About Me

My name is Amanda and my family has recently moved away from our hometown of Swift Current, Saskatchewan to the Crowsnest Pass for 8 months, then to Fernie, British Columbia.  One of my main passions is cooking (and then eating!).

My mother-in-law was a mentor of mine, even though I only got to spend a short few years with being under her wing before she was taken away by that nasty cancer.  She had owned a restaurant when she was younger, when my husband was still in high school and helping out.  Her food was so tasty and I try and replicate it with each meal I make for my family, trying to bring some of her back with the flavours.  It doesn’t work, but the memories are still there and I cherish that.

She left me all of her cookbooks and hand written recipes from a time long gone.  I even have an old red, fallen-apart duo-tang of her family favourites.  Some of those are now my favourites.  They are not family secret recipes, and I would rather share them with those who also love food, instead of keeping the goodness locked in a drawer.

I wanted to create a website to help display my love of food and spending time at home (especially in my kitchen).  I have my favourite recipes laid out here, that I hope you will take the time to prepare and enjoy for yourself and I’m positive that those you share with will thank you.

So enjoy your look around and thanks for visiting!
