There were mostly Betty Crocker classics and some family recipes my mother’s dinner repertoire but once in a while when she didn’t feel like cooking, that’s when I’d request "favoritenoodle"- macaroni and cheese out of a blue box. You know the kind I’m talking about. I had a made up my own damn name for it. Those noodles seasoned with a salty packet of orange powder still stir up a whole host of warm and fuzzy feelings.
My palette has since changed and my mac and cheese doesn’t come out of a box anymore. I’ve been a cook and caterer, a published food writer, and in recent years I eat almost entirely plant-based. I love making delicious and beautiful veg-forward food at home and supporting my favorite local restaurants, bars, stores and farms. I eat out probably more than I should but that doesn’t stop me.
Favoritenoodle is where I post plant-based takes on childhood favorites, vegan restaurant recipe copy-cats, and everything in between. I hope you'll leave this site feeling warm and fuzzy and ready to make some delicious food.
