About this Cook
I'm an 18 year old from London, England. I can't ever remember not cooking, so I guess I've been doing it for quite a while :D
My favorite things to cook
Food for friends and family, regardless of what style!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I wish I could say we have traditions, but really they're just classic English :D I suppose "Oh My Gosh Cake" is one, it's what my mum used to make when people would come round to tea and there was no dessert in the house! It would consist of whatever was in the cupboard! :D
My cooking triumphs
I have perfected Bruce Bogtrotters Chocolate Cake, and also make mean brownies!

Hobo Bread
I did this a little different... purely because i wanted something quick and easy... Did it with dark brown sugar (stil the full 400g) and just mixed it all together and bunged it on the oven... Tok about 45m... Not bad bread at all!

Yummy Peanut Butter Cookies
Being English I'm not really a frequent cookie baker! I'll usually make a cake or biscuits... But an American friend of mine had a really crappy day and I tried a batch... Took me a while to get the size of dollops right, and them being perfectly cooked etc. But I would be interested to know whether this is actually supposed to make a dough? Like one you work with your hands into balls? Did I just have too littel flour or something? Anyway regardless of my amateur American baking skills the cookies were lovely I would definately make them again :D Jess
