I am a happy, fit, volunteer extraordinaire who is adjusting to life in a small town after living most of my life in Toronto. I am engaged to be married to the best guy in the whole world, and he loves to eat anything that I cook/bake with relish! I have loved being in the kitchen since I was a little girl and it is my favourite room in the house... I have two cats who love to sit and watch me while I cook; they are the best supervisors in the world, much nicer that Gordon Ramsay on Hell's Kitchen!
My favorite things to cook
Bake anything especially cakes and pies. I love cooking in the Asiatic, Indian, Caribbean and Italian style.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Queen Elizabeth Cake, Gumdrop Cake, Pumpkin Cake with Coconut/Buttercream icing, Salmon patties, and Roastbeef studded with garlic cloves to name but a few! I have had Queen Elizabeth Cake for my birthday since forever!
My cooking triumphs
Pumpkin Cake with Coconut/Buttercream Icing, Shanghai noodles, Hungarian Goulasch, Spaghetti sauce that the men in my friend's firehall just love, Shrimp in Cream/Dijon sauce; the list could go on.
My cooking tragedies
Angel food cake that exploded in my oven, Blueberry pie that had pastry that was too short and it crumbled when I served it, spaghetti sauce that burned!
