About this Cook
Mum of 2, wife of 1! I was born in Australia but I'm of Filipino/ Spanish descent. My parents moved to Oz in the early 70's. I am extremely fond of Filipino dishes especially the adobos, sinigangs and ube desserts. My husband is half Greek but unfortunately he wouldn't have a clue about Greek food!
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, cakes, desserts and all things sweet.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Vegetable lasagne, spaghetti bolognaise, arrozcaldo(chicken rice soup)
My cooking triumphs
I enjoy making Christmas gifts- shortbread, gingerbread etc.
My cooking tragedies
Thai beef salad, I thought the dressing was a marinade! The lemon in the dressing cooked the beef before I had a chance to- yuck!

German Apple Cake I
What a delicious cake. I used 3/4 cup of applesauce and 1/4 cup oil in place of the cup of oil. I also cut the sugar to 1 cup for my diabetic mother and added 1 extra apple. Wow, it was excellent and devoured for afternoon tea. If this recipe makes 24 serves then I had about 5 serves in one sitting! I couldn't help myself. This has become a family favourite!

Banana Banana Bread
Wow! This was deeeelicious.My 4year old enjoyed mashing and sifting and mixing. We added plenty of cinnamon which gave it a good kick! I only had 1 egg left so it was slightly crumbly- it really needed 2!We also added some vanilla. A real winner in the 'cookiegirl' home.
