About this Cook
It's a challenge to find a recipe for dinner that will please both the adults and the kids! It doesn't happen often,,but when it does...woo hoo!
My favorite things to cook
When we lived in Connecticut, there were several Mexican restaurants we loved. Here in the Toronto area, we haven't found many authentic Mexican joints. I've learned to whip up some amazing enchiladas and tacos to tide us over til we find the perfect spot.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My side of the family is french canadian, so when I found some recipes for tourtiere, it was a big hit among my parents.
My cooking triumphs
The chicken cordon bleu II is AMAZING! It was a HUGE hit with my husband, and it's easy with few ingredients. I've tried many recipe websites, and I always come back to The feedback is tried and true, and extremely helpful.
My cooking tragedies
My mother never cooked, so I didn't learn how to until I got married. My poor husband had to endure many frozen burrito dinners until I got the hang of it!

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style
Excellent! I don't bother with the pre-rubbing. I just rub it before I put it in the oven and that seems perfect. Unless your a major salt fan, I would omit it completely as it is very salty even with out it. Makes a moist delicious chicken!

Bacon for the Family or a Crowd
This made less of a mess than I thought it would. I cooked at 400 for 30 minutes, but we like our bacon crisp. I used no foil. I will do this again for sure. Thanks!

These are good but sweet. I add a 1/2 bottle of beer to the blender. It adds some fizz and cuts the sweetness as well. I know it sounds strange but I've gotten nothing but RAVE reviews!!!
