Shrimp Tacos and Chocolate Pudding

Sounds funny – I know. But when someone asked me what I planned to do on V-day – I told them. Make Shrimp tacos and afterwards chocolate pudding. So here we go. What are your plans for V-day?

Food: Feta Pan Fried and Honey Drizzle

I was introduced to Halloumi cheese while in England last year, and since then I slice the cheese, and pan fry them to add to my Mediterranean salad.

This film is a documentary style of a story so familiar to those interested in fame and not so much.

So, tonight, I am aiming for burrito at home – but a vegetarian one – not with tofu as this recipe suggests but with grilled-in-the-oven diced cauliflower.   Recipe ½ cup onions, chopped 4 cloves garlic, chopped 1 package extra-firm tofu  ( using cauliflower in stead for my recipe) 1 can pinto beans, rinsed and drained 1 cup cooked quinoa 1 tablespoon chili powder 1 tablespoon ground cumin 2 teaspoons dried oregano 2 teaspoons tamari 2 tablespoons lime juice 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast  (omitting for my recipe) pinch of salt as needed to serve: burrito-style whole wheat …
