I am a happy wife and mom of three young children. I love Toronto, great shopping, great restaurants, that is, when the husband and I actually get a chance to go out and eat! I am a stay-at-home mom which gives me the luxury of being able to cook great meals for my family every day. Love the cottage in the summer and family time!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook italian food, something about the flavours of tomatoes and cheeses and basil just makes my mouth water.I also like to bake and think I'm pretty good at it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My husband is Italian, it's a little hard to follow in his mom's footsteps but I try my best. My family are real meat and potato fans, I like to try and vary the dishes as much as possible.
My cooking triumphs
hmmmm. I made some awesome stuffed artichokes in the tradition of my husband's italian grandmother. Think that they rivalled the finest. I feel like anytime my husband or kids lick their plate clean, that's a triumph!
My cooking tragedies
Had a few along the way. Always learn from them, though. Roasts have always been a bit tricky for me, but with a little tweaking and lots of advice (especially from this website) I've gotten, dare I say it, pretty good!
