About this Cook
I was born in Canada in an eclectic area of Ontario where the multi-cultural population introduced me to some amazing and fabulously authentic cooking, but I have to say of all the cooking I have done, Southern cooking is by far my favorite. I am still working on making the perfect buscuit.
My favorite things to cook
It changes but right now I am leaning to make bread. I have mastered a great rustic italian loaf, a white bread machine loaf, soft sweet dinner rolls, and whole wheat pita bread.... still working on the buscuit.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas cookies :) I love all the holiday traditional meals and the seasonal dishes.
My cooking triumphs
Enjoying the process, keeping it simple, and sharing the meal with family and friends. That being said, I have found it easier not to put more than 1 or 2 new recipes into any menu.
My cooking tragedies
I have burnt pots beyond recognition, made pies that were more like soup, dropped entire dishes, oversalted, underbaked, and overcooked, but once I caught a pot of grease on fire which i prompltly grabbed and slung out the front door. Everyone was a little shook up but no real damage done, and the kids just said, "wowwwwww!". Fortunately it was later, dark and the neighbors were not out.

Sugar Cookie Icing
Great consistency, good tasting icing. I used heavy cream instead of milk and it worked just fine. I drizzed it over warm sugar cookies for a quick upgrade on some refrigerator cookie dough.
