About this Cook
I'm 26 and in my third year of Marriage. I've lived in England for 5 years, but still specialise in American home cooking! I work for an independant (private) school as their swimming pool manager. My husband and I are both committed Christians and active in our local church.
My favorite things to cook
Cottage Pie- husband's favourite! Sausage Gravy- my favourite comfort food. All kinds of cakes and muffins. I love trying out new things in my slow cooker.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Each year my grandmother, mother, sister and myself will bake Christmas Cookies. Since we only make these ones at Christmas it's very special. I make them when I'm not in the states for Christmas and it makes me feel not so far away.
My cooking triumphs
A gorgeous roast beef dinner for 6 people on my birthday. Spinach Casserole that was a main dish for 4 children and they gobbled it up and loved it! My chocolate fudge cake is becoming a firm favourite.
My cooking tragedies
a disatrous fish pie which was immediately thrown in the bin. It was meant to have a crunchy egg white crust on top of a lovely creamy mix of haddock, salmon and prawns. My cream sauce separated and I ended up with egg white omelette on top. It was absolutely hideous. I've never attempted it since. We got chinese takeout instead!

Sweet and Sour Sauce I
a little bit too much on the vinegar side for us...I'd cut back on that next time.

Slow Cooker Italian Chicken Alfredo
Fantastic...I used cream of mushroom soup and omitted the mushrooms since hubby doesn't like big bits of mushroom, but this was creamy pasta heaven for a date night with him! I'll definitely make this again!

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole
Good, I added some garlic powder, next time I'd probably add a minced clove of garlic. It was good, it just seemed to be missing something on the seasoning side.

Hard to believe, but many kids will be back in school at the end of the month. Get ready.
