About this Cook
Mum of 3 young kids aged 7,4 and 2yrs and developing my own cake company.
My favorite things to cook
Stir frys, roasts (particularly lamb or pork), lasagne and I make an excellent chocolate fudge cake... I've never enjoyed cooking as much as baking and I am more of a novice in the cooking department. My husband always did the cooking when we were first married, but as long as I can remember I have baked. And loved it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Well growing up I always 'helped' my mum when she was baking. My love of baking came from her and my grandmother who always had plenty of treats and slices from the Australian Womans Weekly Biscuits and Slices book in storage for her hoards of hungry grandchildren!
My cooking triumphs
My various cakes which I have started selling
My cooking tragedies
Grilling a chocolate cake 3 times before I realised the oven was on the grill setting. I blamed being pregnant on that one though...

Norwegian Hazelnut Cake
Fantastic tasting cake and the texture is great. It makes a great dessert to impress guests with. I was all out of cream and had no way to get some, so I made a chocolate pate, sprinkled icing sugar on the cake and served it with the chocolate. Was still delicious. Thanks for this one!
