Gingered Potatoes with Browned Onions and Tomatoes

I get a lot of questions about the Candida Diet (or Anti-Candida Diet–ACD, as I call it). Most of the time, people either want to know what it is I ate and/or eat now (I outlined the different stages of my diet, and all the foods I ate, on the FAQ […]

Kitchen Classics: Shepherd’s Pie

Some things just never change. As a result, there are certain aspects of our lives upon which we all tend to rely.

For instance, you expect that Wile E. Coyote will tumble down the mountainside (an anvil in hot pursuit), only to re-emerge the following week without so much as a […]

Potato Boats with “Sour Cream” and Herbs

The expression, “it’s complicated” is often enough to make the blood drain from my face and my forehead break out in a cold sweat.

For example:

Scene One: Ricki and her then-boyfriend, Rocker Guy (he of the black leather pants) at Rocker Guy’s apartment, shortly after Ricki stumbles upon RG […]

Kitchen Classics: Chickpea, Tomato and Potato Stew for Winter’s Reprise

What?? It’s winter?

Again??

Okay, Mother Nature, this is really getting old. I mean, we’ve been tortured by suffering with enduring tolerating winter since October 21, 2010 (should I feel guilty that that’s my birthday?). Time for some warmer temps, dry streets, green buds poking their happy noses out of […]

First, and most importantly: Happy 2009, everyone! Thank you all so much for your wonderful comments and good wishes for the new year. I can’t even begin to express how much I appreciate them all and how much blogging has brought into my life. But by far, […]

Last Minute Thanksgiving Ideas

I had intended a lovely post today, in honor of the upcoming Thanksgiving long weekend to the south of us. But time constraints (read: massive, unwieldly pile of essays and assignments to mark) have prevented me from following through. So I’ll just have to wait till the next batch of holidays in December to post […]

Other People’s Munchies. . . and Please Share Your Own

Odd. . . my Google Reader seemed to be filling up at an alarming rate, sort of like the rising waterline in The Poseidon Adventure. Then I remembered: Not only is October the official World Vegetarian Month, it’s also the Vegan MOFO (Month of Food)! This is the 31-day period in which vegan food bloggers […]

You Say Potato Curry, I Say Aloo Masala

In my imagination, I’d love to live on a farm. I say “in my imagination” because, in my reality, I’m actually the farthest thing from a farm type of gal (“What the-? What do you mean, 5:15 is the normal time for the rooster to crow?!!” OR, “What do you mean, it’s […]

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 […]
