A food blogger, recipe writer, baker and lover of all things healthy and fresh. I grow my own vegetables which give us a ton of joy in the summer months!

My favorite things to cook
Anything spicy, breads (especially sourdough), cakes, cookies, muffins, gifts for others.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Autumn: apple pie and crisps; Christmas: chocolate chip cookies, shortbread cookies, filled brioches and Challah bread.
My cooking triumphs
I once made a chocolate souffle that stayed up! My sourdough boules are fantastic and I make a mean tofu-based (!) chocolate chip cookie that rival's mom's!
My cooking tragedies
Making a dark brown bread that used lots of food colouring and turned out green cause I forgot to add the red. My own 20th birthday cake never baked - it turned into a pan of grey sludge that I had to scrape into the sink.
