About this Cook
Single, working an 8 days on-6 days off shift, which in the freezing Canadian Winter when it is too cold to go outside can be really boring. My goal this winter is to finally start trying all the interesting recipes I've been saving! And finally learn to roast a chicken.
My favorite things to cook
Anything different and interesting, when the weather is cold and crummy I crave soups and stews. I'm trying to master cakes and decorating this year. I'm one of those people that is far too analytical to make things up as I go along - so I like to follow recipes to a "T" and then make changes I know I'll enjoy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother's annual holiday traditions.... We occasionally stray from the norm, but pumpkin squares always show up at Thanksgiving, Sex in a Pan always shows up at Christmas. If something I'm cooking reminds me of her, it makes me enjoy the food just a little bit more.
My cooking triumphs
Mastering my much famous and requested Caramel Squares - they are my crowning achievement.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I made Caramel Squares I accidentally put the base in a cookie sheet (that's what the recipe said!!!) and not in a 9x13 pan, I subsequently had a blonde moment and poured the caramel over top and it went everywhere - my Mom was so pissed. I quite often lose track of how many cups and teaspoons of something I've put in a mix - sometimes it works out okay - sometimes, not so much!

Mom's Creamy Tortellini Tomato Soup
This actually came out more like a pasta bake then a soup - but a few minor adjustments and it can be! But - as written, the recipe is delightful.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup
This was excellent! I used a dark mexican beer at the suggestion of another reviewer and I didn't notice a strange taste. Perfect on a cool snowy night!

Champagne Shrimp and Pasta
I made this for company on Saturday night and it was AWESOME! I made the recipe exactly as is (although I did add just a little bit of cornstarch to help thicken the sauce) and it doesn't need any changes at all. Thank you!
