Hi! I'm recently married. I grew up in British Columbia, and now live in California with my husband.
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE baking deserts...i have a major sweet tooth and anything with chocolate is great! I also have been trying a lot of new recipes, mainly flavourful stir-frys and other asian/indian flavours as well as my favourite..Italian...anything pasta is great for me :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year at Christmas we go crazy with the baking and make all our faourites treats to eat all season long...its great!
My cooking triumphs
Trying new things, and having them work out. I love it when others enjoy my food...I am especially happy when my husband totally likes something and can't get enough! He once requested cajun tasting chicken, so i looked up the spices invovled, mixed them together and he LOVED it, now whenever we grill chicken he requests the cajun spices!
My cooking tragedies
I've had lots....but the biggest one is when i made these double chocolate cookies and put 1/2 Cup of salt in.(Dont ask why) They were TERRIBLE. very hard. very dry. VERY salty, and burnt.
