    Of Course I Can!

    I'm a woman aren't I? No but seriously. I'm a pretty good cook. I've been making my own food since I was about nine or ten years old so I've learned to be pretty good at it. My specialty is spaghetti. Another food that seems to keep people coming back is my curry, and my barbeque...

    I Can Cook

    I have been cooking for most of my life.  When I first started I had to use a stool to reach the top of the stove!  That also coincided with my first gainful employment!  I would cook breakfast for a quarter a plate for all the hungover men at the family cottage!  It was a...

    My Wife and Kids Prefer Me Too.

    When ever I am home I am almost always the main cook.  I have a variety of cooking talents, but I can not pan fry to save my life.  It works well though because that is one of the areas my wife excells at.  But, there is an unspoken ban on my wife making baked...

    To kill to consume is awkward

    So, Last Night

    I made cornbread and butter beans.  I bitched all week about not having margarine to grease the pan with the batter, and guess what?  I FORGOT TO GREASE THE PAN!!  Lol, it still came out fine.  I got it out of the pan, and the beans are good.

    I'm a vegan, so it I'd quite complex getting a

    good wholesome meal. There's lots of preparation in all I do, so the first art is shopping. Finding so place with no cross contamination, a vegan shop. I like various nuts which is a help. I'm particularly partial to almonds.

    That I have to cook! It's not fair that just because I am good at something I have to do it! He can make dinner too. I don't mind that I am a better cook. Sometimes I think he fakes being a bad cook to avoid doing it!
