Since I've recently "come out" as a vegetarian to myself and the rest of my world after more than a year of gradual transition, I've been giving some thought to the content of my recipe list over there on the left. It's occurred to me to wonder if I should take down the ones with meat and dairy that I won't be making anymore.
Of course this is my blog and I can do whatever I want, but for now my intention is to leave it as is. I can think of few things more personal and individual than someone's dietary choices. Although I have made mine for a variety of reasons, including my own health and my evolving views on animal welfare, I am not here to try to drag all of you along with me.
If my older recipes are useful to you and you can get enjoyment from them, there they are! I wouldn't have posted them if I hadn't liked them at the time, and many of them date back to my mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and beyond.
I have a big stack of vegan cookbooks on my coffee table right now and I'm going to spend the next several months trying to establish a good variety of new favorite dishes I can make. As with my recent tofu-topped pizza recipe, I'm looking forward to discovering new dishes to share that veg and omnivores alike can enjoy and I'll add them to the sidebar list as they're published.
Hope you like vegetables, beans and grains!
