About this Cook
I was a vegetarian for 9 years and recently went vegan. My husband is vegan and due to health issues cannot eat any foods in the nightshade family (tomato, potato, eggplant, peppers) so sometimes cooking is a challenge, but I love trying new things and adapting recipes to suit our dietary needs.
My favorite things to cook
Anything vegan. Particularly Indian, Mexican and Chinese cuisine. I am currently experimenting with different types of tofu as well as seitan and tempeh. I am also working on substitutions for tomatoes & potatoes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love my husband's Polish family traditions. I love making "authentic" Kraut Pierogi and Kapusta for Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
Vegan Green Bean Casserole ~ Apple Crisp ~ Vegan donut holes ~ Fresh Blueberry Pie ~ Marinated Tofu Stirfry ~ Vegan Chili ~

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers
This was a great base recipe! I used creamed corn instead of eggs (we are vegan) upped the bread crumbs by 50% as other users suggested (I use Panko) added 2 TBSP flax seeds and 1/4 cup shredded carrots, used 2 bunchs of green onions and 4 cloves garlic. Ommited the chili flavorings (personal preference). I baked them 7 min each side then lightly sauteed in olive oil. Served on whole wheat english muffins toasted with garlic-butter and a side of sweet potato fries - it really hit the spot!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies
This was just the base recipe I was looking for! We are vegan and I wanted to make regular old chocolate chip cookies. I halved the recipe using 1 cup white whole wheat flour, 1/2 cup stone ground flour, 3/4 cup oat flour, 1 tsp baking soda, 1 cup vegan margarine, 1/2 cup raw cane sugar, 1 TBSP molasses, 1/2 tsp Stevia, 1 TBSP vanilla, 2 TBSP flax seeds (ground) whisked with 6 TBSP water in place of eggs, 3/4 cup walnuts & 1 1/2 c semi sweet vegan choco chips. They were FANTASTIC!!! The only other change I would make is adding a little salt next time. Otherwise fantastic, I really tried to get a good mix of old fashioned cookies but with healthier ingredients and this was perfect! My husband and Sister in Law raved!

Baked Kale Chips
These were fantastic!!! I used Olive Oil cooking spray on my cookie sheet, put a single layer of kale leaves and lightly sprayed the top of the kale. Baked at 340 for 9 minutes and they perfect! Sprinkled some salt, onion & garlic powder lightly when just taken out of the oven. This will be made ALL the time in our house!
