About this Cook
I love to eat so cooking is essential. I enjoy trying new recipes and experimenting with different ingredients. We entertain alot and are never happpier than when the kitchen table is surrounded by friends enjoying a good meal.
My favorite things to cook
Traditional roast dinners, funky stir frys, curry.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Setting the dining room table with "the good stuff" at all family birthdays and anniversaries or even for good report cards! Any excuse for a celebration!
My cooking triumphs
Banoffi pie-recipe given to me by a good friend in Scotland. Rhubarb custard squares which people have fought over.
My cooking tragedies
A terrible cheese fondue that went horribly wrong many years ago but is still talked about.

High Temperature Eye-of-Round Roast
This really does turn an inexpensive roast into a gourmet dinner. Make some Yorkshire puddings and roast potatoes whilst the meat rests and you have a meal to please just about everyone.

Creamy Rice Pudding
I made this with rice milk, no butter and it turned out creamy and delicious. As someone on a fairly restricted diet it is wonderful to have some comfort food. Thanks for a recipe I'll make again.

Honey Nut Granola
Love this and keep making more. I use cashews instead of pecans and add mixed seeds such as pumkin and flax as well as soy nuts. As other reviewers have done I skipped the oil and used applesauce and increased the honey.
