How to Make the Most of Your Pumpkin: Everything But the Stem

It’s that time of year and as far as I can remember, I’ve never done anything with a pumpkin besides carve a face in it and let it rot outside. Thus, with two sugar pumpkins around, it had to mean roasted pumpkin seeds, fresh pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie! It took several hours to accomplish […]

Nutrition Class, Thanksgiving and the Art of Diabetic-Friendly Desserts

This is going to be one of those babbling entries that doesn’t contain a recipe (sorry!). Quick rant. So I am enrolled in a Nutrition & Health class at my university, Smith College. We have this big project due where we have to write down everything we eat for 3 days and then calculate all […]

Vegan Lasagna

Ignore the crappy picture, I unfortunately left my camera’s memory card behind when I made this, so a cell phone picture will have to do until I make it again! This is probably one of the best versions of lasagna I’ve ever made though, don’t let the picture fool you. We had a dinner party […]

Disappearing Vegan Wontons

I can’t say these are anything resembling authentic, but they are pretty damn tasty if I do say so myself. Generally I make these with whatever veggies I have lying around, but I’ll outline the ingredients of my most successful combination here. It may sound fancy and complicated making wontons, but honestly this is a […]

Mock Chickpea Tuna Salad

  I had a bunch of celery to use up tonight and was too lazy for anything extravagant. An attempt at vegan mock tuna salad it was! I had made two previous attempts at this dish, one leading to this recipe and the other resulting in a big fail. The latter I blame on my […]
