Cartoonist is going to APE

Sorry, once again, for a week without writing, but we have been getting ready for APE (Alternative Press Expo) in San Francisco, this weekend, and so, I have not even been cooking, but making quick stir fries, or eating popcorn, or, as we did last night, eating Indian food. We will make cookies to give […]

Cooking precludes writing

Sorry for the lack of posts this week. I have my sweetie in town, and will write about what happened, and the new cook books I picked up, and fun things like that. But, and this is often the case, unfortunately, having guests takes up the time I would normally be writing this blog, so […]

Sometimes, you just have to go out

My sweetie came into town today, with my mother. I thought I would make them a lovely dinner, when they did come, but they came on a day when I was out all day, and by the time I got home, and they got there, there was no time to even think of making anything, […]

Making veggies for breakfast

So, what do you eat for breakfast when you are trying to go off eggs? For me, I have been having eggs for the longest time for breakfast, in all different forms, but eggs just the same. So, it was a bit of a jolt to consider something else.¬† For a while, I used to […]

Making donuts from scratch

The recipe was another one from the Yogurt¬† cookbook, so of course it called for yogurt. Cartoonist mixed the wet ingredients, and I mixed the dry. Here is what it called for, to make 3 dozen (thought of course we didn’t manage to make that many) 4 1/3 cups of flour (we used white rice […]

But I wanna make donuts

All last week, Cartoonist kept bugging me to make donuts. I was still working with the ratatouille, and wanted to make that, or the naan, or the muffins,and saw no reason to make donuts. It wasn’t something that we eat that often, so it wouldn’t be something were trying to replace. But Cartoonist wasn’t thinking […]

When to put stuff in the compost

No, I am not actually going to give you a lecture about not putting bones and meat into the compost, rather I am talking about when your food is such a failure that you really are not going to eat it, nor is Cartoonist going to eat it, or your friends. That was the conclusion […]

Trying to make Naan bread

One of the things I miss eating is Naan. I used to get it when I went to the farmer’s market, where I would watch them fry up the batter right there. But of course, they make it with wheat, so i wanted to make my own without, and when I saw a recipe for […]

Raspberry muffins, didn’t work

The last muffins I made ere good, but flat, so one of my friends suggested using egg whites to make it lighter and fluffier, so I decded to try that. Seemed like a good idea at the time. What wasn’t a good idea was thinking that raspberries would be a good filling. I thought, at […]

Doing Indian Ratatouille Again

I had to do it. I loved how the ratatouille turned out so much, I had to make it with orange juice, even though I didn’t think that it was going to make that big a difference. That, and the saffron, were the only things I hadn’t put in, and I really wanted to see […]
