food, glorious food :: a photo essay

Curried Couscous Salad. The recipe will appear in next month's GRID magazine...



Oatmeal-Raisin Cookies...Slightly chewy, slightly crunchy.



Lemon Poppyseed Muffins...They're a classic for a reason.



Easy Roasted Asparagus. The recipe will appear in my upcoming cookbook, The Urban Vegan: 250 Simple, Sumptuous Recipes, From Street Cart Favorites to Haute Cuisine ...



Zucchini Bread from the cookbook...The recipe makes 2 large loaves, but I made a mama loaf and 2 baby loaves.


Blood oranges. Their flavor is much milder than you would guess from their sanguine hue.



Pakoras and Samosas, Indian Grill, West Chester, PA...I love this restaurant.




General Tso's Tofu at Shiao Lan Kung in Chinatown... Good-n-greasy-n-spicy.

I'm a vegan student at West Chester University, and I'm thrilled to see you've found the Indian Grill there - it's excellent! Kooma, a Japanese restaurant in West Chester, also offers a plenitude of tasty vegan options!

Ooooh . . . that tofu looks fantastic! Sometimes greasy and spicy is just what one needs, eh?

P.S. That couscous salad looks fantastic!

That couscous salad looks so good.

Slightly crunchy, slightly chewy = perfect in oatmeal cookies.

And you know I love that asparagus.

Wish I could try the tofu!
