I am the mother of 2 grown boys and the wife of a man who loves to eat! This year is our 30th wedding anniversary. I am an artist and photographer, I love to draw, especially still life. I also do needlepoint, just to relax in the evening with a cup or two of green tea.
My favorite things to cook
I will cook anything with leftovers in the fridge. My favorites still lean toward the Italian dishes as well as the Mexican foods, but I adapt everything to what I can and can't eat. I can't eat salt, not too many carbs and not too much sugar.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Unfortunately, my kids are very picky so I let them eat what they want, usually pizza and poutine (from Quebec)! But my youngest will cook what I make.
My cooking triumphs
Homemade pizzas, fish dishes(Salmon and Talapia), and Chicken. My husband takes care of the Beef dishes, I don`t like beef very much! In my family I am known as the "Pastry Chef". I love all pastries and will go out of my way to cook them for my family, but my Lemon Merangue Pies and Key Lime Pies.
My cooking tragedies
All beef dishes in general.
