A meat eater entrenched in a vegetarian household.
My favorite things to cook
I am always on the lookout for tasty, fast, and healthy vegetarian dinners.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Too many to name. My mom's simple chop suey, a good boiled dinner. Meat pie at Christmas. My dad's homemade spaghetti sauce. My grandmother's crepes and pink soup.
My cooking triumphs
still waiting for something I would call a "triumph"
My cooking tragedies
I used to try and make up a healthy vegetarian recipe to bring to holiday meals with the extended family. These included inedible vegetarian chili, disgusting fake meat sausage rolls, and fruitcake. All were disasters. My grandmother once remarked that we don't need to worry about unhealthy food on a holiday, but I think she just didn't want to tell my my food was awful. I have learned the value of a recipe, especially that of a five-star allrecipes recipe.
