About this Cook
i am a recent graduate from college, and am now a video freelancer. i love to cook for my boyfriend (he doesn't eat fruits or vegetables so it makes it very challenging!) and make dinner for friends. music and hot chocolate are my passions!
My favorite things to cook
i love to bake and i make exquisite chocolate chunk cookies! i bought The Complete Canadian Living Baking Book and it has become my personal bible!
My favorite family cooking traditions
whenever my mum makes a pie crust, i will always take the leftover dough and make pet-de-soeur (translated to "nun farts"). it's almost like a mini cinnamon roll.
My cooking triumphs
for thanksgiving with friends 2009 i made a great homemade pumpkin pie and was very proud of myself.
My cooking tragedies
i decided i would make muffins for a bake sale at school and left out sour cream (i was thinking, who in the world puts sour cream in muffins!?) and they basically exploded in my oven, oozed all over the sides of the pan, onto the bottom of the oven, and then i had to clean it up! *note to self, don't leave out two cups of wet ingredients ever again*

Cinnamon-Roasted Almonds
the perfect snack that we took camping! it's great to munch while at the beach or taking a hike. make sure to stir them often and absolutely use parchment paper; saves you a lot of mess.

Rhubarb Cake I
totally delicious. i made this for mothers day and my mum thought it was excellent. so excellent that she has asked me to make another one today. i read some of the other reviews, and two cups is not enough. the first time i made it i used three cups and that should definitely be the minimum. i'm using three again this time because i think it's a good balance but feel free to use four or more! also, keep an eye on your cake! in my oven, it didn't even take forty minutes to bake. i didn't keep an eye on it and the top layer got a little too dark. which reminds me, the topping (which is technically a streusel) is AMAZING. great to have on top. the crunch mixed with the moist cake is perfect.
