About this Cook
I'm Canadian American who loves to cook and eating good food. My husband calls me an epicurian, and I don't argue. My parents were raised all over the world, and their food experiences have heavily influenced what I enjoy. I'm an archaeologist and spend a lot of time on the road, so when I am at home and have a chance to cook, I relish it.
My favorite things to cook
I love making crepes. When I studied abroad in France, some buddies of mine showed me how to do it, and I always have fun with it. I love my crepe pan.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I honestly don't think I have any. We always just ate whatever mom or dad felt like cooking, and I would help.
My cooking triumphs
I made the ceviche recipe which I recently submitted for a department party when I was in graduate school and tons of people asked me for the recipe afterwards.
My cooking tragedies
I made something for yet another departmental party in grad school, right when I started and didn't know anyone, and my husband suggested spinach lasagna, which we made together. The lasagna tasted great, but we forgot to rinse the spinach, and didn't realize it until we got home afterwards. It was terribly embarrassing

Instant Vegetable Patties
These are great and so easy! I like to add a bit more spices and up the green peas to a cup, but that's just personal preference.

Pumpkin Soup
This soup is rapidly becoming a family favorite. The first time I made it I didn't have any nutmeg on hand, but I did have garam masala and it went even better with the soup. Also, 2% or skim milk work just fine if you're watching calories. Also, if you overcook the veggies a bit, the onions get caramelized and add a nice richness to the soup

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos
This was absolutely fabulous. They freeze well, so they're excellent to keep on hand. They would be gigantic with 10" tortillas- we use the medium- sized ones and that is plenty for a meal after toppings are added. Like other reviewers, I used black beans instead of kidney beans and was pleased with the results.
