About this Cook
I'm a part time receptionist and a wife to my wonderful husband of 5 years and mum to my one year old little boy. I've recently lost 3 stone (42lb's) and now always try to cook from scratch to make me work harder for my calories and ensure we eat healthy family meals.
My favorite things to cook
Traditional English foods....sausage casserole, pies, pasta bakes, soups and stews. You name it and I probably love it. I also love to bake.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas puddings, my mum's jam and my gran's vegetable soup with barley.
My cooking triumphs
Anything rich and flavourful....I love almost everything I slow-cook.
My cooking tragedies
Not really sure...I don't think anythings gone that wrong.

English Flapjack
Not a bad taste, but not quite what I was looking for. I added less oats because of the comments, and that def. helped make them stick together.
