I'm currently 32, married, with one son. My son is almost 7. We are vegetarian. We tried vegan a few years back, but cheese is just so delicious...I am a stay at home mom, former flight attendant. I love to travel. I love to cook. I enjoy making vegetarian dishes and really love to try and create old time favourites in a vegan or vegetarian variety. I'm also trying to get into baking. I love sewing.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make vegan or vegetarian versions of family favourites. I have a great recipe that I created for my un-beef stroganoff...And my vegan sloppy joes are the BEST. I haven't shared the recipes on here yet...but maybe I will soon.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love that I'll ask my husband to make dinner and then I end up taking over...his idea of a great meal is cooked plain rice with hot sauce. :)
My cooking triumphs
Back when I was still a meat eater, I made a beef tenderloin for my uncle and grandfather with a roasted garlic and horseradish crust (recipe is on here somewhere) that was so amazing, my grandfather bragged about it to his friends until the day he died, literally! Love you Gramps!
I also have baked the most delicious vegan cakes.
My cooking tragedies
I once made a most wonderful squash pie...similar to pumpkin pie, but with other fall squash. Well, we were all so excited to dig into the delicious dessert, and as we bit down, I recalled that I didn't add the sugar...needless to say, it wasn't the best dessert pie...
