Greetings, all! I am a full-time working single mom. Cooking is a passion for me, but the greatest barrier is time and energy. I'm a domestic goddess kind of girl, but given that I am a walking DIY (disaster-it-yourself) my home rarely looks heavenly!
My favorite things to cook
The Christmas season is when I can really let me inner baker go wild and crazy - I make dozens upon dozens of treats to box up and give to everyone. My other main cooking focus is massive portion meals that I can divide into tin containers and freeze for easy meals during the week.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The most long-standing family tradition is the classic English roast beef dinner. And turkey dinners too.
My cooking triumphs
Perfecting a replication of the "two bite brownie" through extensive trial and error; coveted and kept the recipe close to my chest!
My cooking tragedies
Obliging when a friend asked for my brownie recipe, only to discover that she passed it off as her own when she needed one for a recipe exchange!
