Heidi Swanson’s Harira

February 9, 2018

We’ve had a string of cold gloomy days which had me searching for a slightly spicy comfort dish for dinner. When that’s the case it is always Heidi Swanson I turn to for help. It was delicious the first time round and even better as leftovers for Saturday lunch. Here is my adaptation from from…

An adaption of Jamie Oliver’s Vegan Shepherd’s Pie

January 19, 2018

We are having some unusually cold and icy days here in Austin and I am pulling from the comfort food recipes I tucked away during the blasting heat of summer. This particular version of Shepherd’s Pie is so worth the effort and absolutely won everyone over. Of course we would expect nothing less from the…

Tea Lights

Solstice is just around the corner, and I’ve put together a lovely spread you want to share with family or friends and mark the return to light in the weeks ahead.

In search of new fall recipes, I ordered Salma Hage’s, The Middle Eastern Vegetarian Cookbook. Having thoroughly enjoyed my time spent pouring over recipes, I certainly located some winners. And now I am looking forward to some cooler temps (in Austin that means under 100 degrees) in order to test and share my favorites. As a sneak preview, you might want to try Hage’s Date Tahini & Cinnamon Smoothie. I’ve been a fan of date, banana, and raw cacoa smoothies…

rosti

One of the most simple and enjoyable lunches Oma prepares in a flash is Kartoffel Rosti and salad. We convinced her to make it one more time during our last week in Oehringen, but challenged her to do so in slow motion so Sebastian and I could learn. While slowing Marianne down in the kitchen is no easy task, she is a fabulous teacher and can break down the steps of her tried and true recipes in such a way…

It all began when Oma, who keeps a keen eye on what is ripe and ready to eat in the garden, announced that the mangold (chard) must be eaten. Further, it was quickly determined that it would be prepared with…
