About this Cook
Married, mother of one 13 year old son. Thrilled to have just gotten my first KitchenAid Mixer.
My favorite things to cook
I don't really have a favourite. I'll try anything once, and I LOVE it when people eat my food!
My cooking triumphs
Yorkshire pudding, cream puffs, the most amazing ribs EVER, can pretty much make chocolate chip cookies blindfolded.
My cooking tragedies
Imagine - 8 guests for Thanksgiving, big turkey, and an oven that 'died' halfway through cooking the bird. Once mistakenly added salt instead of sugar in a cherry pie. The pie looked amazing as did my guest's faces when they took their first bite.

Ash-e-jow (Iranian/Persian Barley Soup)
I found myself with a bag of barley and nothing to do with it, so went looking for an easy recipe. This soup is fantastic - easy, delicious, healthy and suitable for my vegetarian son (if you sub vegetable broth for the chicken broth). We all loved it and will be serving at a boxing day get together. I halved the recipe, used veggie broth, and used Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. Great recipe! changes other than the broth,

Crispy Vegetable Pakoras
These were amazing. I grated carrots and zucchini, chopped onion, red pepper and parsnip. I mixed it with the flour and water batter and droped by spoonsful into the hot oil. The seasonsings in the recipe were delicious - didn't change anything. Great flavour, easy to make, definitely a keeper! Thanks veggigoddess.

Crispy Barbequed Tofu Slices
My 15 yr old son decided on Tuesday that he wants to be vegetarian. I love a challenge so I started looking for tofu recipes and found this one..and I'm glad I did. I followed all the steps but also pressed the water out for a couple of hours and yes, the whole process (press, freeze, thaw, fry, bake) takes a long time. But I have to say was definitely worth it. Next time, I'll slice thinner and fry a little longer as it could have been crispier for our taste. My son had it with lettuce and tomato on a bun and he really liked it - hubby and I just had it on its own. We'll definitely have this again.
