I am a University student, majoring in film studies, minoring in Religion....
I cater (called craft services in the business) on small film sets in Winnipeg. My specialty is 'Sunshine Muffins' which use the entire orange in the recipe; as well as healthy but inexpensive foods because meal budgets aren't that big on small productions.
My favorite things to cook
Anything vegetarian! I like to eat mostly vegetarian meals at home with a few meat dishes a week for my husband. I feel excited to cook veggie foods every evening. Hummus is my favorite.
Economical recipes for a small budget. Root veggies and other cheap foods can make some awesome meals with a little imagination and the right spices....
Hot Dog and Sausage recipes. I have about 100+ different recipes for them that I invented and hope to one day collect them into a recipe book. Who wouldnt want a weiner cookbook?
My favorite family cooking traditions
Breads. And not bread machine types. I knead and bake all my breads by hand.
My cooking triumphs
I love to bake good bread. If I can make a loaf of a different variety each week, I'm happy.
My cooking tragedies
When a recipe I try for the first time has a miscalculation of an ingredient. Sometimes it is not always advisable to follow the recipe to a T or you'll end up with something not wanted. Just recently I used a kid's cookbook to make muffins and they typo-ed the amount of wet to dry ingredients, they came out more like scones.
