About this Cook
Im a mother of 4 grown sons, grandmother to three.Have always loved cooking-recently finding it more challenging due to special dietary needs in the family.Now two of us on gluten free diet-quite a learning curve for me -especially making bread! Still, the physical results of better health make it all worthwhile!
My favorite things to cook
Roasts, soups, stews in winter.I love baking cakes, biscuits, cheesecakes - but do less of this with watching the calories -more used now for special occasions! Love the challenge of substitutions, and economising! Rewarding!Enjoying adapting to cooking basic meals on my new wood fired cooktop!
My cooking triumphs
A chicken lasagna, low fat 'rich' fruit cake,all types of soup,casseroles,roast meals.
My cooking tragedies
Bread & cakes mad ewithout gluten/dairy- rarely had failures in any cooking until changing the grains.Any advice gratefully received! Gradually 'getting there! It's experience that wins the day!
