Fried Fish Sandwich

August 13, 2012 Fish

I don’t do a lot of fish on this blog, but every once in awhile I get a craving. Summer and fried fish go hand in hand, which is why I couldn’t resist posting a lightening quick fried fish recipe. This sandwich is beautifully simple- nothing more than a good, thick piece of fish, some [...]

Apple, Apple Butter, and Brie Paninis

January 18, 2012 Dinner

I always enjoy trips to my husband’s family farm. Not only for the fresh air, quiet nights, and cuddly farm animals, but mainly for the good eats. It seems like every time we visit, we feast. This time was no exception. However, this time it was my husband’s father who did the cooking. He grilled [...]

Lentil, Quinoa, and Mushroom Sliders

January 15, 2012 Dinner

I’ve been working hard on a new recipe for veggie burgers. I usually make them with chickpeas, but my husband doesn’t like the texture. They tend to be somewhat dry. But he likes lentils, and lentils have a smoky, almost meaty taste. And the texture is ideal. Makes sense to use them in a veggie [...]

Spicy Black Bean Burgers

June 12, 2011 Dinner

Here’s a little something you may not know about me- I’m in a book club. That’s right. And I read like it’s my job. Not only for book club but I’ll pretty much read anything I can get my hands on- averaging about a book a week (we don’t have cable, boooo). I had zero [...]

Sloppy Joes

May 29, 2011 Dinner

Part of the fun of being vegetarian is making meatless versions of classic recipes like burgers, lasagna, enchiladas, etc. The trick is to make the dish equally tasty without meat. Of course, it won’t taste exactly the same, but if you can make a version that is delicious and satisfying, mission accomplished! Meat eaters may [...]

Homemade Falafel

January 30, 2011 Sandwiches

Falafel is one of those foods people often eat out at restaurants, but rarely at home. That’s the case with me, at least. It’s silly though, because falafel is so easy and cheap to make and when you do it at home, you can make it precisely to your liking. This is probably why I [...]

Fried Cornbread

January 25, 2011 Sandwiches

The first time I ate fried cornbread was two years ago at the John Blue Cotton Festival in North Carolina. I stood in a line on the baking hot fair grounds waiting for one of Shirley’s famous collard sandwiches for what seemed like ages. And I’d do it again in a heartbeat. The sandwich is [...]
