Welcome to Our Queens Kitchen! I’m Mona, the cook/photographer.


I live in Queens, New York with these two guys:

JaradPic OliverCloseup

Jarad (the human) and I  met in 2008, we’ve been together ever since. We’ve moved all over the country together but we finally found a place that feels perfectly like home. We adopted Oliver (the kitty) about a year ago. We sometimes joke that no matter where we live, I’m always cooking and Jarad’s always doing dishes.

I’m excited to share my new and old (all original) vegan recipes from our home base in the heart of Queens. We moved here from Brooklyn (by way of Boston and Austin), and we’re crazy about it.  I’m having so much fun shopping and cooking that I thought it was high time I put in a bit of extra effort to share it. My aim is to make frugal, healthy, vegan recipes for any home cook.
