I was born in Ireland. Lived in Australia for almost all my life. I met my husband when he was on leave from the Army (just got back from Iraq) a year later we married and the rest is history.... :)
My favorite things to cook
Old world dishes from Ireland, and Australia and of coarse casseroles now since they are one of my husband's fav. things to eat.
My favorite family cooking traditions
At Christmas time, we bake Irish and Australian sweets and since my husband is of British decent we also bake english sweets.
My cooking triumphs
I finally mastered my mother in laws chicken salad (seems trivil I know but was a huge ordel getting it like my husband grew up on) and I finally now can make my great grandma's shortbread recipe.
My cooking tragedies
custard!!!! I really did not temper the eggs slowly enough and ended up with the sweetest thickest scrambled eggs ever!!! YUCK!!!!! :(
