About this Cook
To me cooking is all about love. My mom always baked her own bread and treats and put a tasty and nutritious home-made meal on the table every single night even though she always worked half-time plus. I can't ever hope to live up to that standard but I want to give my family the healthiest meals and the most delicious treats I can manage!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My nana's pastry, my mom's fresh-baked bread, my dad's gravy with a Sunday roast or holiday turkey. Mmmmmmmmm.

Zesty Quinoa Salad
This is a really excellent quinoa recipe. The lime and pepper flakes between them add enough zing to counter the natural bitterness that can sometimes turn people off quinoa. The salt called for is way too much for me; I suggest you salt to your own taste. I had to sub out the tomatoes because of an allergy in the family, and found that frozen sweet corn kernels fit in nicely. My 7-year-old (the one with the allergy) helped make the dressing and pronounced it "the best quinoa salad ever!" I think this will become a lunch-box staple!

Mom's Oatmeal Blueberry Pancakes
These were delicious! The batter was a bit harder to work with than your standard pancake batter, but with patience and a good flipping technique most of them turned out well - and even the "mistakes" tasted great anyway, maybe because they were fried in plenty of butter :-) I cut the sugar down to almost none and added some cinnamon (the blueberries add plenty of sweetness). A big hit with my 5-year-old; he didn't even ask for syrup! Definitely drop frozen blueberries in once they're in the pan - otherwise they will discolour the batter!

Very Easy Mushroom Barley Soup
This was really good but the leftovers were even better! Make a day ahead, you won't be disappointed! I added a bay leaf for flavour and next time will experiment a bit more. Rosemary? Garlic?
