Eating the right type of foods has always been a problem for me.  While growing up at home I was  raised on meat and potatoes with gravy and all the rest of the foods that did not satisfy me in the least.  I would pick at my meat serving and end up giving it to our pet or leaving it on the… MORE

When all was said and done yesterday I was enjoying my cake that I had made and then tried to cool off somehow with a tremendous heat wave that seemed to envelop me and kept me going for a drink all afternoon.  The most important thing is that my cake did not flop so I have another recipe to… MORE

It is the middle of the week and I am ready to start off on a clean slate with my normal time at the Eco Society being put on hold for just this week.  The sun is starting to shine again and my rosehip bush has multiplied the number of blossoms on its branches since it started putting some… MORE

About Me
I am a single male who enjoys cooking main dishes and baking pies,cakes and cookies for myself and others. I have short order cook training that I took in College and some practical experience at home and restaurants. I have a cat named Christopher who lives with me in my trailer in Slocan,B.C.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are Macaroni and cheese, Pumpkin Pie, Lemon Meringue Pie, Spaghetti with tomato sauce, cheese omelet, and carrot cake
My favorite family cooking traditions
In my family we cooked mainly english meals which I did enjoy while growing up at home. We always had roast beef and potatoes on Sunday and Fish and Chips during the week. We always had eggs and bacon on Saturday morning and Pancakes on Sunday morning.
My cooking triumphs
I have made several pies consisting of pumpkin, lemon meringue and bacon quiches that have always turned out fantastic for me and I get good reviews
My cooking tragedies
My one pie that I made in Highchool did not make it home instead it ended up on our driveway when I dropped it accidentally while getting out of my friends car which I really felt bad about since I could not eat it.
