We have a small farm with my own chickens and sheep. We are'nt big meat eaters, so I get a lot out of growing my own vegetables and of course all the lovely fresh eggs. I tend to cook vegetarian meals at least a few times a week, and a lot of quick and easy dinners since we both work full time.
My favorite things to cook
When I have the time I love to bake. I'm not big into making full size cakes, even though i like to decorate them. I'd rather make small individual treats - cupcakes,muffins, cookies etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I think my sisters and I have all picked up on the baking side of things from our Grandmother, and then mum. Grandma would always have some yummy shortbread waiting for us, and homemade treats - even though she worked in one of New Zealands big cookie (we say biscuit) manufacturer's - she still loved to bake her own.
