About this Cook
I'm an artist, I do everything except music. Drawing and painting are my favorites, but I also love doing crafts like scrapbooking. I'm a mother who is blessed to have a little girl that loves to eat, she isn't picky at all!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. I wrote my first cookie recipe back in 1st grade or so, but until recently I couldn't do a thing with meat/dinner.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making bread with my mum, getting the fruit ready in the summer for the christmas cakes. Barbecueing with my brother. I miss my dad, who taught me everything I know about garnishing and popcorn. Cooking over an open fire while camping is something I share with all my family and friends.
My cooking triumphs
After 3 years of living together, the "chef" hat has been passed to me from my boyfriend, after I made bacon-wrapped chicken thighs. Making a cake for mother;s day and having both my gran and mum, tell me how beautiful it was.
My cooking tragedies
Meatloaf, it tasted ok, I mean everyone cleaned there plates, but it looked like cheap canned cat food.

Blueberry Drop Cookies
I used orange zest instead of lemon and vanilla instead of almond. I chilled the dough for about 3 hours and these cookies turned out great! I got 39 cookies from the recipe and my husband LOVES them. They are not a very sweet cookie, but are very flavourful, as another reviewer commented, they taste like muffin tops. I definitely recommend chilling the dough, by my third tray of baking the dough had been out of the fridge for about half an hour and was getting a little difficult to form cookies. I didn't so much drop them, as form them with a teaspoon. Also, I removed them from the hot tray to a cool one, using a metal spatula, instead of using a rack to cool. Also try to use very small blueberries so that the fruit is easily shared between the cookies. I rolled the berries in flour prior to adding it to the dough and I had no problems with the dough turning blue.
