Hodgepodge of Southern Eats

I take pictures of most everything I eat. Sometimes those pics make it into a blog post, and sometimes they live on my camera's memory card never to see the light of cyberspace. Others get downloaded and saved for a day when I don't have anything new to post. Today's one of those days. It's been a busy, busy week with little time to cook (or work out! Eek!), so here are a few older pictures. All are photos of recipes that will be in my cookbook.

A few months ago, I re-tested my White Bean & Collard Green Soup. This hearty meal-in-a-bowl has all the whole foods that matter — beans, greens, and tomatoes. It's the perfect for crumblin' your cornbread into:

A couple weeks back, I tried my Tofu "Chicken" Pasta Bake one more time. Creamy quinoa pasta meets marinated "chicken-y" tofu, tomatoes, and a touch of nutritional yeast. Tasty casserole for cold winter days.

Over the weekend, I put the final touches on my Seitan 'n' Dumplins:

I've made this over and over again to get the dish where I wanted it, and my testers have offered invaluable advice. My mama's been making vegan dumplins for me for years, so I used her recipe as a base. But I added homemade "chicken"-flavored seitan, potatoes, carrots, and peas to create a full meal that trumps any chicken 'n' dumplins I ever tried in my meatier days.

You just described me. I have so many pictures on my computer which never saw the light of day. I am glad you were able to digg some of yours out! That soup looks tasty.

I love that you photograph everything you eat and save those photos for when you need a post. Brilliant idea! I need to start doing that too. Everything looks great, BTW.

I pretty much love anything with dumplings but I have to admit seitan is my favorite! That looks so good!
