About this Cook
I LOVE to cook (or else I wouldn't be here). I gain satisfaction by watching others gain satisfaction from my meals.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
Since I live in Canada my family cooking traditions were passed down from everywhere BUT Canada.
My cooking triumphs
Feeding over 100 people from a standard "urban/middle-class" kitchen on Thanksgiving.
My cooking tragedies
Don't want to talk about it. Still in therapy.

Sweet and Sour Meatballs
I made this recipe once for an anual family potluck. I was told to not attend again unless I had this recipe with me. The grape jelly throws everyone off I think. My co-worker said it sounded gross so I brought her some and she retracted everything she said. For the chili sauce I used 'Maggi Chilli Garlic Sauce' and for the Grape Jelly I used 'Western Family Grape Jelly' (if you live in Canada - Yes I live in Canada) then Western Family is from Save-On-Foods or I'm sure any grape jelly will do. I hope everyone enjoys. P.S. - This recipe is REALLY spicy using the hot sauce I recommend.

Honey Mustard Dressing II
I subbed a little honey dijon in place of some of the prepared mustard (maybe 1/3). This recipe is sooooooo good!!!

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
Way toooo good! I left out the nuts because my husband is a little fussy. The recipe still was perfect. I wouldn't change a thing (except the nuts).
