About this Cook
I cook mainly for myself and for guests; like most people here (I'm sure) I cherish my time in the kitchen and I love to see the empty plates coming back in!
My favorite things to cook
I like to make interesting desserts and hearty meals; my favourites are italian and french cuisine. Also, adding alcohol to baking appeals to me :D
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother's sweet milk rolls...passed on only within the family.
My cooking triumphs
My home-made italian meatballs in sauce are time consuming but lovely, sure to bring in a crowd. I've spent over 10 years perfecting the recipe, and I'm certain to continue tweaking it for all time.
My cooking tragedies
I used a cheap spring form pan that completely ruined a Christmas cake; accidently added double the salt to oatmeal cookies...so sad. Oh and the first time I tried to make pancakes (I was 14) I melted the plastic spatula to the frying pan, obviously ruining the pancakes, spatula and pan. My dad & I had a good laugh though!!

Jedi Mind Trick
I was out of light cream so I mixed heavy cream and skim milk to make up the rest of the drink. That all being said, this drink tasted quite good, a nice change from my usual fare.

Super Spicy Chocolate Milk
While I agree with Tanya's sentiments, I only had heavy cream, no condensed milk...my problem wasn't with the taste (delicious), however; it was the grainy-ness. Even after I strained the drink through a fine strainer, it still had a grainey texture. I think whomever suggested whole spices might be right.

Creamy Dill Dip II
I had never made a dip before, and I was selected to bring one for a potluck...everyone loved the taste, and it is so easy to make, that I make it all the time...no one else mentioned using it for chips, but it's great with salty salsa-type chips (as long as you don't add much milk).
