The Sharper Your Knife, The Less You’ll Cry

Being perpetually broke and terminally thrifty aren’t exactly qualities to brag about, but they have been an asset to my culinary creativity. When onions go on sale for $1 per 3 pounds, you’d better believe I’m already brainstorming ways to make them the foundation of my diet for the next few weeks. That is to say, sharpen your knifes and get ready to shed some tears; onions are what’s for dinner. Onions In The Spotlight Onions don’t get enough respect as vegetables, every bit as worthy of your attention as social media darlings like Brussels sprouts or kale. They’re the backbone of almost ev ..read more

The Food Of Love
Bitter Sweet

What makes a good Valentine’s Day recipe? For that matter, how do you really qualify a dish as being more romantic than the next? Anything made with love should count, whether that’s delicate heart-shaped ravioli or a giant pot of chili. Classic aphrodisiacs get a nod, for sure, whether or not they can actually influence a person’s immediate desires. Food itself is love. There’s an undeniable intimacy in preparing a meal for someone you love. It’s a vulnerable act, pouring your own hopes and tastes, energy and creativity into every chop, stir, and sauté. Ingredients meld with emotions, creati ..read more

Chili, nachos, and wings may be the reigning champs of Super Bowl snacking, but there’s a dark horse emerging from the sidelines to redefine the game. Hummus, rising through the ranks to become one of the top dips across the board, is slowly conquering sports bars and watch parties, too. Recent polls show that it’s already leading the pack in three states, with no doubt more to come. That’s a sure thing once you get the MVP of chickpea purees on the menu: Taro Hummus. More than a mere dip, it’s a touchdown for your taste buds. Forward Progress Tender steamed taro brings a whole new dimension ..read more

Meant To Be Broken
Bitter Sweet

Nothing is perfect, nothing is permanent, and nothing is fully complete. This is the definition of wabi-sabi, the wisdom that I try to live by, and also a fitting description of this blog. Now 18 years in, examples of each tenet can be found in abundance on these sprawling digital pages. I’ve been blogging here for over half of my life. 18 years is a long time for anything. If we were married, I’d give my dear BitterSweet Blog the gift of porcelain, a delicate, beautiful material symbolizing the care and attention needed to nurture a long-lasting relationship. Of course, with my lack of coordi ..read more

Moussaka Brouhaha
Bitter Sweet

2w ago
Stop calling moussaka “Greek lasagna.” There’s no pasta, no marinara sauce, and cheese is minimal, at best. Moussaka, the national dish of Greece, is so much more than another miscellaneous casserole. Complex and distinctive, no one would ever confuse the two if they ever had a taste. Tender eggplant supports the hearty and robust profile highly seasoned protein in a red wine-infused sauce, featuring onions, garlic, and aromatic spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. My small twist on tradition here is to skip the meat, of course, and opt for earthy, naturally beefy Sugimoto shiitake mushrooms inst ..read more

Soup Season
Bitter Sweet

“Soup season” is both deeply appealing and bothersome as a concept. As the chill of autumn descends and winter’s frosty breath blows in, there’s nothing quite like the warm embrace of a hearty bowl of piping hot soup. This is the “soup season” that captivates the imagination of hungry comfort-seekers everywhere, and yet, there are so many other days when soup is exactly what the moment calls for. What about those balmy spring days that call for light, fresh veggie blends? What about hot summer evenings when a crisp, chilled gazpacho is the only thing that can truly take the edge off?

Letter From The Editor
Bitter Sweet

For a kid that hated writing, I grew up into an adult that does a whole lot of it. Words, the basic building blocks of language that used to torture and taunt me, are now my primary creative currency. Writing doesn’t always come easily and certainly not effortlessly, but after all of these years, I’m amazed that I still haven’t exhausted my supply of them. Looking back on 2,500 blog posts to date, it’s stunning to think that I had so much to say. What’s more, I’m not even close to being done yet. Vegan Journal has been the home to many of my articles, but since spring of 2023, my connection h ..read more
