About this Cook
I love to cook for family and friends.
My favorite things to cook
Pies, grilled steaks, hot wings - from scratch, homemade burgers... Least favourite are vegetables - I can never seem to come up with something creative with them. I usually serve raw or steamed.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holiday foods - turkey, stuffing, gravy and pies.
My cooking triumphs
Canned pie filling - so nice to have homemade fruit pie filling on hand. Baked chicken wings - so good! Potato Wedges - simple and satisfying. Trying a new recipe and nailing it - very satisfying.
My cooking tragedies
There have been a few. But you don't learn if you don't try new recipes. Sometimes they turn out, sometimes they don't. But next time, you will know what to do differently.

Banana Cream Pie I
Excellent, even though I forgot the vanilla (doh!). I used corn starch as recommended in the notes above - 3 TBSP instead of 1/3 cup flour, as I agree that corn starch is better for puddings. I also used crushed vanilla wafers mixed with 6 TBSP melted butter baked for 5 min at 350°F (recommended by another reviewer). I didn't bake mine either, to avoid a rubbery layer. I will most definitely make this again, I can see that one would need to learn to gauge when to stop cooking the pudding mix. Mine could have been just a bit firmer, but it was firm enough that it did hold a pie shape (sort of sloughed a bit). Maybe baking it would have helped this. The bananas on the bottom added enough banana flavour that it wasn't apparent there wasn't any vanilla or banana flavouring in the actual pudding. I only ended up using about two bananas. I sliced enough to cover the bottom of the pie plate (before the pudding was added) and then served with a couple rounds on each slice.

Roasted Garlic Lemon Broccoli
I found the lemon juice too sour. I think I would make this again but without the lemon juice. Maybe serve it on the side for those who want some.

Ooey-Gooey Cinnamon Buns
Best one I have found yet. Rose beautifully, even when I kept them in the fridge overnight and baked them Christmas a.m. I didn't make any changes and the only thing I might try is adding raisins since we like them in cinnamon buns.
