About this Cook
I grew up with a mother who thought cooking was opening boxes and cans. As an adult I enjoy good tasting freshly prepared foods. My middle child had many severe food allergies, which forced me to make most foods from scratch when she was little. Thankfully she has outgrown many of her worst allergies. We moved to England in 2004, I cook daily because it is healther and we all enjoy the US flavors.
My favorite things to cook
fresh ingredients. We have found a local farmer that we get fresh meat from monthly - it is so much better than most things wrapped in plastic.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake
fantastic!!!! I made 2 changes, since we live in the UK and don't have access to graham crackers.... so I substituted: 1 1/2 C. digestives and 1/4 C butter. Followed others advice: put a pan of water into the oven while cooking (rather than water bath) and ran a knife around the edge after 1hr cooking time. Then left it to cool in the oven over night. It turned out perfect!

Made this recipe 2x. The first time not wonderful as I had over cooked them on the 2nd cooking. For the initial baking I only needed 20 mins; when I put them in again, it should have been for 6 mins a side. I made the recipe again the next night and watched them more closely. they turned out great! I separated the dough and put dark chocolate chunks in half. Cranberries and almonds in the other half --- very yum and easy! I gave these as gifts to the extra teachers. 3 biscotti in a holiday bag... they looked really nice.
