Our wedding day
About this Cook
Married, two daughters, two cats, husband and I are both food lovers and will try anything - even snails!
My favorite things to cook
Fast, tasty food, especially spicy food. I make a mean chilli that always has people coming back for seconds :-)
My favorite family cooking traditions
All my husband's - tomato & onion salad; cinnamon bread, garlic & rosemary roast potatoes; poached eggs.
My cooking triumphs
Curries, chili's, soup and Thai food.
My cooking tragedies
My first ever chocolate cake that I made when I was 15 - we had to cut it with a bread knife! And a roasted tomato & red pepper soup that took me 90 minutes to make and was not half as nice as my own 20 minute recipe!

Delicious Chocolate Cornflake Cakes
Super easy recipe to do with the kids. We have done both large muffin size (see photo with sprinkles) and mini cupcake size. I recommend using a bain-marie for the chocolate sauce. I reduced the butter content and increased the cornflakes on the second go as following the exact recipe made it overly rich for kiddies. Using a good quality chocolate, some high fiber 7 grain flakes or similar and adding sprinkles takes these to the next level. Serve chilled. Golden Syrup can be bought anywhere that stocks British or Irish foods, it comes in a green can with a lion on the front. Totally makes the recipe, do try and get hold of some!

Catherine's Spicy Chicken Soup
No need to add salt at all as far as flavour is concerned. Use no salt added tomatoes and I omitted the condensed soup for the same reason, although it needed longer cooking to reduce down, was a bit watery at first. Very tasty.

West African Peanut Soup
Tasty, filling, unusual soup that was devoured by my in-laws, much to my surprise! I added chicken, which made it a full meal. Add the brown rice earlier if it usually takes 40 minutes to cook, or if its a ten minute Uncle Bens version, use the recipe. I used tinned tomatoes with chilli already in it to kick up the heat, and organic crunchy peanut butter added to taste at the end. Would recommend take some hot soup out and mixing it with the peanut butter as a paste, or you will end up chasing spoons of it around the pan tying to get it to blend! Already made it again.
