    I am not much on cooking but one of your recipes recommended using curry. I gave it a try and it really changed the taste of my vegetables and made them much more enjoyable. I also used it on my sweet potato. Yum

    Omg where have you been all my life!? Ive been trying my best to find new vegan dishes that i like. Im not vegan currently. Its really hard for me to make the transition because i have so many food issues. And the one thing that has seemed to work is making everything taste like mexican food. And you made 14 all in one spot! Yay!
