Sautéed Marinated Tofu

I am obsessed with fried tofu. I’m so happy I found and put my tweak on a recipe for sautéed marinated tofu. I can’t seem to get enough of this. I blame my changing in eating habits on my initial participation in Arbonne’s 30 Days to Wellness. My body has been cleansed of all the…

Red Rice Salad

I found a recipe for red rice salad this past spring and never got around to making it. I’m actually glad I waited until summer to make this so I could use fresh summer peaches. Sure you could use frozen, but it just won’t taste the same. Red Rice Salad 1 Persian cucumber, washed, sliced…

Pan Fried Polenta

I have a favorite lunch – I don’t’ do it very often these days, but I adore pan fried polenta. My favorite way of serving it is to get the ready made tubes of polenta, slice it up and pan fry it. Sprinkle with a little kosher salt and serve with peach-mango salsa. Now I…

Tomato Mozzarella Polenta Bake

I just recently started reading Vegetarian Times. And it is inspiring me to eat more “meatless” meals. I recently made a tomato mozzarella polenta bake. My poor husband is going along with this, though not quite happily. While he said he did enjoy this meal – he was of course going to have to eat…

Great Pasta Salad

This great pasta salad is my favorite and a “must make” for summertime – picnics, bbq, beach, lake, camping – I’ve taken it everywhere. My favorite thing about it is it’s an easy one to alter depending on your personal tastes & depending on what you happen to have in your kitchen at that moment….

Fried Green Tomatoes

Fried green tomatoes are an absolutely favorite food. If you’re lucky enough to find green tomatoes at your local farmer’s market buy them – I promise you wont be disappointed. I like to do this dish when the tomatoes are still on the harder side – if you wait until they’re soft, they’ll fall apart…

Sauteed Zucchini for Summer

Fresh fish makes my hubs happy. Spending the day on the water to get said fresh fish makes him even happier and who can argue? We live so close to the water it’s a shame not to take full advantage of what’s near us during the season.  We like to serve fresh fish with this…

Homemade Falafel Bites

Have you, after many years of doing something, ever had to change the way you do it because of something out of your control? That’s me with cooking and adult onset food allergies. There are so many degrees of food allergies, and I consider myself blessed that as obnoxious as mine are, at this stage…
