About this Cook
I was born, raised and received my early education in Toronto Canada where there is a thriving multicultural environment. With my husband, now retired from the Cdn military and our three children I have lived in Beirut Lebanon,Mons Belgium, Montgomery Alabama,Colorado Springs Co and 5 Cdn provinces. I attended college in BC and journalism in Ontario.

My cooking tragedies
There are two that stand out. When first married I attempted baking powder biscuits (a personal favourite), but there was just a stringy, gooey mess. The other was a dinner for guests shortly after our arrival in Belgium. I had bought Cornish Game Hen at the American PX, prepared them as usual, but forgot that the gas stove could be so temperamental. (A friend once remarked that it could bake ceramics). When I thought the Hens were ready,they were whisked in with a flourish to be greeted with great oohs and ahhs. Then came the moment of truth-- nobody could cut into them; the knives kept bouncing off!! The stove had done me in.

Iced Coffee
As my generation used to say "It's a blast." Simple to make. I only changed the order of ingredients---added the chocolate syrup and Nestlé's instant Espresso granules to really warm water so the syrup mixed easily when stirred by hand. A new summertime favourite.

Bacon and Date Appetizer
I can't believe these have become popular once more! They were the absolute high end cocktail party fave's during the early '50's and would be the first to disappear. I prefer to use low sodium bacon as it truly compliments the flavour of the dates

Garlicky Appetizer Shrimp Scampi
Sounds a lot like Shrimp Scampi which was so popular during the '5o's. For those who need a shortcut in time and effort, use a good quality Italian salad dressing(adding extra garlic is recommended)and marinate at least 1/2 hr then place under broiler for about 2 mins each side. During last 2 mins brush with extra marinade. if using fresh shrimp broil on both sides til dark pink.Bon appetite!
