Sorry to interrupt the cookbook countdown...but!

Bravo called me (for real!) and asked me if I wanted to audition for a new cooking/competition show they've got brewing.

(I said yes)

and in my interview, I totally said I wanted to make Anthony Bourdain eat tofu.

Cookbook Countdown: 20 Days to Go: Mushroom Burgers

Posted by: Lindsay S. Nixon |

If a picture is worth 1,000 words, than I don't think I need a blog post about this recipe! ;-)

Thick, meaty and juicy, these burgers will kick the pants off any old frozen veggie burger! And although they're made fresh, they come together really easy--mix a few ingredients together, shape into patties and cook! (They can be baked, pan fried in a non-stick or grilled). It's so easy!

They also store well in the fridge and heat to perfection in the oven (or toaster oven). We've been eating these burgers non-stop since we moved to St. Maarten -- they are the perfect lunch on a hot summer day. I love taking them to BBQs and serving them up with all the trimmings... in fact, I served these burgers on the 4th of July and Memorial Day weekend last year!

These mushroom burgers are Scotts favorite burgers, too. He previously was obsessed with the vegan veggie burger at Johnny Rockets...but said this weekend he actually likes these better! Woohoo!

Cookbook Countdown: 21 Days to Go: Garden Chowder

Posted by: Lindsay S. Nixon |

One cold night in December 2009, I stood in my tiny NYC kitchen wondering what I'd make for dinner that night. I had so little on hand but it was just too cold to consider going back out.

Scott asked if I could make Veggie Biscuit Pot Pie, which would have been perfect for such a bone-chilling night, but sadly, I was all out of flour. 

That's when I resolved to make a soup that tasted like pot pile filling. I started with a soy milk base, then added all the vegetables we had. I then tasted and tweaked the seasonings as I went.. and even used one seasoning that seems odd but really pulls the whole thing together!

The end result is one of my all-time favorite soups. I could seriously eat this chowder every day of the week. It's healthy, easy, nutritious... you'll love it!
