Hello and welcome to my food blog. Grab a cup of coffee, a cookie and have some fun while surfing through my blog.
I was born in Romania in the 70s and in the 80s my family and I moved to Canada. I always enjoyed cooking and baking as a kid and I was always in the kitchen with my mother helping her out. That’s where I learned how to make most Romanian dishes that you will find here. I’m not a trained chef, I just enjoy being in the kitchen and trying to cook new recipes. I try out all my recipes on my poor husband, who is quite a picky eater and has no choice but to try my food.
I wanted to create this blog to share my love for food with friends and family, because life should be delicious and because I need a place to store all my recipes. These recipes are recipes that my family and I have enjoyed over the years, so share them with your friends and family as you choose. Romanian food is not a very well known cuisine, so I hope to change that here and hopefully turn some foodies onto enjoying Romanian cuisine. Please leave your comments if you have tried any of the recipes and have enjoyed them, I love reading to see what people think.
Occasionally, I will bore you with pictures of my dog, whom I love dearly and is just my best friend in the world. Her name is Mia and she is a 10 year old beagle, who is the cutest beagle in the world. She is the biggest fan of my cooking and will pretty much eat anything you put in her plate. She watches me cook every single time and awaits anxiously for
food bacon to make its way on the floor. You never have a dirty floor with her around, that’s for sure. She’s a great cleaner upper.
If you’re looking for a recipe you may not find easily, please use the search bar in the top right hand corner or click on Recipe Index in the top menu.
Please do not use my pictures or recipes on your website without asking me first. My rule is that you can use either the recipe or the picture and link back to my blog, but you cannot use both.
Feel free to email me at info @ jocooks . com with any questions, or post a comment here or on any of the recipes.
