I love fresh produce from Michigan. Cooking anything and everything. I also love the ultimate challenge of not letting any food in my fridge go to waste!
My favorite things to cook
Roast chicken dinners. Muffins. Fish. Bread. Granola. Soups. Squash anything.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sweets made by my mother. I am starting my own new traditions that include a bi-weekly chicken roast dinner with my husband. Bones are made into my mother's chicken soup recipe. I save any old bread ends in the freezer and turn them into a delicious stuffing. My secret ingredient to my chicken is Summer Savory - only available in my home province of Nova Scotia.
My cooking triumphs
I made my first apple pie this year. It was a beautiful masterpiece.
My cooking tragedies
French bread. It was so terrible that the birds wouldn't even eat it!
