I own a vegetarian cooking and recipe group with over 6,200 members. I have been in the kitchen since age 12. I love to cook, bake and will spend a day in the kitchen making a gourmet meal at the drop of a hat.
My favorite things to cook
Ethnic foods, baked goods, anything vegetarian, experimenting with the out of the ordinary ingredients.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Having holiday potlucks. Everyone trying to bring something new each time.
My cooking triumphs
Persian rice with a tahdeeg, I mastered it. Finding my mom's old buttermilk bread recipe and having it come out just like she used to make it.
My cooking tragedies
Flipping a casserole on the floor in front of 20 hungry guests.
Having chocolate in the blender and turning it on with the lid off.
