About this Cook
I really enjoy surrounding myself with kitchen robots :) I bought my mother a new Cuisinart Blender just so I could take posession of her old one. I love nothing more than having a whole day to plan and execute a fantastic meal for my extended family, and for some reason they never fail to miss one of those occasions!
My favorite things to cook
Anything that stretches my limits. I find being in the Kitchen very zen, so having a whole afternoon in there creating is a fantasy. That being said, I love the easiness of muffins, the heartiness of casseroles, and the comfort of a fresh loaf of bread.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I adore several of the recipes that have been passed down in my family, but my favourite is for Great-Gramma's Lemon Curd. Christmas just wouldn't be the same without it. Also, I must have the Italian Meat Pie every chance I get :)
My cooking tragedies
I once forgot about the pecans I was toasting in the oven. Let us say that I quite simply lost my head. My husband stills laughs about me running through the house with the flaming baking sheet :) Just don't tell my mother!

Chewy Coconut Cookies
I used half coconut oil for the butter. These were amazing. My four year old his behind the dishwasher to steal them off the plate as I was putting them on.

Russian Black Bread
Delicious! The only thing I will change for next time is to make one loaf instead of two out of this recipe.
