Hi, I live on Vancouver Island in British Columbia. I am semi-retired; I have a Bed & Breakfast, which is temporarily closed. When I have guests I enjoy making special breakfasts that are easy, quick, tasty and different. I like cooking for my husband who enjoys all foods, and for family and friends. I enjoy baking more. I try to cook with low-fat ingredients in mind, including deserts..but everything must be tasty. I do not have an all-time favorite cookbook ..I find recipes from magazines, tv, newspapers, & then compile them in a cookbook of my own..I 'try & test' the recipes..if tasty,I keep 'em, if not, out it goes! I tend to use old recipes over & over, new ones sometimes are a disappointment.
