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.

Vegan Home-Made Pasta

Well I said yesterday I should make some Vegan home-made pasta and so this morning I did. Not bad at all. It was easy to make and tastes great. Dylan said it tastes the same as the egg pasta I usually made. I put everything in the food processor out of habit but I am […]

Tibetan Flatbread

This is a dead simple, fast and savoury bread from Jacques Pépin. I have the DVD set but I can’t remember this recipe on it. The book has far more recipes. I happen to see it at the library when I took Dylan for his Unschoolers/Homeschoolers Gym class at the Recreation Centre (the library is […]

Tofu and Vegetable Lo Mein

Wow, one week of being Vegan and feeling great. The biggest hurdle, What to put in my morning coffee? I made the mistake the first day of using vanilla soy milk, yuch! but then bought unsweetened soy milk, perfect. My daughter decided to go vegetarian a while ago and now has decided to go vegan. […]

Individual Vegetable Pot Pies

As you all know my daughter, Hayley is a vegetarian. I really enjoy reading vegetarian cookbooks and Vegan cookbooks. They are fascinating. The flavours etc they come up with make me wish the year I decided to be vegetarian it did not mean “I am giving up meat” but really meant I wanted to eat […]

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 […]

Potato Roesti

It has been a while since I managed the time to get a post up, but here it is. I was bored with things we had for lunch and then I remembered a book Belle picked up at the library so I started going through and found this version of a Roesti. I made them […]

Jamie’s Spaghetti All’Arrabiata

One of our all time favourite quick meals is Jamie’s Spaghetti All’Arrabiata. Now you can’t actually find this recipe on his web site. It was in a book called “My Last Supper” by Melanie Dunea. This is one of 50 different chefs giving what they would have for a last supper. We love it. Today […]

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 […]

Frisée-Apple Salad

Looking through cookbooks and magazines everyday, I often see salads using Frisée, but have never seen it in the grocery store. The other day in Loblaws (national grocery store) I saw Frisée and decided to buy it and then figure out a recipe for it.

Belle like savoury things but I have discovered/learned over the […]

Vegetables with Tofu & Spinach (Curry)

In the last 2 years I have discovered I love curry. Years ago I disliked it to the max, the smell would make me sick. Don’t know why. Then I discovered Thai curry, wow and now since I have been cooking I have discovered Indian curries. I love them all. I love going into the […]
