About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I will cook anything, from homemade thai food, to indian, to homemade pasta to soup, to cheesecake.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I think it would be watching my dad stirring a big pot of homemade spaghetti sauce, while he tasted it to get the spices just right.
My cooking triumphs to answer this without sounding like a snob. My cooking triumps? Everything I make.
My cooking tragedies
Again, how do I answer this without sounding like a snob. I can honestly say I've never had a cooking tragedy.

Haddock Bubbly Bake
This recipe is excellent! Of course, i didn't follow it exactly (I never do follow recipes to a "t") but it sure was a hit. I baked a mixture of haddock and shrimp with onions, mushrooms and asparagus. The cream of mushroom soup was excellent. I paired it with garlic mashed potatoes and voila! instant comfort food. I am making it again this week, except I will use chicken and shrimp, cream of chicken soup, fresh broccoli and mushrooms. Thanks for the fantastic recipe!

Whole Wheat Pasta
By simply following the recipe, this dough was never going to come together. I had to add water to it before it would stay together enough for me knead it. After that, it was all uphill. It came together very nicely, rolled out beautifully through my pasta maker and was delicious mixed with asparagus, mushrooms and shrimp.

Chocolate Almond Pudding
I had no trouble with this recipe. It thickened to a beautiful consistency and was very yummy. I had it on the table in 10 minutes flat. Next time I will experiment with different flavours: mint, rum, raspberry...
