About this Cook
Hi, I live in a busy home with my husband and our blended family of 4 boys aged 9 to 18. I work full time as a nurse.
My favorite things to cook
Sunday roasts, Indian curries and asian soups.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love everything about Sunday dinners. I love the preparation, the smell of the roast, the busy kitchen, and finally the table filled with my loved ones.
My cooking triumphs
I make the best soups.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I made gravy, it came out very lumpy so I decided to strain out the lumps. I muddled up and poured all the gravy down the drain, leaving me with just the lumps. Despite what the local grocer thinks, scotch bonnet peppers can not be used instead of chili peppers. I think I saw smoke coming out of the mouths of my family.

Creamy Spinach Soup
This was far too rich and salty for my palate. 3 cups of half and half?
