About this Cook
Mom of 2 veg boys and married to a veghead husband. We love experimenting in the kitchen together!
My favorite things to cook
I invented a vegan chili in college and have since perfected it. It is my go to dish when cooking for meat-eaters.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We always have homemade birthday cakes and are always trying new flavors.
My cooking triumphs
6 tier wedding cake!! Also, recently pulled off my first tasty lentil loaf.
My cooking tragedies
I accidentally spilled salt in a dish I was making for my husband while we were dating (then meat-eater), and didn't realize how bad it was because I couldn't taste it!
