Well... I don't really live in Yellow Knife. You need more options under hobbies and interests or let us pick them. You know,like, body building, jeep fixing, Jeeps, car collecting, Zippo lighter collecting, Football [playing NOT watching], Soccer, and other goodies that someone might do ahem.. Like me.
My favorite things to cook
Food? It beats car bumpers.
My favorite family cooking traditions
3 bottles of ketchup for spaghetti or Chili or meatloaf .. That my mother's own recipe. And I ain't joking. I honestly learned to cook in self defense.
My cooking triumphs
??? I didn't burn the water? The big one? I cooked Thanksgiving dinner for my Mother one year she had to work on Thanksgiving morning. I was 11 years old. The only thing frozen in that was dessert. Roast Chicken, mash potatoes [from scratch], another veggie, tomato soup starter and of course thawed and baked dessert which was pumpkin pie.
My cooking tragedies
If you can eat it, it ain't no tragedy. So far I'm batting 1000
