I’m experimenting with PB2 powdered peanut butter today. Here’s my first recipe, for some spicy peanut sauce. This would go well on chicken tenders. Ingredients 4 Tbsp peanut butter powder 3 Tbsp water 1 Tbsp soy sauce 1 Tbsp sriracha 1 Tbsp rice vinegar Put it in a bowl and stir it all together. There’s… Continue reading spicy peanut sauce
One nice thing about being out of work is I have lots more time to experiment in the kitchen. A few days ago I made “two-ingredient dough” for the first time. I made two batches, enough to make homemade bagels one day, with lots left over for another day. Today was that other day, and… Continue reading chocolate pizza
I made bun bo hue. It was delicious.
Since this past spring, I’ve been working to arrange composting at my condominium complex. And this week it starts to pay off. Denver Compost Collective is an organization that collects food waste from apartment dwellers and takes it to their large scale composting facility.

Todd’s Cranberry Ginger Relish Recipe This started as a recipe I found online and made for Thanksgiving sometime around 2000, and I’ve made it several times since then, slightly simplifying and improving it along the way. It’s fresh, vegan, gluten-free, and tasty. It requires no cooking, unlike Martha Stewart’s similar recipe. Ingredients Cranberries Buy one 12-ounce… Continue reading Todd’s cranberry ginger relish recipe
It’s been a while since I posted a recipe. Well, actually, it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything here. But it’s time for a recipe. I like coffee. And I occasionally like chocolate. But I prefer good coffee and dark chocolate. Also, I don’t have an espresso machine at home, so I can’t make… Continue reading Todd’s makeshift mocha latte recipe
