I'm a student - again! It's never too late to finally get a real career...well, almost never too late. I have raised 3 kids on my own and despite the fact that none are doctors I think I did a pretty good darn job of it! haha Oh yes, my daughter gave me a beautiful grandson that I am absolutely in love with.
UPDATE: I finished school and am now a Dental Hygienist! whew!
My favorite things to cook
I love experimenting with new recipes - especially with more ethnic cuisines. There are so many wonderful tastes and with the wide varieties of cultures in most of Canada now, we have available to us all kinds of weird-looking things to buy in our grocery stores.
My favorite family cooking traditions
For Thanksgiving and Christmas everyone in my family is responsible for bringing a different dish. Kinda like a pot-luck. It makes it so much easier for the host-house (my mother's), she'll do the meats (turkey, ham) and we all bring the other stuff like potatoes and vegetables.
My cooking triumphs
Nothing really stands out as being absolutely incredible as being a triumph but I can't recall any real disasters either, so I guess it breaks even. Oh wait, I guess a highlight was my daughter's baby shower - I made all kinds of finger-foods and appetizer-type things that seemed to be a pretty big hit. It was a lot of work but something different besides the usual potato salad - not that there's anything wrong with potato salad, of course!
