The Food Desert Project: Bolani Kadu (Persian Pumpkin Turnovers)

The Food Desert Project: Bolani Kadu (Persian Pumpkin Turnovers)
Whenever autumn rolls around, I stockpile cans of pumpkin puree – not the “pumpkin pie filling” that has who knows what added, but the plain stuff.  I love baking with it, and for Halloween breakfast I’d made pumpkin muffins and added a jam swirl to the batter, which used 1 cup of pumpkin.  Terrific.

The Food Desert Project: Vegan Pumpkin Almond Cream Soup

The Food Desert Project: Vegan Pumpkin Almond Cream Soup
Every year, we host the Neighborhood Watch for Halloween. A while back, our neighborhood was plagued by teens who thought egg-throwing was mischief and good fun, but who didn’t realize that eggs permanently stain masonry and fabric awnings, and etch the paint on cars.

What do Vegans and The King have in common? Well, I know Elvis wasn’t exactly known for healthy eating, but you have to admit the combination of pan-fried peanut butter and bananas is brilliant – replace the fried bread with whole grains, and you’ve got yourself a healthy breakfast! We buy a lot of bananas,... Read more »

The Wayback Machine: Platonic Solid Hardboiled Eggs

The Wayback Machine: Platonic Solid Hardboiled Eggs
Well, I suppose really they’re Platonic Solid Eggs of Geometry, or possibly of Engineering, but I have a theme going, you know! This post has its roots in my love of bento, especially Japanese egg molds.  I love them, but can’t justify the kitchen space…well, at least not until they make a Tardis egg mold. Then... Read more »
