Hi, I don't follow any lifestyle sites but I'm very curious, hope we get some interesting responses. As far as cooking I have many, but most are not strictly vegetarian. A recent addition to my cooking guides is sanjeevkopoorkhazana on Youtube at
Although they do have meat and fish recipes, they have plenty of really good vegetarian dishes and I really like the chefs (assuming you like Indian food). My Indian food cooking kick has prompted me to get my saffron crocus hugelkultur patch going. Fresh saffron yum.

So I go to buy tahini...and the store doesn't sell pita bread. I need all the help I can get out here in the country. Lol. Thanks, Rick, I will check that out.

Oh, saffron. I have been dreaming about that for awhile now. I love it in paella. There are several threads about saffron crocus on Permies.

Hi, I would be gad to help. Naan (indian/middle east , etc., bread) is the a staple of the cuisine, and is combined with other ingredients and served as a dish, so its best to learn to make your own naan. Its very easy. In fact basic bread is not as hard to make as many think. With indian it is all about the spice and herbs I can send you links for spice websites and remember many spices are dry seed, root and herb. My herb garden produces not just leafy herbs but roots and thigs like fennel seed, mustard seed, and coriander , etc., perfect for this type of cuisine. Great spice shop..... http://www.kalustyans.com/default.asp and http://www.penzeys.com/cgi-bin/penzeys/shophome.html

I am slowly adding more recipes to this but there is some activity. Also going to use fresh homegrown ingredients this season.

This is a link to my blog;

Happy eating!

Hello,
By far my favorite YouTube site is Manjula's Kitchen.
Her recipes are easy to follow and she lists her ingredients.
Enjoy: http://www.youtube.com/user/Manjulaskitchen?feature=g-high-u

Somebody mentioned Naan:

Hi, I live in a rural areas too, and I have to go to a city to get tahini. I collect vegan and vegetarian cookbooks. I try to learn one new recipe at a time, but I am not a cook by nature. I don't think cooks realize how valuable they are in a community!!! everybody loves to eat. I'm no cook, but I get a few recipes going. For ex., lately I am experimenting with Thai coconut/lime flavor. [You can use it with tahini and yogurt on slaw, or Tamari]Meanwhile, I continue to search for local herb substitutes.
An old history book says the native Americans were gourmet cooks comparable to the French. What happened? They must have lost all their recipes. Perhaps we can discover their old secrets anew.

Nope. I think recipes and cookbooks are over-rated. Throw some vegetables into a frying pan with some oil, cook it on high heat and you have a stir-fry. Throw some vegetables in a pot with some liquid, simmer it for a while and you have a soup. Add some thickener and you have a stew. Cook the vegetable in the oven and you have roasted vegetables... Use whatever you harvested today, or whatever was available at the farmer's market last weekend. Change the ingredients seasonally. Easy as can be. Never boring. Always perfect.

This is my current favorite. Lots of roasted squash, and I recently discovered roasted Jerusalem Artichokes.
