About this Cook
I'm 35 years old, living in Beautiful British Columbia with my husband of 8 years and our adorable, but crazy, 5 year old son.
My favorite things to cook
My husband is a musician, so I tend to do a lot of cooking for large groups. They prefer pasta, spanish/mediterranean, mexican and just about anything else I will cook! The husband's band is a mix of Flamenco, Salsa & Rumba so anything goes for the group!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Mother & Grandmother were both it's not so far off for me to be very involved in the kitchen1
My cooking triumphs
Most of my new favorites come from All Recipies - anything to do with Beef Tenderloin will be high on my list! My best dish is one that I created when I was 17 - Peanut Butter Cheesecake! I have not posted it on All Recipies yet!
My cooking tragedies
When I was 11, I was helping my Grandma bake cookies and used 1/3 cup salt instead of 1/3 tsp.! My brothers have never let me forget it!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie
I'm making these for the 2nd time this week alone! My husband LOVES them! They came out of the oven looking like "The Thing" (cracked)and everyone got a good laugh over it ~ we wern't sure, because of the look, how they would taste but we were very happy with it! This is a keeper cookie recipe! Thanks for sharing!

Blue Cheese Crusted Filet Mignon with Port Wine Sauce
Fantastic!!!! I will use this recipe again & again! It was so easy to prepare! The only thing I did differently was I strained the port sauce and added a little cornstarch to make it thicker. This does not need to be done I just like it that way! My husband does not like blue cheese and even he had seconds (I also caught him in the kitchen at 2 in the morning reheating leftovers!):) Try this recipe ~ you will not be dissapointed!
