Jicama Slaw and Infrequently Asked Questions

I’ve been doing some housekeeping on the blog lately so soon my recipe tab will be updated (it hasn’t been for like 8 months) and there will be a whole new tab: Infrequently Asked Questions.

You know how bloggers get asked SO many questions that they simply must write up a “Frequently Asked Questions” post? Well, I don’t get asked questions frequently.  Certainly nothing like big bloggers get.

How did you get those abs???

How long have you been vegan/vegetarian/fruitarian/dairy free/gluten free/soy free/carb free/ fat free/paleo/flavor free???

How do you manage to blog, work, marathon race, tend your garden, tend your pony, cook, clean, pleasure your hubs, bring your kiddos to soccer practice, and be skinner than all the other soccer moms there???

Given that I’m very unexciting, I don’t get asked questions very often. Obviously, I don’t blame you. My pony might.

So instead, I give you some “Infrequently Asked Questions”.

There are hundreds of food blogs! Foodbuzz has over a million blogs as featured publishers. Why do you think you are different?

I don’t.

There must be SOMETHING you about you that you think makes you stand out from the crowd!

I think I’m the only featured publisher that has written the word “vagina” and listed a recipe in the same post.

Whats your “fear food”?


What would you like to see more of in the world?

Cankle tattoos.

What is your favorite workout?

Counting, which I guess you might as well call “lazy calisthenics” .

What is your shoe size?

5 1/2 if I’m in the US, but I grow to a 36 when I go to Europe!

Why doesn’t your blog have a facebook page?

I don’t really know. I’ve just never woken up and said, “You know what? I really think my blog should have a facebook page today.”

Have you got something against Facebook? Are you too good for the rest of us who might want to “Like” you on Facebook?

Not particularly. Why are you so hot for my blog to have a facebook page?

I’ll ask the questions, if you don’t mind.


Why are you apologizing?

Jewish guilt I guess.

Wait, your Jewish? How Jewish are you?

I would be very unsafe in the case of a Nazi invasion but for sure have my way with ham and pork.

How do you get the smell of butt out of a chair?

A “Butt” Plug?

That’s nasty! Do you think your funny or something?

Yes, but I find I think I’m the only one. I sometimes find myself driving, alone, I’ll fart, and all of a sudden burst out in laughter because no one but me has to suffer the smell of my poo particles.

Thats gross. I think you try too be funny and you do it for attention….

Aren’t you supposed to be asking questions?


I think we’re done here.

So….do you have any infrequently asked questions you want to answer? or ask? lets make the comment section exciting today.

For our edible portion of the post, we have one of my favorite vegtables. Jicama! I love to use it in slaws instead of cabbage because as wonderful as raw cabbage is, it does borrible things to the whole “Gee, this chair smells like butt!” problem.

  • 1 large jicama, peeled, then julienned (thinly sliced) or grated (I used a grater)
  • 1  red or or orange  bell pepper, julienned (you can used any color pepper you prefer)
  • 3 small Persian cucumbers sliced thin (I actually used  a peeler to get them super thin)
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • juice of  one lime
  • Pinch of cayenne
  • 1 tbs peanut butter (or 2 tbs peanut flour if your afraid of fat for some reason)
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk or water (I used coconut milk)
  • pinch of sugar, sweetener of choice, or a squeeze of honey

Pretty simple. Just prep all the veggies, whisk the dressing ingredients and pour.

    • Maybe I’m super naive but I don’t even know who the big bloggers are??? I guess its up to you to do it for me. I do hope the pioneer woman takes a peek because I have a girl crush on her. Dead serious.

  1. Haha you used “vagina” “poo particles” and “cankles” in the same post- that’s why I love your blog. I LOLd quietly so as not to wake mr smoothiegirl but I did laugh thru the whole freakin post.

    Infreq. Asked Q: Why do you spend an inordinate amount of time blogging about your cats? A: They are more smart, interesting and fun than many people I know. (present company excepted of course)

    • Oh dear, I can never LOLZ quietly! I’d make a terrible wife.

      Um, yea, ellie’s glamorous life is way more interesting. I worship her in the way big bloggers have all those little worshipers. My main goal in life is to eat, sleep, move, and look like ellie. You know me, pussy lover that I am.

  2. I’m pretty sure I’ve used the word vagina in a recipe post as well. If not, then definitely penis.

    Great idea on the jicama slaw. One of my friends cannot go near cabbage, and I’m forwarding this to her. Thanks Eden. 🙂

  3. There are no words? I’m glad I’m not the only one who think farting is funny. (that would be my 12 year old’s sense of humor) I recently bought jicama to make a jucama/grapefruit/carrot salad which was good… but it called for fish sauce and I just can’t into that taste. Hopefully my leftover jicama will taste better in your recipe. 😉

  4. aw man — I have a tab with the exact same title. I’m pretty sure everyone will think I copied it from you know…since I’m a li’l blog compared to your cool self.

    At least I guess I know I was clever at the time, since great minds think alike?

  5. aw man — I have a tab with the exact same title. I’m pretty sure everyone will think I copied it from you now…since I’m a li’l blog compared to your cool self.

    At least I guess I know I was clever at the time, since great minds think alike?

  6. I love jicama! It has the best crunch. Plus, its sort of like a potato to me (I , ahem, kind of enjoy eating a bit of raw potato when I chop them. people give me odd looks for this, I think they are boring people).

    I don’t have any good questions, I guess I need some rest haha!

  7. “I think I’m the only featured publisher that has written the word “vagina” and listed a recipe in the same post.”


    i am going to start doing that from now on, by the way. and you know what that is.

  8. I cried a little. My husband didn’t realize I was even reading a blog because no one usually makes me laugh that much. Excuse me, I mean, the huzbs.

    Love the idea of the this recipe too. Cabbage and me don’t get along too well in the raw state. Thanks for the jicama idea.
