I'm a young (if I do say so myself!) mom to 3 boys, ages 4, 2 and 4 months (as of Jan 08), and my husband and I live on 19 acres outside of a small village called Douglas. I grew up in Ottawa, but always wanted to live in this area, having spent a lot of time around here at my parents' cottage.
Most of my time is spent with my boys and taking care of our new old 100 year old farmhouse. I absolutely love cooking and trying new things, and I'm very much into natural healing and healing through diet.
My favourite foods are a lot of the stuff that my Italian grandmother makes - extra cheesy lasagna, meat cannelloni, fantastic pasta sauce, minestrone soup, thin crust pizza (that I have recently learned to cook just like her), and, my new favourite, tiramisu. I also love good greek, lebanese, and vietnamese food. Oh, and for special occasions I make a wicked side of salmon.
I love cooking just about anything, and I'm not one of those people that needs 30 minute meals - I don't mind cooking something for 3 hours just to have it eaten in 3 minutes :) The recipes I cook the most are low fat tuna casserole (so easy and good, from the Crazy Plates cookbook), venison recipes, since my husband and dad are hunters, and waffles just about every Sunday morning for breakfast. I aim to make at least one vegetarian meal meal each week.
There aren't a whole lot of good restaurants in the area, but when we go into Ottawa we love Theo's Greek Taverna, where we've never had less than a stellar meal, and Saigon, a fantastic Vietnamese restaurant in the market with the best lettuce wraps I've ever had.
