About this Cook
Single mom of two. We are lacto-ovo-pisci-vegetarian, but I have tried to eat meat now and then, without liking it. Kids do not like meat. I specialize in Desi food, Mediterranean, and budget-friendly (WIC) foods. I do not have a lot of time to cook, but it is something I enjoy. Unfortunately my kids are too young to enjoy food yet. I intensely dislike cooking for just one person and aving tons of leftovers. I also recommend trying vegan and non-meat options to see if you find something healthier to try in your own lifestyle.
My favorite things to cook
Mediterranean (I do try mediterranean meat recipes on occasion), and fiber-protein rich power foods. I am trying more bean and more dehydrated products these days, as I prepare for off-grid life. I want to find suitable recipes for dutch oven, fire pits, and wood stove (indoors winter) recipes and foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
4-H and kids getting involved into food prep.
My cooking triumphs
Learning authentic Desi food including the breads. Popovers. Thai spices. Cut and freeze your cilantro same day you buy it (and other herbs too).
My cooking tragedies
I'm terrible at pancakes, mini waffle machine, and steel pans for meats (it sticks). Too much tahini in the hummus tastes really gross. Many undercooked and overcooked things thrown out. Wasting so much produce and food really bugs me.

Surprise Banana Cake
Great recipe. Mine finished 5 minutes earlier than stated time. Very nice, and I topped mine with duncan hines' cream cheese frosting. Not phenomenal as in trying to impress someone. I did add some diverse autumnal spices (cinnamon and nutmeg to be precise) however it would be fine without them too. Mine cooked really dark on the top shelf in the oven.

Zucchini Puffs
Super tasty (used bisquick) and added salt to the finished product after fried. i like it and will make this simple 'zucchini pancake' again. however i gave it only 4 because it is unhealthy. i was able to make them but the last batch burned b/c they cook very very fast (faster on outside than in). definitely recommend u give this 1 a try. can be served with a variey of dpping sauces too.
