About this Cook
the house i live in is 150 years old. I have a 2 year old son and a hot husband.
My favorite things to cook
I've been baking since I was 9 and love to whip up treats (sometimes more healthy than others).
My favorite family cooking traditions
my maternal side of the family is mennonite and paternal side is irish. some of my tastes definately originate from this like my love of good borcht and scotch broth. mmm
My cooking triumphs
i can modify a baking recipe a whole lot and it just works out fine.
My cooking tragedies
i'm really more likely to want to go out for a good maritime family restaurant roast beef dinner than to try and cook a big dinner for my family. luckily my husband likes to cook suppper. the tragedy is i need to work on my cooking.

Rhubarb Muffins
What a great surprise! The batter seemed really dry and hard to mix together, however as soon as I added my frozen rhubarb it seemed to gel together. I skipped the topping part of the recipe and only used sunflower oil, no melted butter. I couldn't believe in when these muffins came out light fluffy and beautiful from my oven. One of my best Sunday brunches yet with these and wild boar sausages from the local farmer's market. I encourage anyone to try this easy & delicious recipe!

Nora's Special Chocolate Chip Muffins
I made this recipe on a Sunday morning for a treat. I didn't read the reveiws until they were in the oven. The batter seemed a little thick but in the end they were moist on the inside and crunchy on the outside. What a nice and simple treat. I used regular chocolate chips instead of mini which was fine. Muffins can sometimes be too moist and gooey that's why i really loved the texture. no modifications neccessary for me and I'm sure I'll try them again. To all the reviews muffins are definately a fickle baking choice and you should always make whatever modifications feel right at the time.
