My ActivityI have no recent activity to share.
I live in Canada's capital (Ottawa, Ontario) and love it, although years ago I lived on the West Coast (Vancouver, B.C.) and loved it, too.
I am retired and really enjoy cooking, so reading recipes is almost a passion. Every time I bring out a new recipe I hear "Oh, not again!" from my hubby, but I notice he enjoys almost everything I try. We have a rating system for new recipes, and he always lets me know his opinion.
Pet peeves include people who are afraid to try new foods and people who are habitually late.
Favorite cook books are 5-Roses and the three new ones by our Canadian Podleski sisters - Crazy Plates, Looney Spoons and their latest, Eat, Shrink and be Merry. They are delightful and really informative.
I am really glad that I found Recipezaar!! I spend a lot of time reading about other members, browsing their recipes and reading their comments about the recipes they have tried. A lot of good ideas have come my way, and I am sure there will be more. Thanks to all of you out there who have made my days much more pleasurable.
Favorite FoodsI am a ground beef addict, although I think pasta (any kind) has got to be my favorite comfort food. Bread and really good gravy is a favorite, too. As a kid, when my mom offered desserts, I would opt for bread and gravy (and still would). My favorite things to cook are pasta sauces and, of course, ground beef. I also love cooked vegetables - casseroles with cabbage, turnip, lima beans, kidney beans, onions, celery - the whole shebang.
I am not very good with desserts - perhaps that is because I don't care for them very much.
Don't really have a favourite restaurant, but Rockin' Johnny's puts together a really awsome breakfast. The only thing is, you have to be a lumberjack to get through their meals.
