About this Cook
I am a shift working mother of a three year old, so fast nutritious and yummy are my 3 goals.
My favorite things to cook
Chicken on the grill, anything in the slow cooker, and sweet and savoury goodies in the oven... I am especially fond of taking the traditional and adding a modern spin on it
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking with my little girl. My mom did it with me and I continue to do it with her. I also believe that getting your children involved in the kitchen leads to healthy habits in the future, so we always prepare any meals together that we can - I slice and dice, she puts things in the pot or into the mixing bowl... And she always gets a taste
My cooking triumphs
Learning to grill anything on the BBQ as we all know the BBQ is a mans world lol!
My cooking tragedies
Mac and cheese in the slow cooker :( It looked and tasted like gruel.

Maple Banana Bread
Good recipe but I'm a tweaker so... I used dark brown sugar instead of white sugar, added an extra black banana (so 3 total for extra moistness and flavour) and sprinkled an extra 1/8 cup of walnuts and about 1 1/2 tbsp of brown sugar on top. It was super extra delish!!
