The husband and me
About this Cook
I'm in law school, but I love taking time out to cook a healthy, fresh, vegetarian meal for my husband. I'm crazy for all vegetables, and am always looking for ways to make them more enjoyable for others, yet still healthful.
My favorite things to cook
Right now: sashimi-free sushi, tempe & bell pepper fajitas, vegetarian stuffed bell peppers, egg-free corn bread, and unique gourmet salads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Thursday until I left for college, my Dad made pizza. At first I just watched, and then he started teaching me. Every time I use his recipe, I'm transported back to his kitchen. Someday I'll teach my (future) kids how to do make pizza, too!
My cooking triumphs
1. successful sushi on the first try 2. perfect egg-free brownies 3. every time I try a new recipe and my hubby loves it.
My cooking tragedies
I charred grilled cheese sandwiches once. :( So pitiful.

Sweet Dinner Rolls
Fabulous! I didn't use an egg, and I used Earth Balance vegan butter, and Silk soy milk, and I cut the sugar by 1/2. I brought a double recipe to our family's annual Easter potluck, and they positively disappeared! Definitely sweet enough for dinner rolls if you halve the sugar, though.

Banana Oat Muffins
Great recipe. The muffins were delicious, and my husband approved. Normally he won't eat banana bread because it is too refined and sweet. I used 1/4 cup turbinado sugar (instead of 1/2 cup white sugar). I also replaced half of the oil with applesauce. I replace half of the white flour with wheat flour. Finally, since I don't eat eggs, I left the egg out. To make everything bind together, I just mixed the wet and dry without the oil, and then added the oil after letting the mixture sit for a couple of minutes. This lets the wheat gluten activate and bind everything together. I'm keeping this recipe!

Mom's Sushi Rice
Thanks for sharing! Rice seems easy to make at first, but there are so many differences among rice-cooking cultures. This recipe really helped my sushi-making.
