About this Cook
Nik and I have been married for a couple years now, and we have worked together to find common interests in food and find great recipes through this website to share together and with friends.
My favorite things to cook
We love cooking complicated dishes to show off to company, but for the most part we eat healthy, simple meals for day to day eating.
My cooking triumphs
Niks feta garlic prawns. If she'll ever share the secret, we'll post it. To die for. I also make fantastic meatloaf and love cooking with beef, chicken and pork. (I'm a man.. what can I say?) We make all our own stocks from scratch and aren't afraid of cooking anything. I've made some amzing dishes, and also failed from time to time. To me, the fun is in the experimentation.
My cooking tragedies
My first, uneducated attempt at curried beef. First time using a slow cooker, first time making curry. It was so bad even dogs wouldn't eat it. A starving refugee would rather stay starving. It was that bad. Nik's been brilliant though, except for one nasty pizza which burned on the bottom bad before she got used to our tempermental oven.

Crusty Potato Bread
This is the best bread to ever come out of my bread machine. It works every time, easy and I have used it to make buns aswell. Great recipe! My bread machine actually gets used again!

French Toast Casserole
Unbelievably easy to make, and was a huge hit with the family. Many people asked for the recipe. I make this the day before and then bake it in the morning, so easy and feeds alot of people.

Quick and Easy Yorkshire Pudding
I loved these Yorkies. I was very suprised by how well they turned out, with only three ingredients. I thought they would need a leavener, but they did not. These looked beautiful, and tasted awesome. I smothered mine with homemade gravy and served with slow roasted roast beef. Everyone loved them. I did not change this recipe a bit. I did use salted butter and found the flavour to be awesome. We gobbled up the entire tray! Loved it! Thanks for a great recipe. I will use this again and again.
