About this Cook
I am 23. Married for 1 1/2 years to my friend of 10 years. We're expecting our first baby in April. And I've been a vegetarian/vegan my entire life!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook chinese food and middle eastern food the best. Vegetarianizing everything is fun to me!
My favorite family cooking traditions
That everything is tasty...not bland "healthy" food.
My cooking triumphs
I have had many cooking triumphs, thankfully, and am becoming known for my good "different" (ie: ethnic!) cooking...being in a small midwest town.
My cooking tragedies
I have only have had a few tragedies. Sadly, the last two times I made seitan with a certain kind of flour, it has been a total flop. But I'm forging onward!

Mexican Whole Wheat Flour Tortillas
I used olive oil instead of the shortening and added 1/2 tsp baking soda. Perfect! They roll out so easily.

Chef John's Macaroni and Cheese
Hooray for no processed cheese! I used mild and medium cheddar, but I did wish I had sharp on hand. I left out the nutmeg, since I don't like it in anything, except a dash in pumpkin pie. I used vegetarian Worcestershire sauce, cut down the cayenne a tad, used a little black pepper and Italian bread crumbs instead of panko (omitted the butter in that, just sprayed the top with oil). Next time I will use a little less salt and make more sauce. It does soak in when you bake it. I also think it would benefit from some sauteed onion. Love the additions of white pepper and thyme. I used a heaping 1/4 tsp of thyme and it was perfect! Yum!

Zucchini Herb Casserole
Wow! I didn't know a casserole could be this good and healthy! I was very impressed that the amount of rice was less than the veggies. I used fresh herbs (just doubled the amount) and only 1 cup of cheese. I believe it was cheesy enough with just one.
