About this Cook
Married. One child aged 32. Like cardmaking and craft work. Am a Christian and husband is a local preacher. Like Christian music, read a lot of books mostly biographies, non-fiction and cookbooks. Would like to do real cooking but finances limit me greatly.
My favorite things to cook
No favourites. Hubby likes casseroles, stews, cakes, fish, creamy desserts, so attempt these. Rarely follow recipes as usually find I haven't got all the ingredients so substitute one thing for another. Have had some real disasters, and a few successes.
My cooking tragedies
Made daughter a birthday cake many years ago. Did it properly. Lined tin and timed it. Iced it and was surprised how easily the icing went on. It was only when I came to add the candles and they wouldn't go in did I realise I hadn't removed the lining paper. Cake was ruined.

Amazing Butternut Squash
What are saltine cookies? As an English member I don't have a clue what they are. The recipes sound brilliant but so often we can't get the ingredients needed, or at least they are called something different here. Is it possible to have the English alternative listed?

Gypsy Tart
This gypsy (gipsy) tart was in schools even before the 70's. I remember it from the 60's!! I have used ordinary brown sugar before, but lost the recipe as I am not an elephant. (I can never remember anything - unlike elephants who never forget - does anyone know where that saying came from by the way?). I will try this version. Thanks. Clare
