Finally, some summer weather! What a rainy, blah June it was here in Vernon. I probably shouldn't complain though because soon the temperatures will start to soar to 40 plus degrees C and I'll be wishing for the rain! Thank goodness for the awesome lakes the Okanagan has! BBQ season hit in… MORE

As a shift worker, a casual one at that, I am at the mercy of the scheduling office of the Health Authority for which I work. On one hand I absolutely love being casual. I spent the years since university (BSc in Kinesiology) in 9 to 5, Monday to Friday jobs as an accounting clerk and… MORE

About Me
I am a nurse and am the mother to 3 fantastic young boys ages 13, 9, and 8
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy trying new recipes. There are not many dishes that I repeat regularly. They have to be really special to get placed in the Family Favorites Scrapbook that I have created. I make a killer lasagna and I my chili is to die for (in my opinion). I also have a rather extensive cookbook collection that I have to regularly weed out due to space constrictions.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We live only a few blocks from my parents and we alternate each year who makes Thanksgiving and Christmas. Whoever does Thanksgiving has a rest for Christmas and vice versa.
My cooking tragedies
My husband broke the tip of my good Henkel's chef's knife trying to separate frozen sausages.
