Hiking at Arabia Mountain
About this Cook
I'm a vegan and a southerner. Mix up those two in the kitchen and you get southern home cooking with vegan ingredients. I'm also a passionate hiker who loves landscape photography.
My favorite things to cook
Southern side dishes and cornbread.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Thanksgiving it takes my mom, my sister and three aunts to make the dressing from scratch. Now THAT'S cooking.
My cooking triumphs
Blackened tofu. The secret to tofu is a good marinade.
My cooking tragedies
Corn pudding. If it was laundry I would have to wash, rinse and repeat.

Butternut Squash Soup
Great tasting recipe! Since I'm vegan I used vegetable broth instead of chicken bouillon. I left out the onion and used Italian seasoning (so I wouldn't have to buy the marjoram). I blended the sour cream into the mixture one tablespoon at a time until I got the creamy taste that was right for me. Delicious!!! Did not take long for the butternut squash to soften when boiled.

Harvard Beets
This is a great recipe for beets. Nice sweet and sour sauce. I used fresh beets and "Grandma G" recommendation to cook fresh beets until tender then follow this recipe was very helpful. So was Reciplu suggestion to boil sauce to get the cornstarch to activate. Mine came out perfect. Love it when a recipe comes together.

Honey Roasted Red Potatoes
Love these and everyone who has tasted them also enjoys them. Before baking I boil the potatoes for five minutes as someone else suggested. I put them in a mixing bowl and toss in one package of dry onion soup mix. I too doubled the sauce. I add half the sauce at the beginning and the other half midway through baking.
