About this Cook
I started working with food at the age of 15. I grew up with good French Canadian cooking and they are many of my "go to" comfort meals. Unlike most, I love to bake and cook. Lately, baking has taken over. I love to entertain, and having French In Laws helps!
My favorite things to cook
Veal Osso Bucco, Beef Burgandy, Coq au Vin, and my favorite meat loaf with lots of veggies, and of course tortiere.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making preserves in summer to save all those great vegetables and fruits from the garden. There's nothing like a real "fresh peach pie" at Christmas dinner.
My cooking triumphs
Consomme- clear consomme.
My cooking tragedies
Time wise- the croque en bouche I thought would just take a couple hours, took my mom and I most of day for a holiday table centerpiece. We made one with cream puff balls and used cooked sugar for decoration/glue and made another holiday tree with home made truffles- white and dark. Huge endeavor but worth the effort.

Rainbow Citrus Cake
I did not care for this recipe. The cake was very dry, even with the lemon curd. I had some colored candy dragees in pastel shades so the presentation was great! The buttercream was ok. I had to add more milk because it was too tight to spread but that was ok.

Pumpkin Muffins with Streusel Topping
I am a baker and this recipe is fabulous. Just a couple modifications I made and I'm glad- double quantity of raisins and double quantity of the topping. My actual yield was 17 muffins. I used large ice cream scooper to get consistent size for all. They end up looking like jumbo muffins. I got rave reviews from friends who are bakers as well. Thumbs up- this recipe is moving to my "favorites" binder.
