About this Cook
I love cooking, and eating what i make! I make as much from scratch as i can, from pies to fish fingers. I love fresh fish and am always looking for recipes to try to make fish more interesting.
My favorite things to cook
I love making bread, especially Jo's Rosemary Bread. I enjoy making savory meals, and love pie. Making meals with left overs is always a challenge for me, so am always looking for new ideas for this.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I don't really have any traditions. My daughter helps in the kitchen when we bake, and loves getting right in there. She also loves licking the spoon after we've made cakes!!
My cooking triumphs
I made Piccalilli for the first time and it came out amazing, just like we have here in England.
My cooking tragedies
I made a chocolate cake for one of the guys at work birthday. It happened to be on the hottest day of the year and so melted in the car on the way to work in the morning. My boss told me it looked like elephant poo :-( i was really upset, it took me ages to make!

Connie's Zucchini "Crab" Cakes
This was really wet and could have done with being salted and drained. I couldn't dredge it in flour because it was so wet, so I just dropped the batter into the pan- with spray olive oil. They were ok. They didn't taste like crab but my daughter loved them

Baked Ziti I
I don't think you can get provolone cheese in the uk, I did look everywhere but in the end I substituted German smoked cheese. It was so delicious that we all had seconds and are looking forward to having it again tonight!! Yummy :-)

Fantastic! Flooowed the recipe to a T (except cream) and it was delicious! In the uk we dont have half snd half, so I used double cream. I made this again tonight but with chicken and it was just as good
