Sentient Broccoli

New food blog! Peach Cobbler! Exclamation point!

A couple of friends have been hassling me for a while to start a food/cooking blog, and I've finally done it! Now that there are a few entries up, I'm even ready to tell people about it. :) I know there are tons of cooks here far more talented than I am, but I'm hoping to still have some appeal. You can find it at, or you can subscribe to the RSS-LJ feed, frog_food.

And for a little taste, the latest entry was Peach Cobbler:

cake and red or green sauce

I have two questions.

First thing is an easy cake frosting that I can make that is not sickly sweet? I usually make the stuff from the organic boxed cake mix line. I just don't like how sweet it is. I also like the thought of a cake galze of sorts.

I am looking for an easy red or green sause to make for burrittos and such. Store bought is also OK! We went out to eat the other day and the vegan burrito was covered in a red sauce. It was the best part of the meal. Never will go there agin...Found out the place dog fights in the back. My mother informed me she called the cops on them before.

cauliflower soup

Now that fall is here (I live in Florida... who am I kidding?) I've been thinking a lot about soup so I got a head of cauliflower this weekend and made some delicious Cauliflower "cheesey" soup tonight.

1 head Cauliflower
2 scoops (or so) Nutritional Yeast
Green Onions
Salt n Peppa
I can of Veggie Broth

I boiled the cauli florets with some garlic cloves (about 5 or 6 but really you could use more) til they were tender and then I put most of them in the blender (leaving about 1/6 unblended for texture). As I was blending the cauli I added the veg broth little by little until the consistency was where I wanted it. Return the cauli to the pot and keep adding broth until it's as thick a youd like. Add chopped green onions, more garlic if you'd like and two scoops or so of nutritional yeast. Spice it to your liking and there ya go! Mine turned out pretty darn hearty and yummy... but I'm a huge soup person. Hope you enjoy.
