About this Cook
I'm a wanderer and I love having a cozy home to come back too. Creating awesomely good food in my kitchen is a part of how I 'nest' so to speak :) Oh, and I love feeding other people!
My favorite things to cook
Cookies! I also love to make chili, vegetable curry, burritos, soda bread and egg-in-a-holes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Ludefisk and lefsa on Christmas Eve. I am a huge fan of salt cod and potatoes any way ya serve 'em.
My cooking triumphs
I turned a tragedy into a triumph: I made Shepherd's Pie with texturized vegetable protien (TVP) that tasted just plain creepy, but I figured out what I did wrong and the second time I made it it rocked!
My cooking tragedies
I forgot the egg in my banana muffins once and they came out like little banana-flavoured hockey pucks.

Salmon and Potato Pie
This was the first savoury pie I've ever made and I really liked it! I made it with a doubled No Roll Pie Crust from here. I used 5 potatoes instead of six, added two thinly sliced leeks, and a shredded carrot and zuchinni. It seemed to take a while (approx. 2 hrs.) but I'm sure that was because I was making pie crust for the first time and got a little OC when I was picking the bones out of the salmon. I added the milk to the juice from the salmon to get to a cup. I'm sure once I get the hang of making the easy, easy piecrust I can cut the time down. Thank-you Mackenzie for a lovely, comforting recipe!

Oven Pancakes
This was fun to make and really easy. I think a touch of salt added to the batter would be just the thing to bring out all the flavour and make it 5 stars. After blending up the batter and putting it in the pre-heated pan, I blended up some wild blueberries with maple syrup and a bit of sugar, and then warmed that up for a sauce.

Fry Sauce
I did not know that this is something people use as a french fry dipping sauce in Utah! At most restaurants my partner and I went to in Peru this is what was served with anything that was fried. It was always served with french fries and breaded calamari in the coastal restaurants we ate at. It's also really good mixed with a little lime juice.
