About this Cook
I am a vegetarian chef. I love to be outside and spend time with my family. I love animals and own a personal zoo. I have been cooking since I was a child. I loved to bein the kitchen with my mother and it rubbed off on me and I decided to go to cooking school at 18.
My favorite things to cook
anything asian inspired. all kinds of beans, soups stews in winter. fresh raw salads in summer. bbq seitan with my own sauce for my husband..
My favorite family cooking traditions
toasted barley with onions. kasha with mushrooms. fake chicken soup. fake turkey tettrazini. spinach quiche.
My cooking triumphs
Even though I have been cooking for so long I love coming up with "garbage meals" I love using whatever is in the house and coming up with the most delicious dishes. They usually end up being a big hit.
My cooking tragedies
I am not a very good baker. I hate to measure. I made cornbread one time without measuring anything and added so much baking soda it tasted like sucking on pennies :(

Surprise Banana Cake
i was looking for an easy banan cake that i could make with ingredients i already had in the house. this one seemed the best option. i only had three bananas but they were large. i didnt add walnuts, instead i added chopped chocolate and dried cranberries. i used coconut extract instead of vanilla. the result was good. very moist and flavorful. you could definitely taste the bananas.

Stir and Drop Sugar Cookies II
I followed this recipe exactly. I was a little nervous about the batter being so soft and gooey but they actually baked up beautifully. Almost like a snickerdoodle, very cake-like. I wouldn't use this recipe again but it was a good alternative when all other recipes called for shortening.

The best wintertime meals need a long, slow simmer while you're doing something else.
