About this Cook
I'm a 24 year old graduate in accounting and finance. I studied at The University of Wales! I love the outdoors and going to the cinema!
My favorite things to cook
I love baking and cooking old traditional recipes from England. I follow a recipe for the first time and more often than not i tweak it to mine and my partners tastes!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My first attempt at cooking on my own was a ginger cake when i was about 10 years old and i remembered the recipe from memory to impress my auntie carole (who i learned to bake from) Also i gain alot of inspiration from my grandmother and my mother who are both amazing cooks!
My cooking triumphs
Creating a feast for about 20 students at university high quality food on a very tight budget.. they said it couldnt be done... i showed them :P
My cooking tragedies
I cannot make cookies!! I would love to make a chewy cookie!! They always turn out bad for whatever reason! So if you know of any full proof recipes please let me know!!!!!

Hi Everyone - Another English review - To stop the veg from going muchy I put all of the fresh cut vegetables in a colinder and then sprincle a good pinch of salt over them - pop this over a bowl and then cover with a tea towl - set this aside over night - then the day after the water should have drawn out of the veg and be int he bowl below! then quickly rince off but not too much as to rehidrate the vegetables - this process keeps the veg crunchy. But I woould not make this again. I too found it far too salty and also far too thin.

Dark Chocolate Cake I
I wanted a chocolate cake for my boyfriends birthday and I chose this one. . . the story went that i split the batter into 2 and the first batch sunk in the middle but the second came out perfect! (i have no idea what i did!) Everyone loved this cake and I have given the recipe to three of my friends already! (one a chef!) The sunk cake did not go to waste... heated up with some ice cream and it was amazing! Thank you very much for this! A definite keeper! :)

Award Winning Chili Con Carne
me and my partner loved this! However next time we will be reducing the amount of heat - a little 2 spicy but such a yummy recipe! I added a tsp of ground cinnamon to bring out the flavour and also added some sived tomatoes through out as it seemed to be getting a little thick! We served it with corn bread & sour cream! A keeper! Thank you for sharing!
