I'm a midwifery student in university, living with my boyfriend downtown Toronto. I'm from a small town and from a family who love to cook. They inspired me!
My favorite things to cook
stir-fry, sausage and pepper pasta sauce (my boyfriend's favourite), salmon, soups.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas dinners where everyone has a role, from chopping the veggies, to carving the bird, to washing the dishes! Listening to my dad recite recipes in the kitchen in french or italian accents (depending on the dish).
My cooking triumphs
Making a pasta sauce that even my boyfriends brother liked (he's very picky). And making chicken fajitas for my parents that I think thoroughly impressed them.
My cooking tragedies
Oh no... Apple pie for this past year's thanksgiving. It was terrible. The crust looked like a botched surgery and had the consistency of cement. I'm a terrible baker!
