About this Cook
I love to cook, and lived in Thailand for a few years. That's where I learned the "art" of cooking. I really appreciate authentic Asian cooking.
My favorite things to cook
Thai food, Japanese food Desserts
My favorite family cooking traditions
Being Dutch myself, I enjoy cooking a lot of Dutch recipes. One thing I find about a lot of them is they are usually simple and foolproof!
My cooking triumphs
Moving to Thailand just a year ago, I came without any knowledge of asian cooking. After cooking for just over two months, I often heared comments like "Did you buy this or actually cook it yourself?" Apparently they could not tell the difference. Also I have learned that with the Thai foods, presentation is everything. If it doesn't look pretty, they won't want to eat it. It is actually really enjoyable trying to cook in a way that will look nice when it is finished.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I made a pizza crust I didn't use the yeast properly and it turned out flat and as hard as a rock. I think we just ate the toppings that time.

Cowboy Oatmeal Cookies
Wonderful recipe! I made a double batch and was very impressed. They turned out perfectly chewy, and not too soft. I also liked that it didn't use too much of the expensive butter. Oil is much cheaper here.

Best Brownies
These brownies were awesome... Really enjoyed the texture. Not cakey but not too fudgey either...

Tea Biscuits
Didn't turn out quite how I like them. A bit dry I found. They had great flavour though. Tasted great with a little butter and jam...
