I love to cook and bake! In fact, if there were no dishes to wash, I would bake a lot often! I grew-up baking breads with my mom and it inspired my interest in baking and experimenting with foods. I had many favorite recipes and then in 2008, I developed allergies to eggs and milk! To say the least, for a baker, these are the worst allergies! Fortunately, I love to experiment with recipes and I have learned many substitutes for these ingredients and have been able to conquer the challenge of vegan baking!
My favorite things to cook
Love to bake breads such as carrot bread, banana bread and corn bread. My specialty are my special holiday cookies that everyone requests! Every time my father-in-law comes to visit, he almosts expects there will be cookies! He's not afraid to admit it either!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family cooking traditions are cooking for the holiday! For Thanksgiving, I usually bake all the pies and desserts--however, for the first time, last year I was in charge of cooking turkey. The other favorite tradition, is making tamales with my family for Christmas!
My cooking triumphs
My biggest cooking triumphs are learning how to cook and bake without eggs and milk! I have baked donuts and breads that you woudn't even know are vegan! Although, now I need to focus on making my baking healthy because vegan does not equate healthy.
