The Real Chefs in my life.......

Cooking and baking are not just a hobby of mine handed down to me from my Mom. They are the dreams and lifelong passions of most of my family members. My niece and her husband are both chefs, he teaches at SAIT in southern Alberta, and she is the Atco Blue Flame Chef. You can find her recipes and her videos on line here. I love to visit them, both because they are veritable fountains of knowledge when it comes to anything cooking and baking and food in general.....but they treat you like visiting royalty!! Every meal is an array of wonderful tastes and mouth watering dishes.
Thanks for all the recipes and the love and comfort of those memorable meals together you two!

Hi Margaret B, I have been wondering about you. It is great to have two chefs in your family. I know I would like that to be able to learn about some of the dishes that are made that look complicated, but aren't really that hard. I loved the chocolate chip cookie recipe. They were so yummy. Have a great week. Your Missouri Friend.

How wonderful! I bet there have been some lovely meals prepared by those two. We stayed in a bungalow in Sri Lanka where there was a personal chef and the food was out of this world. My 15 year exclaimed that if that was the last meal he ever had, he would be happy. Ha! I love good food! Best wishes for the week ahead. Tammy

Hello Margareth.
I.m proud, because my daughter, she is 19 years old, have to learn to chef. And now she is chef, but she is going to learn for 2 years more. then she is a chef alround ( I don't know how I can tell you what I means).
Then she really thougt that she became a eating house of fish.
She likes to be a chef and she is working hard.
Greetings Marga
