Banana Crumb Muffins
About this Cook
I'm a chemistry major and I love food science. It really inspired me to start cooking. I've also loved watching Good Eats forever. I'm vegan because I want to live as cruelty-free as possible.
My favorite things to cook
I almost always cook on the stovetop. I like cooking things that are quick, easy, healthy, and flavorful. I love making sweet desserts too.
My cooking triumphs
As a self-taught cook, any dish that tastes good is a "triumph."
My cooking tragedies
My first few recipes from the BHG New Cookbook were awful. I had to eat them all myself because I was too ashamed to share them! I soon learned to look at a variety of sources instead of taking everything from one cookbook...

Pear Honey
Very tasty recipe, I made it as a vegan honey alternative. I made a batch using only 1 1/2 cups of pears (i.e. 2 pears), and it took maybe 1 hour and 20 minutes to finish. However, even though I finely chopped my pears, not all of them broke down. If you're doing a smaller batch, PLEASE put the pears in a blender or food processor before cooking! I tried processing it after and it puffed up, leaving me stuck with pear...icing. Batch ruined.

Fluffy Pancakes
I love this recipe. These pancakes are exactly what you'd hope for from a plain pancake recipe, and it works GREAT with vegan substitutions. I swapped out milk for soymilk, 1 egg for 1 tbs of flax + 1 tbs water, and butter for Earth Balance. These pancakes are very fluffy and so easy to put together. Add some berries and this recipe is perfect. I also like to add a scoop of flavored protein powder when I cook for myself. (Yummy protein pancakes are an awesome way to start a busy day.)

Great recipe. It does taste very similar to lobster. You don't even need to broil the fish. Instead of broiling, I melted 2-3 tbs of butter in the pan over medium-low heat and cooked the cod on both sides until it was slightly golden brown, adding paprika to one side. I also used Splenda instead of sugar in the water mix.
