About this Cook
I'm an Australian living in the US with my 2 sons. Single working mum loving my new slow cooker!
My favorite things to cook
I'll try most things that involve using all natural/from scratch ingredients. Not into deep frying, dairy, high fat foods but unfortunately have a thing for Tex-Mex which pretty much always involves cheese and sour cream...so thanks to this website I've been able to find some great Mexican recipes without all the fat.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking with my kids - they love to help out in the kitchen and don't mind what it is we're making, as long as they get to try it when we're finished - and of course they love licking the bowl when we're baking! We usually bake together at least once every weekend.
My cooking triumphs
Always seems to be that the best dishes are the ones that are created out of desperation - using what's left in the back of the cupboard and bottom of the fridge - and of course I can never replicate them.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to list - undercooked chicked, grilled pastry (I know!), too much chilli, etc....

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast
Made it exactly as the recipe said but doubled it. Everyone from 4 year olds to adults loved it. Served it in toasted Panini bread, with the sauce that I separated the fat out of first.

Nana's Slow Cooked Meaty Tomato Sauce
Yum - also used it to make lasagne and it got raves from every kid in my neighborhood. Unlike a lot of other reviewers I added more ground beef as my kids like their sauce meaty, as well as sweet and spicy Italian sausages. Couldn't find fresh basil but dried was fine.

Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi
Fantastic, I loved it, kids loved it. Did as another reviewer suggested and baked for 15 minutes at 450, and it was perfect.
