I'm probably one of the most unusual kitchen dwellers you'll ever know. By day, I'm working on contaminated sites. When I'm not working, I'm likely cheering on my favourite NHL team, the San Jose Sharks. Somehow in the mix of my bizarre lifestyle, the kitchen is my relaxing place. Cooking and baking have become a hobby for me - more so the last few years. My mom says I didn't get to be great from her. But she doesn't realize she needs to take credit as I started out mainly baking because she always let me help out with making holiday treats and assisted me with school bake sales. It all starts somewhere.

My favorite family cooking traditions
I help my dad cook the turkey when I am home for Christmas, I usually bake a dessert for holiday meals or s starter dish. My butternut squash soup with Fontina cheese Fontina has been my biggest hit!
My cooking triumphs
Everything I make I consider a triumph, especially if the first time turns out spectacular. Nothing can be a total failure, it's all a learning curve
My cooking tragedies
That one time I made chocolate chip cookies with too much salt... didn't think accidentally adding more would be an issue...bleh.
