I'm 27 and single, and live with my cat Monty who is a little bit loopy, but keeps me amused. I live on the south coast of England
My favorite things to cook
Soups and stews are my speciality! They are particularly good on a cold winters night. My work colleagues are always interested to know what soup i am bringing in for lunch! Stews are great because you can make a big batch and have loads left over for tomorrow! I love to bake cakes and biscuits, but i'm on a diet and so i have to stay away from the temptation!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family doesn't really have any as such. But the time of the year stand out for my family. During BBQ season my extended family will get together, and my dad will have made his own burgers etc by the family method (lets see what we have in the store cupboard and then throw it in the mixture method!)and we will while away the sunny afternoon into the evening with good company, laughter and food. A good mixture i think!
My cooking triumphs
Not sure i have any sure fire hits or triumphs so far!
My cooking tragedies
My first attempt at making a chuntney. It was supposed to be green tomato chutney, but it ended up a black mess on the bottom of the pan! I've made chutneys since, but never tried green tomato again - i think i am going to have a glut of tomatoes in my garden this year...so may be its time to give it another go. After all, if at first you don't succeed, try and try again!
