Mushroom, Pecan and Lentil Vegan Burgers from Food 52
I’m halfway through with this vegan challenge. How have I been surviving? Vegetables and nuts. And delicious recipes like these vegan burgers. I’ve been eating hella avocados straight from the shell, big pots of roasted vegetables over rice or grains, and a lot of Mexican food, which incorporates a lot of vegetables and is surprising […]

Other People’s Sandwiches: The Pioneer Woman’s Black Bean Burger
photo credit: The Pioneer Woman I saw this on The Pioneer Woman’s web site, and it made me want to lick my screen. I like the rich black bean base, coupled with warm melted Swiss or Monterey Jack cheese on top. I also love that Ree Drummond made this for her husband the day after […]
Forbidden Sandwich #8—Open-Faced Egg Sandwich with Zucchini, Tomatoes and Avocado Mash
When you are running late for your out of town excursion and you will not be satisfied with a bag of Funyuns or a hot dog from the Gulf station on exit 73 again, you need to make a quick snack before you hit the road.

Sandwich #94–“Grab and Go Breakfast” Apple and Cinnamon Muffins with Banana
Rating: Last spring, E and I used to have coffee every morning together outside on our patio. It was our quality time to talk about our day, plan upcoming trips and share news about our friends before we got ready for work and headed out to the train together.
Sandwich #92–“Staying Skinny” Egg and Asparagus Sandwich
Rating: E and I–well, rather, E–are still trying to shed the winter weight before we go to Miami in a week. E is being more diligent about eating right than I am. Every time I suggested a sandwich to E, he screams like a girl on a diet in the high school cafeteria as to […]
Sandwich #90–“Beach Body” Scrambled Egg White Sandwich with Peppers
E and I are planning a trip to Miami in a few weeks, partly for work, partly for play. This will involve time on the beach in very little clothing, which will expose parts of our body that may not be in the tightest form.
Sandwich #85–“Guy Night Out” Turkey Lettuce Wraps
Rating: E deserved a break from taking care of me all week. Poor thing hadn’t seen his friends, hadn’t gone out to dinner or drinks since I came down with the flu. Since I was back to work, E wanted to reclaim his social life. “I’m having Scotch tonight!” he declared.
