About this Cook
I love to cook and try to focus on a healhy lifestyle. My favorite meathod of cooking is to look at the pictures in cookbooks and then try to make the food as tasty as it looks. I very seldom follow ny recipes or use measurements, but it always turns out super tasty. By joining this website, I hope to start writing down my creations so I can share them with others.
My favorite things to cook
My family has a history of diabetes, so I try to focus on healthy eating habits. But I love food, so it has to be tasty and full of flavor!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother is Menonite, so meat and potatoes were always a staple on the dinner table, but I have a few favotite dishes that came from grandma.
My cooking triumphs
I think my favorite dish that I have ever made was a lamb shoulder roast with a herb rub, and topped with a wine and cream sauce. It was my first time cooking lamb and it turned out finominal, served with homeade greek salad, roasted potatoes, rice pilaf, and pita with homeade hummous...yummmm
My cooking tragedies
I seem to always turn out a great meal, but can never remeber exactly how much of which ingredients I have used, when I write down the recipe and try to follow it it usually flubs. I try to use colour, texture and my knowledge of flavors in a dish to make it just right, and my recipes are never exactly the same the second time.

Playgroup Granola Bars
This is a great base for granola bars. I added stone milled flour instead of white and reduced it to 2/3 cup, cut the sugar to 1/2 cup, added 1/3 cup each flax seeds, sesame seeds, and sunflower seeds, and 1/2 cup chocolate chips. Any dried fruit is also a great addition. We pack them on hiking trips, they are very filling and keep you full. They also freeze well, but they seem to dissapear right from the freezer!
