About this Cook
I am currently living with my common-law husband. I work full time and commute. I like time savers and quick and easy meals that are tasty and not loaded with fat.
My favorite things to cook
I love my slow cooker. We enjoy chicken, casseroles, fish. Pretty well anything! My boyfriend is Italian so we eat a lot of Italian-Canadian food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom cooked most when I was a child, but now my dad does almost all the cooking. Even at holidays. He and I always exchange ideas and our "creations".
My cooking triumphs
When I made my first lasagna and homemade spaghetti sauce and my boyfriend told me it was just like his mom's. He is Italian and she was a fantastic cook.
My cooking tragedies
Nothing too tragic...yet!

Oven-Roasted Asparagus
Made this recipe as written and it was delicious!! I mixed the olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper and garlic in a small bowl. Drizzled that over the asparagus, and tossed them all together on a foil lined baking sheet. Then sprinkled with the parmesan cheese. This is how I will make my asparagus from now on!!

Baby Back Ribs
These ribs were great. I used the dry rub suggested by Cathy M and let that sit on the ribs over night. I mixed a sweet BBQ sauce with a smokey one and added 1/2 a cup of pineapple jam. I stirred this together with a small squirt of sriracha sauce and basted the ribs in this before wrapping in foil and baking for 2.5 hrs at 300. Unwrapped, turned the oven way down and added more sauce. They were sticky/spicy/sweet and falling apart they were so tender. I do not have a BBQ...didnt need one! Will use this method over and over again. NEVER BOIL RIBS!!! You boil all the flavor out!!

Crab Rangoon III
These are great, we make them all the time. I use onion & chive cream cheese and we serve them with sweet Thai chili sauce. The spicy sweet combo with the crab and cheese combo is amazing!!!
