Gemüse is the German word for vegetable and paired with "musings" pretty much describes what's going on in my brain most of the time!

My Nutty Neighbor This is Squirrelly, the baby squirrel we rescued four years ago. She just had her fourth birthday. She's very photogenic and possibly the most photographed squirrel EVER since we've been taking tons of pictures of her ever since she was little. She's very used to us pointing a little black box in her direction. But give her a few walnuts, she'll let you take as many pictures as you want. The fact that she responds to me calling her name has gotten a few stares from people passing by on the street. More on Squirrelly later as I'm writing a book about the experience!
I've been vegetarian for 12 years, vegan for three. I love cooking and exploring new tastes and flavors. I do like to travel and cooking is a way for me to travel in times when I've got to be home! I'm an occassional writer..I've written a travel tips article for VegNews in the past as well as many business publications. An adopted family of degus ("the Goos"..two sets of three brothers), two tanks of goldfish, and a bevy of bushy-tailed squirrels in the backyard keep us busy. After we rescued a baby squirrel in '04 we have become somewhat of the local experts on squirrels. We jokingly refer to ourselves as The Cambridge 911 Squirrel Rescue Squad. Matching jackets are in the works! =)
