Hello and welcome! My name is Mara, and I’m a Ph.D. student in Ann Arbor, Michigan, although I’m originally from California. For as long as I can remember, my mom has loved to bake and my dad has loved to cook, so naturally, I love to eat! Moving into my first apartment during college gave me the impetus I needed to start experimenting in the kitchen. Several years later, in the summer of 2013, I started this blog.
What you’ll find here are semi-vegetarian recipes (so no beef, pork, or lamb), as well as a number of completely vegetarian and vegan ones. Many of my recipes can easily be made dairy-free, since I myself and several of my family members and friends are lactose intolerant. Things you will not find here, since I have deep-seated aversions to them: fake cheese, seitan (sorry Dad!), cake pops, asparagus, and pears.
