About this Cook
Just graduated from college and am preparing to get married! I'm a vegan and I love coming up with great ways to veganize comfort foods.
My favorite things to cook
Vegan cupcakes! On any given day, though, I tend to cook with a lot of whole grains and vegetables. I love to make my own hummus.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Hmm, my family is made up of hearty, meat-eating Germans and Latvians. I suppose my Oma's potato salad and my mom's Indian veggie burgers are my two favorite family dishes.
My cooking triumphs
Vegan Shepderess' Pie My Lime Breeze Vegan Cupcakes Vegan Pumpkin Pancakes My homebaked bread--it get's 'em every time!
My cooking tragedies
Umm, there are a lot of them. I'm not terribly fond of this thing called "measuring," so I usually tend to mess up a recipe every month or so.

Best Brownies
These consistently get me rave reviews! I've made them several times and they get eaten very quickly. I made one batch with whole wheat flour and they still turned out great, but with a bit of a nutty flavor. They also work well if you use Smart Balance in place of the butter.
