About this Cook
About me: goofy, spastic, quirky, expressive, and fun. Or maybe just dorky. Minor insomniac, as in right now.
My favorite things to cook
Vegetables! I'm a proud vegetarian of 4ish years. I've never mastered tofu, though I always appreciate ordering it from a restaurant. From a culinary standpoint, i enjoy all foods and have been known to bring home bacon (literally) for my omnivore boyfriend.
My favorite family cooking traditions
A little uninspired, quite honestly. My mother did most of the cooking and never ventured far beyond the pattern of salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
My cooking triumphs
Getting creative in the kitchen and spontaneously turning out unnamed fresh apple cake-bakes of AWESOMENESS and banana caramel pie, no cookbook to be found.
My cooking tragedies
Tofu, seitan, and the bright blue star-shaped chocolate chip cookie/cake mutant. No joke. Many more to be had, i'm sure.

Asparagus Cashew Rice Pilaf
Wow...AWESOME. The only exceptions to the recipe were barley for rice and vegetarian chk'n paste for the stock. I discovered that the only thing better than this recipe itself is spritzing a little lemon juice on the pilaf upon serving, and that chilled leftover sweet grilled vegetable kabobs make a complimentary side for an easy full vegetarian dinner. This will be a summer staple, thank you!
