About this Cook
Hi. I am an interior designer in Kwa-zulu Natal, and I love cooking. My favourite thing to make is a new recipe and I vary my cooking as much as possible. I have had few cooking disasters, thankfully! But I have much to learn :) always room for improvement..
My favorite things to cook
Stir-fries and chicken dishes.
My cooking triumphs
My stir-fries always come out nice.

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls
This was amazing. They looked great and tasted even better. I set the cut rolls in an oven tray lined with foil, sprayed with cooking spray. I had no problems with butter/sugar mix oozing out. I also had no problems removing the rolls from the foil after baking. The one thing I did differently was to use butter instead of margarine. That took it up a notch in flavour. I used raisins and it was just heavenly. Thanks for a great recipe!

Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies
very very yummm! I couldn't wait till these had cooled, they smelled divine in the oven, and tasted even better. Followed the recipe exactly, no changes needed. Perfect as is....and highly addictive. I didn't drop spoonsful onto the baking sheet but rather made a rough lump in my hand and flattened slightly for each cookie. Took them out the oven at about 15mins, centre slightly chewy and just right!

Favorite Barbecue Chicken
This was a really nice bbq sauce/ sweet-sour sauce. Shakespeare said "a rose by any name would smell as sweet"! Doesn't matter what you call it, it tastes good, and a definite keeper. Some slight changes i made: I used soy sauce instead of Worcestershire sauce (because I didn't have any of the latter) and regular white spirit vinegar and a dash of brown vinegar, because that's what I had. I also added a Tbsp of bbq sauce in a bottle, it was the last dollop left so I didn't want it to waste, but it made a good difference. All else stayed the same. I marinated chicken breasts for half an hour, pan fried them and simmered with the sauce. It was lovely and saucy. Good recipe!
