About this Cook
26yrs old, living with my boyfriend of 3yrs, extremely happy. Been baking since I was really little and cooking meals since I was 14 for my family. I loved it and used to pretend I was a TV chef :-)!
My favorite things to cook
Absolutely anything, will try everything once at least.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mum wasn't a great cook but was a good baker. I always helped when she made apple pies. My grandad however was an amazing cook/baker and so I learnt a lot from watching him. Croxy Park Cake was his legacy and crispy roast potatoes!!
My cooking triumphs
Valentines Day this year, I was very broke and so couldn't afford a gift. So I bought a few offcuts of material and made our living room into a bedouin tent, with loads of cushions and pillows to sit on. I made a aubergine and honey starter and lobster(frozen one mum bought us for christmas in a food hamper she made us), morocaccan lamb tagine with cous cous and moroccan homemade bread. My biggest triumph yet!
My cooking tragedies
Once did stuffed trout fillets when I was about 16 copying a recipe on Ready Steady Cook and they where horrific!! We chucked them out and got a take away.

Sweet Corn Cakes
I followed the ingrediants as directed but instead of making one large cake I made little individual ones. These where extremely greasey and you can tell in photo I posted. Although they tasted reasonable they were jsut to greasey. I think if I make them next time I'll reduce the butter and increase the flour as suggested in other posts to get a better rise.

Curried Honey Mustard Chicken
This is absolutely gorgeous. I actually mede it up and froze it in a ziplock bag till we wanted it. Used some for the BBQ last weekend and everybody loved it. We also ate it for dinner last night and the flavours where amazing. Definately a keeper!!!!!!!

Aunt Mary's Eggplant Balls
Ok so at first glance you think oh another aurbergine (eggplant) recipe. HOWEVER, this was beautiful and surprisingly filling. I had no eggs though so just left them out and to be honest they held together great without them. I served with a basic tomato and red wine sauce and wholewheat pasta. Delicious and BF would like them next week too (this is the guy who hates aubergines!!!!). These would be great as finger party food with a nice dip or in a pitta bread with salad. Well theres no end of possibilities. I posted a photo too. Well done Aunt Mary!
