I became a vegetarian a little over a year ago, so I've had to become a lot more creative in the kitchen. I love a good challenge, though.
My favorite things to cook
In high school, I had a medical problem that required me to eliminate sugar from my diet. The result was a plethora of sugar-free recipes and a passion for experimentation in the kitchen.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Breadfruit and salt cod. We're from the Caribbean.
My cooking triumphs
I was able to perfect a great vegetarian dish, Special K roast, after several years of altering other recipes. The final product uses tofu in place of cottage cheese and is a great high protein dish for vegetarians.
My cooking tragedies
I once forgot a batch of cookies in the oven. Smoke detectors are brilliant inventions.
