22 year old girl from a tiny CT suburb. Currently attending Saint Joseph Women's College, Nursing class of 2011. Also have an alternative health/nutrition column in the school newspaper & enjoy keeping up on the latest healthy food "trends." Love to dine out at a good veg restaurant & have my expectations met & surpassed :)
My favorite things to cook
I am vegan, and so everything I cook follows suit: Tofu scramble, tempeh bacon (vegan BLTs mmmm), french toast, stir-fries, slow cooker chili, cookies, cupcakes, peanut butter cups.
My favorite family cooking traditions
So far, I've successfully re-created ("veganized") my great aunt's twice-baked potatoes, my mom's thumbprint cookies & my grandmother's green bean casserole. My mom also re-vamped the traditional family pasta fagioli recipe for me and it was even better than the original!
My cooking triumphs
Ginger Macadamia Coconut Carrot Cake, fudgy brownies.
My cooking tragedies
Maple syrup-sweetened brownies (my first vegan endeavor..gag), sugar cookies, most chocolate chip cookie recipes, yellow cake. Not so good with the baking it appears!
