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!

Healthier Juicy Roasted Chicken
Chicken took longer that stated on recipe so vegetables were slightly overcooked.

Braised Balsamic Chicken
Everyone really liked this dish and complimented on how moist the chicken was. However, after trying it once the second time around I made a few adjustments. I found the rosemary totally overpowerd the other herbs (and I'm not really a huge fan of it) so I cut it in half. I put the oinions in raw because I don't like them too overcooked. And lastly, I added more balsamic (because I love it) and doubled the tomatoes so there was extra sauce which I used on rice. All in all, a very easy and yummy chicken dish!
