I love baking bread and cakes.
My cooking triumphs
My cooking tragedies
I have trouble making chicken breast taste good. I usually use thighs, legs or roast a whole chicken....but the skinless breasts I make are unfortunately bland.

Grilled Salmon I
I really like this recipe - I already have been using it for a variety of meats on the grill. i'M giving it 5 stars even though I made quite a few changes, just because its a good starting point for your own additions. I added lemon zest and some lemon juice to the marinade, as well as one tsp of sesame oil, minced garlic and finely grated ginger. I used spring salmon fillets and marinated for 6 hours in the fridge, and then baked the fish in a hot over, in a foil wrapped dish. I also didn't drain the marinade, nothing wrong with pouring a bit in the baking dish to give it moisture. It really came out moist and flavourful.

Italian Cream Cheese and Ricotta Cheesecake
I enjoyed the flavour of this cheesecake, but the texture was a little bit too dense for what I was looking for. I thought having the ricotta would make for a lighter cake. I got rave reviews from my guests. Next time I think the temperature should be lower - maybe 325. I got a deeply cracked top and slightly browned edges, but not enough to affect the flavour - I trimmed the golden brown edges anyway, and covered in cherry sauce with whipped cream, so no one could tell.

Spanakopita II
My guests really enjoyed this appetizer. The feta cheese is pretty salty so next time I'll omit adding any extra salt to the spinach mixture.
