Still learning after all these years.......
About this Cook
Have recently moved from big city life to a very small community of approx. 500 residents. Now produce my own food from my garden. Love this life.
My favorite things to cook
Anything gourmet. Love Indian cuisine. All challenges to my skills.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have been creating family cooking tradition for my own family as my mother hated cooking and was not good at it. Now my adult kids are really excited about their own cooking and learning processes.
My cooking triumphs
I have had great success with Mexican and Italian meals for guests. Also I make wonderful homemade soups.
My cooking tragedies
First dinner party 25 years ago. Too well planned, too many courses. Left guests alone while I was frantic in the kitchen. Never made that mistake again!!

Honey Dijon Balsamic Vinaigrette
Just made this for our dinner tonight. Really delicious just as it stands....for our flavour preferences though, I added 1/4 tsp of Herb de Provence. If I had anymore of Trader Joes "flower pepper" I would have used that. Also, added a small fresh garlic clove. Processed all in my mini food processor. Love it.

Pork Tenderloin with Creamy Herb Sauce
Really love the concept of this dish. Because I can't help myself.....these are my changes. I added my homemade basil pesto, fresh picked Chantrell mushrooms, red pepper flakes, Spanish sweet paprika, chunks of Provolone cheese and Old Bay Seasoning. Big bold flavour in a creamy sauce. Love it.

Creamy Goat Cheese and Honey
I cut back on the honey because I thought it would be too sweet. Big mistake! I will make these again because they are different and delicious. I will definitely use all the honey as directed.
