That title is a bit of a misnomer I’m afraid. Tonight’s dinner wasn’t vegetarian because I used chicken broth, and for lunch I brought leftover chicken curry to work – so Monday wasn’t entirely meatless, but last night I made the conscious decision not to get some meat out of the freezer for… MORE

I had huge success with my menu planning this week! We had a couple of curveballs thrown at us (like my boyfriend was suddenly sent to Winnipeg for work for 3 days) but I managed to make most of the recipes I had eyed last week. The best one of the week was the Rosemary Ranch Chicken… MORE

Last night I went to a friend’s house after dinner. He just got a brand new BBQ, so of course we were testing it out! Since I’d already eaten, we just did small things one at a time as dessert. Here is what we tried... Grilled Carrot: I didn’t really like this – the carrot got kind of dried… MORE

About Me
I'm a 22 year old novice cook - I live with my boyfriend in a small apartment with a teeny kitchen. Right now I'm trying to eat healthier and cut some meat out of my diet - I'm writing a blog about cooking my way through a vegetarian cookbook! I love trying new recipes, and adjusting them to suit my tastes.
My favorite things to cook
I love BBQing, making casseroles, and putting together any kind of soup. I'm also trying to get into baking - my kitchen is tiny so I have to use simple recipes, but I love making muffins and cookies to share.
My favorite family cooking traditions
When I was little my mom taught me how to make brown sugar syrup for our homemade pancakes - everytime she made pancakes at home, I would make the sauce to go with them.
My cooking triumphs
Lasagna Day - My first ever dinner party in my apartment, I made spinach salad, stuffed mushrooms, lasagna from scratch, and apple crisp. It was a hit with my friends, I got so many compliments!
My cooking tragedies
When I was in high school I decided to make some cinnamon buns, but the only recipe I could find was a huge batch, so I cut it in half. However, when I went to mix the ingredients, I found myself adding the full amount of some but only half of others, and I couldn't remember how much of each I'd already done. I tried cooking them anyways, but they were terrible!
