I live in Northern Canada, and love cooking as a way of creating comfort during long winters and short daylight. I have food allergies and cook wheat-free and mostly dairy-free. I use Allrecipes a lot, and am comfortable making substitutions with alternative ingredients.
My favorite things to cook
Comfort food is my favourite. That usually means a meat protein and carb combination. Either a Thai curry with jasmine rice, say, or meatloaf and twice baked potatoes. I'm also a huge fan of making (and eating) dessert.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have no favourite family cooking traditions. My mother cooked everything to please my father's palate, and that meant it was very well done. Doesn't matter what it was. There was no question as to whether it was cooked!
My cooking triumphs
Learning to become an expert cook in wheat- and dairy-free recipes.
My cooking tragedies
Not yet finding a satisfying macaroni and uncheese recipe.
