About this Cook
Hi there, I'm a thirty year old woman with two children and a loving husband. I love cooking but have been stuck in a routine rut for far too long. I am here to share a few of my delights and to try out some of yours.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking chicken sweet "n" slow Roasts are a big favorite too along with bolognase, chilli, curry and stir fry
My favorite family cooking traditions
The only tradition we have is a full roast dinner on a sunday ( just like most )
My cooking triumphs
None as yet, no I guess it was when i cooked for my inlaws for the first time. Never met them but was cooking for them, god was I in a state. Prawn cocktail, chicken sweet n slow and cheesecake. Worried that no one would like it, not only did his dad like it he went back for seconds and then thirds!
My cooking tragedies
I cant seem to cook yorkshire puddings like my mum, they are still edible but not as light and fluffy.

Roasted Vegetables
I have to say I was more than happy with this recipe. The only change I made was to put in new potatoes insted of the Yukon gold. I shall do this many a time I will experiment with a few ideas and get back to you all. 5*+

Red Wine Flavored Beef
Hi there, I used this recipe as a base really, it sounded really good then I read the reviews so I tried to take on board all what had been said. First of all I cooked diced beef not a large bit, I coated the beef in plain flour with mixed herbs first then put it in to the slow cooker. I used 2 small onions and 5 sliced mushrooms. I could not get packet onion soup so I had to use a tin of French onion soup (I will however try with the packet mix next time) I used half a bottle of red wine and half a pint of vegetable stock. I left it on low for five hours and right at the end put it on the cooker top and added 2 tbs corn flour to thicken up the sauce. I served with roasted veg and mash potatoe, candle light and soft music.
