I'm a 40 yr old foodie currently living in Aurora, IL. I'm very fortunate in that I have plenty of friends and family who will try everything I make, and I'm constantly using them as my guinea pigs! I was born and raised in Canada by my French Canadian parents. I grew up eating a lot of French Canadian foods, and I just love getting back home to Canada to taste mom's delicious cooking. She has always inspired me to cook.
My cooking triumphs
Planning and making a 6-course meal for business associates who were in town. Not only was this the most time-consuming meal I've ever made, it was my first time meeting all of them in person! Stressful day, but a huge success!
My cooking tragedies
Hmm...how about reaching into the oven to take out the Thanksgiving turkey and having the cheap pan collapse, dumping the hot turkey and scorching liquids onto my bare feet. YEEEE-OUCH!
