About this Cook
I live in Portland, OR with my boyfriend, two cats and our dog. I have been a vegetarian since 2002, and enjoy finding new and creative ways to make meatless meals.
My favorite things to cook
Soups, stir-frys and lots of veggies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
All the women in my family are great cooks, and I learned a lot about cooking from them. A lot of the recipes I use today I ate growing up.
My cooking triumphs
Mastering fake tuna fish sandwiches!
My cooking tragedies
Baking a layered cake for a friend's birthday. There was raspberry jam filling between the layers, and an hour after the cake was finished, the jam started oozing out the sides and bottom of the cake, turning it into a soggy mess. I temporarily swore of baking after that.

Chicken Pot Pie IX
I admit, I'm not the biggest pot pie fan. But, when my boyfriend requested chicken pot pie for his birthday dinner, how could I refuse? And, for not really being a pot pie fan, I have to say - this was really good (and the boyfriend was VERY happy). We're vegetarian, so I used Quorn Chik'n Tenders instead of chicken. Otherwise I followed the recipe closely, making only a couple adjustments based on the reviews. I added: an extra cup of veggie broth to the sauce (I agree with the other reviewers that it would have been too dry without extra liquid), diced new potatoes, 2 cloves of garlic, and a 1/4tsp each of dried parsley and italian herbs. With these few changes, this recipe is perfect!

Mexican Casserole
This recipe is really easy, makes for good leftovers and my boyfriend LOVED it. Modified slightly to our tastes by adding jalepenos and black olives.

Triple Berry Crisp
YUM! I've always thought that crisp topping was the best part, so I love that this recipe doubles the topping. I thought the bottom part would get soggy, but it stayed firm and made dishing out servings easy. I used 4 bags of frozen berries (half blueberry, half blackberry), and drained them really well. I only used 1 cup of butter. I think the recipe could stand to use more cinnamon and nutmeg, will increase those ingredients next time around. So tasty, very easy to make.
