Howdy, Y'all!
About this Cook
Vegetarian. Feminist. Buddhist. Democrat.
My favorite things to cook
The #1 thing I love to do is bake. Pasta is one of the biggest staples I cook, and 8 times out of 10, it's what I'm having (and loving!) for dinner. Italian is one of the most delicious (and easily vegan) food genre. Mexican is a big favorite as well.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is anything BUT traditional.
My cooking triumphs
If I don't succeed, I tweak. I've had no fails, as everything is edible and tastes good. I'm my worst critic, and usually I'm the only one who thinks something needs to change.
My cooking tragedies
I remember making cupcakes when I was about 13, and the bottoms were so burnt! I was so disappointed, I swore off making cupcakes until last month. It only took 4 years! The cupcakes were a success, at least!

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust
I loved this recipe, and made a delicious alfredo spinach clam pizza with it, using wheat flour. The crust was too thick, though, and next time, I will use this recipe to make TWO pizzas.

Vegan Cupcakes
Liked the texture, did not care for the flavor. It may just be my kitchen, but the cupcakes tasted heavily of flour. We're adjusting the recipe to see what works. Such as lowering the amount of flour, adding more vanilla and sugar. I want people to taste my cupcake and be shocked that it's vegan, not think, "Well, it IS vegan." As an avid baker, and recently turned vegan, I'm looking for a recipe good enough to replace my infamous brownies. The quest continues. The only thing we changed was the oil, as we didn't have coconut oil. This recipe is a great starting point, though.

Vegan Chocolate Cake
I think this recipe is an excellent basis for a modified recipe, but alone, I didn't like this at all. I'm a baker, recently vegan, and this cake was not sweet enough. Also, it smelled like fish. I went in with an open mind, but non-vegans won't like this at all. I'm planning on doubling the sugar next go around to see if it improves, but if not, I'll be looking for another cake recipe.
