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 :(
