I live in Barrie, Ontario. I am married with four kids, one is a step and lives with her bio-mom in another province. My biggest pet peeve at this point is...when I make something great and try it out on friends, then they try to replicate it and try it on me only to find out they slaughtered it! To make a truly great meal you must have top quality ingredients. You can't go cheap(i.e. breaded chicken cutlets for chicken parmesean *barf* *barf*)or with poor quality ingredients.
