Live in MW Ontario with my husband and 14 yr old son. I love to cook but am usually afraid of trying something new.
My favorite things to cook
Love to bake. After years of trying, I'm proud to say that I have mastered the perfect pie dough.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My parents came to Canada from Holland in the 50's. I love making some of the recipes my Mom brought from Holland. Specculas (a spice cookie) is one of my faves.
My cooking triumphs
When I finally mangaged to make a tender and flakey pie crust. My Mom showed me many times but I simply could not make it that way. Eventually found "my" way.
My cooking tragedies
NOt just cooking tragedies but also regrets... All those times my husband felt obligated to eat pies when the crust was tougher than leather. lol
