About this Cook
I'm a 23 year old wife and mother. I have been married for just over 3 years. My daughter's name is Jazmin and she is 18mths old. I am studying Natural Therapy by correspondence and I love scrapbooking. My husband Justin is a picky eater, but he is trying to change that.
My favorite things to cook
Easy, quick...or slow cooker that I can put on in the morning and have it ready at night when I want it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have a family Chocolate Self-Saucing pudding recipe - not sure if there is one similar on this site, but it goes down a treat every time.
My cooking triumphs
Christmas breakfast and lunch 2003 for the in-laws. I managed not to burn anything or swear about my cooking in front of them!
My cooking tragedies
One time I tried to make a lemon cake - it turned out burnt on the bottom and sloppy on top...my boyfriend (now husband, so it didn't scare him off!) put ice cream into the tin and ate it out of the tin!!! Oh and I frequently burn the toast, even when the setting is low!

Creamy Homemade Chicken Stew
I too had the problem of the milk separating. I didn't have any potatoes in either. It looked bland so I put a sachet of creamy chicken soup in which helped a bit, but I still had to "rescue" the meal by putting it in a pie dish and covering it with breadcrumbs and cheese. I don't think I will make this again.

Cheesy Tuna Mornay
My husband and I loved this recipe! We put a lot of extra cheese in it and over it - but that was just personal preference. Our 18 mth old hated it - we think it might be the texture which she hasn't had before - or it could just be typical toddler behaviour!! 5-star recipe, also easy to double or triple to make extra for freezing for those nights when you're too busy or too tired to cook. My husband says "It's Yum"

Braised Balsamic Chicken
My family and I found the balsamic vinegar too overpowering for the rest of the dish. If I were to make it again, I would use much less, if any at all.
