About this Cook
I love to cook for my family and friends. I moved from Florida to Sydney, Australia June of 2007, and have 2 adorable and toddler boys.
My favorite things to cook
My mom and grandmother's recipes. Anything new that sounds interesting and delicious.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to cook with my kids. We make zucchini bread, guacamole, cookies, quesadillas-- anything that includes them being able to mix and scoop stuff.
My cooking triumphs
Just started baking last year, and I've started to enjoy it.
My cooking tragedies
I cannot make chocolate chip cookies, they always come out extremely flat and something is definitely wrong. Other cookies don't seem to be a problem.

Barley Bake
This was so good. Didn't use nuts or mushrooms, but added carrots when I sauteed the onions, and frozen corn before putting in the oven. We loved it.

David's Yellow Cake
I took the advice and just used regular all purpose flour and 8 whole eggs instead of only the yolks. I made 24 regular sized cupcakes with this recipe, and they came out so good. I can see why some people would say they are cornbread-esque. But they are a big-crumbed yellow cake, very delicious-- but if you are looking for a fine crumb or something light and airy this isn't it. This is a dense, moist yellow cake. It's exactly what I was looking for! Thanks!

Mary's Meatloaf
This is seriously the best meatloaf ever. My kids and husband loved it. I used breadcrumbs instead of fresh bread and baked it on convection (fan) on 175C for an hour. Awesome.
