About this Cook
In a past life, I must've been a chef. In this one, I'm a writer. I never really got into cooking until right after college living on my own. Now, I can't get enough of it.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook with lamb, it's my favorite meat. I'm always looking for new recipes that use it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking runs in my family. During the holidays, I'm always helping out with the cooking. For Thanksgiving, I'm always in charge of dessert and make a delicious pumpkin cheesecake (I found the recipe here).

Slow Cooker Chicken and Noodles
I loved this recipe. I added fresh mushrooms and carrots so I could get a few more vegetables in. It turned out great, and my one-year old son could not get enough of this. So easy to make, and so delicious.

Atomic Canuck Chili
This is my go-to chili recipe. I don't like beans, so I made it without any beans and nobody even noticed they were missing because of all the veggies. And I used Newcastle beer instead. It won second place at my work chili cook-off, and I'm entering it at my new job's cook-off next week to see how it'll do.

Clam Linguine
This was absolutely delicious and flavorful. I was feeling lazy, so instead of fresh tomatoes I just used a can of diced tomatoes with garlic and onions. Came out just fine. I still used additional fresh garlic and more than was called for since I love garlic. I'll be making again.
