Dining News: Sac Bee Critic on ‘The best meal I have had in ages’ Tue, 24 Nov 2015 05:15:00 +0000 ]]> 0 Chinese Style Spaghetti Squash Soup (No Fin Soup) Tue, 24 Nov 2015 01:06:47 +0000 Here’s a simple soup to help use up those ubiquitous spaghetti squash this time of year. Also what better use of the Thanksgiving turkey bones most of us will have later this week than to make some broth that can be used in this recipe? Start by partially cooking the spaghetti squash. I like to wash it, then pierce the skin all over with the tip of a paring knife. Place it in the microwave and cook it on high for 5 minutes. This softens the squash up just enough to make cutting it open lengthwise easier. Pull out all the seeds and rinse both halves out. Place in a small pan, cut side down. Add about 1/2″ water to the pan and bake at 400 degrees F for about 30 minutes, or until it is just soft enough to scrape the strands out with a fork. A good homemade base bone broth like from my rotisserie chicken soup will give the most depth of flavor, but if you don’t have time, doctoring up some good quality boxed broth will still yield tasty results. While the squash is baking, place the boxed broth, sliced ginger root, the mushroom stems and any green […] ]]> 0 Vegan Tuesdays at Capitol Garage Mon, 23 Nov 2015 08:02:00 +0000 0 Dining News: Owners of The Cinders to Open Oak Park Taqueria Mon, 23 Nov 2015 06:49:51 +0000 0 Skinny Pumpkin Spice Kettle Corn Mon, 23 Nov 2015 05:23:34 +0000 {continue reading}]]> 0 Peanut Butter Cup Cake Roll Sun, 22 Nov 2015 11:00:47 +0000 WHY did it take me so long to make a peanut butter cake roll??!!
