My Aunt Susan is super amazing and supportive. She just got back from vacation in Morocco. While she was there she was sending pics of her food and things she was learning for my inspiration. Lucky for me she is also the queen of gifts. So she very thoughtfully and selflessly brought back some of [...]
Seitan stuffed butternut squash
A delicious meatless Monday dinner - seitan stuffed butternut squash. The butternut squash this summer has been unreal. I've been eating butternut squash from HEB, Whole Foods, Trader Joes, etc. for years and they have never tasted like this.
Man vs. Wheat
Today, too much of the food we eat is produced for consistency and yield, not health and flavor.
