In The Kitchen: Monday

Published on July 30, 2012 in Food, InTheKitchen

I like to start the day by loading up the dehydrator. That way, it has plenty of time to run before any afternoon storms. Today I made Zucchini Chips. These were quick and easy to prep, since all you have to do is wash the zukes and then slice them about 1/4 inch thick. I

What’s for Snack: Pinto Veggie Crackers

Published on July 24, 2012 in Food, Recipe, Snacks

Because we eat a lot of hummus here, we are always looking for something crunchy to go with it. There are plenty of tasty chips and crackers on the market, but they all contain a fair amount of sodium. So my goal was to attempt making crackers in my dehydrator. Equipment: Food Processor and Food

What’s For Snack: Quickles

Published on July 17, 2012 in Food, Lunch, Recipe, Snacks

These are quick refrigerator pickles, so DH has dubbed them “Quickles”. They can be made with any combination of fresh vegetables you like. They are a really healthy snack, and will add the vinegar and dill flavor to main meals, such as the Southwest Veggie Burger! They don’t really need any salt in the mixture

What’s For Dessert: Cheese Cake

Published on July 13, 2012 in Dessert, Food, Recipe

This cheese cake was a total “invention” from start to finish… and it was a total success! I wanted to make a no-bake cheesecake, and use chia to thicken it. I made it in a mini pie pan (in case it was a disaster) and it’s a good thing I didn’t make it bigger… we

What’s For Dinner: Southwest Veggie Burger

Published on July 10, 2012 in Dinner, Food, Recipe

Please note: this one is not gluten free because of the 5-grain tempeh used. This is my first attempt at making a home-made veggie burger mixture. I used a food processor to make most of it. Ingredients: 2 cups black beans, cooked, well drained 1 package WestSoy 5-Grain Tempeh 1/2 lime,  juice of 1 clove
