Best Caramelized Onions Recipe – Seriously

02.09.13

Predictable? Accurate. Me: You know what would be really good right now? Him: A veggie burger with blue cheese and caramelized onions? My favorite burger is:  blue cheese, caramelized onions, smokey BBQ sauce, lettuce, tomato, on a whole wheat bun, with a veggie burger (Morningstar Farms griller patty is my favorite). And quite often, when I get it in my head that I need to make this vs wandering about town looking for the perfect veggie burger, I misplace my “perfect caramelized onions” recipe and search the Interwebz in despair, before finally finding my trusty recipe that I got from a Read more…

The Hippie Bowl – Kale, Avocado & Tahini Rice Bowl Recipe

07.23.12

I was commenting a few days ago on the difference in how you feel just after eating some thing good vs something good [for you]. Post-cheese plate, I feel like “mmmmmmm… that was good, I feel satisfied and full and now I want some more wine and a nap” vs post-’hippie bowl’, I feel like “mmmmmmm… that was good, I’m so good, I make good choices and I’m healthy. I should go running in a bit and then in the morning I’ll make green drink.” OK, maybe slightly exaggerated, sometimes I have a drink after eating healthy. Balance! My point Read more…

I’ll Stir-Fry You In My Wok

Week 2 of Cook at Home month has me revisiting some old recipes, including Tofu Stirfry Wraps. I originally adapted this recipe to be veg-friendly about five years ago, and as much for my Beastie Boys title tribute, I have yet to buy a wok. My food pictures, however, have improved in the last five years thanks to my kitchen iPhone photography. This recipe is based on an Everyday Food recipe for Chicken Stir-fry wraps, but I use tofu instead. I really like the freshness of this recipe, with the bell pepper, onion and ginger combo giving it a lot Read more…

Squash, Kale, and Chèvre Tacos Recipe

You know when you try something tasty at a new restaurant and say “I’m totally going to try and make these sometime” and then you go home and sometime never arrives? Yes, that’s what I often usually do. So last week, I tried the Squash, Kale, Goat Cheese Tacos at Nearly Normals in Corvallis, and said that exact thing. And thanks to my self-imposed January is Cook at Home, No Restaurants month (except for 1x per week), I decided to actually give these tacos a go. Surprisingly easy to replicate, and so delicious. Squash Kale Chevre Tacos Recipe Serves 2 Read more…

Homemade Chai Tea Latte Recipe

10.25.11

I love the routine of returning to my favorite fall things every October. An afternoon treat that I love to make is homemade chai spice lattes. I originally found a recipe on the The Kitchn for a Pumpkin Spice Latte, but ended up adapting it to what I typically have in my kitchen. So it’s more of a chai spice latte, but still amazing. Chai Tea Latte Recipe Serves 1 Ingredients 1 cup of milk 1 chai tea bag 1/2 to 1 TB of sugar (depending on your sweet tolerance) 1 TB of pure vanilla extract 1/4 tsp of pumpkin Read more…
