About this Cook
I am a professional pastry chef at a 4.5 star hotel here in Nova Scotia. I love this site for quick amd easy recipes.
My favorite things to cook
I am a slave to creme brule, but I have a fondness for rustic breads and pastries.
My cooking triumphs
Had dinner with Julia Child at James Beard House, NY.
My cooking tragedies
So many to list...but the important thing is that I learned a lesson from each one. My theory is that a mistake is just a new recipe in the making...and sometimes we need to make mistakes in order to find a better way of making the chemistry happen.

Awesome Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting
The word AWESOME in the title does not do this recipe justice. I needed a recipe recently that included pineapple and thought I would try this. It is a FABULOUS recipe. I will be using it for a wedding cake in two weeks and I know that the quests will be very pleased. Only hint I have for everyone is: when you are baking larger cakes (ie: 14, 18, 20, etc) is to decrease the baking temperature by 25 (to 325) and bake it longer. The recipe multiplies very well! Thanks for sharing this TREMENDOUS recipe!
