I have a preference for bright colored, child-like goodies - there is something so dazzling about candy decorations and bright colored frosting! My brother got married at the spur of the moment (no, his wife was not preggers) and thus he asked me to bake a wedding cake. (I actually offered.)… MORE

About this Cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is renowned for being picky eaters - I am a vegetarian, my mum and sister are allergic to milk, my mum refuses to eat gluten and has cholesterol problems, and my brother only eats Chinese pork dumplings. Not surprisingly nobody likes to invite us over for holiday meals or dinner parties. I have been working on this problem for years.
My cooking triumphs
Dairy-free cheesecake.
My cooking tragedies
I cannot boil rice.

Easy Morning Glory Muffins
Replaced a half cup of the flour with whole wheat. Instead of raisins - i am not a big fan of raisins - i added a half cups of hemp seeds. It isn't a substitute but it made them a little bit more nutritious :-)

Low-Fat Apple Spice Muffins
These muffins were tasty, though I made several notable alterations: 1) I only had vanilla non-fat yogurt, so I reduced the sugar to 2/3c. 2) I used all-purpose flour and added 2/3c of oats to the liquid mixture - whole wheat flour would have been desirable but I didn't have any :( 3) I 2 whole apples, which amounted to approximately 1.5c. Next time I might consider adding some baking powder. It is true that they are a bit "gummy" as opposed to crumbly, but I don't find that to be a big turn off.

Simple Black-Eyed Pea Salad
This recipe was disappointing. As a vegetarian, I love a good bean salad. Some of the best bean salads I know of happen to be very simple as well, so the lack of ingredients didn't surprise me. However, this bean salad is BLAND. I am not posting a photo because my "simple" salad turned out to be a tad more complex - I kept adding different ingredients and herbs in order to salvage the salad to no avail. Don't make this salad - there are so many better ones.
