We are a geeky/hippie couple that are loving it up in Humboldt County. We are vegetarian and don't mind telling our meat-eating friends about what they are eating when they are eating it. As we are students, we have to make quick meals, but we try our damnedest to make it absurdly delicious.
My favorite things to cook
Cornbread and a big pot of vegetarian chili really hits the spot when finals come around; pizza is a fun weekend dinner that yields leftovers fit to freeze.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas cookies, of course. Both of us have over-eager grandmothers that are always keen to flaunt their traditional Norwegian cookie recipes.
My cooking triumphs
Grilled pesto sandwiches. Tomato, onion, basil pesto (the recipe is here, "simple garlic and basil pesto"), mozzarella cheese and sourdough bread. Best grilled cheese sandwich/panini ever!
My cooking tragedies
Sweet macaroni and cheese. No, not sweet as in "awesome," sweet as in "sweetened condensed milk."
