Welcome to A. Cook in the Making!

My name is Ashley Cook (A. Cook, get it? Get it? Ha).  I am 30 years old and hail from New Jersey (in the middle, on the Shore).  My wonderful husband, H (an omnivore), and I are both lawyers in the greater Boston area. In January 2015, we welcomed our beautiful son, Baby H, into the world.

We live in the MetroWest suburbs with our fur-baby, Stewie.

To learn more about me personally, check out this post or this one.

On this blog you’ll find lots of recipes, fun stories, and tips on prioritizing good eating, even with a hectic work and social schedule.  My focus is on preparing delicious, nourishing vegan food in a way that is economical as to both cost and time, and tasty to vegans and non-vegans alike.

In addition to my own original recipes, I frequently post about recipes from cookbooks as well as those I’ve pooled from various blogs and websites over the years.  Check out some of my favorite blogs by clicking the links in the toolbar on the right side of the page.

I sincerely hope you enjoy the content you find here.  I love reading comments and welcome any questions you may have!  See my Contact/Social Media page for more details on how to get in touch with me.

  1. Hey, Ashley! Just came across your blog after your sister posted a link to it on Facebook. We went to college together and were both in the same a cappella group. I’m glad she posted the link – I’m always up for finding new blogs to read!

  2. Hey there Ashley! I just discovered your blog via the potluck. I can’t believe I never found you before – your blog is wonderful! Anyway, you’ve got lots of great cookbooks listed here. I think I might have to ask for one or two of them for Christmas! I’m so glad I found you – it’s a pleasure to e-meet you. Celeste 🙂

  4. Hello Ashley,

    I am Noa Berger, VizEat’s Community Manager (http://bit.ly/Wf1vx3). We connect locals and travellers who’d like to discover a new culture with hosts who welcome them at their home around a meal.

    Using VizEat is very easy and straightforward: hosts post their meal (this could also be an aperitif, brunch, wine & cheese, etc.) select a date & price, choose their guests and then share an authentic moment around a home cooked meal!

    I love your blog and so would be delighted to discuss a potential partnership. There are numerous mutually beneficial opportunities that we can present to you.

    Would you be available for a 10 minute chat so that I can give you more details about the partnership and what we are proposing?

    We look forward to welcoming you on board!

    Kind regards,

    Noa Berger
    Community Manager
