Another Curry and Breaking "Da Rulez"

This one’s a seasonal curry this time.  I think I’ve made something from almost every one of Chef Michael Kiss’s cooking classes I’ve attended at the Old Town Whole Foods.  I like his food philosophy: “An onion is an onion.”  Using what’s available to you will create a unique dish with your personal touch.  Since I’m just about incapable of following a recipe to a tee (I have opinions about what I put in my mouth.  Strong opinions.)—or a tea—I like that advice.

A Tale of Two Aunts (PB Choco Madness)

Happy Birthday to my fashion-forward Aunt B!

I did not make these cookies for her, though.  I made them for my Aunt A’s birthday last year.  Since both of them like chocolate, these cookies would be appropriate for either.

Rule number one of being vegan and gluten-free: always bring your own snacks.

Cookies for Thought

The cookie recipe I present to you today included in its description the instruction to “[e]njoy with a glass of cold soymilk and dunk away without guilt [emphasis mine].”

A More Refined Version: Bread Pudding

Playlist: Evanescence—The Open Door, Fallen (must be something about this time of year), Rammstein—Rosenrot, Marilyn Manson—Eat Me, Drink Me, Rob Zombie—The Sinister Urge, Clan of Xymox—The Best of Clan of Xymox

To complement this musical mélange, I bring you a dessert, the base for which is a  mélange of breads.  I apparently took it upon myself to owe you all earlier this year.  I made something similar in April.

A Cake that’s Grape, er, Great!

While watching the Navy-Penn State football game (go Navy!) a few weeks ago, I converted this recipe.  As I was telling my cousin who is currently in his high school's marching band, I watched enough football for a lifetime when I was in colour guard in high school.

Sometimes, you just have to bring your own in order to make sure you’re fed.  As Hillel the Elder said, “If I am not for myself, who is for me? And if I am only for myself, what am I? And if not now, when?” (Pirkei Avot 1:14)
