I am a passionate animal activist and I'm a Vegetarian who is transitioning into a Vegan. I love this part of myself and am happier now that I've allowed myself to just be me. I have never been one to LOVE cooking, but I'm starting to understand why people do. I am most definitely a work in progress when it comes to cooking!
My favorite things to cook
I am all about quick and easy. However, I want to start enjoying the whole act of cooking. I think when someone puts love into their food, it tastes better.
My favorite family cooking traditions
There has always been the ham and the turkey when it comes to the food and family getting together. Because I'm a Vegetarian, I happily avoid it. I think the go-to would be the mashed potatoes. SO freaking good and we always have lots of it!
My cooking triumphs
I make a killer lasagna and I'm proud of that. I'm fine with admitting that I used someone else's recipe then kind of made it my own. I'm just proud that I made the effort to put time into something like that!
My cooking tragedies
Most definitely baking cakes or cookies. They NEVER come out right. I don't know why it's so hard, but it is. I have no patience to make sure the cookies don't burn or trying to make sure they are actually done!!!
