About this Cook
I'm living the dream with a houseful of boys and the smartest dog on the planet!I'm mostly a stay-at-home mama, but I also teach self-help classes and occasionally take on an individual client. There's our landscaping business,too...and trail running whenever possible. And I am always growing things out in my garden. I am blessed.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook real food for all my guys: wings, chili, bbq, slow cooker creations, and local Maritime food. Lobster poutine! Donairs! Here's the twist: I have Celiac Disease and a host of other food issues...so I adapt guy food to meet my diet...challenge? YES! Fun? Always! If my guys will eat it, anyone will!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking and eating is a huge part of my family. Picking one tradition is beyond me!
My cooking triumphs
My aged cheddar souffle is one of my show-off recipes. It's adapted from my mom's recipe to be GF and Dairy Free. I've got a few great burgers in my recipe box. Lamb with goat cheese and carmelized onions is my fave, but the boys love the double cheese with bacon, homemade red pepper jelly, deep fried onions with au jus on the side. Kinda my take on the beef dip. My GF peanut butter balls are extremely popular and my GF chocolate chip cookies never last more than 24 hours.
My cooking tragedies
OH MY!! To this day, I can't make biscuits as good as my mama! She's the biscuit queen!I have made some ROCKS...lol...I'll keep on trying.
