About this Cook
I now live on my own and therefore cook a lot less than I used to, but I still love it! I am an artist at heart and my style of cooking reflects that; sometimes it becomes a mess and a masterpiece at other times.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook anything with zest, however, I am not an aficionado of Mexican or Indian cooking. Nor do I much care for the barbecue. I love fish but am finding meat and vegetables easier to handle. Baking I tend to leave to others.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I came from a home where food was important and this still lives with me. I consider cooking to be a creative hobby; for some even an art (not me; I am no longer good enough!).
My cooking triumphs
4 course dinners in Scotland for foreign guests.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to mention!

Easy Chicken Cutlets with Apples
The flavor is good enough but the chicken would have been much better IF it had been salted immediately before cooking (the salt makes the juices run out of the meat). As soon as these leaf thin meat slices have been cooked in butter, they are ready and any cooking after that only serves to make them tough and dry. Keep warm for as short a time as possible while the pan is deglazed with the sherry etc. I also find the dish too sweet, omit the white sugar.

Chili I
This is first class. The only alteration I would make is using a little less beer and a little less garlic. It is otherwise superb.

Pork Chops with Tomatoes and String Beans
I did not care for this recipe. The beans were overly salty and the pork chops were tough. If I ever were to make this again (and I might as I have all of the other ingredients in the garden this month), I would use far higher oven temperature and cook the dish for a much shorter time. That might work but I am not sure as the flavors then will have too little time to blend.
