Spicy Paprika Gravy and Cheesey Biscuits

Saturday, January 7th, 2006

I bought several members of my family meat baskets from Salumi as Christmas presents. Michelle and I sampled Salumi’s mole salami at the Eugene Slow Food Chocolate tasting, which I just hate to go on and on about- but that simple log of meat just blew my taste buds away. The Holiday package I ordered [...]

A Taste of Fall: Cheesey Beet Shells

Thursday, October 20th, 2005

I had the pleasure of dining with Michelle of the accidental scientist on Tuesday, and find my head still reeling over there being another blogging foodie in Eugene! It’s about time! It’s so funny that we’re practically next door work neighbors too. We walked over to Cafe Marche at the Art Museum, and treated oursleves [...]

Vegan Crispy Potato Cakes with Beet Salad

Tuesday, October 4th, 2005

The main course of my IMBB 19 meal. This dish was largely inspired by an advertisement I’ve been pining over the last several months for the Bermuda Culinary Festival in October. This ad features a thick fried cake atop a salad of shredded carrots and topped with baby greens; Mmmm more fried goodness. I dressed [...]

End of the Month Leftovers: Tilapia Stock Risotto

Monday, August 29th, 2005

The end of the month is nearing, which often means that the paycheck has gone beyond stretched tight. We like to frequently eat out at asian restaurants, with our neighborhood Saigan Kitchen being my favorite. One way we like to extend our leftovers at home is by adding more stock to our curries or stirfries, [...]

Steamed About Clams

Monday, August 22nd, 2005

It’s a sad thing when bad clams happen to good people- to good fish mongers to be more specific. Sweets and I went to our nearby fish mongers for halibut to curry up, and wound up with steamer clams for dinner too. I unfortunatley ignored my spidey sense as we had our clams fetched for [...]

Bagel Dogs

Friday, August 19th, 2005

I did a fair amount of babysitting growing up. My two younger brothers are 10 and 8 years younger than me, so they gave me good training for keeping my ground with little boys. Once the word got out that I wasn’t afraid of babysitting little boys, even multiples of them, I found myself with [...]

Crispy Eggs with Instant Toast

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2005

   ”What is that noise?” exploded Hermione as she burst into the common room. The scene that awaited her didn’t exactly fully explain the roaring noise that had awoken her from her sleep.    ”It’s eggs!” Ron grinned as he leaned across the table to snatch one of the purloined sausages Dobby had brought Harry from the [...]

Spicy Tuna with Garlic Whistles Sandwich

Monday, June 27th, 2005

This recipe is a silly little discovery. It’s just me reporting on a fun way to use garlic whistles. Garlic whistles are the tops of growing garlic plants. They are sold bundled up in a hand sized circle, with the flower just as a beginning bud. If they were left on the garlic plant they [...]

Poppy Seed Sweet Onion Risotto

Monday, May 9th, 2005

I’m trying not to mope… I understand that we reeeaally need all the rain we can get. Oregon entered spring in pretty dire drought conditions, conditions that will effect our salmon runs and beer prices for the worse. I understand the benefits of this weather we are currently having. However, the lack of winter rain [...]

Lemon Zucchini Pizza

Wednesday, April 27th, 2005

Occasionally I find myself propelled to exclaim outloud which food items I could LIVE on…  ”I could live on nothing but zucchini!” I exuberantly shouted after tasting this pizza. Layered on a bed of creamy mild goat cheese, this zucchini pizza reminds the mouth of warm sunny days and hints at the need for Snake [...]
