I live in southern Ontario with my husband and two sons, Adam (6years old) and Cody (4 years old). I enjoy baking thrifty style, so my meals have to be cheap to make.
My favorite things to cook
anything sweet or filling enough that my husband complains of eating too much- mostly sweet treats, no rhyme or reason, just love baking cookies, cakes, pastries, candy, anything sweet!
My favorite family cooking traditions
strudel bakes at my Dad's house;
My Nana (my dad's mom) was born in Austria, but came over with her parents, brother and sister on one of the boats that landed in Ellis Island
recipe thats been passed down through many generations starting in Austria
My cooking triumphs
My sugar cookie baby rattles (see my photos) and my perfected chocolate cake and brownies recipe. Also I recently accomplished my Nana's rouladen recipe, without ever being given a recipe (posted a how-to on my blog). I can also do potato and sauerkraut strudel all by myself (blog how-to soon to come).
My cooking tragedies
burnt cookies all through childhood with my Dad's gas oven
