Black Bean Pumpkin Seed Quesadillas

Wednesday, July 6th, 2005

I have to admit… the verdict is still out on whether or not these quesadillas need cheese or not. Yes, I realize that calling them quesadillas and not having cheese in them is rather, odd, but that’s often how things swing here in Eugene. There is a rather high number of cheeseless people here, who [...]

Soft Cooked Duck Eggs with Warm Anchovy Vinegarette

Friday, June 24th, 2005

This month’s IMBB event celebrates the simple joy of eggs. Eggs are one of the most versatile ingredients of cooking, serving as a highlighted player, or blending into the mysteries of wonderful baked goods. As any converting vegan knows, giving up eggs in ones diet is a difficult task! I choose the simple route for [...]

Pisces Albacore Tuna

Wednesday, June 15th, 2005

A new pick this time around at Eugene’s Tuesday Farmers’ market is troll-caught North Pacific Premium Albacore by the fishing vessel Pisces. This couple once sold their handpacked tuna and salmon to area grocery stores, but soon grew disappointed with the effects of high markups. “We want our fish to available for everyone, not just [...]

Tea Time Scones

Sunday, June 5th, 2005

This recipe is courtesy of one of my favorite recipebooks organized by my Mom, at Willamette University. I have the great fortune of having a mother who is a wonderful cook, and who has also accomplished the task of creating a community cookbook with her co-workers at Willamette University titled Culinary Delights and Bearcat Bites. [...]

Garlic Chive Goat Cheese with Mango Jalapeno Jelly Bites

Saturday, April 30th, 2005

I came to our Saturday Market with an agenda to pick up produce for making meatballs. My well laid out plans got hi-jacked by my favorite jelly stand, Byrd’s Basket when I stopped to see what was new this weekend. I unfortuantley missed out on the pommegranate jelly, but I got pulled in by another [...]

Savory Cheese Puffs with Chipotle Cream

Saturday, January 1st, 2005

This recipe resulted out of a failed attempt to make sweet cream filled cream puffs for [blush] breakfast. I’m embarrased that I got caught making such a breakfast, but these things happen. I blame this entirely on the presense of whipping cream being in the house (what’s a person completely capable of making up pastry [...]

Thai Salad Rolls, aka De-tox Food

Sunday, December 12th, 2004

These rolls have found a special place in my kitchen… they fit a very precise category of meal: clean food. By this, I mean, a proper lunch after having had cream puffs for breakfast (and that isn’t a euphemism, btw), or a meal that is a great way to get ones vegetables in when one [...]

Seduced By a Burger

Saturday, December 4th, 2004

My quick bite to eat today turned into a little something not so quick. I hate it when that happens! I’ve had one of those headachey days and found myself craving Christmas cookies like a mad woman. Then I realized that I hadn’t had lunch, and a good quick meal would probably fight off my [...]

Blue Cheese Religious Conversion

Monday, November 29th, 2004

One of the food items left over from our Glo Party were John’s blue cheese balls rolled in black sesame seeds. I’ve always been a bit leary of blue cheese… its always come on a bit strong for my taste. However, I was not about to toss cheese out of my kitchen! Searching around on [...]

Glo Party Foods

Sunday, November 21st, 2004

Unfortunately, none of our foods glowed of their own accord. Perhaps someday science will find a way for edible glow-in-the-dark food stuff, but until that moment arrives, we just have to do the glowing ourselves. I have a difficult time staying with a recipe for awhile. They tend to be short term relationships. I recognized [...]
