Long story: Vegetarian Ventures is a vegetarian food blog that shares vegetarian and vegan recipes with a twist of adventure and inspiration. I’m a 20-something year old, fresh out of college who lives in the heart (if you’d like to call it something of that kind) of the Midwest. I love to vegan bake, cook with far too many spices, play with my peanut butter lovin’ puppy (Tuko // Taco // Tofu), go on picnics, camp, and take road trip adventures (which draw me to inspirations for recipes like Migas and strawberry shortcake cake balls). I love things like wolves, dream catchers, cacti, and David Bowie so please don’t be alarmed if I throw in a glam rock picture or two. I’ve been a vegetarian for 10 years which has forced me to learn to cook for myself; however, I am nothing of an expert and am still learning everyday. This blog is here to motivate and push my cooking abilities while hopefully teaching all of you a few tips along the way. I am constantly seeking a healthier (but delicious!) cooking routine so come along and join in the journey with me!
