My regular readers know that I am not the queen of cooking. I'm not very good at it, I make huge messes, and I just don't have the patience to see cooking projects through to the end like I do design projects. My husband is (thankfully) an amazing chef, but when he's on the road with the band, I live on a diet of salad, take-out, and Amy's Organics frozen dinners.
Lately however, I've felt a strange pull to give this whole cooking thing another chance. Maybe it's because fall is around the corner and having a kitchen full of pots brewing and yummy smells just goes well with cooler weather. Or maybe it's because I have a baby on the way, and this whole nesting things that comes along with that inherently includes cooking meals. Whatever the reason, I've found myself paying a lot more attention to recipes I stumble upon online, and feeling more inclined than ever to try to create them myself.
I've been a vegetarian for almost 25 years, and it's amazing how far veggie recipes have come. These 10 in particular stood out to me as looking especially delicious, and I plan to try out all of them in the coming weeks. I just need to decide which one to do first. Which ones look the best to you?
