About this Cook
I love all types of food but have recently found out I am lactose intolerant and I try to eat more fish then meat. I am always trying to create new quick meals that are healthy that use vegatables, whole grains and fish. I descibe myself as a vegan who eat fish so sometimes cooking gets tricky.
My favorite things to cook
Anything new...and i love using spices makes everything taste better. wWo needs mayo, butter and oils when you have spices?
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love going home since my mom has always been a wonderful cook. She would always make different types of food growing up from Italian to Indian and in a healthy way. I've defiently incorporate those ideals into my cooking.
My cooking triumphs
I've just started baking recently and realized you can have fun with the recipe and add and adjust. For some reason I was always taught to make exact measurements or else it wouldnt work.
My cooking tragedies
Roasted eggplant sauce for whole wheat penne. It took me forever to roast that thing and i tried making the sauce extra healthy and just turned into bland mush.

Garlic Butter
Very good! i cut it down to three serving because I really try not to eat that much butter all the time. i also used garlic powder because that's all i have and a dash of sea salt. I think you are suppose to use unsalted butter for this recipe. i spread this on a baguette i made right out of the oven...heaven!

Curried Spinach Soup
This was good and comforting. I made this for a sunday supper at a freinds and even the non veggies easters liked it. I love curry so that's probally why i liked this so much. I made a few minor changes, i sauteed yellow onions and garlic instead of the green onions and added a pinch of red pepper flakes. Instead of sour cream, I used non fat greek yogurt just because I like the taste better and its so healthy for you.

Whole Wheat Blueberry Pancakes
I'm sorry but i did not like these and am wondering what I did wrong because there where so mnay good reviews. I love whole wheat flour more than white too but these had a weird bitter taste to them and all my baking supplies are newer and have been used before so I dont think that is the problem. m The only i did differently was rubbed oil on the pan ibnstead of using spray.
