I'm 29 and living in BC with my boyfriend of 10 years, Colin, and our 2 cats, Dexter and Rogue. I love living in BC and though I miss my family, I do NOT miss the Saskatchewan weather!
My favorite things to cook
I love baking, specifically. I'm toying with the idea of taking some basic baking courses as well as some cake decorating courses and opening up my own cake decorating shop. As far as standard cooking goes, though, I love cooking pasta dishes. The simple, classic Italian kind, with olive oil and fresh herbs. Simple and oh-so delicious!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother's perogies! I have fond memories of my mom, my aunt and I cooking perogies all day. Christmas 2009, my mom and I finally got to do it again, just the two of us. It is definitely something I'm going to continue with my own children.
My cooking triumphs
The very first time I successfully cooked a duck on my own! It was my first Thanksgiving (Colin's too) on my own and I wanted to do something different. The duck turned out amazing, and I was so proud of myself!
My cooking tragedies
Ugh ... that would have to be the creamy potato soup I attempted to make in a slow cooker. I was very new to cooking and no one told me that you couldn't bring milk up to a boil slowly. Colin and I have never been so sick! It was awful! I still shudder when I think about it, and that was years ago!
