About this Cook
I’m 21, 22 in January, my spelling and grammar are horrible so for this profile I’m doing spell-check first in Word, however comments on recopies wont likely get that treatment, and for that I’m sorry. I am unemployable and very recently had to leave school (or fail out at a larger cost) due to a disease I have called Endometriosis. I am in constant pain, and often crippling. I also have other health issues that are related to Endo. With All the pain, means the use of allot of pain killers that cloud my thinking and my ability to over all function properly. So now I am back living with my boyfriend in Guelph, who is amazing to me. On December 3rd I’m having yet another surgery to try to help with my pain or see if there is anything that can be done about it. Until then I have to be a recluse since if I get sick before surgery I will have to wait until there is another opening (march likely at earliest) and the sooner I have surgery, the sooner I can recover and hopefully be able to wo
My favorite things to cook
I do not cook much, I simply bake... sometimes. My boyfriend is a good cook and much of what I do cook I learned from watching him cook all this time for us. i bake cakes and cookies and biscuits, corn bread also. I can make some other foods that are actually cooking however I love my boyfriend but the reason it somewhere on my profile says I’m interested in kid friendly meals is, because he is a fussy eater haha. I can make a kick quiche, chilli (vegetarian, only learned while I was off meat for a few months because of health reasons, then they realized I was replacing meat with soy and that even worse for me) and a few other things but they are items he says he hates and until recently has stated he won’t try them even if I make them.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My background is English, Irish, Scottish, Belgian and Polynesian, and of course Canadian. I was born in Canada as were my parents. My dad has no cooking knowledge and since my mom has many dietary restrictions there is very few things that she cooked that I enjoyed (at age 11 or 12) me my mom and dad all started fending for ourselves food wise. Though, if I ask her I could be told how to cook both bear and deer and have both turn out very yummy. Most all things that are from my past family are things like rice pudding, scones and such that all come from my mother’s mother. There was a great wealth of cooking knowledge with my great grandmother (dads grandma) however the wealth seems to have recently died with her since she never wrote down recopies and could still recall and make everything until her 94th birthday (it was only the last month of her life she went downhill and she did so very fast)
My cooking triumphs
i'll get back to this, after i have some :S
My cooking tragedies
