About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, especially at Christmas time! My favorites are gingerbread men and brownies. I love finding new ideas for preparing meat and fish on allrecipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Everyone in our family cooks. My mom is a recipe collector, and follows recipes to the "T". My dad loves to use 5 or 6 recipes and create his own version. My husband gets in the kitchen and who knows if supper will be a really odd mix, or an amazingly well put together meal. Me, I fall in the middle of it all!
My cooking triumphs
I once made a black forest cake from scratch; it took a lot of work but was worth it. My homemade biscotti and molasses crinkles are family favorites.
My cooking tragedies
I added WAY too much apple cider vinegar to my squash soup - a soup that already tasted great before I messed around with it. It took my Dad and I a whole day to fix it with a lot of spices and a whole bunch of whole milk.

Movie Star Popcorn
This is one of the first things I learned how to make on my own and I've got the scar between my forehead from a freshly popped kernel to prove it! A couple of notes: Don't lift the lid until your popcorn is mostly popped - if you let out the steam it doesn't pop as well. As well, my husband and daughter love flavored popcorn. I found it best to add flavorings after the popcorn has been lightly coated with butter. We've tried microwave, air popped and stovetop popcorn with and without butter, and this seems to be the best method.

Butternut Squash Soup
I took a large butternut squash, quartered it, and put it in the oven with a few potatoes and a few large carrots(washed but not peeled).I sprinkled on some olive oil, added about 1-2 tsp kosher salt and 4-5 whole cloves of garlic. Then I stuck it in the oven at 350 until the veggies were soft. After the veggies were cool enough to touch I peeled them and added any juices at the bottom of the casserole to a large pot along with the veggies. Then I added the broth, and other ingredients in the original recipe. I also added the slightest amount of clove to add a bit of kick.

Pumpkin Maple Pie Supreme
While the pie was good, it takes a lot of maple syrup with little difference added to the flavour. For the extra money for just a touch more flavour, I'd rather just stick to an original.
