About this Cook
I'm a southern girl that has moved to Canada. I have only been here about a year and a half. I love it here, but it is hard not having some of the foods I am used to. Also with cooking it is hard to find some of brands of things you like to cook with, but it has been nice exploring new things here.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook new recipes and see how I can make them my own.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to make my mom's Cornbread dressing at the holidays. It reminds me of home.

Mexican Tinga
Thank you thank you for this recipe! I made this for hubby and I for dinner and it was a big hit. The only change I made was I added only 2 chipoltles but other than that followed as directed and it turned out wonderfully. Will be making this again. Can't wait to use it in tacos and enchiladas too. Very yummy :)

Azteca Soup
Really enjoyed this soup! I will be making it again. I don't have corn tortillas at our regular grocery store, so I used tortilla chips and warmed them in the oven. I also added a squeeze of lime right before serving and it was great. Hubby really enjoyed it too. Thanks for the great recipe :)

Loose Meat on a Bun, Restaurant Style
This was a great recipe! I did change it a bit. I don't eat red meat, so I used ground turkey. I used the onions, worcestershire, and seasonings. Just changed the broth to chicken. It was really good :) Will be making it again and used the small white buns with cheese, pickle, and mustard YUM!
