Pure Vegetarian By Lakshmi

Pure Vegetarian By Lakshmi
Born as a prince in the seclusion of Himalayan foothills, Siddhartha Gautama’s father shielded him from seeing disease, old age and death since birth. It wasn’t until at the age of twenty-nine, he met an aged man with a wrinkled face and bent back, outside the palace. The prince was shocked to hear from his charioteer that everyone’s life will eventually come to an end. Upon encountering a citizen who had fallen sick, a decaying corpse and an ascetic, he became resolute to understand and overcome suffering. Six years later, he was known as Buddha, the awakened one. We live in the same world. 2000 years have not swept away duhkha, loss and pain.

Cocina de Muerte Lenta: Berenjenas en Escabeche Mi madre solía prepararlas cuando yo estaba pequeña, recuerdo comerlas sin parar -sí de niña me comía las verduras sin rechistar y ¡hasta la cebolla cruda-!. Hace un par de años recordé estas deliciosas berenjenas y busqué en la web (no sé porqué no le pregunté a mi mamá) y me topé con la estupenda receta de Ana Inés del blog Sonidos y Sabores. Su receta es perfecta además incluye un paso a paso meticuloso que es imposible que falles en su elaboración. La he preparado montones de veces e incluso coincidí con mi amiga Marcela en la navidad de 2012, al usarlas como regalo para nuestras amistades. Estas berenjenas van bien con casi todo: para prepararte un rico bocadillo, para unas tostas con toque gourmet, como guarnición y hasta para tapear... por algo son tan populares en Argentina. Ingredientes:

Saffron Lane :: Seasonal Food, Celebration + Life Welcome to Saffron Lane, a blog dedicated to seasonal food, celebration and life. I'm Elizabeth, a chef, food writer, recipe developer and food stylist.My culinary career began at an early age. While other ten-year-olds were setting up lemonade stands, I was meticulously crafting gourmet chocolates and picking fresh berries from the backyard (to pair with them, of course) for my stand.

Homemade Hot Sauce! Some of us are hot sauce people. I hear the other some of us say that it “takes over” and “burns” and all that nonsense. Clearly, I am hot sauce person. It’s actually rather disconcerting how much so sometimes. Mascarpone cream and strawberry sauce | Emiko Davies Mascarpone cream and strawberry sauce Posted by Emiko on Wednesday, May 15, 2013 · 10 Comments A week ago when we left Tuscany, the fridge was full of strawberries. Ripe, perfumed spring strawberries, so red, pretty and tempting that we couldn’t help it – we kept buying punnets whenever we saw them. Needless to say, there were quite a few strawberries to consume before heading back to Melbourne’s autumn.

Recipe For Low Calorie, Lowfat Granola I love a little granola in the morning. It naturally sweetens my bowl of Greek yogurt, a breakfast staple loaded with protein but a bit on the sour side. Problem is, my favorite granola is packed with calories and fat. I decided to create my own recipe using a bunch of spices to add flavor without calories while omitting the oil which adds fat. Edible Gift Idea: The Best Chai Tea Mix! This is one of my absolutely favorite things to give away at the holiday time. It makes a great gift, especially if given with a hand-thrown mug and one of those long, involved novels that are best read in January. (Armchair optional.)

EDDIE ROSS I'd like to think that if all good things must end, even better and more beautiful things start right up again! 2013 brought changes at home and at work, with family and friends and, most of all, in our selves and the course ahead. After three and a half years of life in the country chronicling our adventures, shopping flea markets with new friends and producing stories for magazines, Jaithan and I took one last look at our Butler's Pantry... ...and packed it all up. Every. RAW Food for Truth: California Rawlls For seven years I made and delivered california rolls to a health food co-op. They were made with rice and tofu though. I hardly ever ate them myself, probably because I already had to make them constantly and didn't feel like preparing any for home.
