Sweetly Spicy Stir Fry

Stir Fry Vegetables in a Wok

  I’ve completed my mission! I’ve managed to use up all of the corn we got in last week’s CSA – yay!  Although today is pickup day for the CSA and I’m anticipating more corn, which I love, but it’s definitely stretching my creativity a bit (although I still have a plan to be put in action using corn next ...

  My CSA this week contained corn, potatoes, bell peppers, green beans (green, yellow, and purple ones!), tomatoes, onions and garlic.  I also had some leftover diced ham in the fridge and I was determined to make Sunday dinner using as many of these ingredients as possible.

Go figure. So I’m going to have two variations/ideas ... Read More »

Vegetable Summer Rolls

So I was wracking my brain trying to sneak in something healthy and a little bit different, ... Read More »

Tofu Triangles with Spicy Onion Sauce

The place I’m interning at has a cookout every other Friday for lunch and employees volunteer to cook, set up, bring sides, etc.  I had wanted to bring a side two Fridays ago but I was broke.  Like ridiculously, I haven’t had a paycheck/made any money for the last three and a half weeks broke.  So I volunteered for this ...
