Superstar VegWebber of the Week: lebkuchen!

This week's Superstar VegWebber is lebkuchen (http://vegweb.com/index.php?action=profile;u=92371)! She's a dynamo in Cookbook Lab (http://vegweb.com/index.php?board=806.0), cooking up a storm for the greater good! Her Appetite Reduction reviews have been leading me in the right direction for quite some time. Genius! I also just purchased 1,000 Vegan Recipes so I have a feeling I'm going to get even more familiar with her awesomeness! So many thanks to lebkuchen for being a brilliant recipe tester and reviewer! Oh, and for also being on Team Tempeh! 

VegWebber since? December 2006, when I was under my former name, Veggeroni...I was reborn as Lebkuchen in 2008

Vegetarian, Vegan or ? Vegan

Where do you call home? Rhode Island, which I just learned yesterday has the longest official state name (The State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations)...probably to compensate for our small size!

What do you do when you're not on VegWeb? chase after my 2-year-old son Jackson! I also love running, hiking, reading cookbooks, and watching Alfred Hitchcock movies and Bravo

Do you have blog or website? I have a blog set up, but have yet to make my first post!

Do you tweet? goodness, no...you're talking to a girl who still uses her VCR and doesn't have TiVo!:)

One unique thing should know about you? I was the only girl to play in my city's Babe Ruth baseball league

What’s the best thing about being vegan? (if you are!) My body just feels cleaner and lighter, and I lost 30 pounds

Favorite romantic recipe on VegWeb? When I think of a romantic night at home, I always want to make Moroccan food and eat it in front of my fireplace! So even though it's not from VegWeb, I'd have to say the Moroccan Vegetable Tagine from Vegan with a Vengeance

Favorite recipe on VegWeb to make for non-vegans to show them how amazing vegan food can be? Incredible Vegan Carrot Cake...even my sister-in-law, who told me she hates carrots, pineapple, walnuts, and coconut, loves this cake!

Favorite healthy recipe on VegWeb? Best Avocado Sandwich, Period. I absolutely love this and have made this more than any other recipe on VegWeb!

Favorite VegWeb recipe for spring? Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble, because I use rhubarb from my garden!

One thing you wish you could make vegan but haven’t succeeded at yet? Boston Cream Pie

#1 Cooking secret/tip? Read through a recipe a couple of times before you start so you can accurately gauge how long it'll take to get ready. The prep times listed for recipes are often inaccurate!!

Best music to cook by? Vanessa Carlton, the Twilight soundtrack, and Christian Hill Community Church's worship team

Three people you'd most like to have dinner with? Isa Chandra Moskowitz, Tom Colicchio, and Bethenny Frankel...I think that would be a fun evening!

All time favorite restaurant? I only ate there once, but it was incredible...Pure Food and Wine in NYC

French fries or ice cream? Can I say a smoothie instead? I have a smoothie everyday and it makes me so happy!

Soy milk, rice milk, almond milk? Almond milk...yum!

Tofu, tempeh, or seitan? Tempeh all the way...I love everything about it!

congrats!

I was using a super agar at that time, so my creme set a bit TOO much. Still delicious.
