About this Cook
I've only developed a real interest in experimenting with food over the last few years - once my children left home and I was able to explore different tastes and textures. I have an allergy to (of all things) onions so I need to get creative with flavours to compensate.
My favorite things to cook
I have a diverse interest in things that I cook. I like taking 'old favorites' and experimenting to either change the flavour or make it healthy version.

Coconut Cream Pie
Coconut Cream is one of my husband's favorites .. well really ANY kind of pie is his favorite LOL .. In the past I have had difficulty getting custard like pies to thicken and set - I was pleased when this one was a success. I used 2 cups of coconut milk and 1 of skim and toasted old fashioned unsweetened thick shred coconut - saving some for the top ... this will be a recipe I will use a LOT! Next time I think I will cut back just a little on the sugar and maybe make a small one with Splenda for my mom who is diabetic.

The Best Steak Marinade
I used balsamic vinegar and left out the salt (figured soy sauce and worchester would be salty enough and I was right) I added a little lime juice and chili paste because we like a bit of tang and heat. I also added tsp of smokey hungarian paprika for a little extra smoke .. the marinade tastes good by itself - the steaks are marinating now and I'm looking forward to eating them later.

Creme Brulee
I recently had creme brulee on a trip and so wanted to make it when I got home. I scoured the net for what sounded like an easy recipe and finally found this one. I took the suggestions of Chef and did not use the double boiler. This being my first time making creme brulee I was a bit hesitant to make substitutions but to cut the calories I used fat free half and half instead of heavy cream. It didn't compromise the texture or flavour at all - I was so pleased. I will definitely make this again!
