About this Cook
I am a student, recently moved from the UK to the US and am discovering a wealth of culinary differences between the two places!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake cakes and cookies. I also like making pies and other British dishes. Since moving to the US I have been experimenting more with Mexican food, and as winter is approaching making soup too. My favorite main course is lasagna.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mum makes a great Mexican style lasagna with tortillas, which I enjoy making too, and she was the one who taught me to bake. My uncle is a very experimental cook, so I try and take after him that way, but I could never be as good!
My cooking triumphs
I recently started using pumpkin to cook with (not an ingredient I am familiar with really) and discovered a great pumpkin and chocolate chip cake - cake baking and traditional dishes tend to be my strong points.
My cooking tragedies
Things often go wrong when I am in the kitchen, but I don't think there have been very many tragedies per se....

Sweet Potato Oranges
I made these a while ago for a dinner party but forgot to review. These were simple to make, and very delicious. Definitely a hit!

Barbequed Ribs
I made this with chicken thighs rather than ribs, as we are not huge fans of ribs, and it was delicious. The dipping sauce/ marinade is great: spicy, sweet and sour all at the same time.

Peanut Butter Pie
Someone made this for me the other day, but mixed the cream layer into the mix rather than on the top. It was delicious, but I could defiantly only eat one slice! The only other improvement that she made was using a base made of crushed oreos, bound with egg and then baked for 5 minutes. Yum!
