About this Cook
I love to cook for family and friends. To me, cooking not only provides the nutrition we need to live, but feeds the soul, shows love and affection, and provides an outlet for creativity.
My favorite things to cook
Most of my favorite things to cook are tried and true family recipes, sometimes jazzed up with my own variations and additions... Beer Beef Stew, Chicken Pot Pie, Mom's Goulash, Mom's Spaghetti and Meatballs, Nanny's Fresh Raspberry Pie.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite cooking tradtions center around Christmas. In my home, it's not Christmas without Homemade Nuts 'n Bolts, Mocha Balls, Ham Pasties, Aunt Mary's Whipped Shortbread and Mabel's Ginger Crinkles. All these recipes, and more, have been passed on with love, from family and friends.
My cooking triumphs
My cooking triumphs have come from varying recipes that I've read and sound interesting... or from trying to re-create a dish I/we have enjoyed in a particular restaurant. Some successes have been my Caribbean Salsa with Grilled Chicken, Calina's Inspired Sausage Hotpot, and Secret Ingredient Chili.
My cooking tragedies
A Chinese style stir-fry where I used purple cabbage... tasted okay but looked disgusting ! A few baking disasters where I have forgotten a key ingredient. And I leave coleslaw making to anyone but me !

Always Juicy Baked Ham
Hi there! I am the self professed foodie who submitted this recipe, and there is an error in the brown sugar amount. It should read 2 TBSP, and not 1/2tsp. Not sure why that happened, but happy people have been enjoying our family favourite ham! Just made it for our Easter dinner, and everyone left the table very content! Thanks for the wonderful reviews!

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips
A family hit, and a WOW dish at parties. No need to vary the recipe... it's fantastic just as is. This recipe is a keeper !

Movie Star Popcorn
I made this last night, while watching the Oscars with my family. DELICIOUS. Worked very well in my electric popper. I used 2 TBSP of sunflower oil instead of the peanut oil, and coarse sea salt. Needed just a pinch more salt once popped but nothing else. It will be our "go to" popcorn recipe from now on.
