About this Cook
I'm in my early 40's with a great husband, an 11year old boy and 14 year old girl, 2 chihuahuas and getting ready for chooks to join the family. Have a permaculture garden plan under way which should start to take shape by this July 2008. Looking forward to cooking what I grow.
My favorite things to cook
Home grown produce, waste not want not
My favorite family cooking traditions
special birthday cakes.
My cooking triumphs
Some of my best work has been done when camping over an open fire, damber, scones, pizza - it seems to appreciated more. The best was a full on roast dinner with Irish apple cake dessert to fool cooked on a Webber BBQ.
My cooking tragedies
I have had many bread recipes go bad in my hands

Garbanzo Bean Chocolate Cake (Gluten Free!)
with out a doubt the best recipe ever!! I am amazed at how good this cake is. I have served it with greek yogurt - so good. I also made some chocolate custard for the kids to have with this cake as a real treat ( 3 egg yolks, 2 tblsps cornflour 2 tblsp maple syrup 1 tblsp cocoa powder and 3 cups milk) They could not guess the secret ingredient, and I did not tell them until they had eaten it several times and still wanted more.
