Easy Veggie Chili

Easy Veggie Chili

I got some requests for this recipe, so here goes!  I have made quite a few chili recipes (like this one) which are all good in their own right, but sometimes I just like to cook on the fly.  June gloom found us yesterday here in California, so chili just sounded so good.  And it’s … Continue reading

The Tomato Sandwich

The Tomato Sandwich

Sunday’s post about childhood food memories really left me craving a tomato sandwich.  Like the kind my neighbor Betty used to make.  It really is so simple yet so amazing.  Only three humble ingredients, well plus salt and pepper.  If you add anything more, well I don’t consider that to be a true tomato sandwich.  … Continue reading

Fruit Pizza and Food Childhood Memories

Fruit Pizza and Food Childhood Memories

Tomato, Spinach and White Bean Sauté

Tomato, Spinach and White Bean Sauté

When I first made this dish, I called it “Fancy Beans” but then upon further recollection I realized that didn’t really describe the dish at all.  It’s kind of like when you are trying to buy gum and come across that random Bubblicious flavor called “Radical Red” which doesn’t describe the actual flavor whatsoever.  Hence … Continue reading

Spinach Chimichurri

Spinach Chimichurri

The other day, I finally put my food processor to good use making pesto and it got me thinking about herbs.  More like what other kinds of delicious green sauces can I make with herbs?  Chimichurri instantly came to mind.  Chimichurri is an Argentinian sauce typically made with parsley, garlic, vinegar, olive oil and oregano. … Continue reading
