About this Cook
I'm a 39 years old stay-at-home mom of 5 children (ages 16,15,13,10,4 tears old). I was born in Zuid-Holland, but we have been living in Drenthe for almost 10 years now, and we're not planning to go back ever!
My favorite things to cook
Cakes and desserts, Italian food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
When the children are having their birthday, they always ask for home-baked birthday cake (dutch whipped cream cake and apple cake). An alltime favorite for dinner is lasagna bolognese.
My cooking triumphs
My husband prefers driving home and eating my food rather than eating in a restaurant after work.
My cooking tragedies
Cooking dinner when the children are tired and asking for attention... The result has been burnt food a couple of times....

Very good! Even my meat-loving family members simply loved it!

Dried Apricot Pie
A delicious pie, but a bit too sweet. Next time I'll add less sugar. I put in some grated lemon rind for balance.
