About this Cook
I am married to a wonderful man, who encourages me to follow the things in life I love doing, mostly cooking, I am not a brilliant cook, but I enjoy it. We have three daughters and a son between us and one Golden retriever.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy to cook anything, although I suppose I like a challenge, something which will inspire me! I have a plethora, of ever growing recipe books and cards, which I use all the time, often changing ingredients to suit our tastes!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My husband and I enjoy trying new things. I guess the only tradition we really have is writting down all the recipes we enjoy the most.
My cooking triumphs
My mother told me how to make a fish pie, between her recipe and one from my favorite recipe book. I have come up with my own, which is delicious!
My cooking tragedies
Cannelloni with Ricotta and spinach, I love cheesy cannelloni and the way it goes all creamy when mixed with a tomato sauce, spinach being one of my favorite greens, this should have been perfect.. It was however quite inedible and not one I wish to try again.. Mores the pity!
Recipe Reviews 2 reviews
I lived in Germany for 22 years and Gl├╝hwein is definitely one of my favorite things.... I used to add a shot of ameretto to mine.
