About this Cook
I'm a 23 year old graduate student majoring in English. I have a wonderful fiance, great parents, and a fantastic younger sister, as well as the sweetest (all rescued!) dogs and cats :)
My favorite things to cook
My family and I are vegetarians, so every meal I make is meatless. I love coming up with new ways to use fake meat products and tofu! I also LOVE making desserts! My favorite foods are: red grapes, mushrooms, dark chocolate, fresh pineapple, green grapes, strawberries, blueberries, peaches, raspberries, cheesecake, broccoli, salad, eggplant, nuts, kidney beans, macaroni and cheese, spinach, apples, and walnut brownies :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sticky Buns for breakfast Christmas morning. I LOVE them!!
My cooking triumphs
Finally learning how to cook tofu so that it comes out nice and crispy- great for Honey Sesame Tofu.

Raspberry and Almond Shortbread Thumbprints
This was great!! added a few extra TB of flour, baked at 340 for 13-14 minutes. Froze each batch for about 10 minutes before baking to help retain shape. Used a sterilized chapstick top to make 'thumbprints.' Used strawberry jam. Did not use sugar/milk drizzle.

Pumpkin Cheesecake II
This is the best cheesecake I've ever had!!!! I used gingersnaps for the crust in place of graham crackers. Was a huge hit at Thanksgiving. Everyone loved it. Thanks for the amazing recipe!

Healthy Banana Cookies
I was excited to try these--I had some leftover bananas and was tired of banana nut bread. I left out the dates because I had none, used apple sauce instead of oil, and added cinnamon; for half of the batch I added chopped apples. They baked in 22 minutes and were certainly healthy, but not very flavorful. I was baking them to give as a gift, which I still did, but I decided to make some chocolate chip cookies to go with them just in case. Maybe next time I could try adding nuts and more spices.
