About this Cook
I'm no chef...not by a long shot! I just know what I like and I love experimenting with flavors and techniques. I have a hubby and a three year old and as if pleasing them isn't hard enough, try doing it while being a vegetarian!
My favorite things to cook
I love pasta dishes, soups, and Asian inspired dishes.

Cilantro Lime Grilled Tofu
I find that marinating tofu never really works. My "marinating" technique works every time. I boiled a few cups of water and seasoned the water with garlic powder and kosher salt to taste, then I poured it over my tofu cubes and let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Then I followed the recipe except there is no need to add any salt at this point.

Baked Spaghetti
I thought this spaghetti was really good. I didn't think it could be with all the cheese in the recipe. Typically, this amount of cheese can overpower the flavor of the sauce and everything else for that matter. I am surprised at how delicious it tasted. I don't eat meat so I substituted the ground beef for vegan meatballs but everything else, I followed to the T, including the cottage cheese. I will be saving this to make at my next family function!

Asian Coconut Rice
Being a vegetarian, I love cooking this rice to eat with a lot of different dishes. I made it tonight with a vegan red beans recipe I found. Such a delicious and light flavored rice. Goes well with almost anything.
