About this Cook
I am 20 years old, I love cooking (i'm the only one in my family who does), I adore indian cuisine and I cannot tollerate gluten, so like to re-work recipes to suit me :) I do not believe in people making cake recipes with cake mix thats ready-made etc, and the same with other recipes, things are best from scratch all the way with me, else its cheating :P hehe
My favorite things to cook
curries, oriental stir fries, cakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm the one setting the traditions baby! :P
My cooking triumphs
I do a lot of different curries that seem to go down well (although they're usually pretty spicy) i do a nice duck with orange sauce and chinese rice, tuna steaks with lime chili and coconut sauce, sweet potato bake, fish pie, mousakka and a nice chilli con carne.
My cooking tragedies
I'm a bit prone to fires, especially if i'm allowed near microwaves :P My biggest tragedy though is not remembering how i've made some of my most yummy recipes cos i just chuck everything in and i'm very messy and unorganised :P

Truck-Stop Buttermilk Pancakes
really amazing pancake recipe!!! really nice and soft and fluffy and yummy and crispy on the edges, and for the first time in my entire life i managed to toss it without it going on the thats a sign of a good pancake if ever i saw one!! I used gluten free flour and also used lemon juice and milk instead of the buttermilk, really really good! tomorrow i shall be trying the rest of the batter out on the whole family, i'm sure they'll love these pancakes as much as me :D
