About this Cook
Age: 33 Profession: Graphic Designer (on a very long maternity leave) Kids: 3 boys and 1 girl Husband: Ryan I love to cook. I'm in my element when I'm in the kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts are my favourite, but I can make just about anything. I love to take on new recipes that are intimidating and surprise my husband with new meals.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from a French Canadian family who believe good food is as important as air and water. We can't live without it. Our family conversations revolve around cooking. Christmas is a big one.
My cooking triumphs
I've been making cheesecakes since I was 12. Most people who taste it say it's the best. I hope so. I am great at cooking for large groups of people without breaking a sweat. I can also make some very creative meals with few ingredients.
My cooking tragedies
Hmmmm…not sure that I've had many. I've made a few mediocre salad dressings.

Pineapple Cheesecake Squares
Great recipe. I used a graham/coconut crust instead, but both are great.

Fresh Pineapple Upside Down Cake
Needed something in a pinch this was a good basic recipe and it baked beautifully. I didn't have any fresh so I used canned pineapple rings.

Aunt Zula's Christmas Cutouts
Great recipe. I used butter instead of shortening. Not too sweet, which is great because everyone usually adds icing etc. Perfect when you're in a time crunch because they don't need to be chilled.
