I live in a century old farmhouse on the Bruce Peninsula of Ontario. I work as an artist and bring that creative chaos into the kitchen! My favourite cookbook is my collection of my, my mom and grandma's recipes - called Bountiful. I put it together as a gift last Christmas and it's over 120 pages! My passions are family, friends, living healthy and happy, working towards a safe and loving world. My pet peeves? nasty people, mittens with holes, coffee dregs, margarine and cool whip.
