About this Cook
I'm a vegan and recent Texas transplant who loves cooking for my amazing girlfriend and dog. I cook on an almost daily basis and thoroughly enjoy getting creative with dishes and even if they don't quite work out, it's a great learning experience, right?
My favorite things to cook
Vegan and vegetarian dishes, casseroles, mexican fusion, firey tex-mex, hearty oriental cuisine, thai and indian dishes, and I'm just starting to dabble in baking and pressure cooking...
My favorite family cooking traditions
Watching my mom run laps around the kitchen before any family event and, despite constant woes of catastrophe, pull off the most amazing meals I've ever had.
My cooking triumphs
I've been working on fine tuning a vegan pot-pie recipe that will send any omnivore to their knees in ecstacy. :-)
My cooking tragedies
Wow... I had a toatster oven catch on fire once. And blew a coil of a stove, which left bits of metal in the walls. And I've watched a cappuccino machine explode when unattended. Nevermind, I plead the fifth.

Peanut Butter Stuffed Jalapenos
Great concept, but maybe some more coaching would be beneficial. Mine were scorching hot, so the second batch I cooked a little more and came out tolerable but a little too sweet. I suppose the key is in finding the happy middle ground, but I doubt I'll be investing the time. Perhaps battering and frying might add some good texture?

Hummus III
This recipe is fantastic. I've easily made this hummus 25-30 times with constant variation. It's more authentic than the corporate at the grocery and way healthier (if you so choose *wink*). I enjoy boosting the garlic and adding some crushed red pepper or habenero for a little heat. Add more oil when blending for more smoothness, but I really enjoy the thickness and texture of some whole Garbanzos in there.

Easy Pie Crust
Amazing recipe! It's super easy and very versatile. I've added a dash of nutmeg and cinnamon and used it for a pumpkin pie. I've added a dash of sea salt and used it for a pot pie. A little brown sugar will turn it into a cherry pie with a sweet twist. Great all around and perfect for "off the cuff" experimenting without catastrophic loss if it goes wrong!
