What’s For Dinner*: Tofu Quiche With Spinach And Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Let’s clean out Vicster’s fridge again, shall we? A few weeks ago, I realized that I was missing having quiche on my vegan menu, so I went in search of inspiration. I found an easy one on Minimalist Baker and used that as a template for creating my own Vegan Clear The Fridge Quiche. The…Continue reading What’s For Dinner*: Tofu Quiche With Spinach And Sun-Dried Tomatoes

The One Where Vicster Tries New Things

Then I opened one of the bags and already the spinach was turning into…Continue reading What’s For Dinner: Emergency Saag and Lentil Stew

The Raleigh World: Ten Months

We’re getting into Hot Cocoa Season. HOORAY!!! I’m wearing shirts with sleeves that extend below my elbows. WOOT!!! The trees are turning and the colors are stunning! However, it’s still and forever Allergy Season for me because apparently, I’m allergic to air. Win some. Lose some. Where DOES the time go?

What’s For Dinner: Curried White Bean and Pumpkin Soup

(Fall colors + cool fall weather) + stuff I need to use up = SOUP.

What went in the pot: spices to…Continue reading What’s For Dinner: Curried White Bean and Pumpkin Soup
