The Mother Dough Strikes Again


Christina Tosi’s “Mother Dough” recipe appeared here and here over spring break [drool], and made a return last night in another post-run creation by Shaun. Yesterday’s 11-miler was rough at times. The [freakishly] warm temperatures threw us for a loop, I was in a bad mood because I couldn’t get my GPS watch to do […]

The Perfect Post-Run Meal


I have a very brief window between finishing an intense cardiovascular exercise and needing food in my stomach or oh my god I’m going to freak out. This sometimes limits dinner choices to anything that can be thrown together faster than my hypoglycemia can set in. Luckily, I exercised some foresight yesterday and was able to […]

Guilty Pleasures, Recreated


One of my pre-vegetarian-guilty-pleasures in NYC was S’Mac, painfully located just a few blocks from my Alphabet City apartment. It actually should have been more dangerous than it was, but thankfully there’s only so much mac and cheese, no matter how delicious, a body can handle. I certainly pushed those limits in undergrad, though. S’Mac’s […]

Carrots for Breakfast, Again.


As promised, here’s my recipe for Carrot Cake Buckwheat Bake. The water-filled carrots add softness to this bake [and you can see them peeking out in the photo!]. I’m beginning to adore the flavor of buckwheat, too. Carrot Cake Buckwheat Breakfast Bake (Vegetarian, Vegan Option) Inspired by this [from my own arsenal]; adapted from this [at Edible […]

What’s in a Name?


This recipe was born from Shaun’s desire to bake cookies, but it was clear from the get-go it would not end in cookie form. At first, “souffle” seemed appropriate, until we nixed the souffle dish and switched to a 9X9 baking pan. The obvious conclusion from there was to title it “cake,” but cakes traditionally […]

Test Kitchen: Tofu “Plus”?


Other residents of our neighborhood told us to expect trick-or-treaters on Halloween, so we trekked to Kroger and got a pretty legit blend: M&Ms [plain, peanut, and peanut butter], Snickers, Three Musketeers, Milky Way & Twix, plus some random candies we’d received over the last week. Shaun lit the pumpkin, we put together a snazzy […]

When Life Gives You Snow in October…


Make a pumpkin and bake your dinner! Last night, we had a winter storm watch [3-5 inches] in Virginia in October. It started raining around 6PM, which turned into cold, slippery rain, which turned into what now sounds like a pretty heavy storm outside [it’s 6:30AM]. It didn’t snow, but I still think the weather warranted a warm, homestyle […]

Savory Baked & Stuffed Pumpkin


I think all of the work/travel/lack of sleep is finally catching up with me because today has been rough. I felt off throughout class and my post-class workout left me nauseated and dizzy. My face is tender to the touch, and chewing hurts. Does anyone know what these symptoms mean? Please don’t say “sinus infection.” […]

Baked Cereal


      **Per my post about Banned Books Week, here are the events happening in Charlottesville today.** The sun’s been out for quite some time now, so I woke up naturally around 7 AM… panicking because I wanted to change this morning’s recipe. C’Ville Market and Whole Foods aren’t open until 8, so I trekked to the […]
