About this Cook
Hey everyone! I am a young cooking mama, and Im looking forward to great recipes and extending my knowledge!
My favorite things to cook
I like to go 'au piff' as we say here in Quebec. That basically means no measuring cups, spoons, just your instincts. So when I make meats (which is what I enjoy most) I love adding herbs and spices that either arent included in the recipe, or substitution for something people havent tried out. It almost always turns out excellent, and
My favorite family cooking traditions
When Christmas time comes, my grandmother makes all these delicious familly recipes, and I have just recently learnt the great familly secrets. Wonderful memories.
My cooking triumphs
The first supper I made for my fiancée`s family. I was always taught that another woman's kitchen is her sanctuay, and to never show your boyfriend's mother that you cook better than her. So the first time they let me cook, I was very nervous. And as they... arent very adept at cooking, they had NO HERBS AND SPICES. I had to run to my house to get everything,a nd back again. But the pork roast was a success!!
My cooking tragedies
Thefirst time I made grilled cheese, I thought you had to grill the cheese, without bread... *groaaan*

Chocolate Cake I
I really enjoyed making this cake with a few changes. I melted 1 pkg of Chipits milk chocolate chips, because that is what I had on hands (it comes to about 1 cup). I added 1/2 tsp of cinnamon, and added the sour cream last, after everything. I also added a strawberry puree filling after they were baked. Pretty decent base recipe to experiment on!
