It's funny how when you are very young you think that the thrills in life will be fast cars, exotic trips, great wardrobes, or late night crowds of friends at the best rock venues. Instead... here we are as fully fledged adults, and we're tingling all over because a new range/oven is going to… MORE

I can't help it... sometimes as I am cooking in my little creative corner of the universe, I fantasize. Is there someone out there... someone "hot" in all ways, reading my blog? Checking out my recipes? Online right now looking for something vegan and delicious? Is he alone too and wishing… MORE

I don't know about anyone else but I find cooking, particularly creative cooking, to be very peaceful. I can lose myself in the skills, the flavours, the organization, timing, precision, and finishing of a dish. Sure dicing six or seven different vegetables and making a yeast dough is...… MORE

I know, you're here hoping to read something about wicked chocolate dipped exploits involving sensuous foods, a fireplace, and the dark and dangerous looking, deeply hungry, rock star of my choice aren't you? Yeah... so am I... LOL.Alas... Life isn't like that and though I fantasize about it,… MORE

Having enjoyed those spring rolls just the other night, I found myself loathe to leave the orient last night; wanting more crisp yet tender veggies with that particular taste that is found in Asian cuisine. Since I had "visited" China though, I decided to travel elsewhere and enjoy a little… MORE

OK before you go get the coffee and dig in for a read about something "sensational" like drugs or alcohol... or worse... let me just put this right out there in the open. I am straight edge so there is no drugs or alcohol... heck there isn't even an illicit/cheap one night stand so... if you… MORE

Anyone that has ever planted a garden and said "Hey... lemme just throw in a zucchini plant or two", you can appreciate the title of this blog. These suckers would grow from the soil stuck to the bottom of last year's garden boots, without water OR sunlight, and STILL bury you in the lovely… MORE

Lately I've been craving Greek food; most specifically a good hearty gyro, which, as some of you know is a lamb dish designed for omnivores. Now... I've BEEN an omnivore so I'd had gyro... every tender, flavourful, succulent, and flavourful morsel laced with creamy tzatziki sauce and dripping… MORE

While this is not my first blog, it is certainly my first "foodie" blog, and, since this is my first year as a vegan, I thought it was a great way to share the journey.I'm not militant. Let me just get that out of the way. I'm not going to convert anyone, I'm not going to call your burger… MORE

About Me
I'm 42 years young... trust me I know what I'm talking about LOL. I adore cooking and if I had the time, money, and opportunity I'd go to school, become a chef, and open my own vegan restaurant.
My favorite things to cook
Hmmmm... anything really. I prefer vegan recipes but I WILL cook all sorts of things because I live in a mixed household.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We don't have any. I cook, they eat.
My cooking triumphs
A four bean vegan chili and vegan white bread that makes people stop chewing and mutter "OHMAGAWD" before chewing faster LOL.
My cooking tragedies
Cheesecake and don't ask *laughing*
