feed me VEG: Stuffy Tomatoes

Hi. I’m Mrs. Tasty. I would like to thank the earthlings at feed me kc for having me. I’ve come from my Vegetarian Space Station to share with the people of Kansas City and beyond my kick-ass, dope-as-hell vegetarian recipes. You see, I come from a place where my people don’t eat things that can […]

Panzanella, ella, ella. Eh, eh, eh.

As I’ve mentioned before, my Italian is a wee bit weak. But that doesn’t stop me from trying. For example, I’m pretty sure panzanella translates to “totes delish summer bread salad”–pane being Italian for “bread” and zanella translating to “totes delish summer salad.” Or something like that. Panzanella Make this salad while you still can (while tomatoes are in […]

Off the Vine BLT Salad

Tomato season has arrived — tomatoes transforming from bland ruddy spheres of mealy awfulness into gnarly, kaleidoscopic orbs of cravable awesomeness. To celebrate, I offer forth this simple variation on BLT salad: still-warm-from-the-sun tomatoes, spicy wild arugula, crispy thick-cut bacon, creamy cheese of goat, and a mustardy balsamic vinaigrette. And if you’re one of those […]

End Times Tomato Extravabonanza

The inaugural, and inevitably final, feed me kc “End Times Tomato Extravabonanza” continued this weekend with another wallet-busting trip to the farmers’ market ($45 in tomatoes, please) and gin-fueled evenings in the kitchen. Saturday I was craving scallops — something that has rarely occurred after I made myself sick on undercooked frozen Costco scallops in […]

Okay, it’s not actually National Fried Eggs, Tomatoes, Asparagus, Mozzarella, Kale Pesto, and Toast Day. That, of course, is in September (not really). But this is what I had for breakfast today because that’s pretty much all […]

You Say Gazpacho (I Also Say Gazpacho)

One of the nice things about Hell encroaching on Earth is that tomatoes have arrived early! Unfortunately, it also means they won’t be around for long. Never one to dally in the face of impending doom, I’m cramming as much tomato fruit into my mouth as humanly possible. This, of course, includes plenty of BLTs […]

Sacred Shell Spaghetti

In my family, shell spaghetti is a sacred meal. It’s not sacred because we put a lot of time or Grandma’s canned tomato sauce into it. It’s sacred because at some point in my youth, it became tradition that my dad would make his shell spaghetti whenever the family got together — including every Christmas […]

My First Self-Righteous Salad Post

This morning, I stopped by my little plot of land at the 45th Avenue Community Garden. It was out of control! I had ripe cherry tomatoes, kale, green onions, mixed greens and a green pepper that was almost ready to harvest. I picked what I could, and even committed a little tomatocide for the sake […]

Steak goes on fire, beer goes in mouth

This fantastic spring weather makes me want to grill meat and drink beer — two things I’m trying to somewhat curb. But at the end of a long week, resolve extinguished, I eschew this feeble sham of self improvement and become the beer-chugging, meat-munching stereotype I feign to loathe. I’ll hate myself tomorrow, but I’m […]
