About this Cook
I'm a pastor from a small town in Ontario near Toronto. Right now, it's just my husband and I, but we're hoping to add to that soon! I love to cook, love to try new things, and something has to be really good for me to make it twice.
My favorite things to cook
I love ethnic foods, especially Mexican, Indian, and Thai. I also like to bake, both desserts and breads. I like to make things from scratch.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom is a great cook. One of the most lasting traditions in my family is getting together at Christmastime to bake cookies and other treats.

Quick and Easy Carrot and Chickpea Salad
This was pretty good. Made it ahead, then paired it at dinner with cold leftover rice for a quick meal. Four-year-old devoured it, two- and one-year-olds thought it was okay.

Polenta Fries
Made this with store-bought polenta and oven baked them like I would regular french fries. It was really good, though more chewy than crispy. A bit too chewy for my two-and-a-half year old, but my four-year old loved them. Couldn't give them to the baby as a finger food like I had been hoping. I'd make it again only if I had some store-bought polenta kicking around, which I don't usually. I don't think I'd make homemade for this, but then that might make it better!

Potato Leek Soup III
Very, very good. Used much less butter (maybe 1.5 T), and used flour instead of cornstarch (just because I don't have any at the moment). Stirred it into the leeks before adding the broth. Used milk, but less. So delicious and creamy, even without being pureed. Will make again soon!
