About the Author

Cooking has always been important to me, as it was always a personal sharing of my family with each other.  The love of cooking has been in my family for many generations, especially on my father’s side of the family.  My grandmother used to cook with her grandmother Elizabeth, an immigrant to the US from Metzenseifen in modern day Slovakia.  I remember cooking with my grandmother and great grandmother as well.  Still, the biggest influence I have had is my step-grandfather, George Hohne.  Whenever I visited, I always lurked in the kitchen where he was cooking something or another.

A little about me, I was born in Ashtabula, Ohio and raised in Conyers, Georgia.  I went to college at Presbyterian College in Clinton, South Carolina where I majored in Music.  I came to New York City for grad school in 2004, and now live in Astoria, New York.  Cooking is more than a hobby for me, as it is a way of sharing a little about myself with other people.  I do not have any professional training in cooking.  I love herbs and garlic–you’ll see that in my recipes.

I hope to keep this blog Flexitarian, Vegetarian, and Vegan friendly with options and variations to suit those folks.  A visit to my Symbols page explains if a dish is Vegetarian or Vegan friendly or if there is a variation of a dish that makes it so.  Most of these variations are very basic–as in I have not started playing with meat-substitutes like seitan, tofu, or other meat substitutes.  That doesn’t mean I won’t tinker with the idea later on.  If you have ideas or suggestions to make a dish Vegetarian, etc., please contact me!

  1. I just printed the recipe for Cancun ceviche–and will try it soon. My husband is the cook–and always on the lookout for new recipes.
