I love to cook. Even after working an 8+ hour day, I am usually tripping over myself to get home and get in the kitchen!
My favorite things to cook
Vegetarian foods and experiementing with Vegan fare.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My immediate family didn't really cook. I learned a couple of things from my Grandma, but have taught myself and created my own traditions.
My cooking triumphs
Making a vegetarian version of Orange Chicken (I subbed Seitan) for a pot luck and hearing all of the meat eaters rave about how delicious the Chicken was. I didn't set out to fool anyone, but the fact that they were made me happy. I of course cheerfully informed them of the truth. Veggie food can be tasty!
My cooking tragedies
I made a Lentil Loaf for Christmas dinner this year and tried a new recipe. It was soooo salty and everyone thought it was stuffing.
