Welcome to my blog!

I love vegan food blogs. I love the pictures and getting recipe ideas and even reading about other people’s kitchen mishaps. I love it all, and the proof is in the way my Google Reader is consistently full. Seriously, I don’t think I’ve ever gotten my unread items below 300. But the thing is, I love READING vegan food blogs, and for the longest time it never even occurred to me to start my own. I mean, there are eleventy billion vegan bloggers out there, what could I possibly contribute to that talent pool? So I kept chugging along, modifying and creating recipes, and testing out new ideas on my husband, friends and dogs. Then something changed- we bought our first dSLR camera, and I discovered a love of food photography (please note I said “love of”, not “talent for creating”, ha ha ha), and I started posting food pics on my Facebook page. That was fun, but I wanted to talk about the recipe, how I made it, how much my husband loved it, and how much I enjoyed the whole process. I suppose you could say I had this burning desire to (over)share!

So here I am, launching my own blog, with both excitement and trepidation- excitement because it means I get to share my recipes and cooking exploits with the world… and trepidation because, well,what if no one cares about my recipes or exploits!? What if no one comes and reads my little blog? OMG, what if NO ONE LEAVES COMMENTS??

Well, I can’t worry about that. Forget “Build it and they will come”, this is “Cook it, take pictures of it and write something rather witty about it, and they will come!” Thank you so much for joining me on this little adventure šŸ™‚

    I will read your blog! I am excited that you have decided to share your recipes and photos with the world………or at least anyone that might be interest in reading a vegan blog. :o) You really should put your caramel apple recipe on here. Oh…….and all that greasy, battered goodness.

    Hello! I’ve been vegan for about 8 months now but haven’t really cooked a whole lot of vegan dishes/meals. Wanting to make seitan, I found your blog about a week ago and have decided to work my way through it from the start. Looks like a lot of great posts and I’m looking forward to it!
