About this Cook
I like funky and exotic foods, one of my favorite things is to go downtown and try eclectic persian and indian resteraunts. Sometimes I think I could live on coffee and samosas. :)
My favorite things to cook
Vegetarian and low fat/low cal are my favorites, I also love trying new and exotic foods. I love working out substitutes for regular recipes with splenda and low fat ingredients to make them something I can eat!
My cooking tragedies
When I first started cooking, my cookies were terrible! They always came out completely flat or fat and rock-like. :)

Vegetarian Tortilla Soup
My whole hard-to-please, meat-eating family loved this! The avocado on top was definitely a good touch, we had chips and salsa with it but I think cornbread would be yummy as well. Thanks for this great recipe!

Cornmeal Waffles
I agree that some kind of fat could have been added, or applesauce- will probably do that next time I make these. It would have made them just a little more gooey. They were very good with fruit though, my whole family loved them.

Peppermint Meringues
They were kind of weird and styrofoamy, but once you got past the texture, they were pretty good. I like the peppermint addition, it gave them some added flavor and my boyfriend loved it. Next time I will experiment with other additions as well, different types of chopped up candy might be good. :)
