Me & my little "Punkins"
About this Cook
I'm a knitter who has very little time to knit and gourmet chef who can't afford the gourmet!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake--scones, tea bread, muffins and cookies. And if I had more time (and my kids would eat it) I'd serve my family Indian meals at least 3x a week!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom taught me how to make Toffee Bars when I was about 10 years old--and that was just the beginning.
My cooking triumphs
They laughed when I brought stuffing to a 4th of July potluck/picnic, but guess who's pot was empty!
My cooking tragedies
I have the bad habit of trying new recipes when we're having guests over for dinner.

Sweet and Spicy Sweet Potatoes
Loved this recipe. My kids ate the leftovers cold the next morning. That's how good they are.

Spiced Yogurt Pound Cake
Loved this cake made as a bundt following Baricat's recommendations. Spot on! Guests loved it too and requested the recipe.

Playgroup Granola Bars
Yep, we loved this recipe and it's now a family staple. I always decrease the brown sugar to 1/2 cup and I've tried several variations--substituting golden syrup (an Aussie thing) for honey, chopped peanuts & coconut or chocolate chips & coconut for the raisins. Whatever I can find at the time. They're always good!
