About this Cook
I was born and raised by parents immigrated from Italy to Canada. So of course my mother taught me alot, not ALL, as I then worked for over 20 years in the Food & Beverage Industry, where i learned alot about basic cooking and basic. My first interest in cooking: Homec Grade 8
My favorite things to cook
Wish I had more time, but I like making everything, from homemade sauces and salsa, with all the tomatoes I grow. I also grow herbs to use in my cooking. I like to make bread, lasagna, ravioli, anything Italian. I also love to bake.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Italian all the way, my husband is french though, so I have also learned a few traditions of his, like tortiere.
My cooking triumphs
Tried a recipe for Ciabatta bread, didnt think I could make it, also foccacia bread, would also have loved to cook for alot of people at one time, but never have. I do make ALOT of pies when apples are season, tortieres at christmas, which freeze well.
My cooking tragedies
I once accidently use baking soda in my stew, thinking it was salt. I tried to rinse off the meat and veggies and make a new gravy but it didnt work, it tasted awful, in the garbage.

Pad Thai
It really needs some color, so I added thinly sliced red pepper, also omitted the butter & used sesame oil. I used brown sugar instead of white sugar & lime instead of lemon. This recipe is pretty basic, but that's good, just add what you like.

Stuffed Sole
This was great! But I made one addition, I added a bit of softened cream cheese to the shrimp. Some leaked into the sauce, but that was good, as it made the sauce creamier. I wasn't sure how to cook sole before, but I think I'll be sticking to this recipe now.

Salmon Cakes II
delicious! I didnt have the cheese, so I left it out. I did add some finely diced red pepper. It was really moist. I will definitely make again, and next time I will add the cheese.
