Finally, some summer weather! What a rainy, blah June it was here in Vernon. I probably shouldn't complain though because soon the temperatures will start to soar to 40 plus degrees C and I'll be wishing for the rain! Thank goodness for the awesome lakes the Okanagan has! BBQ season hit in… MORE

About this Cook
I am a nurse and am the mother to 3 fantastic young boys ages 13, 9, and 8
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy trying new recipes. There are not many dishes that I repeat regularly. They have to be really special to get placed in the Family Favorites Scrapbook that I have created. I make a killer lasagna and I my chili is to die for (in my opinion). I also have a rather extensive cookbook collection that I have to regularly weed out due to space constrictions.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We live only a few blocks from my parents and we alternate each year who makes Thanksgiving and Christmas. Whoever does Thanksgiving has a rest for Christmas and vice versa.
My cooking tragedies
My husband broke the tip of my good Henkel's chef's knife trying to separate frozen sausages.

Apple Pear Sauce
My house smelled absolutely amazing as this sauce simmered on the stove.So easy and economical when apples and pears are in season!

Asian Lettuce Wraps
I really liked this recipe. It had a unique flavour and was easy to make - my kids really liked it too! I didn't have water chestnuts on hand so I used celery instead to give it a nice crunch. Even better reheated as a leftover after the flavours mingled together. Thanks for this great recipe!

Stir-Fried Vegetables with Chicken or Pork
I really liked this recipe as it's very versatile and I just threw in whatever stir fry veggies I had. I used chicken broth as opposed to bouillon cubes and omitted the salt as others suggested and didn't find it too salty. To me it tasted very much like black bean chicken I would take out but with less fat and salt. Thanks! This will be repeated as long as I have black bean sauce in my house! The whole family loved it!
