the peanut butter pancakes with the optional chocolate chips and banana slices are incredible!

I made the Summer Squash Soup tonight, using a pattypan squash and a globe zucchini...and red potatoes because that's what I had on hand. It's absolutely delicious and very filling.

update: made the thai summer squash soup. holy shiitake. very easy to make, and for such simple ingredients, it tastes PHENOMENAL. the only change i made was subbing celery seeds for the celery since i didn't have any, and i think it worked well.

Made the peanut pumpkin soup - mostly because I happened to have everything in my pantry already. Very yummy and rich. I am looking forward to making that summer squash soup now too!

Thanks to everyone recommending the summer squash soup! I made it today and it's great! I only puréed half of it, because I like my soups kinda chunky. I'll have to keep this recipe in mind for whenever I have some zucchini to use up. And, as I have some zucchini left over from his recipe, it's chocolate zucchini bread time! I don't think I've mentioned this recipe yet - it's another one I made from this book that has been great.

I made the Curried Cauliflower soup, it was pretty good. I used an immersion blender and thought if I had a regular blender it might have been smoother.

I forgot how lovely these recipes are. Made the cornmeal blueberry porridge for breakfast this morning - came together in 10 minutes and was a great start to the day.

I made the almond butter and strawberry sandwich for breakfast a few days ago, and that was a nice change of pace from my usual PB&J. Highly recommend!

Just made the blackberry breakfast bars, and they are incredible! I definitely think the fruit filling could be doubled. But they're seriously fantastic.

I was happy to get this book for 2.99 too! When it came out, I wanted it for two recipes that I saw in the index pages: blueberry corn pudding and sweet potato tacos.

I made the blueberry corn pudding this weekend. To me, it was more of a polenta than a pudding, so I welcomed myself to have it for breakfast. It was a nice change from oatmeal.

(My spellcheck doesn't recognize polenta and offers me "tadpole" instead.)

I love this cookbook. The mango saffron mousse is one of my favorite quick dessert recipes -- super healthy (fruits + silken tofu) but stupidly delicious. Reminds me of Indian mango ice cream (kulfi).

The black olive crostini with the cashew cream in this book is ridic. So so so good. Best cashew cream I have ever had, it must be the addition of miso and sauteed onions.

Borrowed this from the library and tried only a couple of things, but I must say this book is quickly climbing the charts in our house.

Made the blackberry breakfast bars, which were fantastic. They remind me of date squares (is that a Canadian thing?) There is this lemony blackberry filling sandwiched between some oaty, brown sugary crumble. Added some coconut too. The other thing we tried was the spicy black bean and olive hummus dip. Doesn't seem like anything especially noteworthy, but boy this was good. There are little bits of jalapeño and I used cured black olives. Mmm mmm mmm.

Next up, the persimmon tea cake. I am not actually a fan of persimmons, they have always been a little too sweet and mushy for my taste, but am itching for some reason to try this cake out.

The soups alone are enough for me. Yeah, yeah, more soups. But it's winter and a big bowl of soup with a grilled peanut butter sandwich is pretty much heaven for me. I've actually tried some soups with vegetables I typically don't like, such as the curried cauliflower soup. I hate cauliflower, but I like the soup. And the spicy yellow bell pepper soup (although I'm starting to come around to bell peppers). Also, the orange glazed tempeh, and the kiwi banana muffins! I've only had the book for a few days, but it's a winner. $2.99 well spent on the Kindle version.

Nice to see this pop up again. The carrot and red pepper soup is on deck for my Christmas meal. :)

FYI - If you make the Edamame Soup, add some smoked paprika. You'll thank me.

Last night I made the garlicky greens with pasta, using mustard greens from my garden.

I didn't like the method of boiling the greens before cooking the pasta - it was fussy and I had trouble tossing the greens through the pasta afterwards. Maybe the variety of mustard greens I was using is part of the reason - I've got the thin, lacy-leaved greens and it seemed like boiling was unnecessary since they're delicate. Maybe other mustard greens are heartier?

I also had to doctor up the end result a bit, with a few splashes of white wine. I also used minimalist baker's cashew parmesan instead of the pine nuts called for.

The orange-glazed tempeh is wonderful! It was so easy to make and pantry-friendly. I first served it as a protein in an Asian-inspired salad, and then two days later, I put it in a baguette with daikon pickles, garlic aioli, and cilantro. I loved it both ways, and could've just as easily eaten it with rice and sautéed greens.

The sugar and spice almonds are just as addictive as stated. They work equally well with water instead of the oil to get the coating to cling to the almonds. They're truly best when fully cooled and dry. (But it's hard to wait.)

The parsnip soup is full of flavors even with water replacing the wine. The parsnip is sweet with miso as a salty note, while the potato tempers the parsnip's strong taste.

I liked the coconut rice with swiss chard curry, but not enough to make it again. A bit watery maybe.
