Hi, I’m Cadry!
Welcome to my vegan recipe blog! I have been blogging at Cadry’s Kitchen since 2009. It’s where I share down-to-earth recipes, travel stories, and vegan insights. It’s also where you’ll find video cooking demonstrations, and even some comedy every now and again. (Visiting for the first time? Be sure to check out the Start Here page to see all of my favorite and/or most popular posts.)
I started Cadry’s Kitchen to show how easy and fun it is to live a compassionate lifestyle. It doesn’t take a lot of expensive ingredients or hours in the kitchen to make delicious food, and nothing feels better than eating peaceful, life-affirming meals.
I live with my husband, David, and our two kitties, Jezebel and Avon, in small town Iowa. While many people think that being vegan is solely for those living in vegan meccas like Los Angeles, New York City, Portland, and San Francisco, it can be done anywhere! As long as there is a grocery store, there is “vegan food.”
That said, one of my favorite things in the world is traveling, and David and I do as much of that as we can. We’re always eager to try new restaurants, explore other communities, and take in the beauty of the world around us. (You can check out all of our highlights on the Travel page.)
Other things I love include good mail days, hiking, biking, pottery, art fairs, farmers markets, Birds of Paradise, mountains, the ocean, tacos, sauerkraut, and cute dresses.
