About this Cook
My wife and I love cooking, but feel like we never have enough time to play in the kitchen! We have two wonderful boys and we are a vegan family.
My favorite things to cook
We like to try new vegan dishes and also like to convert meat recipes into vegan meals.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We love most all ethnic foods. My wife and I joke that someday, when we are in our 80's, instead of playing bingo, we will be shuffling around the kitchen trying out some new veggie recipe!

Mexican Bean Salad
We followed this recipe as written - except I added a second clove of garlic, and since the frozen corn that we use is a 16-oz bag, we added the whole bag. Some folks recommended cutting the oil/vinegar in half. I did not, and would not... it is perfect the way it is written. Thanks for sharing!!

Movie Star Popcorn
This way of making popcorn was great! After making three batches of popcorn, we ended up changing/doing the following: The total amount of oil/butter in the recipe is 5 Tbs. Our boys like extra butter flavor, so we used only 1 Tbs. of oil and then used 4 Tbs. butter (we use Earth’s Balance non-hydrogenated vegan ‘butter’). The larger amount of butter to oil gave us the stronger buttery taste we wanted. Since I have always used ½ tsp. of salt for every ½ cup of corn, I added all salt at once, along with the corn and 4 Tbs. (1/4 cup) butter. Melting and cooking the butter right in the pot was great. Having the extra oil in the pot - instead of pouring it over the finished popcorn - prevented the corn from burning – a great tip! As the recipe said, I took the pot off the stove when the kernel pops were about 2 seconds apart - no burning or sticking! Another great tip! We like to stir in nutritional yeast flakes (available at health-food stores) before eating. It gives a nice ‘cheesy’ flavor and is very nutritional. I now have a new way to make popcorn! Thanks for sharing!

Curried Coconut Chicken
We just finished eating this for supper. VERY Good! Our boys loved it. We made a vegetarian version with veggie chicken. We doubled the sauce and added broccoli. The broccoli was a nice addition. I ate my last bowl without rice…kind of like a chicken, broccoli, curry, coconut soup! Great recipe... Thanks for sharing God bless!
