About this Cook
I am happily married, no kids but 2 cats. I love to cook. I have Interstitial Cystitis so there are ALOT of foods that I can not have, and on top of that I am vegan. Although I have so many limitations I never run out of food to cook or eat. I love being vegan. AIM: Layla303
My favorite things to cook
Vegan alfredo & carob fudge, but I wouldn't say favorite thing to cook, more like favorite thing to eat! :-)
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am not sure.
My cooking triumphs
I am getting good at this and can make almost anything vegan. I have amazed myself at times with things like Vegan Alfredo, Vegan Grilled Cheese & Vegan Salisbury steak.
My cooking tragedies
Some times cooking vegan has its ups & downs. Recipes that call for eggs usually give me problems and sometimes don't turn out. I have a hard time making things like pancakes, brownies, & vegan cupcakes.

Broccoli Salad II
Pretty good, and my 4yr old loves it. I made a few changes... we are vegetarian so I did not add the bacon, but did add in onions and walnuts. I did 1 cup of vegenaise (vegan mayo) with 2tbsp aged white wine vinegar and replaced the white refined sugar with 1/4 cup raw agave nectar. The Agave did give it a different taste but I still think its pretty good and if my 4yr old loves it then thats all i can ask for :-)

Easy Four Cheese Lasagna
These was the best lasagna I have ever eaten. I used one can of sauce and only about 1cup of sauce from the 2nd can I bought. I followed the recipe exact except adding a layer of filling on top of each noodle which I made of cooked broccoli that I ran through the food processor to make sort of mashed, I also minced onion, green bell pepper and mushroom and stirred it into the broccoli mixture. It was the PERFECT blend of flavors and the most wonderful lasagna ever. Thank You Thank You Thank You.
