Reviewed Chickpea and Artichoke Masala
"I have quite a bit of experience with Indian cooking, and I did not think this was a very tasty recipe. The amount of acidity from the artichoke brine (even when rinsed) combined with the lemon created a very tart flavor. The flavor reminded me a lot of mint chutney dip, which is quite tasty, but not for an entire meal.
Reviewed Split Pea Soup
"Vegetarians can easily omit the ham, and then replace the 8 cups of water with "mock" chicken stock created from "mock" chicken bouillon. Served with hard, crusty french bread--delicious!
Reviewed Lemony Shrimp Scampi Pasta
"Just too much lemon flavor--too much, too much. So lemony it was almost hard to eat. Great concept, just tone it back a bit.
Reviewed Sunny's Money Salad
"Very healthy with bold, fresh flavors. Vegetarian and carnivore approved.
Reviewed Cool Couscous Salad
"Vegetarians can easily omit the chicken and this dish still tastes great. I eat select seafood, and I like to add garlic sauteed shrimp to this dish! This is a great dish for those hot summer days--great variety of flavors and bright citrus punch!
Reviewed Baked Penne with Roasted Vegetables
"I often mix-and-match the vegetables with the seasonal vegetables provided to me by my local farmer. This dish allows for a lot of flexibility. Also, provolone works as a good substitute if fontina is not readily available.
"Very tasty--but for the health conscious, you can easily increase the amount of tomatoes and reduce the amount of oil for a healthier pesto. This also helps tone down the garlic a tad--which is a little intense, even for a garlic fanatic like myself.
"Vegetarians can easily swap the chicken stock with "mock" chicken bouillon cubes used to make a "mock" chicken broth and it tastes great. Super fast dish to make on a busy work night--great comfort dish.
I am a 20-something high school English teacher in the small town of Columbia, Missouri--home to the University of Missouri. Go Mizzou!
My husband is also an English teacher, so many of our hobbies are similar--this includes cooking and food, which we love to do together for a great date night. Together we also love to travel, including international trips with students. We are also hiking and camping enthusiasts--we have mastered the art of dehydrating our own camp food for the pack.
I have been a vegetarian since 2000...but other than that, I eat nearly all foods that come my way. My culinary passions include wine, cheese, bread, and beer!
I also like making foods from all over the world--Italian, Chinese, Mediterranean, Indian, Mexican. The more bold the flavor, the more I like it! I also like finding ways to make traditional foods vegetarian friendly. My husband is not vegetarian, so if he likes it, you know it's a great dish!
