Lorem Ipsum writes in his blog that April is National Grilled Cheese Month. In commemoration, I fixed myself a grilled cheese sandwich for lunch yesterday. (See below for description and photo.) Grilled cheese is one of the first sandwiches I learned how to make, and is probably the… MORE

Brrrr...It's windy as heck and there is a light dusting of snow on the ground this morning. Didn't spring start last week? Mother Nature did not get the memo! If this weather keeps up all day, tonight might be a good one to stay in and do dinner and a flick. So I thought I'd draw up my… MORE

A glimpse inside the pantry (or fridge, spice rack, and cellar) of any household can show you the kind of cook who lives there. I think of my dad's pantry and kitchen cabinets, haphazardly stuffed to the gills with all manners of bottles and jars of the preserves, spices, and dried goods that… MORE

Last night I made my first-ever April Fool's Day-themed meal out of meatloaf and mashed potatoes. I'm not a fan of meatloaf myself, but Connie Rempel's recipe here at AR is nice, and to me it doesn't really taste like meatloaf. Then again, the first time I ever had meatloaf was when… MORE

About Me
I'm newly (and happily!) single, with two awesome kids and a good relationship with my ex. Things have changed a lot for me lately but one happy side effect of being single is having more time to try different recipes and experiment in the kitchen! And yes, my ex still gets to sample my cooking. (He does need all the help he can get...)
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook practically everything. When baking, I tend to dial back the sugar and have a fondness for nuts, fruits, and spices in my baked treats.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I hope to start some more family cooking traditions with my children. My son sometimes helps with dinner and desserts. My daughter is a little too young but she is already very interested in helping in kitchen when mommy cooks and bakes. She has her own play kitchen too!
My cooking triumphs
Making flaky pastry crust, getting my ex and son to eat (and like) fish, and learning how to make yeast breads without a machine. Getting my ex to try 'weird' food (e.g., different ethnic foods) was also a triumph. Most of all, learning to actually like cooking is the biggest triumph. I used to despise it!
My cooking tragedies
One of the first meals I ever made was risotto. It tasted good but it was way too sticky! Oh, and there was the time I had a cake baking in the oven and no one noticed that the fuse had blown halfway through the cooking time. A few years ago I tried to make doubles (Trinidadian snack food with chick peas and fried bread) and it was awful. The chickpeas were too oily, the bread not enough so; it wasn't spicy enough, and the bread was weird and misshapen.
