Hi, I’m Sabrina from The Tomato Tart. Jerry and I have been working together in one form or another for quite a few years now and I’m happy to be guest posting on this awesome blog of his. When I went gluten free a year and a half ago, I knew I wasn’t going to […]
Hi, I’m Mary Guiver, the wine, beer, and spirits buyer for Whole Foods Market, specifically for the Northern California and Reno region. I’m contributing to Cooking Stoned to help consumers like yourself better understand the ever-changing landscape of sustainable food and drink. I’m going on my tenth year in the industry as a produce buyer, […]
Wait, before we get started. Yes I’m a documented meat lover and this site is dedicated to you wonderful veggies out there. That doesn’t mean that I don’t love a good meatless meal, though. In fact, I try to go meatless, and even vegan, whenever I can because it’s good for me, good for Momma […]
You’re gonna want to put your mouth on this, trust me. Yah, yah… that’s what she said; got it. But seriously, this jalapeno lemonade is spicy, tart and refreshing, making it perfect for the up and coming warm weather. Ingredients 8 Lemons 8 Limes 3 Cups Sugar 5 Cups Water 5 Jalapenos Printable View Yield: […]
Tasty, easy to make, and way better than your boyfriend. Yup, these tasty morsels will never let you down. Whether it’s the Guacamole Grilled Cheese or the Peanut Butter & Jelly French Toast Sandwich, these sandwich recipes are loads of fun on a bun! Well, when there is a bun… that is. So let’s get […]
I am still on my keeping it simple kick. Just like my “tomato bun” burger and my apple sandwich, this Gruyere & Caramelized Apple Waffle Sandwich is pretty simple. Using my sweet potato waffles, I made a “grilled cheese” sandwich you will LOVE. I did! Ingredients 1 sweet potato waffle 4 Ounces Gruyere, shredded 1 […]
This sweet potato waffle recipe comes to me from my good friend Dana Schnittman. If you have my cookbook, Dana is the naked chick. If you don’t have it… I bet you want it now! I’ve made a few adjustments to her original but both are amazing. Mmm! Ingredients 1 ½ Pounds Sweet Potatoes 2 Cups […]
In the tradition of simplicity, like I mentioned in my “tomato bun” burger recipe, it’s all about keeping it simple, stupid. The “stupid” being me! This apple peanut butter sandwich does just that. Also, it’s a gluten-free way to chow down a peanut butter sandwich. You could add jelly; you can add anything. This recipe […]
As much as I try to promote cooking, sometimes (most of the time)… I over-complicate things. So, in the spirit of simplicity, stick this Salt & Tomato Burger in your mouth! No, really… this recipe is an easy way to eat gluten free, whether it be your favorite burger or hot sandwich. More fun, less […]
This Friday I want to mix things up a little bit. Lately we’ve been reviewing sustainable wines and the occasional beer. But not all of you like to get down with the grapes and grains, oh no. Some of you out there like to fancy yourself to be a mixologist. Well if that’s the case, […]
There’s nothing petite about Petite Sirah, except for maybe the size of the grapes themselves. This dark, full bodied red wine can be quite sexy. The 2011 J. Lohr Petite Sirah has baked pie, blueberry, blackberry, cookie dough, and some lavender on the nose. That’s enough to make me hungry! On the palate I’m met […]
Confession… I am a Pinot whore. There, I said it and I only feel slightly dirty. And besides, my Pinot is bigger than your Pinot. The 2011 J. Lohr Fog’s Reach Pinot Noir has amazing aromas of forest floor, wet bark, and pepper. The palate was earthy, some dark red fruit, pepper, and a touch […]
I admit it, I really love sticking an egg in something. Oh, get your mind out of the gutter! But if you’ve seen my Avocado Fried Egg, Kale Baked Eggs or my Artichoke Baked Eggs, you know exactly what I am talking about. So an egg baked inside a muffin seems like the logical next […]
Lohr. Jerry Lohr. Kind of Bond-esque if you ask me. If you haven’t heard of J. Lohr Wines you may not be a wine lover. They are a big wine producer and have locations in the San Jose as well as right here in Paso Robles. You can find some of their wines in grocery […]
I simply love the idea of sneaking vegetables into popsicles. The idea of exploring veggies in a whole new way is sorta what this blog is about, right? So a Beet & Berries Popsicle is of no surprise, especially if you’ve had my Salted Celery Popsicle. Yum! Ingredients 1 Pound Strawberries 4 Ounces Raspberries ½ […]
Yesterday we celebrated the coming of Spring. Well, except for those unfortunate souls in the North and on the East Coast. But, we like to keep things positive on Fall Down Fridays so let’s look ahead to what Spring means. It means breezy days on the porch. It means going for picnics in the park. […]
You know what’s fun? Trying wines from wineries that you’ve never been to before. I had that opportunity with the 2011 Wente Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon. I’ve been getting back into Cab Sauv lately and this vino delivers at just $18.00 a bottle. I get aromas of dark fruit mostly but on the palate there’s cherry, […]
Oh sweet Merlot, how I love thee. I’ve heard many folks knock Merlot but I’m a fan. Some say Merlot’s bad rap come from the movie Sideways while others think it’s due to the cheap commercial Merlot that is everywhere. Regardless, this 2011 Wente Vineyards Merlot definitely says, “I’m a Merlot, he me roar.” There […]
Fresh asparagus, grilled, and then covered with a sweet and spicy soy sauce bursting with garlic and habanero pepper. This vegetarian recipe is the perfect way to celebrate spring. Try this sauce on egg rolls and pot stickers too!
Did someone say Pinot? Well hot damn, count me in. As you may know from reading these wine reviews, I am an unashamed Pinot Noir whore. And just to clarify, whore does not mean snob. Bring on the Pinot. This 2010 Wente Vineyards Pinot Noir really surprised me. Yummy aromas of dried fruit, pepper, earth, […]
