The site was hacked again (cue: a GIANT sigh!) and I was at my wits’ end, trying to figure out how to get it back up. Then I met Mickey, and he helped me clean up the site. Actually, I couldn’t even get in to the site but he figured out a way to log in and clean it up. So here I am, breathing a long, deep breath of relief… Hmmmm. Thanks, Mickey!

Got Maria Speck’s Ancient Grains for Modern Meals from Amazon – excited! P and I are working on reducing wheat from our diet and I am looking at this book to provide me with options that go beyond brown rice, quinoa and millet. This is not a vegetarian cookbook but it has a lot of potential for cooking gorgeous vegetarian meals. The recipes sound so lip-smackingly delicious! Leek Salad with Grilled Halloumi Cheese and Rye Berries, Aroma Bread with Coriander and Fennel, Zucchini-Dill Bites with Pine Nuts, Artichoke-Rosemary Tart with Polenta Crust… Super tempting, to say the least. The lovely photographs don’t hurt either.

Injera Bread

Found Injera Bread at Dekalb Farmers Market last week. Good news for folks who eat gluten-free! Unfortunately, P is not a fan of fermented foods, so I passed it up. Curious to know if anyone has purchased it, and if so, what do you think? There are a couple of Ethiopian food joints in Atlanta that some friends have been recommending since a while. Time to plan a visit, I think!

Visited Harry’s Farmers Market a few weeks ago, and chanced on some new snacks! Gluten-free, healthy, non-diary… no matter what diet you follow, you should be able to find something fun to snack on. Take a look at my stash!

Popped potato chips, BBQ-flavored rice crisps, tapioca ridges with salt and pepper, Pamela’s Ginger Cookies (wrote about them on an earlier post) are all great to stave off the savory snack or sweet cookie craving!

Falafel Sandwich

Got a Falafel Sandwich from Star Provisions for lunch one day. I think it was the lone vegetarian item on the menu. Or maybe I am mistaken but there were few options.

It was fairly okay. The falafel was crisp and well-spiced. It was not greasy and held its heft despite the yogurt sauce. That being said, the sandwich felt a tad too monochromatic in flavor. Some parsley and lemon would have done wonders in there.

Finally visited Big Chow Grill! Have been wanting to go since a while now… I liked the place. Didn’t get too many nice pictures – I suppose a dedicated post is in order!
