About this Cook
I'm 21, and live with my boyfriend (who thankfully lives for food) and my daughter Naiomh, who was born in September 2005.
My favorite things to cook
Absolutely anything and everything - I'm always interested in new things. I'd have to say my specialities are definitely Italian foods, particularly pasta dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
None of my immediate family were ever really avid cooks; my sister dabbles from time to time due to her home economics classes at school but generally, I'm the only one.
My cooking triumphs
My Christmas dinner in 2005. It was my first ever attempt, and my boyfriend and I had just moved into our new house. Our friend brought us a bottle of champagne, which I drank while cooking, and yet it all turned out perfectly. The previous night I'd marinaded some winter vegetables and made my own stuffing - from scratch! - and it all came together so well, my boyfriend said it was better than his mother's! Praise indeed, I thought.
My cooking tragedies
We all have them....I'll admit that I accidentally flooded my Christmas creamed potatoes with milk; I wasn't looking as I poured it in and ended up salvaging it by making a potato soup from it.

Twisty Cookies
I've been looking around for a good basic cookie recipe, and found it here. I omitted the alcohols and added cinnamon, nutmeg and a pinch of mixed spice to make cinnamon cookies, and they were divine - crisp on the outside, moist and chewy on the inside. The only problem is that they're highly addictive - they're all gone after baking 16 last night! I'm keeping this recipe for future use.
