About this Cook
Learned to cook when I got married years ago could not even cook rice back then. Now four kids later still cooking and very interested in AR gives me new ideas.
My favorite things to cook
Anything that is quick and easy since I also work fulltime. I leave the longer time consuming ones for the weekend. Prefer baking casseroles or any main dish since this gives me time once in the oven. Also like to make desserts for home and recently freshly baked bread.
My favorite family cooking traditions
A full spread for Sunday lunch is the tradition in my country and my family look foward to this. Christmas when the family gets together and there is quite a lot of food. A few years ago I took over the cooking since my Mom got ill. She still does the turkey though I do the sides and dessert. Began baking with my youngest as a pastime together maybe a new tradition.
My cooking triumphs
My first son's birthday cake which really came out well and I was still learning my way around the kitchen. There have been many since, then I guess just having lunch (the main meal in my country)on the table and hear it was good is triumph enough.
My cooking tragedies
Oh yeah my first few months of learning to cook I tried to "fry" rice that spit all over the floor and on me and most recently the corn pie I tried from AR. The dish broke in the oven and everything went all over the oven. Not sure what happened yet.

Sweet and Sour Chicken Tenders
So I did not fry the chicken just made the sauce and poured it over the chicken to bake. It was to runny so next time will add cornstarch to thicken first. Realised the chicken rolled in cornstarch would have thickened the sauce.

Banana Crumb Muffins
Had lots of bananas on hand so made a double batch minus the crumb. They came out very well almost forgot to add the sugar dumped in at the end and all was ok. Used for single recipe 4bananas since mine were a bit small 1tsp vanilla, in the wet batter and 1tsp cinnamon to the dry ingredients. Oil instead of melted butter to save time. For a double batch got 12 medium muffins and 6 jumbo ones. Great recipe.
