I'm a semi-retired fun loving Pastor. I love to try new recipes, especially baking. Then I have to share what I make - -thank God for Sunday mornings!
My favorite things to cook
I like making comfort foods in winter and light refreshing meals in summer. Baking is ALL year.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am happiest when the family is together, usually for Thanksgiving. We can all travel in Oct. We usually have turkey and all the favourites around the table. Easter is lamb time and we grill up a butterflied leg of lamb on the BBQ. with fresh spring veg.
My cooking triumphs
I guess still seeing my Canadian Military Clam Chowder recipe on this website is heart warming.
I have been attempting puff pastry, genoise, and other french pastry. My bucket-list contains a trip to an International French Pastry school.
My cooking tragedies
Pie pastry. I'm too heavy handed - I keep telling myself "It's not play-dough" I'm getting better with practice
