Fried Artichokes

One of the best canned vegetables – in my opinion – are artichoke hearts. I used the quartered hearts for Green Pea Penne Pasta, but lately I’ve been buying the whole hearts which come about 5-7 per can. One of these days I’ll be able to fry them as good as E.A.T. by Zabar’s. SHOPPINGContinue reading “Fried Artichokes”

Vegan Chipotle Slaw

Serious coleslaw enthusiast here! I love it creamy, I love it tangy – it’s just a great vessel for raw cabbage that you can spice up in a variety of ways.

World’s Best Charoset

I said it, and I mean it. Last night I’m eating the haroset and thinking “why do I only make this once a year?” Then I’m thinking – “why am I eating this for dinner when I REALLY should be eating this over vanilla ice cream!?” But then I’m googling – Is ice cream kosherContinue reading “World’s Best Charoset”

I’ve never cooked much with bamboo shoots, but when I was looking for canned goods – outside of your usual suspects like corn, chickpeas, baked beans, etc. – I saw these Native Forest Organic Bamboo Shoots and threw a bunch of them in my cart.

Dill-icious Cucumber Salad

I am writing this recipe in honor of my 96-year-old Great Grandmother, “Nanny G,” who always stocks her fridge with old school cucumber salad upon my arrival in Florida. She likes to “zhuzh” up the deli-bought version, but, as always, I was convinced I could make it even better from scratch. That is all I’mContinue reading “Dill-icious Cucumber Salad”

An Ode to Cabbage

This really should have been my inaugural post considering that cabbage, without exaggerating, is one of my favorite foods; but the truth is – it normally doesn’t look this GORGEOUS!!!
