I'm a single mom to three teenage boys that love to eat! I've been enjoying my time in the kitchen since becoming vegan, experimenting with new recipes and trying all sorts of new ingredients. Thankfully my boys love my cooking and are always willing to try whatever I put in front of them. As a kid, I NEVER would have eaten the kinds of foods my boys eat now. I'm so happy I've been able to expose them to such a wide variety of things!
My favorite things to cook
SOUP! For the last couple years I have been obsessed with soups and stews and chilis of all kinds! So many combinations of delicious, fresh ingredients! I can't get enough! Going hand in hand with that, I love bread! I love the texture of the dough, the smell as it bakes and the taste of freshly baked bread that the store bought kind can never compare to! I also love whipping up fun snacks and treats for my kids (especially if I can make them healthy on top of fun) whether it be for a holiday, a special occasion, or no reason at all.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Since my boys were tiny I've made special meals and desserts for every holiday... but their favorites (and mine) are probably the (usually colorful) holiday themed things I make for Easter, St. Patrick's Day, Halloween, etc
