About this Cook
I became interested in cooking when I was very young. I dedicated myself to a vegetarian diet when I was 9, and being in a family of meat eaters with an EXTREMELY picky eater mom, I sorta had to learn to cook for myself. At 17, I turned vegan and haven't felt better since! Luckily, I married a fellow animal lover and now KI cook for 2, vegan style. Soon, for our future vegan kids.
My favorite things to cook
Spicy ethnic foods, any kind of rice, muffins, and cakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up with lots of German, Irish, and Polish foods.
My cooking triumphs
Brown sugar and peach muffins.
My cooking tragedies
First time I made strawberry shortcake because I forgot to label the ''waffle mix'' and ''flour'' jars. I was in tears. And well... anytime I attempt a pie crust.

Vegan Basic Vanilla Cake
The first time I made it I accidentally swapped the water and oil measurements and when I was about to flip the pan, my dad bumped into me and half the cake fell on the floor. The dogs loved it! We all ended up standing around the counter, eating the other half with our hands like cave people. This recipe is DELICIOUS! I did sub the soy milk for soy creamer since that's all I had. Kudos to you!
