About this Cook
I'm 24, soon to be 25 (Ja 13/09), and a vegan. I'm the only vegan in my family. I work in the accounting field, but my dream (if I win the lottery) is to open an organic/vegetarian/vegan health food store/lunch cafe. I don't currently travel, but another dream is take a road trip to California; and on the way, spend a night in a teepee at the Wigwam Motel.
My favorite things to cook
I like trying new things with tofu. Usually I take old recipies that I like and change them around to make them vegan. My Grandma does a lot of that for me as well, but her recipies always come out much better than mine ever will. I'm learning to work with yeast now, and it's nice reward when everything works and tastes great.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making Christmas cookies with my Gramma and then making the plates to hand out to her friends around town on Christmas Eve.
My cooking triumphs
All vegan: Shepherds Pie, Cabbage Rolls, Chili, Orange Chicken (tofu), General Tao Tofu, Kung Pow tofu, veggie burgers that actually stay together, bagels, buns, dinner rolls, curried butternut squash soup.
My cooking tragedies
Trying to proof yeast in a milk/butter/water mixture.

Shrimp with Lobster Sauce
I made this for my moms bday and everyone loved it. Very easy and uncomplicated. I used regular sherry instead of cooking, and I did add some green onions at the end of cooking, as some of the reviews suggested.

Chicken Paprikash II
I used olive oil instead of bacon grease, added in a chopped red pepper, used about a tbsp of red pepper flakes and 3tbsp of regular paprika, and 4tbsp of smoked (I couldn't find the real hungarian paprika in the area), and I used chicken broth in place of water. I also used this recipe for the dumplings

Orange Almond Biscotti II
Perfect! I use dried cranberries and usually leave out the almonds.
