    Thanks so much for all your kind words on my last post – it really made my day(s) to feel an outpouring of love for this little project. And speaking of project, how could I even think of giving this blog up, when I just went through my photo files and rediscovered all these “lost” [...]

    VeganMoFoV [9]: Roasted Radishes

    VeganMoFoV [9]: Roasted Radishes

    My new favorite thing is roasted or sauteed radishes.  It’s like the tastiest potato you ever had, but with a firmer texture and a more delicious flavor!  If the “bite” of a raw radish is too much for you, fear not, for this method really tames the spice, too. It’s the kind of delight that [...]

    Sauteed Ramp and Wild Rice Salad

    I don’t know about the rest of you, but here in Minnesota, spring has decided to be, well, a bit summer-y.  Highs around 70 confuse me and try to tempt me into planting my garden, but I know I need to hold off a bit longer or risk an April (sometimes early May!) frost.  So [...]

    Cardamom-Peach Amazake Scones

    Cardamom-Peach Amazake Scones

    Eager to try out some amazake-sweetened baked goodies, this recipe truly started out as an attempt at muffins.  But when I mixed my batter together I realized there was no way it was thin enough to become muffins, so I whipped out a sheet pan instead.  And twenty-five or so minutes later I was sinking [...]
