Hi!  I'm Varu.

I'm a writer, attorney, and mom living in Washington, D.C.  I'm not a chef, but I can relate to the challenges of having a hectic life, trying to be a somewhat healthy vegetarian, and not having a lot of time to cook.  I love discovering and sharing tricks to cooking easy vegetarian food, while trying to balance all that other life stuff.
