About this Cook
Cooking is my favourite pastime - apart from reading about cooking! On my days off I get up thinking 'what can I cook today?' - sad muppet really.........
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake nice things for my family. We don't buy processed cakes or biscuits as I've taught my kids to make their own. We also love curries served with chutneys which we've made from the wild stuff we gather here in France.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love cooking with my two girls and their friends - everyone comes round and I lay out all the ingredients, then we make pizza bases and they all add their own toppings. I think kids need to be given an interest in cooking and the best way to do this is to teach them to make things they like to eat. My young daughters are very capable cooks already!
My cooking tragedies
Tried a 'Trade me Chocolate Cupcake' recipe last week and had to dump the whole batch :( not sure if American tastes are the same as ours!

Overnight Caramel Pecan Rolls
These are to DIE for! However, they should come with the warning to use a high sided baking tray - I used swiss roll tins and my caramel bubbled up over the sides, dripped onto the bottom of the oven and filled the kitchen with burnt sugar scented smoke. However, even that was not enough to stop us polishing off two of these babies each, hot out of the oven! I got 32 rolls out of the recipe, which is a nice big amount, enough to share with the neighbours. Definitely the best rolls I have come across - I would give them more stars if possible - thanks for the recipe ERIBERRY!

Baklava
Scrumptious! I can only find 250g packs of Phyllo over here so I just made this in a loaf tin and it turned out beautifully. The better the honey, the stronger the honey flavour in this - I'm going to try maple syrup next time.

Plastic Chocolate
I couldn't get this to work properly - the white chocolate version was far too runny and the dark one was too solid! Found it very difficult to work with - I did perservere and it turned out ok in the end but I was afraid of the chocolate roses melting on the cake.
