About this Cook
I'm a primary school teacher who loves to cook and bake as a wind down. I started baking as a child, after my mum's declaration that she didn't like to bake. From then on, it was my job to supply the goodies for the holidays or when a cookie craving came on. Eventually I ventured from my beloved kitchen-aid mixer to the stove and am attempting to learn to cook like the ladies of my family.
My favorite things to cook
French Onion Soup, Risotto, Ina Garten's Chicken Pot Pie, Baked Potato Soup White Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies, Shortbread....to be continued.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Christmas I make Almond Crescent Cookies because I can't remember a Christmas without them.
My cooking triumphs
For my parents 25th wedding anniversary I cooked a plated 4 course meal for 30 people. I had never attempted to cook for more than 4 people before that, so it was a bit of a project.
My cooking tragedies
Lime Cookies....ick.

Waffles I
I recently bought myself a waffle maker and was searching for an easy recipe. I was very pleased with how the waffles turned out. They were light and crispy on the outside. They smell heavenly with the addition of the vanilla. Next time I think I'll add a bit more sugar as I like the taste of a sweeter waffle since I don't use any syrup. Served with strawberries and icing sugar, they are quite a show stopper on the breakfast table!

Potato Leek Soup III
An easy yummy soup! I added some butter garlic croutons on top for a bit of a crunch. I will gladly make this soup again!

Gourmet Mushroom Risotto
Fantastic! I've been making risotto for several years but I've never made a risotto like the Gourmet Mushroom Risotto! This recipe is a keeper!
