Love to eat and therefore love to cook! With all children grown and moved away, theres lots of time to persue all sorts of interesting hobbies. I used to own a telecommunications firm, but sold out in 2008. Now enjoying looking after my husband and my home and spending time on the beach.
My favorite things to cook
I love chicken and fish with white wine sauces. I love a roasted chicken, the aroma that eminates from the kitchen is irresistible. Sunday is meat day and during summer we grill steaks, but in the cooler months, we enjoy Roast Beef and Yorshire Pudding, done the authentic British way.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our tradition is that we don't have one, we like to experiment with new things, new types of cooking and ethnic foods. I once took a Thai Culinary class in Thailand.
My cooking triumphs
I think I would have to say it was a cake I made from Southern Living. It was featured on the cover of the Annual Recipe Book, I forget which year. It was a 5 layer Red Velvet, frosted with a white frosting. Since it was Christmas I decorated it with fresh mint leaves and sugared raspberries. It was the most beautiful cake I've ever seen, and oh! it tasted very good too!
My cooking tragedies
I recently used a recipe from this website to slow cook a London Broil. It was so bad we had to throw it away and order in Thai food. Was it me or the recipe? We'll never know for sure!!
