Love cooking old favourites and trying something new. My husband and I both enjoy cooking and like to keep things varied and fresh.
My favorite things to cook
Roasted Chicken with lemon and garlic and compound butter under the skin. Makes the chicken very moist and flavourful.
Soup...any kind of soup. My kids love most of the soups I make. Chicken, Corn Chowder, Curried Squash with Apple are just a few that I make regularly.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mum used to make stew every Sunday for lunch, but when we came to Canada she only made it at Christmas. Both my brother and I now make the same stew for Christmas brunch. Odd...I know.
My cooking triumphs
My husband's mother used to make him Butterscotch Meringue Pie every year for his birthday. After she passed away we never had it any more. One year I made the attempt and it turn out ok, but he cried when he saw that I had made the effort for him.
My cooking tragedies
I've had too many to mention...but at least I like to experiment.
