For the past week or so, I have been on a rice pudding kick. Maybe it's the cool spring weather (which still feels pretty wintery to me), or maybe it's just a comfort food craving. All I know is that I adore rice pudding. The recipe can be found on this site. Although I use hemp milk in the video recipe, soymilk is also delicious too.

Just that picture of local strawberries gets me all giddy. I think we've got another month or so to go, before local strawberries come into season. There is nothing so sweet as a freshly picked berry!

I can't help smiling as I see all of the beautiful blooming flowers. It feels as if spring has sprung, even if the calender doesn't say so yet.

Along with all of the beautiful blooms, spring has sprung around our kitchen as well. We're back to filming and creating recipes, all of which I can't wait to share. We've been filming for both the membership and public side of the site.

I have been meaning to review this cookbook for a little bit now. As someone who has literally hundreds of cookbooks (maybe 400 to 500, or so), I have become pretty picky about adding a new book to my shelves. Well The Urban Vegan Cookbook (by Dynise Balcavage) has not only been added to the collection, but moved into my kitchen so I can cook from it.

Every now and then, I love to go back through recipes that I haven't made in a while. That's exactly what I did with these hotcakes. You can find the recipe here on the site. They are super fluffy, and just what the doctor ordered on a chilly morning. You can completely customize this recipe by making a few tweaks here and there. Use 100% whole wheat or all-purpose flour (instead of using half and half)), or use half whole grain spelt flour and half white spelt.

I have been wanting to really dealve into gluten-free baking for a long while now. Of course, life always gets in the way, and before you know it a year has past.

I really can't believe that it's already 2010. Wow! Time has been just flying by.

I know that I haven't been blogging as much lately, which is mostly due to the new food cart. But now that it's up and running, I'm hoping to have a little more time to get back into the blogging grove.

I hope that everyone had a fabulous holiday, and is having a great new year!

Everyday Dish TV has been nominated for a Tasty Award. But, here's the catch. We need your votes to win. We're up against some pretty tough competition, and we need all the votes we can get! Can you vote for us?

To vote, go to www.tastyawards.com, and click on the "awards" tab at the top. Scroll towards the bottom of the page to the catagory of "Best Chef In A Series". The voting button is right below our catagory. I'm not sure why they don't include a direct link to vote, but that's the way they're doing it.

I was teaching a cooking class last night, and started sharing menu and recipe ideas for Thanksgiving. This is definitely one holiday that can throw people for a loop, whether they're a newbie to vegetarian cooking, a newbie to cooking or just at a loss as to what to serve. Since Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, I love to share ideas and recipes. I soon realized that all of my recipe suggestions are available here on Everyday Dish (in one form or another).

So, here you go dear reader. A list of some delectable recipes which are perfect for your Thanksgiving meal.

As someone who is gadget crazy, I'm always searching for the next cool product. The problem is, not all new things pass the muster. First off, it has to serve a purpose, not just be another large tool to cram into my over-stuffed drawers and cabinets. Next up, the tool has to work well, be well-constructed and well designed. It also must call out to me, or else there's no way that I will remember to pull it out of said over-crowded drawers to use it. Period. So, as you can see, I'm a pretty tough and jaded critic.
