About this Cook
I am a Junior High Teacher in Central Alberta. Cooking for me is a de-stresser, so I get double the benefits from cooking - relaxation and good food!
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are hearty (and easy!) baked and slow cooker meals such as chicken parmigiana, roast beef and roast chicken as well as family traditions such as popovers and honey for breakfast or homemade crepes with homemade warm fruit compote and popcorn made in a big pot on the stove.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family cooking traditions are; -A nice glass of wine while cooking -Popovers with honey on Sunday mornings -Big bowls of fresh, hot popcorn made on the stove
My cooking triumphs
I don't know if I have any specific cooking triumphs. I suppose first learning to cook for a family of five at age ten could be considered a triumph. Every time I try a new dish of my own, or work with a recipe to create something different and unique, and it turns out to taste great is a triumph to me!
My cooking tragedies
Many, many failed attempts at popcorn on the stove, resulting in burned popcorn, and badly stained pans.

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff
Very good, very easy recipe and went very very well with egg noodles. I replaced the cream of chicken soup with cream of mushroom and used chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts. The only thing I would change next time will be to cut back on the cream cheese. We found that, with an entire block of cream cheese, you could distinctly taste cream cheese. While it didn't overwhelm the other flavours, it didn't nicely balance with the chicken and mushroom flavours. Will definitely make again.

Focaccia Bread
Fantastic, easy recipe for focaccia bread! Loved that it only took an hour from start to finish. Only downside is that the loaf only lasted a day!! Based on previous bread making experience and previous comments, I made sure that the water was warm, between 120 - 130 degrees Farenheit, when I added it to dry ingredients. As I was using Fleichmann's Quick Rise Yeast, I did not need to proof the yeast. As well, I omitted the cheese and instead brushed the top of the bread with olive oil and topped with rosemary and sea salt. Got great reviews from my roommates. Will definitely be making again!

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies III
Excellent peanut butter cookie recipe - best I've tried so far. Read previous comments and doubled the cookie recipe, but not the filling. Glad I did, as my boyfriend thought the cookie sandwitches were good, but preferred the cookies, sans filling. As well, only baked the cookies for 8 minutes. this way, they stayed really soft and chewy after they cooled. Ended up using half of the cookie batter and froze the rest. Just finished making cookies from the frozen dough. The dough froze really well and the cookies turned out great. Again, made half into sandwitches and the other half as 'regular' cookies, as we prefer the 'regular' cookies oven warm, but the cookie sandwitches are much better cold. This will become my standard peanut butter cookie recipe.
