Chubby Hubby Mousse

Sunday, September 18th, 2005

I just read of a great version of the infamous tofu mousse in the latest Vegetarian Times. Unfortunately their website doesn’t seem to list the recipe (doh!), and their search engine is rather lame. However it was a pretty easy recipe to remember. I haven’t made it up yet- but plan on indulging myself with [...]

Mini Bagels

Monday, August 15th, 2005

Making mini portions of a recipe is such a fun little trick! You feel like you’re being good by having a smaller portion, when in actuality you probably eat three times as much, because little food items are sooo scrumptiously cute. Bagels are a fun item to make small because then they seem similar to [...]

Chocolate Silk Tofu Cream

Friday, August 12th, 2005

Living in Eugene, I find myself picking up interesting desires that try to wrap themselves around me. They say it only takes so long before you catch the running bug after living here (this is TrackTown after all, the birth place of Nike)… and, well, I’ve done that one! One sore calf muscle later, and [...]

Chocolate Chili Orange Mocha

Monday, August 8th, 2005

This weather has me completely addicted to icey things. The crowds on 13th Ave seem to be of the same mind. My campus bubble tea shop is becoming more and more popular (and I am even closer to filling up my buy-10-get-one-free card, whoppee!). The frozen yogurt shops are buzzing. The iced coffees are flowing. [...]

Chile Orange Truffles

Tuesday, July 26th, 2005

Living in Eugene, I’ve come to know more and more about various food subcultures. The list is getting impressive, as there is more than one way to butter your toast… we have vegetarians, vegans, raw foodists, fruititarians, freegans, and polyvores. This all makes for interesting potlucks in this town… “Wait a minute, I thought you [...]

Strawberry Salsa

Friday, July 8th, 2005

Last night, Sweets and I went to a potluck party for a former coworker re-visiting Eugene from France. One thing I’ve noticed of my French and German coworkers, is their appreciation for good fruit. My French coworker, Estelle would often bring in cooked-fruit plum or cherry fruit tarts to share with us at work. She [...]

Carbonated Fruit

Sunday, May 1st, 2005

I was watching an episode of Good Eats one day when the idea of using dry ice in the kitchen presented itself. Alton was looking for a way to fast freeze strawberries in the kitchen. The faster the freeze, the smaller your ice crystals inside of the fruit. Why would you want tiny ice crystals [...]

Cilantro Chili Pizza

Saturday, April 23rd, 2005

Weary and tired, Sweets and I dragged our jet-lagged bodies into our rental car, and headed up the coast line to Hilo to eat up time before we could collapse in the vacation house we had rented. The ten hour flight did not lend itself to a full night’s sleep, which only contributed to us [...]

Vanilla Vinegar

Monday, April 18th, 2005

Vanilla has been on my mind the last week. My tax preparation nibbling was an excuse to eat butter and vanilla, combined in the tasty amalgamation of a cookie. My morning oatmeal can’t do without a splash of vanilla too. I heard a rumor that vanilla bean prices are expected to drop soon, and am [...]

Almond Nectar

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2005

Eugene has introduced me to many exciting flavors to swirl around my mouth. A significant player in this flavor party was Genesis Juice, a local juice manufacturer that specializes in raw juices that aren’t pasteurized. Their juice came in funky shaped glass bottles, and entertained us with fresh flavors: green spirulina smoothies, ginger lemonade, strawberry [...]
