About this Cook
I am truly grateful for my loving family, including our 'Feline Four' and life's adventures! I am learning to keep the good energy flowing, even in the face of inevitable challenges; learning to co-create with the help of the wisdom of the Universe and never giving up!! Learning healing Reiki has been a gift. I hold a M.A. in Educational Psychology but experience is always the best teacher. Life is every changing process where the quality of the journey is more important than the destination. What goes around, comes around sometimes in surprising ways - so stick to the high road!
My favorite things to cook
Oh . . . no contest: Deserts, Muffins & other breakfast goodies. However, I am learning to enjoy cooking veggie dishes and main course entrees, like Salmon Souffle. 'All Recipes' is a favourite haunt of mine to sample and surprise my family with new dishes. I really appreciate the helpful comments posted by others, which I always review. Thank goodness, my Mom is the chef in our family!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom's baking and her traditional recipes - hard to beat; some of which I will contribute to this site - a New Years, 2009 resolution!! Hmmmm starting with the incredibly delicious Chocolate Cake with Eagle Brand Icing and a layer of Peppermint Butter Cream Icing underneath - drooling yet????
My cooking triumphs
Any dish as long as it is not burned!
My cooking tragedies
Please . . . I don't want to remember, LOL!!

Zucchini Pineapple Bread
Super duper - thanks Jolin! Had 2 overripe bananas so through those in, too. Did in Muffin tins - easier to share with neighbours!

Peach Berry Cobbler
I doubled the recipe knowing how delish this Peach/Blueberry Cobbler was the first time! Thanks for wonderful recipe, Amy. As you suggested I used lots of cinnamon for the topping with brown sugar. Depending on how juicy your fruit is, as mine were from the Okanagan orchards - you might want to use more cornstarch. Ovens all vary in temperatures; mine was done in under 30 mins in a 3qt glass dish, so best to test a few minutes before cooking time. The aroma is scrumptious. A definite vanilla ice cream topper!

Lemon Blueberry Bread
Baked this yummy loaf this morning for Mother's Day using big, juicy cultured frozen blueberries. Mom's assessment said it all: "It's perfect!" Thanks Julianne for a winning, 'keeper' recipe that whipped up in a breeze.
