About this Cook
A food blogger, recipe writer, baker and lover of all things healthy and fresh. I grow my own vegetables which give us a ton of joy in the summer months! Check my blog at yummysmells.blogspot.com
My favorite things to cook
Anything spicy, breads (especially sourdough), cakes, cookies, muffins, gifts for others.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Autumn: apple pie and crisps; Christmas: chocolate chip cookies, shortbread cookies, filled brioches and Challah bread.
My cooking triumphs
I once made a chocolate souffle that stayed up! My sourdough boules are fantastic and I make a mean tofu-based (!) chocolate chip cookie that rival's mom's!
My cooking tragedies
Making a dark brown bread that used lots of food colouring and turned out green cause I forgot to add the red. My own 20th birthday cake never baked - it turned into a pan of grey sludge that I had to scrape into the sink.

Easy Broccoli Salad
I loved this, but only found I needed 1 tbsp of oil. 1/3 cup is far too much

Black Bean Brownies
These were okay as written (more like cake though), but our family liked them way better with 1 less egg, 1/3 cup cocoa and 1/2 cup dark brown sugar. More "brownie like" that way. The coffee is a great addition!

Garlic Chicken Breasts
This was okay, but I didn't really taste the garlic. Might double it next time and see
