About this Cook
I am a physicist who works as an engineer. I am vegetarian. Before I had kids, I enjoyed cooking elaborate meals-after the fourth child, I gave up on fancy and I'm happy if people don't complain. My husband also does alot of cooking, but doesn't cater to everyone as much.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake bread. I love to make Christmas cookies and soups. I suppose I'm into comfort foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Everyone in the family likes something different. We have one son who is vegan, I am vegetarian and the rest are omnivores. We have a hard time finding anything everyone will eat so we make mix and match dinners.
My cooking triumphs
Following the Gourmet Magazine Thanksgiving for vegetarians and also making a turkey and having it all go well and be enjoyed by well-behaved kids.
My cooking tragedies
The vegan pumpkin pie last year-never again...we make raspberry crisp or something that tastes less different that expected when made vegan.

Vegan Cream 'Cheese' Frosting
I substituted vanilla bean for vanilla and added a couple of tablespoons soy milk to get a good texture-didn't use soy flour.

Currant Scones
Great scones-I veganized it by using Earth Balance Butter and soy milk with a tablespoon of vinegar for the buttermilk.

Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler
My family loved this. I added an extra cup of strawberries out of the garden, sugar was just right. Made it vegan easily with vegan butter.
