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.
Us foodies rarely frequent fast food chain restaurants because very rarely,if ever, do they actually produce the quality of food that we as foodies have come acustom to and truly appreciate.

Our enjoyment not only comes from the consumption of our creations but also from the preparation and love that we into our culinary creations (rather than frying a patty on a burner and placing it under a heat lamp for 1 of over 100 million can enjoy :P).

I love preparing a dish, using a recipe and making it my own with different spices and hearing my greatful husband and friends say "omg this is amazing".

So here is to us foodies - raise your bottle of your best aged balsamic vinegar -Bon Appetit

Amen. I guess I am a foodie too and proud of it.

I profess I am a food too! I am dangerous when I go out to eat, b/c I want to find something that I cannot make at home, order it, and try to find a similar and makeable recipe to have it at home. So far I am batting 3 for 5. Still haven't figured out how to make lamb sosaties with sugarcane or spinach paneer! Glad that they are other professed and honest foodies in the world! Here-here!

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.
