Delights

In 2061 North Park on January 20, 2010 at 5:36 pm

Ahh yes, January’s backlog of tasty treasures created in the newly expanded (I pushed the fridge all the way back to the wall) kitchen of 2061. 

My computer just died this week so posts will really be sporadic. Unless someone out there has the urge to merge with my dead Ubuntu laptop and find the magic potion to bring it back to life. Any takers?

Anyways, onto the porn.

 

Kappa Sushi

A nice light dinner. Doesn’t it look great on my new sushi platter? Thanks Mom and Dad!

 

Up-close with the Kappa

Ain’t she purty?

 

 

Soyburger Helper

 

Mmm… spiral noodz, a package of mexican soy ground round, a can of sweet corn, a few tomatoes and a tonnnne of sauteed onions and mushrooms. Frig. 

OH YEAH. I also mixed in a bunch of cheddar DAIYA for cheezy, stringy, ooey-gooey-goodness.

 

So hot she’s steaming.

Damn, girl. Ya look good. 

 

 

Chocolate Mint Brownies

 

So, I was in a rush one morning and I reallllly wanted brownies. I wanted them so badly I did not wait until they cooled to pour on the chocolate mint icing. In doing this I learned how to make dense brownie fudge. The heat of the brownies re-liquified the icing and it seeped throughout the brownies and upon cooling I was perplexed as to why my brownies were not the moist delights I was expecting. Chantelle explained to to me and then the forks came out and this is what happened. Three of us attacked it and attack it we did !

 

 

Coconut Curry with Toasted Coconut on Jasmine Rice

 

 I toasted my own coconut and re-created the Janes On The Commons  Exotic  Madras Curry! Thanks for posting your ingredients on your to-go boxes. Muhuhaha.

I TOASTED MY OWN COCONUT.

I TOASTED MY OWN COCONUT.

so easy. need it always.

toasted coconut, you are my love.

 

 

Roasted Herbed Veggies over Jasmine Rice

 

I have a new obsession. It’s roasted root vegetables. ROAST MY HEART. Well, no, don’t. Roast every root vegetable you get your paws on. My heart is not a root vegetable.

These vegetables were done with sage, thyme, rosemary, summer savory, olive oil, salt, and maple syrup. As far as I am concerned it is pointless to live, let alone roast RV’s without MS.

Truth.

 

xo.

BDBrunch

In Not-my-street-eats on January 14, 2010 at 2:57 pm

Ahh yes, the 3rd Annual Boxing Day Brunch at the Smitherbie residence.

This year we fed 19 people! Many people said it was one of the best parties they had ever been to ! Now, that’s a compliment. We had Lady Gaga and air hockey, 5 snuggies, and a massssssive sectional couch, and I had tanqueray. Thank you Colleen.

On to the food!

Gigantic Tofu Scramble

This scramble contained 3 pounds of tofu! THREE POUNDS. It had mushrooms, onions, carrots, and green pepper. Goodness it was a fine, fine scramble.

Gingerbread Waffles

This recipe from Vegan Brunch is out of control good. Luckily for us the Smitherbie residence comes complete with a handy-dandy waffle iron.

Cranberry Ginger Sauce

Again, from Vegan Brunch, this recipe is the bomb-diggity. Cranberry and ginger accompany the gingerbread waffles like it’s their only wish in life. They are all-over-it.

Hash-style Potatoes

Boiled the night before, fried up with some veggie dogs.. HASH ! Nom.

Deeericious Soup

This is one of my personal recipes and it doesn’t taste like it looks! It’s not slop, promise. It’s a lentil soup with curry, cumin, cilantro, smoked flavouring, and lots of sauteed onions. You’d love me a little more if you tried it, trust me.

Festive Holiday Salad

In this picture you can clearly see the effects of the Tanqueray. Yes, my picture taking skills were held captive by Gin and juice! IT WASN’T MY FAULT. This salad is from Gourmet Magazine, and let me tell you…it’s a winner!

Carrot Cake with Creme Cheeze Frosting

This cake has graced my blog before. It’s the Best Vegan Carrot Cake EVAR. Again, the tanqueray.

The Spread

This is our jam packed table! The scramble is on the stove.

My BDB Plate

Ohhhh the tanqueray.

More to come soon! I have some more from Mary’s Place Cafe as well as more Daiya filled goodies.

xo.
