Superstar VegWebber of the Week: veganmonster!

VeganMonster (;u=67889) is totally awesome in so many ways but I'd like to focus on 1) her awesome name and 2) OMG her food pics!!! She takes the most delicious food pictures! Often when I'm drooling over something on the site, I find out that it's something she photographed! On top of that, her recipe for Chicken Taquitos ( has gotten me through more than a few pot lucks. Yay veganmonster!!

VegWebber since? I've been a VegWebber since January 7th, 2007. I wish I would have known about this site long before that though...

Vegetarian, Vegan or ? I'm Vegan (five years now) and was Vegetarian for a couple of years before that.

Where do you call home? I live in Sun Valley, California. Sounds a lot nicer than it is (what with landfills and railroad tracks blocks away). =)

What do you do when you're not on VegWeb? When I'm not on VegWeb, I'm thinking about going on VegWeb or making recipes that I've copied down from VegWeb. Also work, go to school, concerts, tutor, watch way too many movies, and hang out/cook with friends.

Do you have a blog or website? I do not have a blog or website (I used to have a website devoted to my sister's vegan meatloaf but that was discontinued once geocities closed down here).

Do you tweet? I do not tweet (or at least not in the twitter-sense).

What's one unique thing about you? Don't know how unique it is but I am the ideal designated driver- I don't drink and can drive stick shift and automatic. =)

What's the best thing about being vegan? The best thing about being Vegan is knowing I'm not personally contributing to any of the senseless cruelty to animals. The awesome food's an added bonus.

Favorite romantic recipe? Hmm... tough one. I guess I'd have to say the 'Cinnamon Rolls' by Sneaky Greens with 'Cinnabun Icing' by deadbob9 (sorry, I don't know how to insert the actual link). Over a good cup of coffee...mmm...

Favorite recipe to convert carnivores? Again, I'll have to say 'Cinnamon Rolls' by Sneaky Greens... but only when topped with 'Cinnabun Icing' by deadbob9; they are a constant shock for non-vegans.

What's one recipe you have yet to veganize? I have yet to make an actually good caramel that has a good consistency... but NOT for lack of trying. I figure if Go Max Go can do it, so can I... eventually.

What's your number 1 cooking tip? Number 1 secret/tip when baking is that I always use a teensy more vanilla extract than called for (like 1/4-1/2 tsp.) but totally makes a difference... unless it's all in my head, haha.

Best Music to cook by? Best music to cook by would probably Alkaline Trio, Rise Against, or Beatles- hard to choose!

Who are three people you'd love to have dinner with? I would love to have dinner with Weird Al, Natalie Portman, and my vegan sister, Margaret/the1stdrop (especially if she was cooking!). Now that would be a fun!

All time favorite veg restaurant? All time favorite restaurant is Follow Your Heart in Canoga Park, California. Favorite dish there is the Grilled Chicken Sandwich... this survey is making me hungry.

Ice cream, or French fries? Ice cream, hands down. Especially my home-made blueberry cheesecake ice cream.

Soy, almond, or rice milk? Taste-wise and to just drink by itself, I would have to go with original Almond milk but they all have their different purposes in baking/cooking so I love all of them.

Tofu, tempeh, or seitan? Would have to be either tofu or seitan... do I have to choose?!?



hey!!! yea for you!


yah, congrats veganmonster! 
I'm gonna have to try those cinnamon rolls!!
You should come chat in the forums more, there are other superstars there to keep you company! ; )


Yay congrats!


I love when monsters get recognized!  Great taste in music too!


Wow, thank you... I feel so special now. =)

I do totally enjoy reading the different threads but am sorta shy so don't really contribute... but maybe the allure of other superstars will change that. ;)

I love when monsters get recognized!

Yes! I think everyone should just add 'monster' to their vegweb name... just makes everything a little more scarier/ exciting!

(I'm not good with links/inserting quotes so hopefully these show up okay!)


Yay sissy!  You are a superstar!  And not only because you single-handedly baked over 400 cookies and 300 or so cupcakes for my wedding.  That's besides the point.  And yes, your cinnamon rolls are definitely romantic... they make you wanna do things you wouldn't normally do.  But in a good way.  =)  Congrats on being the superstar vegwebber!  Now get back in the kitchen and bake something.  :)>>>


She's totally dope!
