About this Cook
French Canadian upbring, living in Quebec. Used to cook for my husband and my 4 children, but now I cook for a smaller crowd. Inspired by my travels and my friends from different ethnic backgrounds, I love cooking different foods, especially Indian, Middle Eastern and Asian (especially Chinese)...
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking Indian food. I also like using a slow cooker. I make a mean lamb and root vegetable stew that I will soon share.
My favorite family cooking traditions
French Canadian roots, love root vegetables and vegetables grown in my own garden.
My cooking triumphs
Cooking varied and healthy meals for my family of 6 until the children grew up. It was a challenge and a triumph since I still cook some of my favorites...
My cooking tragedies
I've actually melted a beautiful dutch oven by forgetting it on the stove. :-(

Slow Cooker Cider Pork Roast
This roast was very good. I added a couple of potatoes and a can of chick peas so I didn't have to make anything else. Only disappointment: You don't taste the apple or the apple cider at all. My family liked it a lot, but if you're looking for an apple flavour, it's not there.

Tantalizingly Tangy Meatloaf
I couldn't find pineapple preserves so I used apricot preserves and it was delicious. The meat was very moist and the sauce added great flavor. Very easy and quick to make.

Asian Glazed Chicken Thighs
This is an excellent recipe. You'll make it over and over, so you'll use up that chili-garlic sauce and sesame oil even if you don't use them for anything else. I didn't even use as much honey as the recipe calls for (4 scant tablespoons) because I used very good orange blossom honey and it was delicious. Rice and a salad of cole slaw (or julienned veges) with an Asian dressing complete the meal. I use an Asian Sesame Dressing.
