Prepping Dinner - Black Bean Veggie Burgers
About this Cook
2013: I became a vegan earlier this year, and found I love to cook, bake, and menu plan. 2007: I'm retiring my can opener to learn how to cook from scratch. My husband (a chef) and our son are both excited: "no more veggie Hamburger Helper!".
My favorite things to cook
2013: fresh, filling, healthy vegan meals and the occasional sweet treats 2007: Anything really. Also to perfect my Louisiana cuisine cooking, from gumbo & red beans and rice to turtle cookies & bread pudding.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking great food and sitting around the table talking during dinner.
My cooking triumphs
2013: cooking healthy vegan meals for my family most days of the week 2007: I baked homemade king cakes for this past Mardi Gras - that's my greatest triumph yet!
My cooking tragedies
2007: I quickly learned the properties of yeast when I added boiling water and waited several hours for the dough to rise...

Mom's Buttermilk Pancakes
Only change I made - I cut the salt to 1/4 tsp. Made these this morning for my teenage son and as a 'breakfast in bed' for the hubby (who's a chef). A big hit! I should've doubled the recipe though, as I only got to taste one :)

Low-Fat Blueberry Bran Muffins
Excellent recipe! Instead of blueberries I used 3 peeled, cored, and chopped Granny Smith apples and added about a tbsp of cinnamon in with the flour mixture. The batter could have filled more than the 12 cup muffin pan, so I filled each cup to the brim and lowered my oven temp to 350 for about 18 minutes (until muffin top sprang back when touched), they rose perfectly. I let the muffins cool completely before removing them from the pan to let them set because they were so moist. My 10 year old son said they were like store bought muffins!

Quick Italian Vegetable Soup
I love veggie soup, and this recipe proved to be so easy, quick and delicious. My husband, a chef, loved this recipe too! The only changes I made were I used halved grape tomatoes, added a bit of V-8, and didn't add any salt to the soup. My son doesn't like celery so he turned his nose up to the soup so for lunch the next day my husband pureed the soup in the blender, put it back in the pot, added a little milk and chopped sausage. Our son LOVED it, he thought it was a Mexican bean soup :) This method works for homemade mushroom soup too!
