About this Cook
I'm a stay at home mom, yogini, and home-cooker in beautiful southern, CA.
My favorite things to cook
I'm a vegetarian with a spice tooth and a sweet tooth. Nothing beats a great curry and home-made desert.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pumpkin everything during the fall and a leek, mushroom, and herb stuffing for Thanksgiving.
My cooking tragedies
Sweet-potato gnocci in a mushroom sauce, for Thanksgiving 2011. The dish tasted great, but the gnocci really ended up sticking together, making a lumpy-mush looking dish. Also, I mis-calculated my time and ended up being a "hostess from hell", stuck in the kitchen, and not able to mingle :(.

Pumpkin Ginger Cupcakes
So very, yummy :). I made two accidental substitutions and one purposeful substitution. HAPPY ACCIDENTS: 1. Saw that butterscotch pudding (mix) was needed. This item was not at my local grocer; I bought vanilla pudding mix and made it with buttermilk prior to reading the recipe through (the recipe calls for dry mix) 2. Mixed up cloves and all spice in my measurements. Cupcakes are superb, despite the mix up. 3. Used 3/4 cup butter and 1/4 cup the "butterscotch" pudding referenced above. ON PURPOSE SUBSTITUTION: 1. Used 15 oz of real pumpkin, previously baked and pureed. With Gratitude, Oviedogirl. This is a wonderful recipe.

Chocolate Cupcakes
These came out heavy tasting and more like muffins than cupcakes.

Moist Carrot Cake
This cake is amazing. Your guests will LOVE, love, love it! Sometimes I substitute 1/2 the oil with Applesauce, sometimes I don't. Either way, it's a fantastic recipe. Many thanks to Koribear's co-worker :).
