Mother of 7yr old and 21 yr old girls. Recently became a grandmother :) Married and have a small farm of horses and love my pyrenees dogs. I am a stay at home mom, and my oldest and beautiful granddaughter live with me as well.
I love quilting, sewing, crafts, gardening and yard work, riding my horses, fishing, and of course cooking.
My hobby and work-at-home is taking older cabinets/desks/hutches etc and painting or refinishing them and adding antique hardware. It's relaxing and rewarding. I do this together with my oldest daughter and we let our creativity flow.
I am blessed to have such a wonderful family and life. Our home is in an area of 1000 lakes in 100 kms radius. Beautiful British Columbia!
My favorite things to cook
Love Ukranian cooking, baking, and anything crock pot. Comfort food is my love! Enjoy healthy cooking as much as possible, and enjoy make things from scratch. Currently am teaching my girls how to shop and cook thriftly. Loving every minute of it. I enjoy canning home grown vegies, fruit, pickles, and jams
My favorite family cooking traditions
Of course turkey dinner, sunday pot roasts, anything that sends an aroma through our house all day. Love to 'tweak' recipes. My grandmother's recipes are precious to me. My ukranian cooking was taught to me by the best, my ex mother in law. Who doesnt love authentic Ukranian food?
My cooking triumphs
Homemade chicken or turkey pot pie. My family will do anything for it. I think anything my family likes is a triumph. Pot roast with yorkshire puddings, ham and scalloped potatoes, and anything grilled.
My cooking tragedies
Pea soup! Who knew it could turn out that neon green. Tasted like toxic waste too. I was 20 yrs old at the time, and still cant live it down.
