Topics I've Started

Best-Kept Secrets: Nyc

14 August 2011 - 10:46 AM

Hullo all,

Planning a trip and would like to know what the best-kept secrets are and/or reliable standbys are. I'll be in morningside heights for a few days, and wandering around other neighborhoods for another few days.

Open to pretty much anything but prefer vegetarian and dairy-lite.

Feeding Sick Cat

15 July 2011 - 01:59 PM

Anybody got any suggestions? Tuna is barely interesting, and only earns a mouthful. Mackerel, salmon treats, and chicken broth didn't even get interest. Chicken breast is currently cooking, so that's on the list.

I think we're off to the vet er in the morning... as our vet can't do an ultrasound for two weeks. It feels absurd, but oh well.

Split Pea Falafel Recipe

15 June 2011 - 05:40 PM

225 g split peas (a little more than 1 US cup)
4 cloves garlic
1 onion, medium
3 T brown rice flour
4 t ground cumin
3 t dried majoram
1/2 to 1 t red pepper flakes
1 t sumac (or use some lemon juice)
1 t dried thyme
2 t baking powder
Oil, lots

Soak peas overnight or for at least 8 hours. Drain, and rinse.

Peel and trim the garlic and onions. Chop finely in a food processor. Add the split peas, herbs/spices, flour, and process until a paste. Add baking powder and pulse until well mixed.

Heat 1/2" oil in a frying pan until decidedly hot (you should see wavy lines in the bottom and things should sizzle when you add them). Shape patties (2" by 1/2" is what I made) and fry until browned on one side (took mine about 2 minutes). Flip, and fry until browned on the other side. It's like doing latkes-- you'll need to play with the heat to keep the oil hot but not burning them before they are cooked unless you're used to frying things. Remove, and drain on paper towels.

Optional: Fresh parsley is a must for some, and cilantro can also be used. If you don't like cumin, try coriander. I don't typically salt something like this, but feel free to add salt and pepper.

Blogging Advice Wanted

13 June 2011 - 05:14 PM

Hello all,

I initially started a blog when I had to communicate to friends and family what I could and was eating. It's actually turning into something I really enjoy, and I'm starting to feel the pull of marketing and getting readership. Experienced bloggers-- what did you do that worked really well? What was a waste of time?

Non-bloggers: what do you dislike seeing on blogs? What makes them worth returning to?

All advice and ideas appreciated!
