I love to cook

I came back from Japan and over the course of the last 16 months I have grown a love for cooking.

I make mostly "ethnic" foods. With some good old American classics. I love it because I'm vegetarian. A lot of people go on and on about how can I be a vegetarian. Well, if you tasted my amazing recipes, you wouldn't need your meat. I love soups. They are by far my favorite things to make.

Tonight, I made Indian food.

The top bowls are mulligatawny soup. The first time I made it, it was horrible. Tonight, it's pretty great. I will let Jon finalize that opinion. The bottom bowls are butter tofu curry. It's made from the same recipe as butter chicken curry. Naturally, I substituted the chicken for tofu.

Some others of my favorites:
These dishes above and below this text is a Korean dish called bibimbap. It usually includes beef, but of course, I leave it out. It's sooooo good!


Lentil Soup
So good that the first time Jon and I made it
we ate a whole pot. We've never accomplished that since.

I'm back folks!

I think I'm going to start blogging again. I miss it. I don't know if anyone actually will look at this anymore. But, it's worth a shot.

I started this blog when I was 22. Now, I'm 26. That's pretty crazy. For my 26th birthday, Jon took me to Point Au Roche lodge which is about 10 miles north of Plattsburgh. It's across from our favorite state park called Point Au Roche. This is where we have gone for many hikes and of course, this is where Jon proposed to me.

Jon had the room decorated so that it came with champagne, chocolate covered strawberries and candles. It was a rainy day, so we definitely took advantage of being inside the lodge more than being in the park.

I feel so fortunate to live in such a gorgeous part of the United States.
