About this Cook
I am married to a Macedonian Greek man who loves European style cooking we have 2 little ones and it is always a challenge around this house finding meals that please my low cal, low fat needs and his high cal, high fat, wants.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake sweets. I enjoy making fudge, cheesecakes, cookies bars baklava anything with walnuts and brown sugar! I like to cook too........but not every day!
My favorite family cooking traditions
growing up in the multi cultural city of Toronto our school friends were many different nationalities. We really enjoyed going to each others homes and trying all the "yummy" ethnic cuisine. I have learned to make so many of these special dishes and hope to learn more.
My cooking triumphs
A delicious Carrot Cake for our family Christmas party of 50
My cooking tragedies
Anything in the crock pot...the family just shudders when they see that crock pot out! ( so if you really have a winning recipe in the crockpot I am willing to try it!!) I WON'T GIVE UP

Easy Decadent Truffles
Thank-you so much for sharing this delicious, simple and quick truffle recipe. I promised my 7yr old we would make truffles today and I was dreading it all morning, I was delighted to find an all recipes video based on this recipe. We decided to take the advice from numerous others and re-dipped the truffles in the extra melted chocolate which was left over after we measured three cups. I do have some advice, my truffles were very large and way too rich for what I enjoy but, my daughter made small ones formed with her tiny hands and they were the perfect portion size for the extreme sweet

My Best Clam Chowder
Delicious on a cold winter evening, Fresh Bakery bread and butter are a must! Make sure you cube the potatoes and don't let them over-cook

Awesome Pasta Salad
This recipe relies heavily on the type of Italian dressing you select. I make my own oil, vinegar, salt, pepper and a pinch of sugar. I make my dressing ahead of time and add until the salad is coated to my desired consistency.
