For me food has always been a source of difficulty rather than enjoyment.  As a young child I suffered from asthma and an upset stomach after many meals that did not make me feel strong. Unlike many other kids who found themselves eating as much as they wanted and having no consequences from… MORE

Eating the right type of foods has always been a problem for me.  While growing up at home I was  raised on meat and potatoes with gravy and all the rest of the foods that did not satisfy me in the least.  I would pick at my meat serving and end up giving it to our pet or leaving it on the… MORE

About Me
I am a single male who enjoys cooking main dishes and baking pies,cakes and cookies for myself and others. I have short order cook training that I took in College and some practical experience at home and restaurants. I have a cat named Christopher who lives with me in my trailer in Slocan,B.C.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are Macaroni and cheese, Pumpkin Pie, Lemon Meringue Pie, Spaghetti with tomato sauce, cheese omelet, and carrot cake
My favorite family cooking traditions
In my family we cooked mainly english meals which I did enjoy while growing up at home. We always had roast beef and potatoes on Sunday and Fish and Chips during the week. We always had eggs and bacon on Saturday morning and Pancakes on Sunday morning.
My cooking triumphs
I have made several pies consisting of pumpkin, lemon meringue and bacon quiches that have always turned out fantastic for me and I get good reviews
My cooking tragedies
My one pie that I made in Highchool did not make it home instead it ended up on our driveway when I dropped it accidentally while getting out of my friends car which I really felt bad about since I could not eat it.
