Hollywood Art Chick
About this Cook
Professional animation artist, illustrator, and designer. I scuba dive and cycle. As a vegetarian, I am focused on healthy cooking and ways to adapt traditional recipes to my lifestyle. I like natural ingredients, no mixes and few cans.
My favorite things to cook
Japanese curry, pumpkin and black bean chili, persimmon cookies, Indian food, raw foods, greek vegetarian
My favorite family cooking traditions
Everyone in my family was a lousy cook. The only thing they made that I imitate was my grandpa's beer bread.
My cooking triumphs
Vegetarian meatloafs, mushroom gravy, oyster stew (OK, so I do eat some seafood), cherry-chocolate cheesecake, sage pesto potatoes, things with pumpkin in them. My most-loved dish: Portobello sandwiches.
My cooking tragedies
Accidentally dumping an industrial sized can of oregano directly onto a potato pizza; making chili with dried beans before I realized you have to soak those things before adding the other ingredients.

Salmon Chowder
Perfectly delicious and well-balanced flavor! I subbed fresh thyme for the dill weed, almond milk for the evaporated milk, added some bay leaves in the cooking process, and blended about 2/3 of the boiled vegetables before adding the fish and milk. Don't overthink this recipe; it's best simple.

Pear and Blue Cheese Salad
Wonderful salad! I added some avocado and Bac-O's. You could add any number of things to this classic for variation. When I didn't have pear, I put in some apple, and that was not too bad either.

Yep, that is the flavor of pesto that I know and love. Put it on macaroni and steamed veggies, and it was great. Took it over to friends' home and served it. They said, "Elegant."
