About this Cook
Every morning my granddaughter calls and says, "Good morning Nana. Whatcha doing? Are you baking Nana?" Hence my name, Baking Nana. I love to bake bread and never get tired of it. Yeast is additive!

My favorite things to cook
I go through phases, Asian for a while then Italian then on to something else. I love experimenting with new flavors and different spices. Some times my husband will ask if we will ever have "ordinary" food again. Once in a while I have to toss him a burger just to keep quite! Actually, he is a good sport and my favorite taste tester.
My favorite family cooking traditions
In our family if it is your birthday you get to choose the menu. We have had some really interesting meals. In March we have 5 birthdays so we do one big party - what a crazy menu that is! Christmas dinner is very traditional. Sausage rolls, Prime Rib, Yorkshire Pudding, gravy, Green beans with bacon, Mashed Potatoes (the really fattening kind) and trifle for dessert. If I were to dare to omit any of those items I would be lynched.
My cooking triumphs
Mastering really great bread is probably my biggest triumph. I am always so pleased when I create a perfect Asian dish.
My cooking tragedies
There have been a few but none so horrible that I can't laugh about them now.

Frozen Seasoning Pods
What a great idea! I have done this with garlic paste but never thought about other veggies. I made mine without the tomato so I could still use it in dishes that my tomato sensitive friend could eat. Thanks, I can't wait to use these in soups, stocks, rice. Oh Boy!

Poutine Style Scalloped Potatoes
This is really rich and more like 8 servings at least. I didn't have the seasoning called for so I used a Seasoned Pepper Blend. Allow more like 60 minutes baking time even with very thinly sliced potatoes. Thanks for a new take on scalloped potatoes.

Aunt Barb's Spaghetti Pie
For me, another shape of pasta would work better than spaghetti. I had to use fettuccine as it turned out I was out of spaghetti noodles. Stirring the sour cream into the pasta seemed to work better than layering. One jar of sauce wasn't enough - this really needs two jars or cut the pasta & sour cream in half. With a few minor changes this makes a hearty family style meal.
