotsman is smoking his pipe and blowing smoke […]

Lucky Comestible I(2): Sweet Potato “Fries” Three Ways and Miso Gravy

[This week’s Lucky Comestible is sweet potatoes; here’s part 2 in the series. ]

A few weeks ago, I hosted a potluck for friends and promised to provide all of the recipes from the evening on this blog. And while I’ve done pretty well on most of the others, I hadn’t supplied this one for […]

Lucky Comestible I: Mini Sweet Potato and Chocolate Chip Muffins

[I thought it would be fun to start a little series over here at DDD: the series will profile one one of my favorite foods, or a food that I’ve recently discovered and enjoyed, over several days. For this first entry, I’ll be focusing on Sweet Potatoes. The series will be presented on an occasional […]

Sister Love, Self Love

This morning, as I slipped out of the shower and dashed toward my towel, I was arrested by the flashing image of some alien being–large, bulbous torso with spindly appendages, squishy and amorphous, with a dimpled, pasty-grey hide–as my gaze flitted briefly across the mirrored door of the medicine cabinet. Extraterrestrial close encounters in my […]
