About this Cook
I have four grown children - I am running out of people to experiment on!
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking new things and making things that other people enjoy. I love trying to make ethnic foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My parents are both from Scotland - so we have made a lot of scottish food - but my family likes to try different dishes so we have family dinners with different ethnic themes and everyone brings a dish or two.
My cooking triumphs
Anything that turns out well!!
My cooking tragedies
When I first started to cook : Forgetting to take the wax paper out of the middle of a chocolate cake, didn't realize it until someone went to cut it. Losing part of a spatula in spaghetti sauce - my guest got it in theirs! And the usual - pies that don't set, and not realizing that you have to find and take the gizzards out of the turkey before you cook it.

Hot Peanut Sauce
This was the best recipe I found for peanut sauce yet. I rated it five stars even though I made a couple of changes. I added tsp of curry powder and used coconut milk instead of hot water, I will definitely be using this as my regular peanut sauce recipe, as I have yet to find a better or easier one!
