About Me

Welcome to this collection of food tidbits from a transplanted Canadian living in Plano, Texas.  I bring with me a love for simple, well-cooked food and since we must eat 3 times a day, food is my obsession. 

I married my high school sweetheart 38 years ago which is when my passion for cooking started.  I love trying new foods and methods of cooking which my three girls did not always appreciate as they were growing up.  Sunday dinners in the dining room is where I really started to explore food choices since my rule was always you had to try whatever I made (one spoonful or forkful at least) and if you didn't like it you didn't have to finish it.  I would always try one unique item, either an appetizer or an element of the entree or dessert, so there was always something that one could eat and be satisfied. 

As a result, my three adult girls love to explore foods as well and are becoming quite the cooks. 

This blog is a way for me to share recipes with friends and family and keeps me focused on trying new recipes.  It's also a fun way to be able to look back and see what was going on as time goes by.

Thanks for taking the time to visit and please feel free to leave me a comment!
