About this Cook
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...

Waffles I
After skimming a few reviews, I seperated my egg whites, whipped them, & folded in at the end; doubled the white sugar, and tripled the vanilla (because my family and I really LOVE vanilla). These came out so delicious I won't try another recipe! First time using the waffle iron too! Highly recommend. No leftovers. Definitely serve hot! I like melted butter, powdered sugar, and a little whipped cream.

Golden Sweet Cornbread
Everyone loved this! I followed the recipe exactly except 3/4 cup flour 1 and 1/4 cup cornmeal. Delicious!!! If I don't make buttermilk cornbread, this is my new go to recipe!!

Fluffy French Toast
Delicious! Perfect! Yummy! Never making another recipe apart from a baked version I like. Only thing I did different was use vanilla sugar from Penzeys in place of white sugar. This recipe is perfect.

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.

Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
