Baked Cauliflower and Farro

In Washington, DC today it was a beautiful 71 degrees F! in February! We took a scenic 2 hour walk and just before we made it home, my favorite, friendly black and white cat Thomas was sunbathing and taking a nap on a car. I called to him and he came down to greet me…

Butternut Squash and Sweet Potato Coconut Curry

I have been away. I have been occupied and preoccupied and trying to be a better version of me, which is much harder than I thought. I last posted a recipe right before Thanksgiving and now Christmas Eve is upon us. For some reason I could not stop watching the iZombie episodes. Story of a…

Stir-Fried Eggplant, Peppers and Tofu

They look pretty..but… Don’t let the looks deceive you because they…

Panang Curry with Tofu & Vegetables

Farmers Market Thursday

I took advantage of the gorgeous weather today and walked the few blocks from my workplace to the farmers market. There is always a good crowd there drawn to the stalls selling honey, baklava, popsicles, and different kinds of food. I always gravitate towards the fruits and vegetables first and I spotted some good looking…
