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.
