I love to feed people delicious, homemade food. I also obsessively devour cookbooks -- I own loads of them, and each one is marked up with plastic-y post-it tabs, labeling recipes I want to try. My local library also gets very good business from me.
Interests: books, writing, cooking and baking, yoga in 100 degree rooms, traveling, podcasts, journalism, sunshine, fresh herbs, farmers' markets, snowboarding, longboarding, food blogs

The red cabbage is so delicious! Same with the kale and chickpeas. I'm going to have to make that soon!

You speak the truth! And leftovers from the freezer aren't half bad heated up in a toaster oven. Not quite as fluffy as the day they were made, but still scrumptious.

The pancakes are wonderful! I just had some this morning from the freezer - I popped 'em in the toaster oven and they were crispy perfect! And yes, Morningstar breakfast patties are better than some other brands for sure.

Haha, yeah I suppose I do have a pretty big food pantry. There's a perk to living in NJ!! :)

Hi Steph! I'm so glad this worked out for you and you got to enjoy yummy kimchi pancakes. Mmm, now you're making me hungry for some! :) I hope to post more Korean recipes soon - please stop by again, so fun to have you!

Hi, Alisa -- thanks for stopping by and commenting! This soup is seriously delicious and so easy to make. Maybe you should get rid of the cayenne you have and buy a new bottle? Sounds crazy! I don't know if you like spicy food, but I absolutely love Penzey's Spices' chipotle powder. Smoky, spicy, oh so good.

Haha, funny commenters. Ina's no hippie, and yes, who's got it in for balsamic? I missed that one. I know there are many fancier vinegars I've yet to explore, but I thought balsie was a good ol' basic. I remember this recipe from Ina's show a while back, will check it out now that it has your reco! Thanks! Also, as Laryssa, where to get wheat berries?

Thanks so much, Stephanie! It's great to hear my recipes are helping people enjoy delicious Korean food. :) Please come back and let me know how your pancakes turn out! I don't know if you saw my comment above, but my mom also puts cut up hot dog in hers -- not sure if that appeals to you, but it's pretty delicious...

Thank you, CookiePie! I have to say, the spreadsheet is incredibly helpful. The pasta was excellent and yesterday I made tortilla soup -- So Good.

Hi, Phil-thanks for dropping by! Actually, in an effort to keep something in my life fairly simple, I'm not really imposing any rules on the Home Food Project. Just trying to buy only what I really need and use up all my food at home. I'm sure I'll come up with more creative dishes! Hopefully they'll be as tasty as that pasta...

Hi, Season -It's definitely a great way to make sure you're utilizing what you have. I find myself wanting to go grocery shopping once I've gone through all of my favorite things, but there's still so much to eat! :) Thanks for commenting!
