About this Cook
A vegetarian who lives in a meat eater's world. I love to experiment with new ways to convince my husband that a life with minimal meat is not all that bad.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make soups and interesting salads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
By becoming vegetarian I have shrugged many of my family's traditions. I've found myself creating new ones.

Fresh Broccoli Salad
Not bad. I didn't use bacon (vegetarian). Instead I added dried cranberries along with the raisins. I also used about 1/2 the amount of red onion.

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips
Easy to make and people were asking me how to make it. The salsa was fantastic and the chips were great with it.
