I live with my partner, who loves his food, and two dogs and a cat, who also love their food! Did I mention, we all love our food in this household!
My favorite things to cook
I inherited a love of baking from my mum. I also love to make my own stocks, gives me a virtuous feeling that I am being thrifty! I also enjoy trying new recipes - the reason for joining this site!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking is a strong family tradition, I first learned to make scones when I was five and often helped my mum out by beating butter and sugar together for cakes, using a wooden spoon as we had no electric mixer. It helped me develop strong arm muscles!
My cooking triumphs
Every time I make something that people enjoy eating.
My cooking tragedies
When I came home from work exhausted one day and spent the evening making a birthday cake for my partner. I spent ages decorating it then I carried it in to him in triumph and promptly dropped it on the floor!
