About this Cook
I am retired, and enjoying life. My heritage is a mixture of french canadian and irish. A combination made in heaven.
My favorite things to cook
As a new englander I love seafood dishes and enjoy cooking anything from the sea. I like baking and making french bread is the best smelling thing to make.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The french in me loves the pork pies that I can remember my great grandmothers cooking at the holidays. But I also love the ragus and the stews that have been handed down.
My cooking triumphs
Had to bake a three tier circus wagon cake for my daughters 6th birthday. At the time I was a not so good cook/baker. But the cake was wonderful. I also had to make a cake for the youngest daughter, she wanted a castle with the turrets and drawbridge. My girls are adopted and are only 2 months apart. The youngest was also turning 6. So within two months I had 2 nervous breakdowns but the end results were priceless.
My cooking tragedies
When I was young and dumb the marketing world came out with the roasting bags for turkeys. Made my first turkey in a brown bag, followed the directions and blew the door off of the oven on my apartment sized stove because I neglected to pierce holes in the bag. But we still ate the turkey.

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken
This was okay but nothing to write home about. My brother never leaves any chicken for leftovers and we had leftovers.
