About this Cook
I love experimenting with cooking and trying new recipes, new products and new ingredients. I like to add lots of color to the food I cook. I also try to get lots of fruit and vegetables into the dishes my children are eating. My kids are my guinea-pigs with all the new recipes I find on this website. I've had so much fun trying out recipes on and then taking photos of them, and sometimes reviewing as well.
My cooking tragedies
Cooking an egg in its shell in the microwave = cooking fail!

Avocado, Beet and Arugula Salad with Chevre Tartine
Really lovely salad! I used toasted pine nuts instead of hazelnuts. Can be served up with all sorts of other things to keep it interested. I put some smoked salmon and cherry tomatoes on the plate with it. It looked and tasted really great!

Black Pepper Beef and Cabbage Stir Fry
It was a good combination of ingredients and pretty quick and easy to make. However, I made it exactly to the recipe and to be honest it was a bit boring. I would have enjoyed it a bit more with some more interesting flavors. It did all get eaten so it wasn't a bad recipe, just not very exciting.

Quick Sesame Green Beans
Really good. I have to say I didn't follow exactly though. Instead I used CdIP's review idea of leaving out the miso paste and adding sesame oil, so I guess in this case it's not a true review of the recipe. Anyway, it was really enjoyed by everyone!
