Vegan Betty Crocker

Creature Talk

My friends and family are shocked and my boyfriend has started calling me Vegan Betty Crocker. I never used to bake. Ever. I think there were 2 main things that kept me from baking: 1) baked goods only lead me to eating more junk food, and 2) eggs. Eggs gross me out - always have. Every time I would eat them in my pre-vegan days, I’d feel sick afterward. Of course I couldn’t taste them in a cake or anything, but I didn’t really like working with them anyway.

Is there a birder in the United States who is not familiar with the art of Charley Harper?
