Vegan Zucchini Fritters

July 31, 2018

This is a handy recipe to have around when there happens to be a few assorted vegetables but not enough of anything to make a full meal. These fritters have become a family favorite for sure and there is never a leftover in sight. That was even true today when we doubled the recipe in…

Creamy Lemon Zucchini Soup

July 23, 2018

It happens to be every gardener’s dilemma this time of year – what to do with all the zucchini? It’s impossible to have too many recipes for zucchini. Apparently it is an international problem as well because our neighbors down the road gifted us with a basket full last Sunday morning. Moments later, a summer…

Herbed Polenta

July 16, 2018

I love to work with recipes that are easily modified and polenta certainly fits in that category. This particular version can be eaten creamy almost porridge like or firm and cut into slices. Even the slices themselves can be served as is, pan roasted in a small amount of olive oil, grilled briefly on a…

Broccoli Soup

Jan 2, 2018 | 0 Comments

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 declare this Better Broccoli Soup a win and so did my family. Ingredients 2 Large heads of organic broccoli, the longer and thinner the stems,…

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. 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 months we have been moving towards shorter darker days and now it’s time to bring on the light! While cozy tealights and a roaring fire…

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…

Oma’s Kartoffel Rosti

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…
