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.

They call this Pad Thai & Chicken/Beef/Shrimp Curry. I have tried several times to recreate their dish with no success. One more try tonight and we hit nailed […]

Spaghetti with Creamy Braised Garlic and Leeks

I love spaghetti, especially home made spaghetti, well actually any home made pasta always tastes way better then store bought hard stuff. However this time I used the store bought hard stuff – due to time restrictions. Next and there will be a next time because everyone loved it, I will use some sort of […]

Quick Skillet Mac and Cheese

So anyone who has read any of my posts on Muse in the Kitchen or here knows that my 6 1/2 year old, Dylan lives on Mac and Cheese. We put sweet potato purée or butternut squash into it but still he has it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Okay so not quite so much […]
