About this Cook
My grandmother was a pastry cook and always made beautiful cakes & desserts. My mother and aunts are good cooks too. I like to think I am as good as they are, never had any complaints yet... lol.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts esp Lemon Meringue Pie, Trifle and cakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The whole family make rissoles the same way. Christmas dinner is always the same... roast turkey with stuffing, ham, roast vegetables, peas, carrot and gravy followed by Christmas pudding and custard.
My cooking triumphs
All the lemon meringue pie is always eaten when I take it to family functions. Anything new I cook the kids that the really like.
My cooking tragedies
There has been some. I cannot remember off hand.

Breakfast Treat
Made for the children for breakfast for a change. 2 out of 3 kids loved it. The egg was light and fluffy. Next time I will use grated cheese and add some leek or onion and capsicum or even try diced chicken. I enjoyed it too.

Shrimp and Asparagus
I made this dish last night following the ingredients except I didn't have any parmesan cheese. I cut the asparagus into smaller bits before steaming above the cooking pasta. I always heavily season with rock salt and ground pepper. Absolutely loved it. Will make sure to have the parmesan next time and will add some leek, maybe a small amount of fresh chilli.
