Greek Salad with Farro and Marinated Tofu

I just love all of the flavors in a Greek salad. The crisp sweetness of the peppers, cucumbers, red onion and tomatoes as well as the tangy, salty olives and creamy feta cheese are a joy for the taste buds. Not to mention the deliciousness of a good garlicky, lemony Greek dressing with fresh oregano. […]

Vegan Apple Pecan Cornbread Stuffing

This is my first cornbread stuffing. I’ve always hesitated to make cornbread stuffing because I wasn’t sure about the texture of cornbread in a stuffing. I know it’s a fairly traditional way to make stuffing, but I’m used to using regular bread which is lighter and fluffier. This stuffing turned out really well. The combination […]

Roasted Cranberry Chutney

All I can say is YUM! This turned out so well that I might make more after Thanksgiving just to have around. I bet it would be great in oatmeal, on ice cream and definitely on biscuits. My cranberry sauce memories all come from my Aunt Dixie. She’s probably reading this, so I hope I […]

White Bean and Tomato Salad with Lemon Thyme Vinaigrette

Roasted Beets and Grilled Halloumi Cheese

I wish I had a picture of this. It was so pretty. I knew I wanted to use Halloumi cheese. I’d never worked with it before and was thrilled that you could grill it. I also knew I wanted to serve beets. So this salad was born. I couldn’t actually find golden beets so ended […]

South Western Wheatberry Salad with BBQ Tofu

This one really turned out pretty. And tasty too! I love coming up with new flavor combinations for different grains. I must have a dozen for wheatberries alone.  This one is tangy and fresh and goes perfectly with BBQ Tofu. The tofu was a bit of a challenge, mostly because I hadn’t done it this […]

Roasted Vegetable Moussaka

Here’s another dish from the Middle Eastern Birthday Feast. I’m not a big fan of the more traditional Greek Moussaka with the cream sauce and I have a hard time making something that I don’t really like. Luckily I had recently had a Turkish Style Moussaka that I fell in love with. I couldn’t seem […]
