I'm a vegetarian that loves to read recipes and cook. I've been using this site for years now and it has helped me so much, both the good and avoiding the bad through reader's reviews. Given that veg food is super expensive, I try to make most of it at home when I can, to be more healthy and more tasty and less expensive.
My favorite things to cook
Soup in the Winter. Smoothies in the Summer. My favorite lately has been a fried egg taco with beans, spanish rice, and hot sauce. Salads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My heritage is Polish so when I was younger, lots of Pierogis and Barscht.
My cooking triumphs
Lasagna, soup, meat eaters think I cook great. When I cook meat, I don't taset what I cook because I'm vegetarian. Last time I made beef stroganoff for the Honey, to see what he was raving about, I made a vegetarian beef stroganoff along side his with soy crumbles substitue. WOW was it delicious! I had it for dinner, breakfast, and lunch! Well, I guess anything with noodles, cream, butter, and sour cream has to taste good! Haven't made it since because it's too fattening for me. Anyway, I cook meat for the Honey because if I don't he will go out and eat beef sandwiches and fries everyday and spend too much money for food that he already bought but is not interested in cooking it or doesn't know how. Otherwise I would never cook meat because it's against what I believe in.
My cooking tragedies
I burnt 3 veggie burgers in a row in the past 3 days in the broiler. You would think I would learn the first time. I ate them anyway. Another tragedy: When I was little, I was making cheesecake for my brother's birthday but instead of putting in sugar, I put in salt (from a nonmarked container). The mistake was caught right away though, and the mix was dumped.
