Beet, Yam and Kale Salad

Beet, Yam and Kale Salad

I feel like I’m finally starting to crawl out of my hole and get excited about food again, and blogging.  Winter this year has been especially tough – so so cold, and so much snow.  Only in the last month or so have I gotten back to regularly being able and willing to bike to [...]


Amazake and Friday's Lunch

Amazake and Friday's Lunch

Friday morning I woke up and pulled my amazake ferment out of the fridge, blended it with a bit of water and heated some with cinnamon and ginger.  Yum!  What a great start to the day.  For those not familiar with amazake, it is traditionally a sweet fermented rice drink, but can be made with [...]


Thanksgiving Feast!

Thanksgiving Feast!

I think my favorite thing about any big celebratory meal is getting to channel my totally unfeminist dreams of being a midcentury housewife: cleaning the house, cooking massive amounts of food, setting the table, getting to use my pretty (though very unmatched) vintage servingware, lighting candles, and playing Astrud Gilberto and Les Baxter records.  I [...]


Fruited Cabbage Kale Salad with Tahini-Garlic Dressing

I’m not huge on holidays, and rather less huge on themed food for holidays (apart from Thanksgiving and the baking and beverages surrounding that one consumer holiday in December).  Since we got our grill, however – because we have a space to have one now – I’m not opposed to an excuse for using it [...]


Friday's Delicious, Tomorrow's Chicago*

*Not that Chicago isn’t also delicious… You really can’t convince me that pesto needs cheese in it… for me it’s all about the nuts and the basil and the little bit of garlic.  Yum!  I spiralized some zucchini noodles and tossed them with a few tablespoons of raw lemon basil pesto, then squeezed some fresh [...]


Raw Week: Transitioning

Sorry for the lack of blogging the past couple days… on one hand I needed a break to work on some other projects, and on the other I didn’t really have anything blog-worthy to share.  Honestly, after Thursday’s feast at Ecopolitan, I started eating very simply for the most part.  A lot of straight up [...]


Raw Week: Fruity Crepe and Veggie Dressing

Today has been a weird day.  I had some weird nightmares so I never felt totally rested all day, and on top of it I had my (usually) least favorite shift at work. However, I had an AMAZING breakfast, as you can probably see!  I used the Rawmelette shells to make a fruit crepe.  Or [...]


Raw Week: Tuesday Eats

Just a quick post today… I am definitely way more full of energy than I have been in a long time.  I admit it could be from a combination of things, but I’d like to think my recent eating habits have something to do with it!  At any rate, I think I’m figuring out my [...]


Get It Ripe by jae steele

You know when you get a cookbook and you read it from cover to cover and cradle it in your arms and wanna marry it?  Uh… me neither; isn’t that a weird idea? Okay, so it’s really mostly true.  I heard about Get It Ripe in the Post Punk Kitchen forums awhile back and have [...]


A Birthday Dinner

So, remember how in my last post I said I was reducing my sugar intake except for holidays and special occasions?  This was a very special occasion: my ladyfriend’s 28th birthday!  We had our good friends Michael and Dan over and it was a gay ol’ party (I mean that in both senses)! While I [...]
