About this Cook
I teach first grade. I spend a lot of time figuring out different ways to reach my students. I have lived in the Columbus area my whole life, and absolutely love it here. I have a great family and group of friends. Life is good.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook soup. I am constantly reworking the recipes I've tried and have had some successes. I've also had some failures. It's important to me that the people I feed are happy, and for the most part they are.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love the feeling of cooking in the fall. The season is changing, the produce that is available is perfect for comfort food, and I am completely nostalgic for that time of year.
My cooking triumphs
You know, I can make a pretty good batch of homemade granola, so I would say that making granola has been my most recent triumph.
My cooking tragedies
I had some unfortunate leek scenarios. And eggplant and I have not fared well.

Vegan Split Pea Soup I
This is a fantastic recipe. I altered a few things, based upon what other reviewers have written. I used olive oil to saute the onions, celery, and bay leaves (I used three). Then I added the peas, water, and the spices. I ended up using about 12 cups of water total. I simmered this for about 2 hours, and then added the carrots. Within 20 minutes, the carrots were cooked through! (I didn't have barley or potatoes, so I left those things out.) I garnished with some green onion slices, and I am now eating some of the best soup I've had in a long time. Great recipe Deborah!!!
