Anna's Chocolate Chip Cookies
About this Cook
My family's from the Fiji Islands. I've grown up with a taste for all types of foods. I've been cooking for over 20 years (my mother believes the best skill for a woman is cooking; after all, the way to a man's heart is through his stomach!) Thankfully, I love cooking, and I especially love to bake.
My favorite things to cook
I will bake or cook pretty much anything. Whatever catches my fancy that day.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every dish I make, I always have at least 6-7 garlic cloves. And I always top each dish with cilantro.
My cooking triumphs
I made my very first sponge cake when I was 11 years old. It came out perfect. Every sponge cake I've made since has always fallen. But at least I made a good impression at an early age!
My cooking tragedies
Too many to list. I will need way more than 1000 words, believe you me!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie
Absolutely gorgeous, perfect cookies! I read the reviews & decided to reduce the sugars by 1/2 cup (3/4 brown & 1/4 white) as well as changed the chocolate chips to 1 cup of milk chocolate & 1 cup semi-sweet. I still found them too sweet, so I will reduce by another 1/4 cup of sugar next time, which will sure to be soon. I used an ice cream scoop to measure my cookies - they came out perfectly round & all the same size. Definitely a worthy cookie recipe!!!

Chicken Papadoris
I've just finished enjoying this dish, and it's going into my recipe box. I made a few alterations. I added 2 heaping tsp of curry powder, doubled the cumin & cayenne, and added freshly chopped cilantro at the end - I also omitted the cornstarch/water mixture; it thickens up nicely on its own.

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast
This was fantastic! I've only made pork roast once before and it was terrible. I decided to try once more and I was not disappointed this time around. I stuffed the roast with garlic and rubbed it with salt & pepper, then browned it all over before putting it in the slow cooker. Even my picky two-year-old loved it! This one's going in my recipe box.
