About this Cook
I'm a 34 year old stay at home mom (boy 9, girl 5),Early childhood Educator and Heritage Language Preschool Teacher. I cook everyday, every meal and I'm a firm believer in making food from scratch.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, I like to cook too, I'm not a picky girl, I love almost everything!My favourite food is Portuguese food as it is the food I grew up with.Food is very important in my culture. My mom is an amazing cook and taught me to cook by taste, feel, smell, etc. If I had my choice, I'd have a healthy homemade meal over gourmet anyday, I'll pass on the bland stuff, it's got to have flavour for me. I don't feel comfortable feeding my family processed foods. I appreciate and love heritage recipes passed down through generations.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking together for the holidays, baking with my mom, happy times.
My cooking triumphs
Several Thanksgivings, signature deserts, and of course, when my children like what I make and eat it :)!
My cooking tragedies
No major tragedies yet, touch wood! :)

Roasted Lemon Herb Chicken
Typically, I don't roast chicken this way and wanted to try something different. I found the taste to be fine, but bland, and I really didn't like all the lemon when I tried to make gravy with the drippings. It would probably be a great marinade for grilling. My family liked it, especially the kids.

Fabulous Homemade Bread For the Food Processor
Made the dough in the bread machine, and baked it in the oven, at least three times this week. It's excellent, thank you for sharing :)
