Heres another dish I prepare over the last few days. I love to make soups, and I consider it one of my specialties. I can even get my husband, a pure meat and potatos man, and 2 year old to try and like almost all of my veggie soups, If they only knew what was in them! ;-) My Youngest Child, not my husband, thinks of my soups as "treats"! What more can a mom ask for then a healthy meal they ask for!


Chicken Vegetable Stir Fry

I Have more then a few recipes to add but the photos keep coming! been Real busy cooking this week, I will get to the recipes ai promise! :-) I know this blog is meant to discuss mostly Vegetarian cuisine, but my clients have some other demands sometimes, and as we all know in todays work world be flexible.

Welcome to my Vegetarian Cooking Blog. here you will find recipes, ideas, and discussions on eating and dieting, as well as tons of pictures of my food!

A Little about me! I attended the Natural Gourment Cooking School in NYC.

From there I started as a private chef for clients in around the NYC area! After moving to Los Angeles around 7 years ago, I continued that career, ending up cooking for some of the Worlds biggest Rock and TV Icons, Movie and Sport Stars, You Name it. But now I have the ability to give so many more the access to eating right, and even better for you-for Free! :-) SO check out the site as it grows, come back as more and more recipes (with pictures) are added. thanks and Bon Apetit
