About this Cook
I love to cook for other people and has been a tremendous help. I am sure my boyfriend and all my friends appreciate it!
My favorite things to cook
I don't think I have got a favourite thing to cook. I love to bake- muffins, cakes, pies, biscuits. I am always looking for new recipes to try. I also like to be creative and hardly ever follow cooking instructions 100%. Something I have not yet succeeded as is baking bread. I have tried numours times but the outcome has not been statisfactory yet.
My favorite family cooking traditions
There are no real traditions I remember... obviously I look forward to the huge variety of Christmas biscuits year after year and at Christmas we always sit down on Christmas Eve to my grandma's homemade sausages.
My cooking triumphs
Making a Christmas dinner for my friends! The turkey, stuffing, roast potatoes- the whole lot. It was very stressful! My boyfriend was taking pictures of me while I was peeling, chopping, stirring away and I look so stressed!! Hahaha! :-) But it was definitely worth it!!
My cooking tragedies
There have ben a few! Once I tried boiling an egg in the microwave- I would not recommend this!! It exploded, the microwave door flew open and covered the whole kitchen in yellowy goo! Oh, and I once tried making bread in a muffin tin and this experiment failed as well- I ended up with "bread bricks" that nearly broke my tooth when I tried to eat one. Mmh, and sometimes I get too creative and carried away.

Royal Coconut Cookies
This is an excellent recipe! Loved it! A few things are to be considered though: - If you make this by hand like I did, use a fork to stir and not a whisk. I used my balloon whisk at the beginning and later on bent its handle because the batter gets to thick after the flour is added. It is a very thick and sticky batter so better use something sturdy. - The cookies rise a LOT! Bear this in mind when you put them on the baking sheet. Mine all stuck together. - I used half of the sugar called for and they are still delicious. Next time I might use a bit more than half to get it just right. - I did not use the salt. I never do in recipes. My butter was salted so I guess that evens it out. - I had two sheets in the oven and my cookies needed 18 min. Amazing recipe though! Will make that again for sure. As I say, they are perfect as they are, but would also be good with chocolate chips I think.

German Apple Cake I
Really excellent recipe! The cake turned out really crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside for me. Just the way I like it. I used only half of the sugar as my apples were plenty sweet and I just don't like it that sweet and it turned out beautifully.

Sweet and Sour Pork I
I made this today and it was excellent. I didn't put any of the sugar in and used balsamic vinegar as that was all I had on hand but I really like it!
