About this Cook
I remember getting off the plane with my mom to visit my dad in Toronto when I was about six, and shortly thereafter asking him with my french-accent “What kind of cuisine are we having tonight?” The accent may be gone, but my attitude towards food has remained the same. Food has always been a means to bring friends and family together and is often the centre of great conversation. I’m a strong believer in eating foods you like that are rich in flavour and texture. Healthy food doesn’t mean it needs to be boring or bland, it’s about finding that balance!
My favorite things to cook
I think I've mastered the art of cooking pasta on a dinner front. I love baking cakes though (and eating them too!)

Quinoa Chili
This recipe was featured on the food blog Colourful Dish ( and it was really tasty, but I must say that I found it a little bland as is, so I did add some extra seasoning to make it pop just that much more. I also didn't have zucchini so I added bok choy instead. It was a very colourful dinner and all in all it was tasty. With that said, it's very similar to other chilis, and I would've thought that given it's name, the quinoa would've had a more powerful role.
