About this Cook
I am a mother of 4 ranging in age from 8 to 20 and they all live at home. I have had as many as 9 houshold when fostering.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake and prepare attractive meals. I also like to make jam and preserves when time is available
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas cookies, Anzac biscuits, Hot cross buns on respective holidays. I love to bring food into family traditions.
My cooking triumphs
Best ever would be bulk baking of choc caramel slice and christmas tree cookies that look like they come from a boutique bakery.
My cooking tragedies
Trying to cook things too fast and burning them. Worst ever would be mistaking salt for castor(fine) sugar when making apple crumble. Not salvageable!!!

Slow-Cooker Barbecue Ribs
I had never made ribs before so I made this esxactly to the recepie and decided it was too hot for us and we don't mind food that is reasonably hot. Good idea that can be adapted to ones own liking.

Tasty Meat Pie
Didn't have tin of vege soup so I used packet soup and added 1/2 required water. I also added beef stock powder, peas, and a bottom crust. Everyone loved it.
