About this Cook
I work full time as a doctor. I'm just starting to cook meals as opposed to just baking desserts and cakes. This has been a challenge set by my boyfriend who loves his food. It has been alot of fun learning to cook meat, vegetables, noodles, rice and pasta. I haven't burned down the kitchen yet. I am now living in Sydney and have been married for a matter of weeks! It's been a steep learning curve - juggling my schedule and my husband's. We are still trying to stay healthy and minimize take out during the week.
My favorite things to cook
I will always love baking muffins and cakes. But I now enjoy making soups and noodle dishes. I now really love making soups and slow cooker meals.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I bake all the birthday cakes in our family and make the dessert for Christmas lunch.
My cooking triumphs
A prawn and flat leaf parsley stew, a chicken and soy bean udon noodle soup, pear and chocolate crumble. Generally my muffins and cakes are always sucessful and enjoyed.
My cooking tragedies
I once made sweet muffins with chinese 5 spice instead of mixed spice. Another time, I tried to make a dieter's dish of spinach patties in tomato sauce - the patties tasted like soap and fell apart before I could put them in the sauce.

Fabulously Sweet Pear Cake
Great recipe, Rory. Moist, tasty and moreish. I followed the suggestions of: - adding ginger and cinnamon to dry ingredients - forgot to puree the pear mixture but was still fine - only needed to bake for an hour - added thin pear slices to top of cake before baking - used 1/2 C oil and 1/2C apple sauce.

Cinnamon Coffee Cake II
Delicious! Loved by everyone at work. I substituted brewed coffee for the water. For the Australian members, I used Betty Crocker's vanilla cake mix and 2 Cottees vanilla puddings. The cake is so moist and keeps well - if there are any left overs!

Honey Glazed Carrots
Great recipe! Just what I was looking for to accompany the turkey for Christmas Eve dinner. I didn't have MSG and forgot the herbs but it still turned out great!
