About this Cook
Stay at home mom of a wonderful little boy. He loves to help in the kitchen. I have been vegetarian since I was 12 years old (14 years now) and am raising my son vegetarian. I cook with organic products and try to buy everything fresh. I try to stear clear of anything with preservatives and am a chronic label reader.
My favorite things to cook
I cook a lot of tofu. I am on the lookout for a perfect saag paneer recipe. This is a dish I try to cook about once a month and I just can't seem to get it right.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking together as a family. My husband and I always joke that our little boy is going to grow up and be a chef. On his cooking show he will say "I loved being in the kitchen with my mom and dad. They would cook together and it really made me love cooking."
My cooking triumphs
With the help of all these wonderful recipes they are becoming more plentiful.
My cooking tragedies
I lived in Florida for about 1 year and made a great friend. She invited us to Thanksgiving dinner with her whole quite large family. I said I would make a pecan pie. I didn't realize that my husband had used the eggs I thought I had. I searched the entire town for a store that was open, but I guess that in central Florida they aren't open on holidays. I ended up using eggbeaters and my pie turned out very 'fluffy'. Everyone pretended to like it, but it was clear that with over 20 people and an entire pie left over that no one really did.

Portobello Penne Pasta Casserole
I made a few changes to this: added green bell peppers and more fresh garlic. Also my 3 year old wanted elbow noodles so I obliged. My husband, son and neighbor loved it! My husband said it was like 'souped up' macaroni and cheese only way better. I am eager to try this again with the penne noodles to see how it changes, but I do suggest elbow noodles to make it more kid friendly.

Veggie Pot Pie
I made this as a main course for Thanksgiving. I prepared the filling the day before and stuck it in the fridge. Made the crust and baked it as called for. It looked beautiful and tasted great. One guest described it as "your very favorite vegetable stew surrounded by heaven."

Shrimp and Asparagus
Absolutly delicious. I substitute angel hair pasta for the egg noodles. I also bake the asparagus with a little olive oil instead of boiling. Other than that, I follow the recipe and it turns out wonderful everytime!
