You may already know that I’ve previously written for Mother Earth News, and that I’ve done a podcast with Mother Earth News & Friends. Right, the links are in the “Publications and Podcasts” menu of our website. My latest piece, on raising roosters as a sustainable meat source and a practical means of managing unexpected cockerels, is in the June/July issue that just hit newsstands (and maybe your mailbox already).Continue reading “In Print: My Newest Article In Mother Earth News”
I never fail to be impressed with the creativity and complex flavors of Indian food – particularly since much of it tends to be vegetarian. With this plant-based Palak Tofu, the soy-based protein of firm tofu stands in for the paneer. You won’t even miss it!Continue reading “Clean Eating: Instant Pot Palak Tofu”
With the chill in the air, warming soups and comforting meals are just the ticket – and they can be made quickly and easily using an electric pressure cooker! For this one, I cooked dry chickpeas without soaking them first and used them as the base for a delightfully hearty and veggie-packed curry.Continue reading “Under Pressure: Chunky Chickpea Curry”
If you’ve visited our blog for a while, you probably know that we cook most of our food. Eating out is a rarity, typically limited to special occasions.

A large, smooth portabella cap, with its velvety brown gills, is truly a thing of beauty. But it’s also insanely delicious – with a rich, “meaty” mouthfeel – in a vegetarian-friendly cheese”steak”!
While it’s not technically “Slow Cooking Month” anymore, I’m still making delicious meals in my slow cooker and will be for the remainder of the year! This time, I’ve adapted a stovetop recipe for one of my favorite Indian dishes, Palak Paneer, into a one bowl meal where tofu stands in for the traditional cheese.
