About this Cook
Hi, my name is Barbara. I am Dutch and live with my husband Paul and two cats in Dordrecht, Zuid-Holland. I have a degree in Communications, but at this moment I am a stay at home wife due to some reproductive mishaps.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking and Italian style cuisine.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom didn't like to cook much, so there aren't any family traditions.
My cooking triumphs
Having the rep with friends and family that I always cook great and make an effort when people are staying for dinner of at a party.
My cooking tragedies
Luckily not that much, the occasional not so tasty new thing of burnt rice because I am rushing and turning the heat up higher then sensible.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
Made the recipe as directed, but was rather disappointed with the result. The taste is ok, but not very spicy, though very sweet. The mixture melted in the oven, so the edges where very crisp and the middle was rather soggy. The rest of the dough is in the fridge and I will make some more tomorrow, maybe the solidfied butter will help. Considering adapting it, more spices, less sugar, more flour&egg.

Bruschetta with Shallots
My culinairy impaired friend made this to bring to our End-of-season BBQ and everyone loved it! We saved the left overs and had it the day after with some bread and capers in it to make a panzanella type salad. Yum!

Best Lemonade Ever
Never made homemade lemonade before, since it is not a very well known thing over here. But made it for a BBQ and it was a big hit! Didn't change a thing.
