    The last thing I need is another food blog in my RSS reader, but I couldn't resist. The recipes look great and the author writes just enough commentary to be fun without being distracting. I also like her weekly meal plans.

    The only thing that bugs me is that she includes fish as "vegetarian". It just isn't. It's pescetarian. Yes, fish is pareve, but it's not vegetarian and this has led to some uncomfortable incidents for me in the past.

      Cloggie Girl,

      True, and yet vegetarian in the frum world is pretty widely understood as eats milchigs; eats fish but not chicken or meat.

        Yes. I have gone from letting hosts know that I'm "vegetarian" to saying "vegetarian, no fish." The milchigs thing has confused even a relatively long-term friend of mine who invited me over for specifically vegetarian shabbat dinner. She was so excited as she brought out...tuna noodle casserole. It was another meal of steamed veggies, salad, challah, and salatim for me.

          I received a tuna noodle casserole as a dish when we moved in somewhere once. It was really disappointing. I am also confused as to why she eats fish, but I think I remember reading about the reasons once in her postings maybe.... Either way, it is mostly veggie and really good :)
