About this Cook
I, and my family, have got about a bit. We moved from the UK about ten years ago, to Ireland and have just moved to Canada. Why? It's a big world and there's a lot to see of it. I have four children and I'm an ex professional dancer who now teaches. This takes up most of my time as I work for three different dance studios
My favorite things to cook
Anything, I love to use unusual ingredients.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Stir up Sunday and my mums Symnal cake, though I have never baked it as well as she does.
My cooking triumphs
The turkey Mole that I cooked for Mothering Sunday when I was sixteen, and then I lost the recipe :(
My cooking tragedies
A traditional Scottish Christmas cake that I made for my dad. It used whisky instead of Rum or Brandy and it came out like a brick. The plus side was it was very handy for keeping open doors, but I won't try that one again.

Mexican Brownies
These are just the best Brownies ever! I had to use Chipotle Chile powder, it was the only one I had left in the house but they were amazing, my kids loved them, my husband loved them and they will be being made again. Thank you for sharing.

Venison Chili
I did make quite a few changes, mostly because I know my families tastes. I upped the spices and cut back on the wine, this seemed to be a lot of liquid for only 2 pounds of meat and it was a very nice bottle of wine, I wanted to drink it, not eat it! Even then I added a tin of Romano beans towards the end of cooking because there was still a lot of liquid. I only added one tablespoon of sugar and am considering cutting back on the vinegar next time so I can eliminate it completely. I didn't add any canola oil to cook my bacon, it didn't need it, bacon has it's own fat and I only used one tablespoon of butter to sweat the onions in. This recipe is a good basis, my family all enjoyed it, but agreed that we'll continue tweaking it, thank you for sharing it with us.

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins
This is such an easy recipe! I also found the batter was a bit dry and I added about three tablespoons of milk and sorted it out. My kids all loved them and I will use this again, as I said it's just so quick and easy.
