About this Cook
I was born in Glasgow, Scotland, I moved down to Northampton, England in October 2000 due to my husbands new employment, I worked in an office most of my working life and now work in a pre-school nursery as an assistant and loving it, I also help out at Scouts with Beavers, we have a son who is 15 at present but growing rapidly. We all miss our families back home in Scotland but return at least once a year (sometimes twice).
My favorite things to cook
I like cooking lots of thing, I am a plain cook, I don't do fancy stuff, just plain old good home cooking, I enjoy making soup and lots of other dishes, I enjoy this web site in particular and have tried various recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mum was a super cook and could make a mean pot of soup, one of the family favourites was Syrup dumpling mmmmmmmmm it was terrific.
My cooking triumphs
I wouldn't say I had any triumphs in particular, I just enjoy cooking as long as it is edible and looks good. although I enjoy cooking when I am away with Beaver and Cub Scouts - that is always a challenge they are not too fussy but they enjoy their food,I cook indoors, maybe thats not much of a challenge but it is to me when there is roughly 33 people ( I only cook for 3 at home!).
