Who is this Veggie Wonder?
I am a lover of food. I think about it all the time. I daydream and dream-dream about it. I often spend hours in the food store reading and comparing ingredients and labels, deciding which item to try next. Sometimes (okay, often!) I think about food when I should be working. I am a wannabe vegetarian.
Why this blog?
I'm trying to expand my culinary horizons. This blog documents these foodie adventures. I love new ingredients. I'm a bit of a health nut. I'm also trying to eat more veggies. When cooked properly, they can be wonderful and delicious - hence the name "Veggie Wonder."
What is your cooking philosophy?
I'm not a fan of measuring or cleanup. By day I do work (science-type) in which I must be incredibly careful and precise in my approach, so my cooking adventures provide an opportunity to do be incredibly creative and spontaneous. In general I try to recreate recipes with as few steps-and as little cleanup!-as possible. Sometimes things work out splendidly, and other times they bomb. Sometimes things are documented well, others less so. This blog is a record of these culinary adventures, and so most of the recipes here are inexact - ideas, really, to help inspire your own adventures in the kitchen...
