About this Cook
I am in my mid thirties with two wonderful children. My wife loves my cooking as do my children. I attended high school in Etobicoke, Ontario and have lived in many different cities and towns. My mother was a pastry chef and my father was for a short time a chef before taking up Carpentry. So I got to learn many different aspects of cooking from the two of them.
My favorite things to cook
I mostly enjoy foreign and different meals. I also really enjoy making desserts and some breads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
At Christmas time the whole family used to get together and we'd have at least six or seven people in the kitchen. Now it is time to start a new tradition with my wife and children.
My cooking triumphs
I'd have to say that my best cooking triumph was a pot roast that I made. It came out better then I thought possible. I've also surprise myself with a Hungarian Tenderloin, awesome recipe.
My cooking tragedies
Alas my biggest tragedy has been a souffle. Total disaster. Recently I got a little to busy and left some sausages on the BBQ and well need I say more. Talk about charcoal.

French Silk Chocolate Pie
I decided to make a chocolate pie one day and came across this recipe. It came out perfect and was gone in a day. My whole family loved this pie. It has been a request every time I say i will make a pie. So far we have made 6 of them and I have made the recipes as directed and never had a problem with it at all. Would rate it higher in stars but I just can't do it.

Crustless Spinach Quiche
This was a delicious quiche. Very simple to make that my 3 and 5 year olds like to help as well.

Hawkeye Pork Roast
The mix of seasoning was very tasty and the roast came out nice and juicy. I added a pinch of salt to the rub and my family just loved it. My wife asked me to make this recipe every time I do a pork roast. Thank you for this recipe.
