Creamy Asparagus Soup With Homemade Croutons

Soup is my favorite. If I were a poet, I would probably write an Ode To Soup at least once a week. But I am not a poet and besides, Lewis Carroll had already said it all in Alice, so I can only adore soup through cooking and devouring vast quantities of it. Lucky for […]

Leftovers Glorified — Curried Chicken Pie

Every time I make a batch of curative chicken stock, I end up with a pile of practically inedible chicken meat.  The main objective of stock making is the beautiful broth, so everything that goes into the pot becomes merely a source of the minerals and flavor.  Sadly, at the end of the process all […]

The Great Turkey Challenge, Day One: Tangy Turkey Salad

Today is the first day of The Great Turkey Challenge. For lunch, I decided to make some turkey salad and stuff it in a whole wheat pita. Precooked turkey, especially the breast meat (which is what I have) tends to dry out easily, so the salad needs to have plenty of juicy ingredients. I also […]

Quinoa Guilt

While I enjoy exploring new dishes, I don’t always happily adopt new ingredients. Especially when everyone tells me I must try them.  In fact, I am often feeling the opposite: if everyone tells you this is the new wonder food, it’s probably not that good. Such was my relationship with a few you-must-eat things, namely […]
