Winter CSA: Slow Cooker Asian Corn Cabbage Soup

noFeatured

Winter CSAs are definitely an adventure. It’s an all you can eat wonderland of kale, chard, bok choy, cabbage, tatsoi, collards and even more healthy green veggies. Of course beets, lettuce, carrots, and even cauliflower are peppered into the mix too. We didn’t get a CSA the week we got back from vacation, so I innocently bought a […]

Quick and Easy Citrus Bok Choy Salad

Okay, I want to just get it out in the open and tell you this is not a slow cooker recipe. It’s really a use up all that bok choy that just keeps coming in my Winter CSA box concoction. Also, Cheryl is a picky eater and eating it raw seems to be working better […]

Vegan Red Beans and Rice for 2

red beans and sausage

You’ve probably noticed that I’m trying to come up with more savory recipes for the 1 1/2 to 2 quart slow cookers. I live in a two person household with a slew of wonderful (and demanding) companion animals. I know I’m not the only one without a large family. By making a smaller amount for […]

Vegan Sin-cinnati Chili for Your Halloween Dinner

sin-chili

Since I taunted you with Halloween yesterday I thought I’d give you something to make for your Halloween dinner party. Cincinnati chili is similar to a regular meaty chili except it has unusual spices that you see more in pumpkin pie than an all-American stew. Traditionally it’s a meat chili that has kidney beans as an optional topping […]

It’s getting close to my favorite holiday, Halloween. This weekend we started decorating the house for our annual Gothic dinner party. We have over 8 big plastic bins chock full of goodies, so it takes days to get everything in place. So far we are about 1/2 way there. Of course, once the house is […]

Slow Cooker Orange Fig Pecan Oatmeal

I love orange flower water and once I got my hands on a bottle I was hooked. It has a very delicate, sweet, floral fragrance and a delicious taste when used sparingly. If you use too much you’ll feel like you’re eating perfume. If you can get to a Middle Eastern Store it’s surprisingly cheap, so get […]

Slow Cooker Pear Rose Cardamom Cake Oatmeal – the Oatmeal to Help You Escape the Monday Blues

pearcardamomoats

This is a Monday that I’m just not prepared for. I’ve been taking things out of cabinets, cleaning and re-organizing the kitchen all weekend. That sounds great right? I’m probably just tired but should think of that feeling of accomplishment. Except – I’m still not done and my kitchen is a little wreaked. I hate […]

Beyond Easy Not-Refried Beans

Now that I’ve at gotten you to at least start thinking about getting a 1 1/2 to 2 quart slow cooker – here’s another recipe for it. This time it’s a savory staple that can make any meal easy – refried beans, except my beans play no part in the frying game. They’re completely oil-free, […]

Slow Cooker Apple Pecan Blondie Oatmeal

appleBlondie

I think there’s something about the cooler, rainy weather, as well as the orange and red leaves that makes me crave the butterscotch-y flavor of blondies. There’s nothing wrong with brownies, but there’s so much more you can do with blondies. They are the blank check of the dessert world in my opinion. You can go with fruits, nuts, chocolate chips […]
