Cauliflower & Kale Gratin

A gratin, by definition, is a dish covered with a crumb crust and baked in the oven, cheese is usually involved.  I wanted that warming comfort food feeling that you get from cheese but without the dairy so I substituted the milk and cheese with a cashew sauce.

Spring Garden 2014

It seems like a very long time since I've done a gardening post.  There usually isn't much to post about in the winter months except for rain drops on leaves, however, this year things are different.  Since Mother Nature decided to skip winter altogether in California and go directly to spring, so I've decided to start my spring planting as well.

Cincinnati Style Vegetable Chili

Like most people this time of year, I've been eating simple low calorie meals, in reaction to the carb loaded diet I found myself eating in November and December.  I made a big one pot meal of chili beans the other night adding a sweet potato and some kale.  This is the first meal I felt inspired to blog about all month, I've mostly been making soup.
