About this Cook
Recently retired and loving it.
My favorite things to cook
new recipes, meals that freeze well (throwback to working fulltime and raising a family), especially soups from good stock
My favorite family cooking traditions
when my children were little I loved baking for Sunday tea. especially liked making cut and come-again cakes, doughnuts, scones etc
My cooking triumphs
making a Christmas lunch for 20 people - huge turkey, plus a ham and all the usual vegetables, (including a mountain of brussel sprouts).
My cooking tragedies
just about everything I tried to cook for about the first six months after being married!

Bev's Orange Chicken
Thanks Bev. This is a really useful recipe. Tweaked a bit... added several teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce and used dried onions in place of onion soup. I thought the sauce was a bit too runny and reduced it by simmering until it had reached a thicker consistency. Serving it to my visiting family tonight.

Cheesy Potato Kugel
My husband raved about this dish. I did not add any oil but to encourage browning, 'painted' the potatoes with olive oil twice during cooking process. Excellent result, crispy top covering almost fondant potatoes. Will be making this again when my family visit for Christmas. Thanks for this great recipe.
