About this Cook
single mom of a teenage girl; full time ICU nurse in Toronto Ontario
My favorite things to cook
Italian, seafood, any delicious dessert!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Apple crisp, date squares, homemade raspberry jam. Christmas turkey and ham dinner with shortbread, plum pudding for dessert! Thanksgiving turkey dinner with pumpkin and lemon meringue pie and apple crisp for dessert....omg I'm drooling. Homemade and decorated birthday cakes; gingerbread houses at Christmas
My cooking triumphs
Gingerbread houses totally from scratch; white and whole wheat bread; chocolate cheesecake, pies, my family calls me mini Martha but really I just read carefully and pay attention!
My cooking tragedies
over done strip loin steaks that cost $20 each! A chicken/broccoli casserole that had way too much dijon and lemon....ugh.

Sweet Dinner Rolls
I give this 5 stars because my family gobbled them up but they are too sweet for my taste....I even cut the sugar down to 1/4 cup as the title "sweet" dinner rolls was a bit of a give away. Don't get me wrong, they are very good; next time I'll cut the sugar even more. If I were making cinnamon buns, on the other hand, the sugar content would be perfect at 1/4 cup. No bread machine either, let rise twice before baking.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup
Delicious! I too used chicken stock in place of water and cut down on the pepper but otherwise stuck to the recipe. Absolutely a keeper

Asparagus Quiche
Very good; I saute the asparagus with some garlic in EVOO instead of steaming but thats just taste preference. Switched out swiss for old cheddar as well, again taste preference
