About this Cook
Born and grown up in Germany, Married to a wonderful canadian, I am living in Canada. 2 small kids (ages 2 and 6) I am a fulltime stay at home Mom. When I have time I love reading, spending time on the computer etc.
My favorite things to cook
German dishes (when I'm homesick), what ever fits into our sometimes hectic life style usually a mix of German Canadian and international recipes. I love making special birthday cakes, I made Caterpillars, FLowerboxes, a Ladybug, a Hovercraft, Rocket from the little Einsteins, a Butterfly and Blue and Magenta from Blues Clues.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The region I am from is called Schwaben and we do have some recipes like Lentils with Spatzle, Maultaschen etc. Maybe one day I'll post them. Sometimes it's a big challenge to do certain recipes since we don't get the same ingredients and it takes me sometimes year to perfect the recipe so it's just like home.
My cooking triumphs
Any dish that pleases my eaters, guests etc. I introduced my canadian husband to lots of variety and international recipes. His tastes in Food changed and he is a much less picky eater. I can't complain about my kids. They even like veggies.
My cooking tragedies
Well once in a while, a dish totally goes down the drain and it usually crushes me. I take a lot of pride in doing a good job and since I'm not working at my chosen job to stay home with the kids, it is really one of the things I am good at, so when it turns out bad it's a big blow to my self esteem. My husband is wonderful since he usually just says: Out of all the hundreds of meals you cooked for me, you maybe ruined 10, so just forget about it. Let's order in. I love him for it even more.

Fluffy French Toast
I had bought some bread and it was left too close to a heat vent and it turned hard. So I used it to make french Toast - my family gave this recipe the thumbs up and they gobbled up the toast. It's a keeper. Thanks for sharing
