Christian. Extremely sweet tooth. Seven cats, one hubby, no kids. Generally psychotic sense of humour.
My favorite things to cook
Oh baby! Anything sweet, particularly sweet and gooey. Or anything with meat. Or cheese. Or meat AND cheese. (I have yet to invent a combination of pudding, meat and cheese. Which is probably for the best.)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Nana's sunday roasts.
My cooking triumphs
The huge pudding party I was asked to do for my friends. I made all these desserts and they all worked out. And I invented this pie with marshmallows, custard, tinned boysenberries and chocolate sauce and they all loved it and said it was their favourite!
My cooking tragedies
The omelet that my friend and I decided to flavour with allspice, cinnamon and oregano. I can almost still taste it.
The icing that I tried to flavour but the only thing I had on hand was imitation lemon/ lime juice. The time I tried to make pancakes but didn't have any regular flour so I tried to substitute cornflour thinking it was pretty much the same thing. Then I added cocoa to make them chocolate pancakes.
And the orange valencia pie that curdled. But not until the second day so it was after I had given it to the person and when they were trying to serve it to their friends at a book review evening! I was mortified!
