About this Cook
I'm an adventurous eater and novice cook. The more things I try, the better I get!
My favorite things to cook
My favourite things to cook are pancakes for brunch. They are easy, filling, and can be made with so many variations.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Substituting ingredients if you don't have whatever you need for cooking in the house. Sometimes it works ... sometimes it doesn't.
My cooking triumphs
Baking my first loaf of bread
My cooking tragedies
I was using a new brand of Indian curry paste to make aloo gobi and the dish ended up so spicy that it was inedible. Never one to waste food, I poured some into a colander and rinsed off the sauce. The vegetables were edible, but barely.

Russian Mushroom and Potato Soup
Do not change a thing. This recipe is perfect as is. It's like cream of mushroom with extra hardiness. The fresh dill makes it yummy! I have also used frozen dill that we grow and keep in the freezer over the winter.

Banana Sour Cream Bread
I loved this bread! I halved the recipe and used 2 9X5 loaf pans. I used plain yogurt because I didn't have enough sour cream. The cinnamon/sugar dusting is key. I made the bread at 9 pm last night. By 9 am this morning there is only 1 loaf left ... and only 2 of us live here!

Black Bean Brownies
This is a fantastic recipe for guilt-free snacking. I use brown sugar for a little extra flavour and chew. Instead of sprinkling the chips on top, I melt them and stir them in to help bind the brownies. They are a little crumbly. I also add some chopped walnuts if there is some in the house.
