About this Cook
I'm a wife, a mum and a damned good cook. My family eats mostly veggie fare, though we're not averse to the occasional free-range chicken or unmedicated cow when our budget allows.
My favorite things to cook
I love to go wild in the kitchen - I rarely take a recipe at face-value and always add my own flair. I'll cook almost anything - so I have to say my favourite things to cook are beautiful, fresh, organic veggies from local farmers.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I haven't started any with my little family yet - but my son (20 months) has started to "help" me bake cookies.
My cooking triumphs
I can make something edible out of almost anything - I am like MacGuyver in the kitchen, baby! (See tragedies for the exception).
My cooking tragedies
there was one time I made a casserole with various foods from our freezer (this was back when I was 18, broke and living with a roommate) which included tater-tots, something with chicken, some frozen veggies and as I recall, some cheese whiz... need I say more? I also have a bad habit of burning thick soups - my husband and I have started referring to these bi-monthly tragedies as "divorce soup" because if I were to serve it to him he'd be sure to divorce me.

Bobbie's Oatmeal Cookies
this is a great, basic oatmeal cookie recipe that I have had a lot of success "altering" to suit my cravings and pantry. today I used 1/3c. w/w flour, 1/3c. wheat germ, 1/3 c. bran and 1c. white flour. I then ommited the nuts and raisins, but added 1c. mini chocolate chips and 1c. peanut butter chips... this produced such crumbly dough that I thought I had really blown it - but 9 mins in the on and *presto* the best damned cookies I have ever baked! Thanks for the recipe.
