Winter Comfort Food: Baked Rice Pudding

When we were kids, the CFO and I would rejoice if we woke up on a December morning to find that the street had been coated in a blanket of snow while we’d slept. We’d squeal with delight (after the high-fives) knowing that we’d most likely be snowed in for the […]

Easy Breakfast “Sausage” Patties and Biscuits with Smoky Almond Gravy

What? Another breakfast recipe–and so soon, you say? Well, you can never have too much breakfast is what I say. I mean, breakfast really is the best repast of the trio of meals, isn’t it?

Feeling Snacky: Crunchy Stalks and Branches

[Before I delve into today’s snack post, I want to send out a heartfelt “thank you” to each and every one of you who responded to my last post. I was bowled over by the outpouring of kindness and support that you folks displayed. And thanks to all of […]

Lucky Comestible 5 (5): “Ground” Tempeh in a Cilantro Curry Sauce

[I thought it would be fun to run a little series over here at DDD: I’ll profile one one of my favorite foods, or a food that I’ve recently discovered and enjoyed, over several days. For this fifth edition, I’m focusing on cilantro. The series is presented on an occasional (and entirely arbitrary) basis, before […]

Dr. Ornish, You Stole My Heart: Seven Grain Dirty Rice and Beans

[Totally tangential rant: When I woke up this morning, I was sure my eyes were playing tricks on me–it is snowing outside! Snowing. BIG snow. As in, “little white flakes that fly across your field of vision.” As in, “icy and slushy and boots weather.” As in, “everything is coated with […]

A Bowl Lotta Love

[Thanks to everyone who left such sweet comments and encouragement for the hellish week of marking! (And I know I still owe some of you emails. . . coming soon!) Some of you who are students noted that you’d be doing as much work on the other side of the red pen. Whether students, parents, […]

Kitchen Sink Kitchari (an Anti-Candida Stew)

[UPDATE, JUNE 2010: In March, 2009, I began a much more serious (and much more restrictive) candida diet after suffering from myriad candida symptoms for more than 6 months. Finally, with a raging rash taking over my torso, I had to succumb and begin the diet afresh. After 15 months (so far) I’m 90% better, […]

Dolmades, Deconstructed (Mediterranean Rice Casserole)

Back when I was an undergraduate at the University of Windsor, my first boyfriend and I (hiya, Mark! How’s tricks?) would regularly venture across the Ambassador bridge to the Greektown in Detroit (quite literally, a stone’s throw away). That’s where I first tasted saganaki–kefalotyri cheese (like an aristocratic feta) doused in brandy […]
