About this Cook
I am a stay at home Mum to two children. I work part time from home for a farm that offers a fabulous Community Supported Agriculture program and have my diploma in the Culinary Arts...so it's safe to say that I love food and everything to do with it!!
My favorite things to cook
Lately I have been doing lots of canning to preserve all the delicious organic produce from my CSA box, but I love to cook Indian and Mexican food as my Husband and children love foods from these countries! Otherwise I enjoy using my slow cooker in the winter months.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is British and although they aren't know for their culinary prowess, I do enjoy my mother's cottage pie and Cornish pasties...not to mention clotted cream on scones with fresh preserves!!!
My cooking triumphs
Not to toot my own horn, but I haven't had too many tragedies - I did a beautiful crown pork roast with an apricot brandy glaze and stuffing that was fantastic once and I am always complimented on my various salads and soups.
My cooking tragedies
I have learned that the jalapenos that I get from the farm are MUCH hotter than the ones in the grocery store! Last year I was making "Salsa Verde" with the tomatillos and jalapenos from my CSA box and added the correct amount, but it was incredibly hot!! I just mixed it with another batch that had less jalapenos and it was much more palatable!!!

Curry Chicken Casserole
We tried this recipe tonight as we are all big Thai and Indian fans - unfortunately none of us really enjoyed this. It has too much sauce (perhaps it would be better with a lot of rice?), and none of us really liked the addition of cheese (not a traditional curry ingredient!).
