My rating system - Very simple

1 star - Something wrong with the recipe.
Welcome to my page. The picture I have up is from when I visited Sleepy Hollow a few Halloweens back! It was taken on Washington Irving's back porch at his Sunnyside estate. Many people don't know that Irving actually resided in Sleepy Hollow, or that the tale of the Headless Horseman was a "real" local legend. As you can already tell I LOVE Halloween!
Most recent news. I'm married to a wonderful man who puts up with all my craziness! (and believe me, there's a lot of craziness)
I love to cook (obviously) Or I wouldn't be on Zaar! I could eat something new and different every night of the week, and very often we do. But sometimes you just need those homey "go to" recipes. Thanks to this site I have a few of those too ;)
I'm a vegetarian for 61/2 years about. I love it! I would never go back. I have now made the switch to vegan, and have never been more content with myself. Husband is still an omnivour, so we have the task of finding dishes that we both enjoy. I'm thankful he's very open minded!
My passions in life are definitely animals and the outdoors. I'm working toward getting my wildlife rehabilitation license right now, and would also like to work more with horses at some point soon. To work with both wild animals and horses would be nothing less then a true fairy tale for me.
I really live for changes and adventures (even if they are piddily, few and far between these days) I love traveling, learning new things and meeting new people.
I spend most of my free time in the summer wandering around the mountains, hiking, backpacking, camping, foraging for wild plants, swimming (I'm a water child, I will find water ANYWHERE), looking for old ruins (which there are plenty of here from the old rail lines and mines etc) Or hidden treasures (whether they be waterfalls, hidden paths or geocaches) I have an overactive imagination and can make pretty much anything into an epic journey. My friends would tell you I can take a 30 minute hike and turn it into a 3 hour escapade and they never know where the time goes, or what went wrong! lol What can I say? I'm part Fae or something lol
Favorite foods? That's rough since I like just about anything. Off the top of my head.
Muffins and Cupcakes
Veggie Sushi And Indian Food
Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
Foods I don't like -
asparagus (most of the time)
I'm A vegetarian 5 years this Halloween (2010) And I've had a lot of fun sort of relearning how to cook without meat, and discovering more and more wonderful foods that I never knew existed before. So I just love trying anything new!
A Big THANK YOU to all the other veggies on Zaar for posting their recipes and being there to answer questions when I've had them!! This site has definitely been a huge help to me!
As for dishes I'm known for -
Perogies (only one left in my family that makes them)
Salmon tartlets ( I don't eat them anymore but they're still an often request)
Ambrosia Fruit Salad (recipe posted on the site)
My friends would probably say what I'm really known for is my canning and campfire cooking.
I also love finding recipes with healthy mystery ingredients to feed to my picky eater friends (not known for that because they never find out lol)
