I'm a health-conscious vegan with a serious sweet tooth. A lot of my first recipes on here weren't vegan, but they're family favorites that can be easily adapted. I'm broadening my horizons and learning how to a) cook easy but tasty food, and b) be patient and cook more time consuming dishes. I'm passionate about mathematics, yoga, tasty food, dancing, the love of my life (also known as Tim), and our cat Moo. I work in the math department of a small liberal arts college for now. I hope to get my PhD in pure math (not sure exactly which field yet). I'll try anything once (as long as it doesn't involve eating anything from anything with orifices). My favorite comfort food cookbooks are How it All Vegan and Vegan Vittles, which adapt a lot of familiar dishes into animal-friendly alternatives. I can usually be found curled up working on a proof or a good book. My biggest pet peeve is too much sugar in prepared food!
