My name is Sarah and I really love to cook. I am 21 years old and I learnt to cook from my mum, but I learnt to LOVE cooking from my grandma.
I will always remember learning to cook the Christmas puddung and cake every year in September from the time I was about 9. My other main interest is my three dogs, who I love to bits.
Allrecipes has been a great source of new and different recipes for me to WOW my parents with, although some of them are a bit TOO different or ask for ingredients that are really difficult to find in Melbourne.
My favorite things to cook
I absolutely love to cook risotto!! Also pasta and casseroles. The best recipe that I have done from this site is the Dijon Salmon and my favourite recipe to cook is Chicken Herb Risotto which I came up with from a basic saffron risotto recipe.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Most of the cooking traditions come from my dad's side of the family. My grandmother has some recipes that are getting on to 90 years old (the Christmas pudding for one), which came from her mother and grandmother.
My cooking triumphs
Anything that I cook out of the Women's Weekly recipe books and magazines is always a success with the family.
My cooking tragedies
All my tragedies are due to my own mistakes and have nothing to do with the recipe itself. Sometimes I forget to put in an ingredient or over cook it, nothing major or inedible.
