My Boy & I
About this Cook
I live in Lac La Biche AB with my husband and 3.5 year old son. I'm a stay at home mom and I love cooking meals for people. My family is always greatful that I love to cook!
My favorite things to cook
Pasta is my love. I also love making risotto, especially when having guests over because they're always so impressed. I also use my slowcooker a lot and BBQ season is my favorite time of year! I'm a daring cook and love to try new things.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I absolutly LOVE my Mom's Thanksgiving dinner and look forward to it every year.
My cooking triumphs
I've got my son eating some very strange foods (for a 3 year old) and I'm pretty impressed with the recipes I try that he actually eats!
My cooking tragedies
One year my Mom put the Thanksgiving turkey in the oven and went out. I came over later on in the afternoon and thought it was weird that I couldn't smell the turkey. Well, it turns out that she forgot to turn the oven on!! We were excepting 20 people over for dinner!

Greek Lentil Soup (Fakes)
I don't usually like to be a recipe tweaker but I just had to with this one. It was very bland. I ended up having to add a lot of salt, pepper, and cayenne. I think next time I might substitute the water with vegetable or chicken broth.

Raw Cucumber Soup (Gluten and Dairy-Free)
I saw a lot of complaints about it being bland. Are people too scared to add their own seasoning? I had to adjust the seasoning a bit but ended up with a tasty soup!

Low Carb Jambalaya
This is by far my favorite recipe! My husband and I absolutely love it!! I always make a huge pot and freeze it for easy meals. The only thing I add to it is some chopped up spinach for that extra healthiness! But this recipe is amazing. I recommend it to everyone!
