a vegan food and cat enthusiast.
My favorite things to cook
vegan mushroom and spinach strata out of veganomicon in my cast iron skillet. if it's not from scratch, i don't want much to do with it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
every year since i can remember, my grandmother makes heavenly molasses and white cookies for us to decorate with frosting and colored sugar.
My cooking triumphs
that dang strata. it's great, healthy, refreshing (in the sense where i'm not sick of it yet), and aesthetically pleasing. i also was really into these green tea cupcakes for awhile, and i make great soups, especially chickpea noodle.
My cooking tragedies
i don't think i'm very great at whipping up guacamole. i also made horrible muffins recently that were way too sweet. other than that, i don't think anything too awful has happened, but i'm always disappointed when i try a new recipe and it doesn't blow me away.
