About this Cook
I have been a childcare provider for 5 years, which allows me the time to prepare demanding meals. I like to bake 3-4 times a week to provide snacks for the kids and my family. I'm always willing to try new recipes, but often just "wing-it" in the kitchen and most often the meal gets added to the "to be repeated" file.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking, but also prefer to make meals with beef, chicken, pork or turkey. I am a "carb-freak", so most my meals involve pasta, rice or bread. But I always try to balance meals and add lots of vegetables to keep them healthy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My most traditional meal is my chili recipe. It's a MUST for Halloween night and our annual SuperBowl Party now. Since I'm an American living in Canada, we get two Thanksgiving dinners (yippee!), but otherwise, we stick with the standard holiday meals. We also host exchange students, so I love to learn how they cook in their home countries.
My cooking triumphs
My spaghetti and chili recipes have evolved into two of my most famous meals. I have friends who demand these meals whenever they come for dinner now!

Curried Couscous with Spinach and Chickpeas
Excellent recipe! Based on suggestions and supplies, I left out the tomato and dill and used fresh spinach. Everyone really liked it and I was firmly told to make it again!

Kathy's Delicious Whole Slow Cooker Chicken
This was exactly the type of recipe I was looking for to make a whole chicken in the slow cooker! It was sooooo delicious! My husband couldn't stop praising it and has generously given me permission to make it every week!
