About this Cook
Born in 1971, I'm a husband, and father who does most of the cooking in the house; good thing I enjoy it.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are the traditional family dishes that are part of my french canadian heritage. Tourtiere, Meatball Ragout, and Pouding Chomeur are the key dishes I strive to keep as part of my repertoire. Perogies though not traditional french canadian fare, are another family favorite I like to cook.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Well... see above. Ragout au Boulettes (Meatballs in Gravy - though a special gravy), Tourtiere (Meat Pie), and Pouding Chomeur (a form of bread pudding).
My cooking triumphs
Recently made a chili that was absolutely to die for. I used pork cottage roll instead of ground beef, and used quite a lot of vegetables. It was unique and super delicious.
My cooking tragedies
Recently made a chili that was absolutely to die for. Sound familiar? Yeah, though I consider that chili a cooking triumph, the pork cottage roll was cooked in the slow cooker with a special originally concocted gravy of it's own a few days before making the chili. I have no idea what ingredients I used to cook the pork cottage roll, and consequently have no ability to truly duplicate the chili. That's the tragic part of it.

Irish Cream Sugar Cookies
As others have mentioned, the flavor of the original recipe is rather on the light side. For a richer Irish Cream Flavor, double the Irish Cream to One (1) full cup, and also increase the whole egg plus one egg yolk to two full eggs. I found no need to mix the egg yolk into the batter prior to adding the whole egg; just add the whole eggs all at once. With this new formulation, the batter, immediately after mixing, is soft enough to be scooped into a piping bag and piped onto the cookie sheets. Done so, baked for the recommended time, makes excellent cookies with no need to refrigerate for hours and roll out the dough.

Chewiest Brownies
This recipe is excellenty chewy and fudgy. It has a tendency to be more fudgy and soft than desired in the middle of the pan, but it doesn't detract from the delicious taste. On a recent experimentation, I scooped the brownie batter into greased mini-muffin tins, and I ended up with awesome chewy "two-bite brownies".
