About this Cook
I'm a nurse with a wonderful husband and beautiful son. I'm french-canadian.
My favorite things to cook
I love trying new food. Lately I've been trying a lot of French recipes, with great success. I like rich, good ingredients to cook with. I like to make everything from scratch, with the exception of bread...have not attempted it yet, but I will.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Tourtière, ragoût, sucre à la crème,rhubarb pie, blueberry desserts, roasts(my family) Swedish dishes (husband's family)
My cooking tragedies
The first couple of times I tried to make pie crust...Did not turn out at all. The last time I attempted was a success, with 2 simple tips from my mother: use a pastry blender (well worth the $5) and follow the recipe on the back of the Tenderflake box. No sweat!

Cabbage Roll Casserole
Delicious and easy. I sauteed the onion with the beef and added 2 cloves of garlic. I also added some Worcestershire sauce to the meat mixture.

Banana Chocolate Chip Cake
Turned out nice and moist. I followed some other reviewers' advice and used baking soda instead of baking powder. I used 2 bananas. I baked it in an 8x11 dish. Will make again!
