About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I am an "on again off again" vegetarian and love fresh, healthy and delicious food. I enjoy italian, indian and mexican food-anything that has lots of flavor and spice to it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family cooks mainly good old british stodge! The only vegetarian thing my parents make is macaroni and chips(fries), which is a big favorite of mine and comfort food at its finest.
My cooking triumphs
I follow recipes mainly when cooking because I like to try lots of new things, so I am happy when the recipe turns out the way I want it to. My biggest triumph is probably my home made pizzas that replace delivery in our house! The Brooklyn style pizza crust on this site is the BEST! Add homemade marinara sauce, picante provelone and garlic salt and you will never miss your local pizza shop!
My cooking tragedies
My first attempt at thanksgiving dinner. All the sides were ready hours before the turkey and I ended up throwing it in the trash! (the package said it would take 2 hours?)

Spinach and Strawberry Salad
This salad is amazing! I used 1/4 cup agave in place of the white sugar and a mix of 1/4 c extra virgin olive oil and 1/4 c canola oil in place of the vegetable oil. I didn't have any white wine vinegar, so I used apple cider vinegar instead as I had it on hand. Also I had a bag of slivered almonds in the pantry, so I toasted some and topped the salad with them. I noticed one reader mentioned that when she put the dressing in the fridge it hardened to a paste - I have experienced that myself when I have used only extra virgin olive oil in dressings ( it is so annoying!) but didn't have any issues with the lend of half canola half evoo, stayed nice and liquidy after being in the fridge overnight.

Black Bean and Salsa Soup
Surprisingly delicious and soo easy to make! The soup was a little thinner than I liked when it came out of the food processor, but adding 1/2 tbsp of cornstarch dissolved with water to the soup when heating up did the trick! I take it to work I'm a thermos for a cheap and filling lunch.

Hash Brown Casserole II
This is a great recipe. I make it with just a couple of adjustments. I have found it is just as good without the 3/4 cup butter, so I leave that out and I also do not top with cornflakes, because I don't care for the texture they give to the dish. Thanks for posting!
