About this Cook
Music is my biggest passion in life. I am a total outdoors person. Love biking, beach, camping & going to multi day music festivals.
My favorite things to cook
Im vegetarian & tend to be extremely creative in the kitchen. One of my fav things to make/eat are veggie quesadillas with whatever's in the fridge. Love to make things from scratch...guacamole, peanutbutter, granola bars, humus & whatever else comes to mind. Lately have been cooking with a lot of dried fruits, particularly Tropical Fruits (Pineapple, Kiwi, Mango, Papaya). As Jimmy Buffett sang, "I got a Caribbean Soul I Can Barely Control"
My favorite family cooking traditions
usu. enjoy cooking most with 420 & a cocktail.
My cooking triumphs
My 420 brownies are always good
My cooking tragedies
when i got my first apt. when i was 18, i made pasta for dinner & dumped the boiling hot water into the strainer the wrong way in the sink...back towards me rather than away. Needless to say the boiling hot water spilled all over every mans really sensitive area...the boys & all. I had to call in sick to work the next 4 days. No permanent damage was endured. WAHOO!

Homemade Peanut Butter
I posted this recipe & wanted to clear some things up. I have heard from numerous sources NEVER to add oil...that the nuts have enough natural oils. I now use the Magic Bullet. Unfortunately I went through 8 blenders/food processors b/c the motor burns out after running for a given amt of time. So cannot let it run long enough to turn peanuts into smooth PB. I still use this recipe on a weekly basis (im a huge PB fan) and stand by it. I now use 1 jar Planters Honey Rst and 1 jar of Planters 5 Alarm (spicy) and everyone still loves it. Does anyone have a recommendation for an affordable food processor (Vitamix is out of my price range and too big) whose motor will not burn out after 2 or 3 min of use? Also like compact appliances b/c live in apt w/ limited counter space.

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers
I love this recipe but fist time they were too wet and second time too dry. Both times i cooked on an outdoor grill...the only way in my opinion! im BBQing tonight with my hippie friends/neighbors and am making them. i think my problem may be the size of each individual burger. so tonight i will use my measuring cup to gauge the size better and make each burger more consistent.

Peanut Butter Fiend Quesadillas
Who would have thunk. Peanut butter is a large staple of my diet. I make my own in a blender. 2Lbs Planters Hoeny Roasted Peanuts and 2tblsp. peanut oil (be patient, it will dont want runny PB, so dont add more oil.) The secret is Honey Roasted peanuts
