Seasonal Cooking: Summer Squash

These Mexican Veggie Stacks from Good Housekeeping deliver a heaping helping of chili-spiced, grilled vegetables, including fresh corn, tomatoes, onions, and zucchini.

It’s the end of summer squash season in Texas – and in lots of other places too – so I thought you might appreciate a round of some fantastic recipes that include this delicious, easy to cook ingredient.  You may already know that the term “summer squash” actually refers to a whole range of soft-skinned, fully edible squash.  There is a spectrum of varieties included under this heading, but most common in Texas are yellow summer squash and zucchini.

Part Two | A Vegetarian’s Guide to Houston Restaurant Week

Editors note:  Houston Restaurant Week, an annual dining event benefiting the Houston Food Bank, is upon us.  Running three weeks this year, August 1 – 21, 2010, participating restaurants throughout the city offer two-course lunches for $20 and three-course dinners for $35.  This is the second in a two-part series on vegetarian offerings during Houston Restaurant Week.

I really, really like Indian cuisine.  And I really, really, really like going to Indika.  The whole experience is heart warming for me.  The food is delicious and interesting, the warm colors in the dining room make for a fun experience and kind and knowledgeable service is greatly appreciated.  All this – and amazing food – makes me feel compelled to visit during the remainder of Houston Restaurant Week 2010.   Read More

Part One | A Vegetarian’s Guide to Houston Restaurant Week

Houston Restaurant Week 2010 started at the beginning of August.  But, despite the name, this foodie fun fest actually spans three weeks.  Houston Restaurant Week offers local vegetarians (and their dining companions) a slew of delicious – and well priced – offerings this year.  And, with expanded lunch offerings – and a portion of the proceeds benefiting the Houston Food Bank – there’s a lot of great places to grab a stellar meal for a song.

As a matter of fact, there are so many wonderful offerings on the Houston Restaurant Week menu, I have to break down the overview into multiple parts.  (And alphabetical listings to be fair!)
