About this Cook
I have been married for 12 years and I am the mother of two beautiful kids.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook (and eat) sweet stuff! Baking is definately my favourite ... but I enjoy cooking everything, even just a casserole for my family.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Christmas for the past 15 or so years we have a Christmas Eve party - always with the exact same menu! It is a tradition for me to make marshmallow truffles, which are a particular favourite of my Dads.
My cooking triumphs
Catering my Grandmothers wedding reception and My Dad's 50th Birthday Party with my Mum and sister... we always have a great time cooking together. And both events were a great success. Also, baking my Sisters 3 tier wedding cake when we had no idea what we were doing! And it turned out perfect :-)
My cooking tragedies
Cooking a carrot cake for my husbands brithday the first year we were married. The cake was awlful, stodgy and wouldn't cook! When I went back and checked the recipe I realized I'd written down half the recipe of Carrot Cake, then must have gotten distracted and started writing down the recipe from the opposited page of the book.

Greek Pasta Salad I
Delicious - we made this is bulk for a wedding and it was great. Especially good that you can make ahead and it doesn't dry out.

French Baguettes
Perfect, delicious loaves - though not a true baguette...crust and bread are soft and light - not crunchy and chewy as a baguette should be. Will definately make again however as it makes a nice loaf.
