My mother-in-law’s family has a lovely cottage on the Mill River
in Prince Edward Island .
We try to get there as much as we can during the summer months to enjoy the scenery, family, golf and, of course, great food!
Im not one for golf so when they others are off wacki
Fresh Malpeque Oysters...
MAN! I love to eat...most of all I love trying new things! I have always said I will try any food TWICE...but I have recently gone VEGETARIAN so I guess that wont apply anymore....hhhmmmm...
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking Italian!
Probably because I am Italian ;)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My fav would be...Christmas Eve. Dad goes and buys every fish he can find like squid, smelts, mussles clams and oysters and we chow down in a BIG way!
He makes this FANtastic home made pasta with a tomato, basil, clam sauce...TO DIE FOR!
My cooking tragedies
My first pie for a family gathering...I got the recipe out of a magazine..."peaches and cream".
It all went great! I peeled the freshest, juiciest peaches I could find...I followed the recipe to a tee because I wasnt too familiar with baking at all. I even laticed the top...it looked exactly like the pic in the magazine...until I put my big foot through it!
I put it on the floor of the car, then got out to put the dogs in the back...when I jumped back in to bring it to my parents house I stepped right onto it! Dont worry I STILL ate it :)
