Who’s this Priyanka?

Hello foodies!

My name is Priyanka, but you can call me Pri! I’m 22 23 years old and was born and brought up in Staten Island, NY (no, I do not visit the Jersey Shore!). I recently graduated more than a year ago 2 years ago from Boston University with a BA in Economics and I work as an analyst.  Aside from all that economic mumbo-jumbo and business modeling I do all day, one of my passions is cooking! I love it as much as I love animals! My specialty is vegetarian cooking- it has endless possibilities!

I’ve started this blog to get people, especially the younger generation, to become more comfortable with vegetarian cooking while using exotic ingredients and flavors. Also, all that economic mumbo-jumbo comes in handy, because I’ll be sharing some tips and tricks on how to stay within budget-for your wallet AND pant size! I hope you like what I put out there! Please send me any recipes/ideas/amazing foodie inspirations that you have!

Trust me.. I’ll leave you feeling really hungry after you’ve read a post or 2 :-p

<3 Pri

    Any tips for the vegetarian on the go?

  2. October 7, 2010 1:15 pm

    yes definitely! For breakfast (if you eat eggs) you can make my healthy eggwhite and cheese on a roll and wrap it in foil (i take that work and eat it on the bus!), for lunch you can wrap up the Mediterranean veggie burger in foil (to be fast just replace the grilled onions with raw onions, or take them out altogether!), and I’m going to be posting a variety of lunch and snack options to ear throughout the day! Let me know if this helps :)

    Glad I found you-you’re so young, pretty, an economist, a great cook and a vegetarian-wow! Although I’m a nonveg, I’d like to turn vegetarian one day and I’m going to look to your blog for more inspiration for that :-)…great blog!

    Loving your recipes, and your amazing efforts into making it worth reading. If you are interested I could repost some of your recipes on The Cooking Channel. The whole idea of cooking channel is hosting recipes worthy of posting. So you are more then welcome. Just contact me on the site if you want.

    great recipes Pri!!!

    Well, basicly you just did your share. I am asking permission since I had some other girl blaming me of plagiarism or something (Im dutch). So I removed it, and asking for permission, which is pretty logical. If you think about it. Anyway, I will just post your recipes, from a to z , not all in one go, just while I work on it, I will post some of yours too, and we do a little blogroll ofcourse, I will do it anyway. So just sit back and watch the posts on the cooking channel, one little sidenote: I use related image + related links, hope thats okay. Its all for seo reasons. Have a great day and I will keep in touch about the developments, you just keep on cooking!

      I saw the links- looks good! Are you putting a linkback to my site/blog? If so, where can I find it, because I don’t see it anywhere! Where it’s written “By chefPriyanka” the “chefPriyanka” should be a link to my blog. At least, that’s would I would do!

    Hi! I’m doing the Liebster award challenge at the moment – a way for bloggers to network and get to know each other and as part of it, I’ve nominated you for a Liebster Award! There’s more info about what this involves, including 10 ‘Getting to Know You’ questions here:

    Looking forward to reading more from you,


    ps – Still *loving* that peppermint lolly recipe. I got SO many compliments for them in my Christmas hampers I made. I dusted some with a little bit of dessicated/shredded coconut to look like snow!
