About me

Gender FEMALE
Location Lansdale, PA, United States
Introduction I became meat-free about 4 years ago, although I have dabbled with it before. I gave up eating meat for the following reasons: my dog Rigley (I wouldn’t dare think of eating him so why other animals), I got involved in animal rights, and I read the book Skinny Bitch (highly recommended, it will open your eyes) It is a step I had wanted to take since college but I had very limited options considering I am allergic to soy. I grew up eating meat and actually loved it. I have a Polish mom and an Italian dad. I love the traditional recipes that they taught me but they almost always called for some sort of meat product. It is my mission to recreate traditional family dishes and other meat dishes without meat for me while cooking the meat versions for my friends and family. It’s been an interesting journey to say the least, but to date I have been pretty successful.
Interests Baking, Cooking, playing with Rigley (my dog), spending time with my husband, family and friends, and traveling
