About this Cook
I'm 22 and I live in Birmingham with my boyfriend. I don't get much chance to take my time over cooking but when I do it's something I really enjoy. I have also recently discovered I suffer from IBS so I am trying to adapt all my old favourites to my new diet.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking with whatever is in the fridge. Some of the best things I have cooked have been all the bits left in the fridge that needed to be used up!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mum is a great cook. She showed me how to do all the basic I know and i still call her if I get stuck. She also showed me how to make Spinach and Ricotta (Low Fat) Cannelloni which is a firm favourite with me and my boyfriend now we live on our own! Also my little sister is a very fussy vegetarian so i like finding things she will eat with us!
My cooking triumphs
My First Christmas Dinner!!!!
My cooking tragedies
I made a Slow Cooked Beek casserole. The vegetables all turned out wonderfully but it was a cheap bit of meat and i left it cooking a little too long so you could bounce the meat by the time it came out!

Beef Wellingtons
If you line the bottom of the pastry with bread (brown is best) it stops the pastry from being as soggy!
