Jason and I went on a little pie loving streak as we were watching Twin Peaks, and this Cauliflower-Cheese Pie was one of the many I made. This yummy pie isn’t the most healthy vegetable pie, but it is delicious and not too hard to make. Recipe is originally from the Moosewood Cookbook and calls for a grated potato crust, but I rebelled and just used my grandma’s flour pie crust.

On a whim, I bought portobello’s at the grocery store as a co-worker mentioned them at lunch. I’d never cooked them, and since I don’t have a grill or bbq, Jason got out his George Foreman grill. Which surprisingly worked very well.
It was a really yummy burger, and something that we’ll cook again. The original recipe is from AllRecipes.

This is a delightful salad. Definitely makes some cheer in the winter. The mixing of the different greens is a wonderful contrast. While I wasn’t as fond of the dressing (not a big mustard fan), Jason loved it. I did add spinach to this salad as I wanted a more greens in it.
The original recipe is from the Food Network.

I love this dish. It’s spicy and hearty. I usually make it a little thicker by adding more corn tortillas, and it makes a great dip for tortilla chips. It’s really the kind of meal I can just eat and eat.
The original recipe calls for chicken, which I just substituted for some pan-fried tofu.

These are delicious and really simple to make. Sweet and spicy. Plus, they give you something else to do with sweet potatoes during the holiday season. Original recipe here.

When I went to France 10 years ago, I sat in a little restaurant on top of a hill and had French Onion Soup to die for. Now, 16-year-old me wasn’t really into food. In fact, I had so many new-to-me food allergies that I didn’t know what to do and I wasn’t used to eating anything that wasn’t frozen and bought at Costco. But ever since then, I’ve been a fan of French Onion Soup.
This recipe is original from Cookography where they call it the Best French Onion Soup Ever, and while I still think that restaurant beat this (but that could be me romanticizing my Europe trip), I do think this is damn good soup. Jason thought it was little labor intensive — I made him stir a lot –, but from what I’ve read about French Onion Soup, this recipe is actually an easier one to make. Though Jason did admit that delicious soup was worth that little extra labor every once-in-a-while.

This was a meal that I sliced and diced together. Or maybe pasted in a better word: Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce recipe, Tex Asian BBQ Tofu recipe (my recipe so does not look like Chef Erik’s picture as I rather just used the frying instructions), and Honey BBQ Sauce recipe I’m not a big fan of bbq sauce and neither is Jason, so I had to resort to making my own. This is a true what’s in the fridge today meal.

In winter where I live, fresh vegetables are rather limited without making them travel thousands of miles. So it’s always nice to find a winter recipe with fresh, seasonal (or anytime) vegetables. Plus, it has a lovely, spicy flare.
This recipe yields 6 to 8 servings, and if I make it again, I’ll cut back on the size since it’s just me and Jason at my house.
The original recipe is from the Foodnetwork’s Giada De Laurentiis

I love a good bowl of tomato soup with an accompanying grilled cheese sandwich. It’s something I grew up on. It reminds me of colder fall and winter weekends where my mom and I had been outside all day and needed something quick, hearty, and warm.
The original recipe comes from the Skinny Chef. Hers was a little more low-fat than mine and contained chicken.
This soup certain beats anything out of a can. (Sorry, mom.)

For Jason’s and my two-person Thanksgiving festivities, we started off with a lunch of Asparagus Soup. It’s light and delicious. A recipe I’d made about a year ago from The Greatest Ever Vegetarian Cookbook, edited by Graimes.
