Me and my girl
About this Cook
I work at a doggy gaycare. I have two kids - who are of course the best in the world!
My favorite things to cook
Whole foods. Health issues have forced me to learn and love. Simple carbs are a problem so we have to make most things from scratch.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Keep it simple - processed is a no no. We are from an Anglo Saxon background and are getting in touch with out roots. Great Britain lost a lot of it culinary traditions in the depression and world wars - which is a shame.
My cooking triumphs
Getting my kids to eat whole grains...and thank me for it! Finally figuring out how to make our own bread (thanks to a kitchenaid mixer - and my husband!)
My cooking tragedies
Whenever my mother visits and I try to impress her, everything goes to peices!

Three Bean Salad
Just super - and easy. This is the only bean salad I EVER make.

Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting
Great tips about the heating and cooling of the mixing bowl. Mine was very smooth. I would only add half the cream next time though - personal preference though. Note - this makes enough for 12 HUGE cupcakes!

Tzatziki II
Followed advice about cucumbers and it worked like a charm. Some water did come to the surface when stored in fridge - but just carefully poured it off (just like I do with natural yogurt!). Exactly what I was looking for. Fresh mint from my garden - yummy.
