Retired engineering secretary and ESL teacher. Two daughters, five grandchildren (1girl 4 boys) ranging from 24 to 16. Cooking is not my favourite occupation.
My favorite things to cook
Ontario-style meatloaf; my-style chili con carne; an adulterated pasta dish of eldest daughter's.
My favorite family cooking traditions
probably that meatloaf
My cooking triumphs
2 pies per year, Thanksgiving pumpkin is much appreciated, and Christmas mince is ok - very ordinary - but liked.
My cooking tragedies
I don't seem to have had any - if something is turning out weird, I fiddle with it till it's edible!
