Hi, my name is Melissa and I’ve been a vegan for about ten years. A Kansas native, I now live in the mountains of Western Pennsylvania where I work as an academic librarian. In addition to my love of cooking and eating (of course), I like reading, traveling, and hiking, biking, and playing tennis with my partner. This blog will chronicle my cooking and baking trials, both whimsical and well-thought out. You’ll see my favorite recipes from blogs and cookbooks and, on occasion, something all my own.
