I'm a twenty-something single mother of one. My own Mother is a caterer and my Dad is also a fantastic chef so I learned to cook from two accomplished people.
My favorite things to cook
Basically anything vegetarian. I use a lot of meat substitutes, wheat roasts, textured vegetable or soy protein, beans, some tofu, lots of vegetables. I am particularly fond of Mediterranean food. I can make a great spanikopita. I can also make some killer red curry. I love anything made with artichokes, I am thoroughly convinced that it is the food of the Gods! I also love all kinds of soups, homemade vegetable and "mock chicken" broth, chowders, anything that's got flair. Salads and pasta are also staples for me. I would like to get into baking my own breads but so far have not found the time.
