Playing it Loosey Goosey with the Moosewood Cookbook

“Even now, when I’m stuck in that “what am I gonna make??” spiral, I pull the Moosewood Cookbook off the shelf and rifle through the pages, looking for an ingredient or preparation that will spark an idea or let me go off on a cooking tangent. That’s what happened with this sandwich.”

Revenge of the Elevenses: Miso Nut Butter

Almost Instant Yogurt Creme Brulee
