About this Cook
My cooking tragedies
For some reason, every time I make a cake, I have to make two as the first one almost invariably gets screwed up. I don't know why, and I'm hoping one day things will change or I will need to get my own chicken for the eggs I use.

Easy Pavlova
My go-to recipe for meringue. Make it exactly as written and it turns out well every time. The trickiest bit is getting the egg whites to the perfect stiff not dry consistency. Sometimes I leave in the oven to cool, sometimes I don't. It cracks a bit either way.

Fig and Olive Tapenade
This recipe is a crowd-pleaser. It can be whipped together in about fifteen minutes and makes tons. I've made it with fresh herbs and dried and like the dried for the cruchy texture they give. As far as serving... I've done the block of cream cheese but prefer to serve ramekins filled with cream cheese and the tapenade (separately) on a plate with crackers and a garnish of fresh sprigs of rosemary. Again, so good and so easy. What's not to love?
