Meatless

Eggplant Rollatini

I am a huge eggplant fanatic.  Whenever I make vegetarian meals I’ll admit that I tend to gravitate to either eggplants or mushrooms or both. I have a vague memory of being a child and us trying to grow eggplants in our basement?  I’m not sure what we were thinking considering the plants probably needed sun but maybe we moved them? Either ... Read More »

Thai Summer Vegetable Soup

Thai soup with corn, okra, tofu and cilantro

The weather in Cincinnati has been in a bit of limbo.  While the nights and mornings are cool, the actual days are pretty hot.  I wanted to make a soup, but I didn’t want anything super heavy or creamy in deference to the weather.

It’s National Potato Day! Funnily enough when I was planning this meal I had no idea that today was going to be P-Day.  I did know that I had CSA vegetables to use up, but I love that it worked out this way.  See – I’m contributing to something larger, the decriminalization of potatoes as an unhealthy food (in reasonable portions of ...
