Superstar VegWebber of the Week: Catski!

This week we have another VegWebber from across the pond, Catski (http://vegweb.com/index.php?action=profile;u=73758)! She is also the creator of what might be the cutest cupcakes of all time (and a photo that I show to everyone when I'm showing off how awesome VegWeb is): http://vegweb.com/recipephotos/displayimage.php?pos=-16786! I mean, who can deny those awesome friendly zombie faces?? On top of that, Catski is super funny and adds a lot of sassy flavor (I can't believe I just typed that but it's true!) to the VegWeb forums. Check out her answers to the questionnaire below and then feel free to let her know how awesome she is and how much we all dig her. Cheers!

VegWebber since? June 2007

Vegetarian, Vegan or ? Vegetarian, although my cookbooks are vegan.

Where do you call home? Manchester, UK

What do you do when you're not on VegWeb? I study, play way too many computer games, volunteer for Oxfam, cook (and sometimes even clean!) and fritter away time on the Internet.

Do you have blog or website? Nope, sorry!

Do you tweet? I do, you can find me at twitter.com/x138

One unique thing should know about you? I played Alice in Wonderland in a school play when I was 13. And I know the Greek alphabet despite never having studying Greek.

What’s the best thing about being vegan? (if you are!) I love vegan baked goods. For some reason they come out great for me every time and vegan cakes don't go dry and crumbly within days.

Favorite romantic recipe on VegWeb? Spinach Salad with Orange-Soy Dressing, Candied Almonds and Sweet Potato Croutons. Admittedly I haven't made this but the awesome pictures and reviews make me think this would be a perfect light dinner for two :)

Favorite recipe on VegWeb to make for non-vegans to show them how amazing vegan food can be? AllyChristine's Thai-Inspired Veggie & Rice Soup. It's so great, I've made it several times with different ingredients and measurements and it never fails to wow people.

Any New Years' Resolutions? Work hard, play hard :)

One thing you wish you could make vegan but haven’t succeeded at yet? ... cheese. Heh.

#1 Cooking secret/tip? Don't set yourself on fire by accident. I can't stress this enough.

Best music to cook by? Anything upbeat - CK and the punk rawk VegWebbers will disown me but I love blasting Fall Out Boy when I cook. I mean... I AM TOTALLY METAL AND LISTEN TO SLAYER. Yeeaaah.

Three people you'd most like to have dinner with? Mark (dmarkd) because I don't get to see him enough, Maya Angelou because she'd have amazing stories to tell and advice to give, and - omg! - Robert Smith although I'd probably have to take a couple of Valium first. In fact, that would make a pretty fantastic dinner party. Especially if we all had a crack at the Valium.

All time favorite restaurant? DeMuths in Bath. Gorgeous seasonal vegan and vegetarian food: http://www.demuths.co.uk/about/introduction/

French fries or ice cream? Oh, torture me, why don't you? Can I have half of both? Um... okay, we'll go with fries (chips in England!) and I'll freeze some yoghurt instead.

Soy milk, rice milk, almond milk? Soy milk for everyday use, rice milk for drinking with cookies.

Tempeh, tofu or seitan? Tofu!

w00t!!  Congratulations!!!!

I love your cooking tip.  I came pretty close a couple of weeks ago.  LOL
