About this Cook
Hi, I love to cook for my wonderful husband, and he loves the fact that I can come up with so many different meal ideas! is my secret weapon for keeping him happy at mealtimes.
My favorite things to cook
I like cooking things in my slow cooker as they don't require a lot of effort on the weekends, and I do a lot of salads, soups and baking for lunches during the week to take to work.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sunday roast dinners, yum.
My cooking triumphs
I have become renowned with my family in law for always cooking fantastic dishes as they have a lot of potlucks. Also, I always get asked about recipes and cooking ideas at work and half the ladies are twice my age and have huge families, so it makes me feel happy that I can give them cooking advice.
My cooking tragedies
I once tried to make a Pumpkin and Salmon pasta but used twice the specified amount and canned salmon instead of fresh salmon and it ended up being far too overpowering. I nearly made my husband throw up.

Pasta e Olio
For something that seemed so simple, this was amazing! I served this as a side dish with Chicken Parmigiana and it was a really great balance. The combination of flavours was spot on and I really enjoyed it.
