|Lookin' dumb and actin' stupid|
For me, at least in the beginning, it was primarily for health reasons and secondly for ethical reasons. Once I began to look into vegetarianism, searching for recipes and reading about it, my priorities quickly changed. The health reasons took a backseat and the ethical reason became much more important to me. Will I ever be a vegan? Probably. I'm just not ready for it yet.

Even though I cook constantly for the business, I still spend a lot of my free time standing in my kitchen at home trying new recipes I've never done before and creating recipes of my own. Hey, we've gotta eat too!
My idea here on this blog is to create recipes using simple, mostly easy to find ingredients. I want to create recipes that anyone, even non-vegetarians, would eat and not ever miss the meat. I've tried many of the meat substitutes such as seitan and tempeh, the Tofurkeys and fake hot dogs and I gotta say, they are pretty weird. Actually, gross is a better word. So I am going to mainly stay away from those ingredients simply because I don't like them.
This blog is merely a running chronicle of my journey through the world of vegetarianism. Hopefully you learn something and maybe get a chuckle or two as I post my findings here for your review. Enjoy.
