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…

Broccoli Soup

January 2, 2018

Sometimes we are blessed by what little we have, as was recently my experience. It was the end of the week, and I needed to put together one more meal with the remnants of all of the produce left in the fridge. Sometimes this leads to dinner fails and other times it’s a win. I…

A Solstice Supper

December 15, 2017

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. Since this year, the shortest day falls on a Friday it’s all the more reason to commemorate the shift in season. The past six…

a fall smoothie recipe

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…

Kartoffel und Mangold

Jul 7, 2017 | 2 Comments

One of the most enjoyable experiences during my summers in Germany is preparing locally inspired meals directly from the garden and this kartoffel und mangold is a fine example of how simple ingredients with simple preparation can be so delicious. 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…

Summer Salads: Planning One Week At A Time

Jun 20, 2017 | 0 Comments

A raw salad every day, whether it be for lunch or before your evening meal, is an excellent way to increase your veggie intake, alkalize your body, support healthy digestion, and promote optimal elimination. Who knew a salad could be so helpful, right? While a salad a day sounds good on paper, having what you need on hand for 7 full days can be daunting. The first challenge I faced when our home committed to eating a daily raw veggie…

Eggplant, Potatoes, Tomatoes & More!

Jun 6, 2017 | 0 Comments

Last week, I gave my family members a sincere promise that I would move on from my Indian food obsession and so, with some reluctance, I have. Now that June is rolling in and Texas produce is hitting its peak, I welcome back some old friends in the forms of shiny purple eggplants, first of the season tomatoes, and gorgeous new potatoes. With such perfect examples of summer vegetables, who else could I turn to but Yotam Ottolenghi for guidance.…
