Thank you for this idea! I came across this post & thought it was a great idea, so I made two sets this Christmas for two of my brothers-in-law, one with famous movie directors and one with famous economists. Have given the first & it was well received. Thanks again for the inspiration!
2  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: Vegetarianism in childhood on: November 17, 2010 12:04:21 PM
The vegetarians I know have veggie kids. I am in the opposite situation, like you mentioned. My DD is a vegetarian and the rest of us are omnivores. I usually make either veggie food (sometimes with a meat option on the side) or a meat dish with a veggie option on the side. My other DD doesn't eat cooked vegetables or stuff with sauces, so I'm always leaving something plain anyway.
3  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: What's your fav easy meal? on: July 16, 2009 09:38:08 AM
A couple of super-easy and cheap ones:

Spaghetti with red sauce

Cook spaghetti according to directions on package.
Simmer 1 lg. can pureed tomatoes with one peeled onion for about 10 minutes.
Sauce can be finished with a little butter, salt and pepper, maybe some Parmesan. Add a handful of washed spinach and let it wilt in the sauce if you're feeling virtuous, or serve with a salad.

Heat some tortillas or tostadas. Top with heated beans (can of black beans, pinto beans, chili beans, refried beans) and anything else you like cheese, sour cream, salsa, lettuce, tomatoes, chopped bell pepper, etc. You can also use some meat if you'd like. Endless combinations!

I also often make salads into meals by adding chicken/leftover meat/tuna/beans (usually cannellini) to lettuce/spinach and sliced vegetables + store-bought dressing (check labels for nutrition info, but I'd rather use a little full-fat dressing with natural ingredients rather than artificial low-fat stuff).

By the way, I second the suggestion of Dr. Andrew Weil's book!

Not sure about the name of the cookies, but I think the substance itself is called Hirschhornsalz in German. I remember seeing it in recipes my grandma had in a cookbook from Germany.

That's rough!

I'm not sure exactly what the specific restrictions of IBS are (lipids = fat, right?), but this Web site might be of use: http://www.fatfreevegan.com/
The originator's (I think she's from Louisiana, too) Web site is http://blog.fatfreevegan.com/
There are probably a lot of recipes you could adapt from those and change the spices as needed.

Can you eat fruit and tomatoes? If you can, you might be able to use salsas (using the term loosely) for flavor - say, tomato + avocado, mango + avocado, etc. without adding a lot of spice.

Do fresh herbs count as spices? Putting some fresh cilantro, basil or parsley in a dish adds a lot of flavor.

Hope you feel better soon!
6  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: breakfast ideas?? on: July 17, 2008 10:23:39 AM
My daughter and I are not too hot on a lot of breakfast foods on a daily basis either. We often eat heated up leftovers or boil up some frozen Asian dumplings. How about soup when it's cold outside? Or just a plate of cut-up fruit/vegetables with some cheese and toast/crackers? I also make simple breakfast burritos with whole wheat tortilla, beans and cheese (and salsa).

Just a note on Marmota-B's recipe: E. European cottage cheese is most closely approximated in the US with "farmer's cheese." I would maybe suggest white whole wheat flour to replace the "rough" flour (in German I believe this is called "griffig").

Marmota - I am Latvian, although I don't live there. Those Kārums treats are incredibly good! We are fortunate to be able to get a version of them in the Chicago area where there are a lot of E. Europeans. Thanks for the recipes - made me hungry!

Um, Asian cooking is a huge topic.  Can you narrow it down a bit?  Indian?  Sri Lankan?  Thai?  Pakistani?  Middle Eastern?  Turkish?  Japanese?  Chinese?

Ha ha! That's true. Even "Chinese" and "Indian" cooking are incredibly huge topics in and of themselves. Hopefully my links above will help the OP delve in.

Oh, I forgot Indian! Anything by Madhur Jaffrey is good.

Here are some sites and books to get you started. I also enjoy cooking different Asian cuisines, and I find that these have been helpful in getting to know the ingredients and techniques.
