About this Cook
I'm a married, full-time working mother of three in my early forties. I love to share recipes that have worked for me with other strapped-for-time mums.
My favorite things to cook
Anything sweet, anything quick and easy!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Passing on the skills to feed themselves to my children - cooking and quality time together. We cook and make gifts at Christmas together, too.
My cooking triumphs
Getting a meal on the table every night.
My cooking tragedies
I always make sure the oven racks are in level after The Birthday Cake Disaster. The shelf had been put in on one level on one side and the next rung down on the other side, which I didn't notice until the cake came out, half an inch thick on one side and about six inches on the other!

Slow Cook Thai Chicken
I made this exactly as per the recipe - it was fantastic! The only change I will make next time is to put the capsicum (peppers) in towards the end of the cooking time, probably with some green beans - that would make it 5 stars. I would also call this Satay Chicken rather than Thai Chicken, but I'm not going to quibble when it was so good - it was over 45C (that's 114F!!) today, so it was great to have a tasty meal with so little effort.

Easy Baked Chicken
This one is on high rotation at my house. I use boneless, skinless thigh fillets, a no-oil balsamic dressing and a stuffing mix flavoured with parsely, sage, rosemary,thyme and marjoram. Then I bake the chicken until I can smell it! Perfect every time.

Carol's Arroz Con Pollo
This was so popular at my house, we had it 2 nights in a row! I made it as a one pot dish and while it is quite tasty, I agree with others that it is lacking "something". But it's very easy and a crowd pleaser, so I'll keep testing it on the family.
