So for all of you out there that are not sure what a foodie is - according to Wikipedia (and to me the most accurate definition I have found) this is what a foodie is: " foodies are amateurs who simply love food for consumption, study, preparation, and news" Yes i am a foodie.… MORE

About Me
I am originally from the Niagara region and have lived in Whitby for over 10 years now. My better half and i enjoy fine dining and playing cards with our friends. My mother was a cook for over 35 years and I am lucky to inherit the trait of being a pretty good cook :) I can take various ingredients on hand and whip up a dish to please all my friends. I don't bake much because if you bake you will eat it and thus create a large butt :) so for now i stick mainly with entrees. All recipes is a great site to view other like minded people and try new and creative recips.
My favorite things to cook
I recently had to do major dietary changes due to digestive issues so no more gluten,dairy,eggs or red meat. I eat chicken,veggies and lts of veggies. Try to incorporate Quinoa in a lot of recipes for extra protein. I still cook all of my hubbies favorite dishes but just can' t taste test them.
My cooking triumphs
Osso Bucco - my hubby loves this dish and it is so incredibly easy to make. Greek/Italian marinated chicken, incredibly juicy chicken breast that take 10 minutes to prepare.
My cooking tragedies
I attempted to make perogies when i was 12 years old - have never made them after that - long process and very fattening. If I crave them I will purchase premade from a local Polish store.
