Something’s Fishy: Raw Nori Rolls

In my short stint as a raw foodist (very different from an “in-the-raw” foodist, which, for obvious reasons, I’d never do) I was determined to try out every variation of living foods imaginable. This meant foods I’d otherwise probably never eat, such as raw fennel (basically just don’t like it); raw cashews […]

Caramelized Baby Bok Choy with Cashews and Sesame Seeds

While I am an avid fan of most types of Asian cuisine, I have always been rather underwhelmed by bok choy. Perhaps it’s the similarity in color and texture to celery, another vegetable I dislike; perhaps it’s that I can’t help but note how its bulbous bottom and fan-leaf top bears an […]

Peanut Butter Biscuits

Well, it’s been pretty hectic over here in the DDD household. For the past couple of days, I’ve been slogging away at course prep for a course that deals with diaries and personal journals. (Did you know, for instance, that the first online diary, or weblog –today known simply as […]

Mock Green Papaya Salad

As you may have noticed, I love blogging. When something prevents me from engaging in my (almost) daily trio of cooking, eating, and writing about it, I feel a bit deprived. The strangest triggers will spark a barrage of blogging ideas, and then I’m off.

One of the greatest side effects […]

Carrots Raised in Fear

Whoa. That was some heavy-duty holistic workshop tonight. We covered a huge array of topics, and ended the evening by packing jars with homemade cultured veggies (which, methinks, I will write about in due time, on this very blog). Overall, I really enjoyed the course, especially since we’ll be taking the changes […]

Dog Day: A Study in Contrasts

Tonight I start my course, Total Health, and I can hardly wait. I am truly hoping that a holistic, well-rounded approach to diet and lifestyle will put me back on the right track to improved health. This is one area where the HH has a hard time comprehending the Herculean effort it takes to avoid […]

Frugal Frittata

Whenever we visit my family in Montreal as we did this past weekend, I return to Toronto feeling a little discombobulated. Since I was a callow young’un when I moved away from home (at 17), I never really got to know La Belle Ville that well before I left, so […]

Five Things

Well, the HH and I just returned yesterday from a quick weekend jaunt to Montreal to visit with family and friends (more on that next time), which means I haven’t had time to cook over the past few days. A food post will have to wait, and so. . .

Since I was tagged […]

Soya-Who? Soy-Free Vegan Whipped Cream

True confession (of the culinary kind):

Even though I stopped baking with refined sugar almost a decade ago and never keep it in the house, there are times when I cave. On occasion I’ll purchase a sugar-laden product, either because (a) it’s something new and fabulous and I feel I […]

Spicy Red Pepper Pasta

Sometimes it’s best not to complicate matters.

Even though I am well aware of this principle, I’ve never been the kind of gal who naturally embraces “simple”: no scoop of vanilla ice cream for me when double-fudge-cookie-cream-caramel-swirl exists in the world; no blue wooly socks if I can wear my favorite […]
