About Me

Here at Sensei Cooks I write about my adventures in the kitchen and sometimes in the dojo.

I have a love for cooking and want to explore all the possible facets of it. Leave no stone unturned so to speak.

I am Vegan and love all types of vegan cooking.

I love the process of cooking. Being in the moment. Sort of Zen and the Art of Cooking.

These fast and simple recipes are great. […]

Pasta and Cheddar Cheese Sauce

I have found myself starting to make recipes I have already blogged about. I need to break out of my safety zone and go crazy. Well actually we have been trying to work through our freezers and fridges so I end up making things that I know because we have the same ingredients. We have […]

Buttermilk Biscuits

Belle and Sean love the biscuits you get at a local chicken take out place “Chick’n’Joy” and I want to reproduce them. I guess I will have to ask them how they do it. I found this recipe for buttermilk biscuits from Thomas Keller. I found them a wee bit salty and even Belle (there […]
