Baking Roundup

I don’t know if anyone looks at this blog anymore, but I do. It helps me remember what I’ve made before and liked. I’ve noticed that my last few posts have been heavy on the baking … and still I haven’t been keeping up with everything I’ve been making. Here is a roundup of all [...]

Kale Galette

I’ve gotten into the habit this winter of baking bread for dinner. Not loaves of bread — pizzas, rolls, scones, and tonight a galette. I found this recipe for a mixed green galette with onions and chickpeas in the New York Times this morning, and it seemed like a perfect baking/dinner project to fit in [...]

Pumpkin Lentil Soup

Gah! I made this soup tonight and had to write down the recipe as soon as I finished eating it so that I don’t forget. This soup is so good. I had a bumper crop of pie pumpkins in my garden this year (see my harvest in the picture), so I have lots of pumpkin [...]

Fancy Pants Pizza

I’m back! You may or may not have noticed, but I took a little blogging hiatus. This hiatus coincided with me starting a new job and, along with that, a new food blog. That, in addition to taking care of three cats and a PhD student, has had me a little distracted. I’m hoping that [...]

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I can’t believe I haven’t posted this recipe yet! This is my go-to cookie recipe. It can be vegan or not depending on what ingredients you have around, and the cookies are just super tasty. I think the large portion of vanilla makes them extra good — and if you’re also using vanilla soy milk, [...]

Rosemary Pull-Apart Rolls

And here are the rolls I served with the veggie sausage & white bean stew. They are nearly impossible to stop eating when they’re warm & fresh from the oven. I adapted the recipe very slightly from the Poppy Seed Pull-Apart Roll recipe in Vegan Brunch by Isa Chandra Moskowitz. Rosemary Pull-Apart Rolls 4.0 from [...]

Veggie Sausage and White Bean Stew

Sara is working on the research for her PhD dissertation. It’s a grueling process that so far has been full of much excitement and some major lows. At times, it seems like this study is taking over our house.  I’m glad that I can at the very least be a support for her during this [...]

Pumpkin Hummus

It’s my birthday! And I have a pie pumpkin, so I made up this recipe for pumpkin hummus. It tastes great — birthday magic! Pumpkin Hummus Print Recipe type: Dip Author: Megan Kocher Prep time: 10 mins Total time: 10 mins Ingredients 2 C cooked or canned chickpeas 1 C pumpkin puree 1/4 C lemon [...]

Basil Lemonade Scones

This recipe was a big hit at the food swap last weekend. Someone commented that these scones taste like sunshine. I like that. I based them on the orange scone recipe I’ve posted before (from Vegan With a Vengeance.) Basil Lemonade Scones Ingredients: 1 1/4 C soy milk 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar 3 C [...]

Crepes Two Ways: Chanterelles and Honeyed Apricots

After three weekends of traveling, I finally got to stay home and go to the farmer’s market last week. I was so excited to be back, I wanted to splurge on everything. I got a kohlrabi t-shirt, honey, 12 ears of sweet corn, fingerling potatoes, and chanterelle mushrooms. To round out my bliss, I decided [...]
