I live in beautiful Portland Oregon with my partner. I try to live frugally and eat healthy. I cook a lot and bake a lot.
Over the last 2-3 years I've read a lot on diet, nutrition, healthy eating and healthy living. I've slowly changed over to non-toxic hand soap, toothpaste, and cleaning supplies. I also don't buy things with high fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners or colors or any type of MSG. We eat mostly whole wheat breads and no cookies or donuts. I gave up drinking diet anything and colas of all sorts on May 25, 2006.
I have two current favorite cookbooks. One is called "Vegan with a Vengeance" by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and the other is "Table for Two" by Joanne Stepaniak.
From VwaV I found a great way to make brussels sprouts, which before I could never stand. Also pizza sauce, a great pizza dough, a chickpea broccoli casserole and wonderful peanut butter oatmeal cookies. From Table for Two, I got the 1000 island dressing recipe I use for salad dressing. Also a non dairy potato corn chowder.
I love shrimp, especially grilled or scampi. Not too fond of shrimp cocktail, although I'll eat it. I love thick creamy chicken soups. I love chicken of just about any sort. I don't like ham except for one recipe I have.
