Tex-Mex Tabbouli

A delicious combination of grains and late-summer produce, this tasty salad will keep all week long. Tex-Mex Tabbouli I am notorious for not supplying my recipes to our supper club–though I promise to.  I love tabbouli, especially when there are fresh tomatoes.  This recipe is a riff off an old one I found in Bon […]

Morgan’s Magnificent Salad

Grandma’s Vegan Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

No, Grandma wasn’t vegan. She never even heard the word. However, that doesn’t mean her pie can’t decide to be. This strawberry rhubarb pie, adapted from an old-timey recipe, is the perfect evocation of sweet and sour. To make it easier on you, find a vegan pie crust. Don’t get me wrong…this isn’t health food.
