Me & Bella
About this Cook
I started cooking at eighteen when I left for college and realized I didn't really know how to cook anything for myself. Over the past 11 years, I've been gradually building my cooking skills until I reached a point where people describe me as a "good cook." I'm very proud of this and love reading recipes and learning new cooking techniques.
My favorite things to cook
Anything quick and easy I can make after a long day at work, anything with a Mexican or Asian flavor, any dessert without chocolate!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family didn't really value cooking. My mom was one of those people who thought she couldn't cook well, so she didn't try to get better. I grew up thinking cooking was mysterious and difficult and was afraid to try recipes for fear I'd fail.
My cooking triumphs
I made tiramissu earlier this year and am very proud of this. I learned how to prepare a thanksgiving dinner by myself! I can make homemade fudge in many different varieties. People frequently request my homemade cookies, chips, and salsa.
My cooking tragedies
Homemade mayonnaise and I do not get along. I've set a pan of boiling water on fire once (I'm actually proud of this) and I've set toasting bread on fire in the oven a few times.

Vegan Bean Taco Filling
I didn't have any canned black beans in the house, so I prepared a bag of white beans. I also didn't have any paprika, so I used some turmeric instead, which added good color and flavor. This recipe was excellent. Definitely don't even miss the meat with this filling recipe.
