About this Cook
My adoption of vegetarianism has coincided nicely with having to fend for myself in the food world, and now that I'm between school and work, I have a lot of time to devote to cooking. My least favorite questions are "what do you eat?" and "are you sure you're getting enough protein?"
My favorite things to cook
Any dish that doesn't actually require cooking--I prefer chopping, blending, assemblage, and even baking. I have only recently accepted long ingredient lists into my repertoire. If it contains cayenne and/or lemon juice, it will probably be fantastic.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family celebrates Thanksgiving on Friday so we can spend a whole extra day cooking. As far back as I can remember my dad has always been a wonderful chef, and I hope one day I can be as inventive and intuitive as he is in the kitchen.
My cooking triumphs
Pretty much every time something I cook turns out delicious I see it as a miracle.
My cooking tragedies
One time a friend and I tried to make ravioli from scratch to feed 40 people. After we'd quadrupled the recipe or so, we ended up with a flour and egg volcano, which spilled all over the floor. It was quite a mess.

Greek Lentil Salad
Cooked raw lentils & made my own Greek dressing. Awesome!

Avocado Dessert
I've tried a different avocado pudding recipe before and hated it, so I was being brave trying this one, but I couldn't believe how good it was! I would say the recipe only makes 2 servings, though. I used almond milk and freezed it to make it more like ice cream than pudding and the texture was really great.

Grilled Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich
Burned the bread in 2 seconds flat. I think it might be easier to just toast the bread and spread the peanut butter on while it's still warm.
