I made a gluten-free and vegan cauliflower crust pizza the other night. Super tasty!

I made a pretty simple cumin-rubbed chicken breast that reminded me that a simple chicken breast can be really good. I also topped it with a quick guacamole and roasted some potatoes and carrots, which is never a bad choice.

that sounds delicious


we're hosting a multi-course dinner with cocktail pairings tomorrow. I'm doing all the cooking and my food blogger pal Julie is doing all the drinks. It promises to be super fun and I'll share pics when I have them.

Missed this but here it is! I just followed the recipe for the crust, and threw together whatever toppings I had.

My advice, unless you have a pizza stone, don't do a big one like I did. The center was still pretty doughy after the full cooking time.

Update: it was indeed super fun. My pal who was taking pics of the courses takes forever to return photos, but I did snap a pic of the menu he designed for us:

It was SO good. I don't have the exact recipe that she used, but I know that it was pretty similar to this one. Basically, you make a syrup by cooking down rhubarb with sugar and lemon peel, then adding lemon juice at the end. To make lemonade, you then add one part syrup to three parts water and pour over ice.

this is the basic recipe I used for the vichyssoise. I omitted the garlic, chives, and paprika. I subbed in ginger root for the garlic and added nutmeg to the soup, also grating nutmeg on top right before serving. Here's the instructions I used to fry shallots. and here's the instructions i used to make mushroom chips. We bought the blood orange olive oil in Chicago.

As for the salad, it was just arugula, golden raisins, pistachio, some shreds of basil, and crumbled goat cheese. I actually put the pickled plums in the vinaigrette - soaked five of the plums in water for hours to draw out some of the salt, then removed the pits and put them in a food processor along with rice vinegar, a bit of sesame oil, some honey, walnut oil, and olive oil.

Nice, thanks! I look forward to trying these and seeing pictures when you get them!

Monkfish tail is pretty nice broiled in butter.

In fact, it's pretty nice anyway and I wonder whether I really needed all the butter.

I decided to expand my 'coat chicken in falafel mix' concept to the world of vegetables, and I started with cauliflower

I think I want to eat this every day

I like roasted cauliflower on its own, adding in falafel mix can only make it better!

Why am I not posting in this thread more often

Sadly I spaced taking a photo because time was getting tight to get to work, but yesterday I happened to make toast with thin slices of mozarella (also toasted until browned) and crushed dried basil, then put thin slices of avocado and apple, and topped with some greens of spinach, kale, and chard.

The basil and apple really added a nice bit of sweetness to everything!

I made menemen! It's basically shakshuka but instead of poaching the egg you scramble it up and stir it into the sauce. Surprise, it's still pretty good!

Sauteed shiitake mushrooms are so good. So, so good.

Sometimes poor people food is delicious. I made ramen noodles with two eggs, a handful of cheese, and a bit of hot sauce. Oh my GAWD so fucking good!

Yeah, throw some portobellos, Tapatío, onion, and an egg in beef ramen and you've got good eating right there.

I punctured a bag of this "steam in the bag" broccoli and carrots and ate that with a couple grilled salmon steaks/cuts for dinner tonight. But my plan this weekend is to make some tandoori chicken since I got a packet of tandoori seasoning.

i never thought the humble grilled cheese sandwich could be improved upon but then i added in chunks of avocado and let the cheese get super melty and to paraphrase gordon ramsay: if i could fuck off to heaven with my grilled cheese right now i would die somutterly happy. after a super shitty week i am taking this little victory.

I finally made the perfect homemade strawberry banana orange smoothie. It tasted like a Jamba Juice drink. Just wish I knew what the difference was this time.
