About this Cook
I like trying new recipes - I love challenges!
My favorite things to cook
I personally love baking cakes, pastries (sweet or savoury), but I also like making main dishes too.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Hmmm, not sure on that one... I seem to have descended from a long line of "can-opening, ready-meal-eating" ancestors!
My cooking triumphs
My first three-tiered chocolate gateaux, sausage plait, and various pasta dishes.
My cooking tragedies
An "exploding" coffee sponge that kept on rising without any form of raising agent(!!) that got stuck to the bottom of the oven as well as the shelves. Scotch pancakes that went soggy, and a fruit crumble that was made with an entire bag of salt that had been packaged wrongly at the factory as sugar!

Beef Potato House Pie Casserole
My family and I loved this dish! I will definitely be making this again. I had no problems with the beef mixture being too dry but I found I had too much of it and ended up freezing the spare as I couldn't fit it all in the dish! Next time I'm going to use less beef but this is definitely a favourite, thanks!
