I am a true "Maritimer", very proud of my English heritage, LOVE to cook and experiment with new and mostly old recipes (my poor husband).
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook and bake just about anything, though I have some staples that I tend to stick to for my husbands sake; like sweet & sour meatballs, baked potatos, burgers, chicken parmesean, stuff like that.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas Time! Let the baking frenzy begin! My mom, grandmother, mother-in-law, my sister and I all go CRAZY this time of year and bake up a storm...cream cheese pound cake, mincemeat tarts, fruitcake(yes we LOVE fruitcake), cookies, loaves you nameit.
My cooking triumphs
I can make a mean roast turkey, and I feel the best carrot cake (thanks to this site).
My cooking tragedies
Sadly, pies. Not a very good pastry maker....but getting better!
