About this Cook
From Blackpool UK, Married in 2004 to a Charleston local, and moved to the USA. My best friend is a huge influence on me as she is a professional chef. Since all the meals that come out of her kitchen are so wonderful, I guess the want and need to prepare such wonderful meals finally began to rub off on me. I have a 2 year old son, so I also enjoy incorporating as much fresh veg into his diet while trying to "hide" the things he wont eat.
My favorite things to cook
I will take savory over sweet anyday!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Being from England my family usually cooks the typical "meat, 2 veg and a starch" kind of meal. However, my new family in South Carolina have some wonderful old recipes for "meeting street shrimp", gumbo and all the southern favorites.
My cooking triumphs
My Moroccan Lamb Burgers - if you can call them a burger. I entertained several people with them and everyone wanted my recipe.
My cooking tragedies
Too many too list! I had the in-laws over for dinner and made a Chicken Supreme, left it too long sat on the stove and it burned and turned black at the bottom of the pan....they suggested we call for pizza.

Pumpkin Soup the Easy Way
I made this soup with a fresh pumpkin, I cut into half, deseeded and rubbed with melted butter, then baked for about 40 minutes until golden. I scooped out the pumpkin and and combined with the broth. I also added a cut up and roasted ruderbager for a extra bite of flavor as pumpkin is a very lightly flavor vegetable once baked. I had my doubts about the flavor when I first made this soup. I made in the morning and reheated it that evening and all the flavors had blended together. It was wonderful.

Artichoke & Spinach Dip Restaurant Style
All this tasted of was the container of Alfredo sauce. If that's what your looking for, great. But I wanted that creamy restaurant style, which this was nothing like. Will continue my search for a good Dip recipe.

Sweet and Sour Smoked Sausage
I used chicken instead of sausage, and added some chunks of fresh pineapple and fresh tomato along with the other fresh ingrediants. I used about a half of the bottle of sauce to just coat the veg and meat without it being too over powering and it was perfect.
