The other day, I wanted to eat something savory for breakfast, and hubbs was giving me that (I am bored with the usual breakfasts, can you surprise me) expression.

Perhaps the heat is getting to me? I spent the entire day Monday wondering what the heck to make for dinner and wondering why the heck nothing sounded good. Maybe because I just returned from a long weekend in Jacksonville putting down copious amounts of seaweed salad, brisket and brie tacos, and grilled shrimp? I mean, what else compares? More on the Jax trip later. It took until about 4pm that something finally sounded edible, and go figure, it was only one of the weirdest combinations ever.

During my little walks back and forth between the bench press and cable row station, I began to think about squash. Recipage. Salmon Croquettes » Pardon the Dog Hair. I realize that this recipe may not sit well with some of you, mainly because it uses canned salmon. Canned fish can get a bad rap. But salmon croquettes are a favorite around my house. And the fact that they are incredibly easy to throw together makes them all the more tempting to make frequently.

I like to stuff mine full with vegetables, tossing whatever needs to get used up into the food processor. The recipe varies each time I make it but the basics are there, bread crumbs, egg, salmon, and parsley. Frequently people ask me if they can use their blender instead of a food processor to do the heavy lifting… aka chopping. I actually don’t know the answer to that because my food processor is my go-to gadget. Homemade pepper jelly is a fantastic option for topping the croquettes. But if that isn’t available, mango salsa is an excellent and easy to make alternative.

We quickly realized what had happened. The poor bird had crashed into our living room window mid-flight. Veggie Pâté Recipe. The first time I had veggie pâté, I was still at University, visiting one of my aunts.

Veggie Pâté Recipe

Come to think of it, that's almost 20 years ago... Man, time does fly, doesn't it?! Anywho, my aunt was on a health kick at the time and she was experimenting with all sorts of vegetarian dishes such as seitan pie, quinoa soup, all sorts of millet recipes and of course, veggie pâté. She didn't make the pâté herself though, she bought a brand that originated in the restaurants Commensal. I mention this because, it is the only brand I actually like but it is quite expensive. Millet and Sweet Potato Cakes.

Olives for Dinner: Curried Chickpea and Onion Fritters

Don't get me wrong, I love all vegan Indian food—I'm just lousy at replicating it. More than once I've tried to replicate various dishes at home, but it always ends in disaster. I follow instructions exactly, use high-quality spices (and even the prepared ones that have everything mixed together for you with instructions) and BAM! Instant straight-to-the-garbage-disposal-type failure. However, I've had vegetable pakoras on my mind lately after having some amazing ones at an Indian restaurant a few weeks ago and, given that pakoras are deep-fried, I decided to take a stab at recreating them at home.
