About this Cook
I love food and don't understand people who don't. I've always been a baker, but have done more cooking lately and love it.
My favorite things to cook
I'm a vegetarian but also cook vegan. I love the idea of having alternative ways to make things, especially with baking. I love Italian, Mexican and Thai food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom's cooking all the time. My dad's biscotti at Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
Making a Thanksgiving dinner when I was 23 for a family I lived with in Austria. They loved it! They also thought Chocolate Chip Cookies and peanut butter were the best things ever.
My cooking tragedies
I made red curry chicken (when I still ate meat) for my family and added about 6 times too much curry paste. It was so incredibly hot that everyone was sweating, crying and had hiccups.

Easy Corn Chowder I
Made this vegetarian without the bacon and it was still delicious! It's so easy. I'll definitely be making this again.
