About this Cook
Working full time, with an 11-year-old son, who fortunately is very open to trying new things. I'm always looking for quick but flavourful meal ideas that I can whip up after getting home from work. I'll use some convenience foods, but at least part of the meal has to be from scratch.
My favorite things to cook
My specialty is a full Greek-style dinner - souvlaki, rice pilaf, roasted potatoes, Greek salad, tsatziki and hummus. I love to make soup, as it has so much room for improvisation. On the other hand, I don't really enjoy baking, though I do try to make muffins or quick breads every week for school lunches.

Barley Bake
Great side dish idea - I don't have enough good barley recipes! I added minced garlic during the sautéing step, and finished it with grated Asiago. Also, I waited until after it was cooked to sprinkle on the green onions. Served it alongside roasted salmon.

Frosted Banana Bars
Definitely a new family favourite! So quick and easy, with delicious results. I sprinkled chopped walnuts over the icing for a bit of crunch. Used light sour cream with no problems.

Cauliflower-Cheese Soup
Perfect texture - something that can be hard to get right with cauliflower soup. However, I added quite a bit more in terms of flavour - two minced cloves of garlic, which I sautéed with the onion at the beginning; and I added fresh thyme and sage from the garden when I simmered the vegetables, as well as a little hot sauce.
