2018 Vegan Month of Food is Here!
I have always enjoyed cooking and baking but found, since becoming a vegan, that I am now much more creative in the kitchen. I completed the Rouxbe Professional Plant-Based Certification in 2016, and I just finished the Essential Vegan Desserts with Fran Costigan (it was a summer of sweets for sure!). My goal for MoFo is to show how creative you can be in the kitchen, but not have to spend hours cooking.
Cooking is not only my comfort zone and my escape from everyday hassles, but it is also my creative outlet. I love experimenting with new flavors and cooking techniques. But I also enjoy cooking simple meals that make my family happy. Earlier this year, my husband found he has a gluten sensitivity, so I have been learning the ways of gluten-free cooking and baking. It is pretty simple, but I haven’t mastered a gluten-free loaf of bread yet! Most of what you will find this month will be gluten-free, but not everything. You will also see my southern roots coming through in my cooking. For me, you can’t go wrong with a good bowl of comfort food or Tex-Mex.
Here is a sneak peek of what I have in store for you this month –
