Well hello there! I’m Lauren and that’s me over there, diggin’ into a nice, big, heapin’ pile of chili cheese fries.
If you couldn’t tell already, I love food! I love writing about it, talking about it, cooking it, photographing it, and — uhhh, duhh — eating it.
I’m (mostly) a vegetarian, but I’ll try anything once; the more adventurous, the better! My culinary-related passions, in no particular order, include: potatoes (see photo), Anthony Bourdain, bacon, gravy, eating everything with chopsticks, sometimes being a vegan, siracha sauce, and keeping a well-stocked spice cabinet.
Sometimes (but not all the time), I do other things besides cook and eat. I play guitar. I used to play a lot of pool. I passively take an interest in baseball. Sometimes I go sailing. I’ve been to 11 countries and lived in 2, with about 130 more on my to-do list.
When I grow up, I’d like to travel the world and write about it. Or cook for people and write about it. Or plan lots of big, fun adventures for people… and write about it. But truth be told, I kind of hope I never grow up.
Some other things: I’ve folded more than 1000 paper cranes. I’m excited about Christmas 364 days of the year. I have a soft spot for slam poetry; like this or this. Sometimes I spend hours daydreaming up crazy “million dollar ideas” (ask me about Leftovers!).
Oh, and I have a job, too.
About “A Tale of Two Veggies”
These days, Two Veggies is just a regular ol’ food blog where I post pictures that make me hungry and vegetarian recipes that make my tummy happy. Occasionally you’ll see hints of my guilty pleasures: meat, alcohol, baking (badly)… but for the most part I’m all about making vegetarian twists on classic comfort foods. Enjoy!
