Mamma who loves to cook!
About this Cook
I am a 27 year old mother of two girls, ages 6 and 4. I am a newfie from a great hometown called Glenwood, located in central Newfoundland. I have a huge supportive family who are aware of my love for cooking. I love to cook & try anything new. My greatest fan is my mother! Cory, my husband, is used to plain cooking & not too optimistic on trying new things. He eats what I cook but I am also suportive on understanding wheather he liked it or not, & if it's a keeper or a failure. My father loves all kinds of food, so its easy to please him with food. Both of our girls eat whatever is put in front of them, which is a bonus. I guess I just simply love to cook because it fits my lifestyle & homelife. It's my favourite thing to do because its relaxing and it makes me happy!
My favorite things to cook
Anything with chicken, easy desserts that don 't need to be made the night-before, anything beefy or with pork...I have never tried cooking lamb or veal. Casseroles are my specialty & homemade desserts. My family LOVES my homemade mushroom caps & my stove-top rice pudding. I am willing to try cooking anything new!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Jiggs Dinner=a newfie tradition which is a whole meal made in one big pot. salt beef is the main ingredient; cured navel beef in a salt brine, usually bought in a vacuum pack or a "beef bucket". I will have to put the complete recipe on my recipe profile for viewing.
My cooking triumphs
I have accomplished an awesome stove-top rice pudding for my father. Cory loves my homemade hambergers & battered cod fish & chips with my homemade tarter sauce. My "Lazy beef stroganoff" we also love.
My cooking tragedies
Hahhaa!!! I suck at making a homemade pie crust. I accidently forgot about my beautiful mushroom caps in the oven one evening & they went to moosh & I found them floating in a pool of mushroom-water, soaked in cheese. I am not an expert on making homemade soups. I do plan to get better at the things I would like to!

Pork Chops German Style
Something different from you average fried pork chop. I tried this recipe for the first time and my family enjoyed it; especially my toughest critic my dad.
