A woman with a job and a husband and loads of chores and projects. Some days I can't wait to start cooking dinner and some days I can't face the kitchen at all.
My favorite things to cook
I grew up on the basics for every day eating, so I am always trying things that are not standard; Asian, Thai, Indian, French, Middle Eastern...but, I like short-cut recipes best!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pepere Bolduc's crepes
Mum's peanut brittle
Dad's Fish Chowder
Barb's Lobster Pie
Aunt Lill's Chocolate fudge
Aunt Irene's New Year Eve cookies
Aunt Georgette's Meat Pie (tourtiere)
My cooking triumphs
every time my meat, sauce and sides are correct and ready at the same time.
My cooking tragedies
too many to name and too sad to recount
