About this Cook
I'm a busy working mom with a young son and a wonderful husband (that also likes to cook). I love surfing for new recipes and love reading dish reviews.
My favorite things to cook
chicken piccata; chicken parmesan; BBQ marinated lamb; chicken stew with white beans; oatmeal chocolate chip cookies; apple coffee cake; biscotti; granola; Portuguese seafood stew.
My favorite family cooking traditions
roasting pumpkin seeds after carving Halloween pumpkins; making homemade pizza and watching a family movie; making cookies with my son.
My cooking triumphs
Winning a challenge posed by a (then) boyfriend where we both made the same dish (a seafood stew) and had a neighbour take a 'blind' taste test of each dish and declare which one was better. The triumph was that it was before I started to learn how to cook! Lesson? Never underestimate simple flavours and good ingredients (nor the ulterior motives of soon-to-be ex boyfriends : )
My cooking tragedies
All things with yeast - I am yeast challenged.

Banana Pancakes I
Really great. Made as written. Used thawed frozen over-ripe bananas which made incorporation into the other ingredients really easy. Next time, I'll replace the oil with apple sauce as I think that would work just fine.

Authentic Chinese Steamed Fish
We've never had rockfish before and I'm not sure I'll have it again. The smell of the fish is intense and leaves quite a linger in the house. The recipe or treatment of the rockfish was quite good (no changes) but I'll use this with another less intense smelling fish like tilapia or red snapper.

Eggnog from Scratch
This was fantastic eggnog. As a safety precaution, we tempered the eggs by first heating 1/2 of the milk and slowly pouring it into the egg and sugar mixture while whisking the eggs constantly. Then proceed with the cold ingredients (and vanilla). This will raise the temperature of the eggs so it is safe for children and pregnant women to drink. That being said, I also left out the rum and served it on the side : ). This received rave reviews from all! Thanks for sharing!
