About this Cook
I am a mother of four and soon to be a grandmother. I teach high school nad in my spare time I love to watch movies, knit and improve my home. I still love to learn new things so improving my cooking skills is a great way to do this.
My favorite things to cook
I like to experiment with new ingredients and recipes. I am experienced enough to try different quantities and ingredients in recipes. I hate the everyday humdrum cooking and am continually looking for quick and easy new things to make it less tedious.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our family is far flung and when we get together I plan our meals carefully trying to include everyone's favourites where possible. We have traditions of huge family barbecue breakfasts and special birthdays, engagements etc are feasts.
My cooking triumphs
Large family celebrations. I always include favourites and something new and exciting.
My cooking tragedies
Some weekday dinners where I am not concentrating tend to get very crisp and inedible!!I did stress I hate everyday cooking.
Recipe Reviews 1 review
Aioli (Garlic Mayonnaise)
Tweaked by less oil (about half),double the dijon and garlic, used lime juice and seasoned with salt, cracked pepper and a couple of pinches of sugar just to balance the taste. Fabulous consistency even hand whisked. Everyone loved it, used as a dip and a salad dressing.
