I am a person who loves to cook and bake. I am trying to cut down on the baking because nobody in my family needs it (including me). My husband has recently been diagnosed as a type 2 diabetic so I am trying to use recipes that conform to the Canadian Diabetic 'n method of eating.
My favorite things to cook
I like to experiment with recipes and adjust them to my family's taste. I am trying to improve on the 'brown is better' style of cooking and am adjusting favorite recipes to whole wheat, etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Any meal is a favorite family meal in this house. I like to cook with a lot of spices but not hot spices. I prefer a 'suggestion' of spice rather than a whole lot of it. My father was a professional chef and taught me a lot about cooking.
My cooking triumphs
A 'German' meal for a friend who was turning 50. I served 76 people and everyone was most complimentary.
My cooking tragedies
The time that I had company for dinner and the stove just decided to stop working and to top that off, the power went off half way through cooking a roast in the microwave. We ended up with ham sandwiches and an apple pie I had baked earlier. It was a good thing that they were very good friends.
We shared lots of laughs that night.
