Collard Update, 2 Weeks In

We have been experimenting with collard greens lately.  Two weeks ago we made a giant batch of collard green kim chee, and last week we pickled the stems.  Now it is time to check on the progress.    

The Rest of the Collards

On 26 March we posted about making collard green kim chee.  One of the steps involved pulling the leafs off of the stems. So the question was, could find any recipes using the stems?

Collard Kim Chee

A while back we went to a really nice brew pub (The Wrecking Bar).  This establishment offered collard green kim chee as a side. Up to the point of ordering dinner, this place had been a home run.  The stone cellar ambiance, the fantastic bar, the kale ale cheese fondue (which we licked from the…

Curried Butternut and Apples

One of my favorite things about winter is winter squash.  The fact that acorns and butternuts, kobacha, and spaghetti squash are plentiful and cheap is a wonderful thing. Actually, wait, it’s not one of the things i like about winter, it’s the thing i like about winter.  Cold weather and the sun setting at 6…

Apple Chutney

I love apples.  I eat them regularly.  I buy big bags of them from my local farmer’s market, and stick them in the fridge, so that i always have some around. Apples are an important part of my snacking regimen. The problem is that invariably one or two will come loose from the bag and…

South Indian Style Green Pumpkin Soup

I despise winter.  I am, basically, a solar-powered person.  I require sunlight in quantity that i cannot get during the winter.  I mean, it gets dark before 6 PM and that is just wrong.  (Note:  i understand that it gets dark even earlier in my ethnic homeland along Lake Erie, and i do not know…

CFBCS13: Received Cookies

This is the second part of my posting about The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap 2013. The first part details the cookies that i made and sent out.

Vegan Chocolate Coconut Cookies for the GFBCS2013

What, you might ask, is “GFBCS2013”?  It is: All of you loyal readers who have been with us from the beginning know that the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap is, in a sense, the reason for this blog.  Quite simply, i love making cookies and love eating cookies, so i have wanted to participate in…

Isa Moskowitz and the Atlanta Veg Fest

Atlanta Veg Fest is a gathering of Vegetarians and Vegans. On Saturday 9 November 2013 i went to the third annual event, which appeared to be a pretty popular. It took place at Le Fais Do-Do in the trendy Westside. Despite my aversion to “joining things” and “being part of a group” i went to the event….

Thyme Vinagrette

Well, now it is three weeks after i made the latest batch of thyme vinegar.  Let’s check on it..  Sadly, there really isn’t anything to photograph here that you did not see in the last post.  It is just a sealed bottle with a bunch of thyme seeping in vinegar. The taste, after three weeks,…

Cheese.  It is surprisingly complex.  There is so much of it. And where do you begin learning about it? Well, Minos and i have decided to learn about cheese.  The plan is that we will get a type of good cheese from one of the local markets.  We will sample it, think about it, and…

Thyme Vinegar

I love thyme.  It has a delightful taste that i liken to lemony oregano.  It goes well in so many things. 5 years ago i had a thyme plant living in a flower pot on the front porch of my condo.  It grew like crazy, and i was swimming in thyme.  Thyme goes bad rather…
