If you can incorporate these four Bs into a meal, I totally recommend it. Here's how I did it: Sirloin burgers with Boursin cheese middles and as a topper. Oven applewood bacon, also a topper along with sliced avocado.¬†Beer on the side. Not rocket science, but dang, the Boursin cheese + bacon… MORE

About this Cook
Just started a website at that's dedicated to the love of food. Besides that, I love to laugh, bake, cook, run, garden, read, watch TV, high-kick to music, pull pranks and then laugh some more. I'm also a jigsaw puzzler and by day, a broadcast producer/media production supervisor.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking and baking anything that brings a smile to the person eating it! It's also satisfying for me to cook large or intricate meals to challenge myself and see if I can do it well and in a timely manner.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Breakfast for dinner was my favourite family cooking tradition: buckwheat pancakes, crispy bacon, homemade buttery syrup, halved grapefruit and big glasses of ice-cold milk. I didn't know what a buttermilk pancake was until I was much older! :o) One other, now that I think of it, was coming home to find live crabs walking around on the kitchen counter. My father would pick them up for dinner, fresh and cook them. Crab legs are one of, if not my favourite meal to this day. And! Loved going to the orchards when I was a kid to pick fresh fruit and then bake it into pies. Yum!
My cooking triumphs

Peanut Butter Vegetable Chicken Soup
Amazing! I'm eating it right now. I added dried chilis to mine for some kick and topped it with chopped green onions. Also crushed some peanuts and threw them in. So good!

Easy Banana Brownies
Wow! Great recipe! They're really good brownies. I used whole wheat flour and baked them a few extra minutes and they turned out perfect. The WW flour gives the brownie a nice texture.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies
Awesome cookie! A touch sweet for me, I'd cut down the sugar a tad next time. And I'm going to try icing them with cream cheese frosting next time too.
