A few months ago, I blogged about how I had finally made my first pie crust. I had filled it with a vegetarian quiche, and later cursed myself for not being brave enough to make it earlier! It was so easy, and previously I had made crustless quiches or paid for prepaid crusts at the store.… MORE

I’ll never forget the year when my Mom told me Santa was coming for Thanksgiving. I couldn’t have been in double-digits yet, and obviously, I still believed in Santa. I grew up in a small community on an island in the Pacific Northwest, with two parents who had a knack at making friends and… MORE

Have you ever made hot chocolate? I mean real hot chocolate, no packets of chocolate-flavored powder or hot water involved? I recently spent a few weeks in the Dominican Republic, and how to make real hot chocolate was one of the things I learned while I was there. Being that it was nearly… MORE

About Me
I love to cook and bake. I live to eat, not eat to live. I love eating out and trying new things! I’ve been a vegetarian for my whole life, but I do sneak the occasional slice of bacon or pepperoni.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are usually vegetarian; Indian, Vietnamese and Thai cuisines are a few of my favorites. I also have a sweet tooth; cheesecakes and cookies are my specialties!
My favorite family cooking traditions
People often wonder where I get my love for cooking; my Mom cooks out of a box and my Dad was always too busy to cook. Perhaps I am a foodie at heart and it was an instinct for survival?
My cooking triumphs
I enjoy cooking for large groups, but it’s such a big task! Lots of planning, shopping, cooking and cleaning! I always feel a great sense of accomplishment once everyone has food on their plate!
My cooking tragedies
Most recently I dropped an entire quiche on the floor. I was trying to move it to a different rack in the oven, and I dropped it upside down. What a mess!
