About this Cook
I am a true Creole girl misplaced and now experiencing the UK and Europe. I had to come all the way to England to find my prince and have not looked back. I miss home but I have a true love and appreciation for this beautiful country and its many cuisine influences. My hubby and I are in the proces of opening the very FIRST and only true Creole/Cajun cafe in Cheshire.
My favorite things to cook
Creole, Cajun, olde English, and Southern comfort food. I love to bake and experiment with new cuisines.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up learning to cook at the elbow and underfoot of my great grammie, grandmother, and mother. They were and are all fabulous cooks. My auntie owned a B&B in New Orleans and I learned all my best tricks from her in entertaining.
My cooking triumphs
I enjoy seeing people gorge themselves on good homecooked food and m best triumphs are seeing my British hubby and all his friends and family experience and enjoy new dishes and flavors.
My cooking tragedies
Fudge.....sometimes it comes out, sometimes it doesn't.

Boston Cream Pie II
I have tried so many recipes off this site and always ben pleased even though I may have had to weak things to my taste....however, this was the WORST cake I have ever had. I can't find one redeeming point about this recipe. The cake is very bland and very heavy and dense. The custard also has no taste and was very difficult to set. I had to add another egg and used Irish Cream to flavor the custard to make it nice. The chocolate glaze is entirely too much, cut down the chocolate a bit or better yet, use the Caroline's Fudge Frosting recipe. All in all, when one has to change a recipe so much that you are combing three different recipes, you can no longer rate it as good. I've never given any recipe bad reviews but this one just needs so much more work.

Hot Fudge Pudding Cake III
Very nice recipe! I added a 1/2 tsp of vanilla, 1/2 cup of copped nuts, and 1/2 cup of shredded dried coconut to the cake batter. It was like an almond joy candy bar type taste.Served it with vanilla ice cream and drizzled the chocolate sauce over the ice cream, really looked lovely. Next time I will reduce the liquid to 1 1/3c and likely make a cup of that liquid coffee.

Maids of Honor Tarts I
I made these for a church bake sale and they were a fabulous hit! Amazing taste, I used raspberry jam, blueberry jam, and even lemon curd. All versions were just great.
