When I first started this blog, I thought I’d remain anonymous. No pictures. No names. Just delicious recipes. Looks like that plan didn’t work out too well!
So now you know something about me. I’m pretty shy. You’d probably never guess this from the blog, right? My mom commented on this recently, saying that to a blog reader who’d never met me I’d probably seem like the type to talk your ear off. Not so.
You’re here, so you probably want to know a few more things about me.
I’m Alissa. I started Connoisseurus Veg in February of 2013. Thanks so much for stopping by!
I started this blog as a way to share some of my favorite vegan recipes and inspire myself and others to create new ones. Cooking is a passion of mine. I have a few other passions as well. I love arts and crafts, usually taking lessons in some form or another. I can get down with some drawing, painting, needlework, basically anything that involves making pretty stuff! I’m also an avid yogi. I love to read.
I started this blog as a hobby, and at the time I was working as an intellectual property attorney. But once I started blogging I was hooked, and the blog grew and grew. I’d like to say it happened like magic, but in reality it was a ton of work (definitely a labor of love though). Eventually I was able to turn the blog into a full time business. I retired from the law, and here I am, blogging for a living and loving it.
I hope you enjoy this site and my recipes. Please leave me a comment here and there so I know how I’m doing!
