Blogging 101: No. 1 Introduce Yourself

Hey everyone!

Welcome to my vegan blog. This is my second blog, but the first blog I have made on and my first blog strictly dedicated to one aspect of my life—Food. Vegan food in particular. I have made this blog for three reasons:

  1. I have attempted to become a vegan various times in my life, but always fail upon return home to Chicago Pizza and my parents well stocked fridge full of delicious cheeses. (Or drunken decision making when taking care of late-night munchies.) So, accepting that it is a hard goal to achieve I am instead becoming more conscious as time goes on, and this blog will help inspire me to cook yummy vegan food.

  2. I love to cook and being unemployed I have more time in my own kitchen to fool around.

  3. I am in a paid psychology experiment about food and the brain, and I believe some documenting will be beneficial on my part.

For the purpose of this blog I will only document vegan meals I make/purchase (and seeing as I never have dairy in my own house that should not be too hard.) I received two vegan cookbooks from my friends and family for my birthday and the holidays including La Dolce Vegan! from my wonderful friends and artists Sara Larson and Hank Weintraub. And Vegan with a Vengeance from my Grandma. And will share recipes from various cookbooks, other blogs, and my imagination.

Let's get started!

Kerry! This is a great idea. My roommate and I have both of those cookbooks. Love <3. We're gonna check in all the time to see what you're cookin! And if we make anything super awesome and vegan, we'll share.

-ps- a way to cure your Chicago pizza blues- get a cheeseless pizza. So tasty.
