About this Cook
I learnt to cook when I was tiny, watching my parents and trying to help out. I was the family omelette maker by the time I was 11. Have loved it ever since and I love to try out and learn new things. Cooking, for me, is a way of showing love and nurturing those you care for.
My favorite things to cook
Good, hearty food like stews, soups and casseroles. The kind you eat when it's raining so hard you can't hear yourself think. Love to make finger foods and anything that tastes great or makes people ask for the recipe.
My favorite family cooking traditions
On Fat Tuesday (Shrove Tuesday in Britain) we always have pancakes, crepe style. All we put on them is sugar and lemon juice. My Dad taught me how to flip them perfectly. Look Ma! No Spatula!
My cooking triumphs
The first time I made Chicken Cordon Bleu it was perfect and I was so proud of myself, I was not expecting that! Being able to make 'Southern' food that is as good as some southern cooks.
My cooking tragedies
A chicken casserole that tasted revolting, still can't make Beef Wellington even though I have the family recipe. Can't find the time to make Sushi and I love Sushi. Oh, and everytime I make broccoli casserole something goes horribly wrong...or maybe I just don't like broccoli casserole.

Baked Maryland Lump Crab Cakes
I'll start out by saying that I have never had a genuine Maryland Crabcake so keep that in mind but these turned out awesome. I didn't use breadcrumbs, I used saltines, and I used an 8oz jar of lump and another of claw meat and one egg instead of the substitute but other than that I stuck to the recipe. My husband and I were so pleasantly surprised that we ended up eating all of them between the two of us. Thank you so much for a really easy and great tasting recipe.

Perfect Sesame Chicken
This is one of my husband's favorite dishes. The coating for the chicken is wonderful and I find myself picking at the chicken pieces before I even get dinner plated.

Mashed Potato Quesadilla
I love these! Very easy, very quick and they work well for someone who ends up eating alone a lot and also has a husband who REFUSES to eat leftovers. I think I made these three or four times in the first week after I read the recipe.
