I worked as a cook in a fine dining restaurant for 8 years. I loved it but wanted to do something else for a living, I'm now a Registered Massage Therapist in Ontario. I still love to cook at home and I watch the Food Network all the time
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook anything Italian, Asian or anything that is healthy. I am looking to get into some Indian cooking....gotta love that spice! I enjoy making lower fat and calorie dessert once in a while.
My cooking triumphs
I think pretty much anything I create is a triumph lol, how ever, I discovered the absolute best way to cook a whole chicken, in the slow cooker! After being in there for 8 hours or so in a nice sauce it just falls apart. If you love crispy chicken skin you obviously won't get it cooking it this way but trust me, you wont miss it.
My cooking tragedies
I attempted to make lemon meringue pie from scratch for my boyfriends birthday one year (lemon meringue is his fav). The final product came out absolutly wonderful after I pulled it out of the oven from browning the meringue but I didn't think to put the cooled down pie into the fridge to firm it up and it turned out more like lemon pudding after all that work! Oh well, still taste great.
