Apologies to those that hoped this would be a Busen memo list. There are some things that my skill at - or lack thereof - I don't discuss in public. In actuality, on the everlastingly boring day, I thought I'd marry to loves: board games (which I still semi-suck at) and cooking (where I have more success). So, a list of the things that I make well enough that I'd say they could stand up to heavy competition.

Bread…I sell 45 loaves of bread every Saturday, and a varying number throughout the week. I wish I was as good at making money as I am at making bread.

I’d say my business is pretty much evenly divided between bread, Euro-style cakes & desserts and cookies. I make some damn fine cookies. I have one customer that doesn’t live here, but when she is going to be visiting she always phones first to make sure the cookies at the deli I sell to that week will be her favourites. I love that she loves them that much! My kids like the sugar cookies with glace icing best. I’ve decided that for snack at our next games night I’m going to make square cookies and ice them to look like dice. Or maybe I’ll make meeple cookies. There is one kid that comes to our games night (this is a once a month deal for my kids and their friends) that I think hates games…but loves to eat. If I know he is coming I make extra. Not that you’d notice: I am amazed at the amount of cookies a group of 13 year old boys can put away over the course of an evening!

Chocolate Fudge. I love this stuff. Too much, apparently. I decided once to freeze some leftover pieces, thinking I wouldn’t eat them all at once. Turns out frozen chocolate fudge is the best thing ever. Drat! It’s taken me 6 months to lose 15 pounds. I’ll have to skip making fudge this Christmas. Course, that means that my ability to pay for new board games at Christmas will shrink. Guess I’ll have to work on the whole will power thing.

ok, it is a different type of soup, but still, we eat a lot of soup at my house, over the course of the winter. ‘Course, that might have to do with how cold it gets here. If you’re from Saskatchewan you know what I am talking about, if you don’t, you don’t want to know. I make stock whenever I have the bits to make it with, freeze it and make lots of soup to keep us warm and cozy until spring appears again.

I can’t tell you how many butter tarts I make at Christmas. I know how many mince, because it seems only people of my dad’s generation like mince, but I make so many butter tarts I lose track.

I love cooking (ok, you’ve probably worked that one out) but I tend to the pastry end of things more than the meat and potatoes end. There are pies that I suck at (I’ve never made a blueberry pie that I couldn’t find fault with. Sometimes faults, plural), some that I’m good at and two that I think could stand without shame amongst the great pies of the world. One of them is apple. I actually call it Archival Apple (I’m an archivist) because it is an adaptation of a recipe someone brought into work. I’m no slacker in the apple crisp department, either. I’m originally from Quebec, and I have a special fondness for anything apple. By the by, I havn't bought this game yet. It looks like it would be boring quickly, on the other hand I have kids that play games. Should I buy this?

The other great pie is Pumpkin. Although this game should be pumpkin queen, not king! And to confess, I rarely use pumpkin as the squash. If I do, we call it pumpkin pumpkin pie. If I use any other squash – butternut, banana, acorn, etc. – we call it pumpkin pie. I think that came about when the kids were really little.

Omelette. This is the only thing that I can boast as being internationally popular. Well, almost. We had a popular band over for supper once before a performance. I had made chili and some really cool dessert. Turns out that one of the band members is a vegetarian. So I made an omelette. Weeks later I get a call from Spain of all places, where they are on tour. The Omelette eater wanted to know how to make an omelette as good as the one he’d had at our house. To me it is just an omelette, but who am I to argue with a well known musician?

Don't forget to add a little spice...

Paprika, Mustard, Sesame, Rosemary, Dill, and Pepper actually came in the playing pieces for this game.
