About this Cook
I am suprised everyday that I am fifty, have two young children 9 and 11 and would never have believed that my life would turn out this way. But I love it. I love my husband who is a genius marine engineer and loves my cooking. My life is messy, unpredictable and busy, just the way it should be. I wish we had more money though :)
My favorite things to cook
I like to make my family's faves. Shortbread cookies, spicy oven BBQd chicken wings, pizza, muffins, curry and chilli, and any fish that is available.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Everybody loves a homebaked Victoria Sponge on their birthdays and traditional "black cake" on Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
Made a Grenadian dish, 'Oil Down' which is made with breadfruit and coconut milk and is one of my husband's faves, it came out just right even though I had never seen it or tasted it before then.
My cooking tragedies
There have been many, I scrape them into the bin and forget about it. Move on to something else and try again another day.

Cindy's Jambalaya
OK, this recipe is a hit in our house. We are Antiguan and have many West Indian dishes a little similar in prep, but made with fish or chicken, goat meat, etc. The whole family liked it.

Orange Herb Roasted Chicken
Good recipe. Easy and fairly quick to prepare. My daughter, who doesn't like anything good for her, really went to town on it, especially the gravy from the chicken juice. Next time, I will peel the oranges.
