About this Cook
I love to cook, as you can see by me having a membership on this site. I love to try all sorts of new foods; one of my passions is traveling as well, so when I travel it is my mission to explore the culinary culture of a country.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook just about everything, being a vegetarian I focus in that area, which also includes healthy food. I do like the occasional fatty comfort food here and there, we all deserve it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pennsylvania Dutch cooking!

The Best Thai Coconut Soup
Great soup! I have been trying to get as close as possible to the local thai restaurants version of this, and this is about as close as it gets. Though I added water chestnuts, bamboo shoots, baby corn (must have), and slices of sweet red pepper. I omitted the shrimp because the thai restaurant does not use it, and it was perfect. If served my way this is a huge hit with vegetarians. In order to make it completely vegetarian I used mushroom broth instead of chicken and it does not affect taste, since flavor comes from the curry, coconut, lime and herbs. It tasted exactly as the restaurant makes it!

Portobello Pot Pie
Great recipe, I didn't follow the recipe exact, and just threw the veggies in a wok with oil, cooked a few minutes, added some water, definitely not as much as the recipe calls for, added the soy, as well as some veggie paste for extra flavor, and toward the end I thickened it with a few tablespoons of AP flour, you know by the thickness when it is done, it should be pretty thick, and not runny... I added the potatoes to the mix last right before I filled the pie. Include corn in the recipe, it gives the pie an extra element, good stuff, if I had peas I would have added them too. I will definitely do this recipe again.

Dutch Apple Pie
I grew up in Pennsylvania, where dutch cooking is big and in our blood. When I made this pie it reminded me so much of Lancaster County and the good amish market cooking! I did not use parchment paper, didn't seem necessary, and it turned out great anyway. My boyfriend ate so much of this he made himself sick and will never eat it again, that is unfortunate, so don't get out of hand because it is so delicious!
