About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
My no bake tiramisu since I can't seem to find a decent store bought tiramisu anywhere (maybe I'm just picky but I've been told that mine tastes better).
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mum never really cooked with us kids ,but I learned from my aunts all these nice italian deserts (tiramisu, rosettes, zeppole, guanti etc..).I try to make some when I have free time.
My cooking triumphs
I must say it's baking a heart shaped genoise from scratch to make my tiramisu cake for my sister-in-law's 28th bday. It worked out so nicely after decorating it and looked so professional that I had to take a picture of it.
My cooking tragedies
Baking pastry items is my big trouble.I have a 50/50 chance of success but I always try again.Won't set me back too much.

Chicken with Peanut Curry Yogurt Sauce
As is the recipe needs extra flavour but it is very easy to tweak to your taste so that is why it gets 3 stars. My family enjoyed it with slight alterations, it was fast enough to do for a busy weeknight meal and was very filling. I added extra garlic and some red curry paste . It also needed a splash of milk to thin out the sauce just because my all natural creamy peanut butter was far too thick.

Cherry Ice Cream
I used lactose free heavy creme for the milk and heavy creme portions, lactose free 3% greek yogurt since we prefer a creamier Ice cream. Didn't know what cherry concentrate was but prefer homemade ingredients in ice cream so I made a cherry syrup with real cherries,water and sugar. Worked nicely and I found the end result was more light like yogurt ice cream and sorbet then rich traditional ice cream. I will make again

Coconut Rice
Best tasting basmati rice I have made. Looks like plain rice but has a nice buttery nutty taste. Went well with some honey hoisin pork chops :-)
