About this Cook
I'm 27 years old, a newlywed, a gluten-free vegan, health coach, marathoner, & Midwesterner now living in San Diego!
My favorite things to cook
I have a fierce sweet tooth, so baking & desserts are probably my FAVORITE thing to make.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My dad makes a mean gluten-free apple pie with a walnut topping that's to-die-for & I do an unbelievable job of gobbling it up!
My cooking triumphs
I made fried potato latkes from scratch on my hubby's & my first Hanukkah/Christmas together. He said they were as good as his mom's!
My cooking tragedies
Back in college, I fell asleep while waiting for a pot of noodles to boil and awoke to the horrible stench of a solidified, smoking, burned mass. The pot was ruined, my place stunk for days, and I suppose I was lucky that I didn't burn down the building!

Quinoa and Black Beans
I omitted the cayenne & added 1 diced red bell pepper, 1 yellow bell pepper, 2 small tomatoes & lime juice. This recipe is A-MAZING! And very forgiving--I'm looking forward to playing around with it more as I think it'll be a regular dish in our gluten-free vegan house!

German Pancakes II
I have to eat gluten-free, so I used 1/4 cup gluten-free all purpose baking flour, 1/2 cup milk, 1 Tb butter and 3 eggs. The pancake bakes perfectly at 425 degrees in 18-20 minutes (feeds 2). We've made this multiple times with variations using cinnamon, cocoa powder, honey, or pumpkin pie spices baked in, which are all fabulous options. Maple syrup is our favorite topping.

Crustless Spinach Quiche
What a delicious and sinfully easy recipe. I'm sure it will be a regular in our rotation. The recipe is great as is, though I've played around with it a bit. We enjoyed the recipe with sweet red bell pepper, and 1 cup Mexican cheese blend with 1 cup fat free cottage cheese for the cheese mixture and garlic powder added a great depth of flavor.
