  • La Pissaladière

    I’ve been wanting to try this “onion pizza” since the day I saw it on The Cooking Ninja’s blog. No sauce, no cheese, just a ton of caramelized onions, some herbs, tomatoes, and anchovies.

Lisa did, however, have the time to whip up this hearty, beany (ahem) chili last week. The recipe comes from Elise’s site, with a few small changes, as shown below: Spicy Vegetarian […]
