About this Cook
I'm a nanny for three kids. I only moved out of home this year and I don't know a lot about cooking yet. I get nervous when my mum's dictating a recipe to me and says "Add [insert seasoning here] to taste." I'm not entirely comfortable with guessing.
My favorite things to cook
I like cooking anything that I know the kids'll love or that they can help with. I also love cooking for my friends. My best friend Mitch and I are searching for the perfect pizza recipe and we love experimenting.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I used to love watching my mum or grandmother making homemade gnocchi, ravioli or other pastas.
My cooking triumphs
My caramelised onion and fetta pizza, my onion, garlic and mushroom pizza and my slow-cooked lamb shanks.
My cooking tragedies
No major tragedies yet. YET!

Shaved Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Almonds
This was delicious! I will make this again and again. Only problem I had was the 18 hours it took to slice all the sprouts. Still, the effort was well worth the end results.

Old Fashioned Scalloped Tomatoes
This is my ultimate comfort food. So easy to throw together and so satisfying as a side or a main. I love tomatoes with cheese so if I have it lying around I'll stir through some grated mozzarella before baking.

Greek Potato Stew
My mum's been making this for years and now that I've moved out I make it for my boyfriend and I. Always goes down a treat even though neither of us likes kalamata olives.
