About this Cook
I don't eat red meat and eat a lower Saturated fat diet (Trans free if at all possible). I began this diet to help control my Multiple Sclerosis mid to late 2008.
My favorite things to cook
Currently, fish, as I'm just discovering the wonderful world of fish (I'm allergic to shellfish, but fresh water, catfish, good to go!). I also love to bake, and it's fun to modify recipes to see what works and how low in the 'bad fats' a recipe can be and still 'work'!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My cooking triumphs
My first apple pie, and crust from scratch. The crust was a nightmare to work (I never imagined it would be so difficult!) but it turned out fantastic!
My cooking tragedies
A poor University student cooking up some Uncle Ben's white rice and placing dulce on it, as it's all we had in the apartment. What were we thinking?? It was awful, but we laughed so hard we cried and still ate it!

Cinnamon Scented Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
The concept of this recipe is great, and reading over the spices I thought too that they'd taste wonderful with the sweet potato. Like Thanksgiving and pumpkin pie. The first couple bites were yummy, but beyond that, there was some nagging taste that was off putting for me. I have tried a similar recipe which included onion, and I found that helped to balance the flavours, so perhaps a sweet onion here would as well. We did skip the brown sugar, and didn't stuff the potato skins, simply mashed and served.

Blood Orange Chicken
Husband made a half batch of this recipe, and it was super delicious! Easy, and the instructions provided are excellent for the recipe. Will make again, and again... as long as we can find blood oranges for sale!

Black Bean Turkey Burgers
I've made various delicious turkey burgers from scratch. Sadly, this one wasn't enjoyed by either myself or hubby. It tasted completely bland and was overall unappetizing. If I were to make this recipe again, it would have to involve the addition of herbs and spices. The onion soup mix sure didn't do it.
