I am a senior living in Woodville, Ontario Canada. I work part time at Joyc's Place Restaurant in Kirkfield, On. I'm a breakfast cook on the weekends but love to create and prepare specials for the afternoon crowd. We prepare our own roast beef, chicken and turkey, along with homemade burgers, fries and soups.
I also love to do renovations to my house, I do flooring, drywall, paint,trim and build closets and doors. That being said, I have been under renovation for quite a while lol.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try new recipes and will try just about anything once. My son, who takes care of me and helps me with renos, just loves the word "experiment",he knows I'm trying out a new recipe. Most are successful, some, not so much, but they always taste good, even though they may not look the way they should.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Roast Beef with roasted potatoes, peas, pan gravy, and of course huge Yorkshire Pudding, some hot mustard and really hot horseradish round off this family favorite.
My cooking tragedies
I was making cookies and I used icing sugar instead of flour. Well, the result was tasty but definitely not cookies, lol, so I crumbled it up and used it as a crunchy dessert topping. Sometimes you have to improvise.
