About this Cook
I am currently a professional chef, with a little over 20 years in the kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
Anything new! I always enjoy trying new recipes. I am an avid Tex-Mex cook, but also enjoy French and Italian recipes. Baking bread is great therapy!
My cooking tragedies
Carrot cake. I don't know why, but for some reason the baking Gods frown on any attempt I make at carrot cake!

Hearty Hamburger Soup
I really did enjoy this soup. I did add cabbage and a potato. I will skip the tomatoes next time, though, in favor of some tomato juice. The changes were based solely because I wanted them (I had cabbage and potatoes on hand), not because this recipe needed any help. It was a nice thick and hearty soup.

Diane's Colcannon
i first used this recipe a few years ago for our neighbourhood St. Patrick's Day Feast. It is now a tradition on the Sunday Before, and it grows each year. The only addition I have ever made is the addition of seasoning to all layers. I salt the water the potatoes boil in, add a little Celtic Grey Salt and ground mixed peppercorns to the Cabbage and Onions as they brown. I use the seasoning bacon that you can sometimes find in the mega mart, it's ends and pieces, but works great. I usually double this recipe, but this year will have to triple it. This also works great with Fried Chicken, Roast Turkey and Pork Roast. The only year I didn't make this was the year I had the Irish Stew.

Ginger Lemonade
I add more ginger than the recipe called for, and serve it mixed half and half with unsweetened tea
