About this Cook
The first time I ever cooked a complete meal was a Sunday dinner for my family. I was 13 and created a complete Italian dinner -- right down to the Italian Rum Cake. It was a big hit and made me want to try other recipes. I have loved cooking ever since.
My favorite things to cook
Among my friends I am known for my baking -- pies, cakes, breads, etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from an English family -- so nothing beats good old roast beef and Yorkshire pudding.
My cooking triumphs
I have done specialty cakes for friends. My favorite was a white chocolate and raspberry wedding cake I created for a cousin. I also love to create kid's birthday cakes -- they are a lot of fun.
My cooking tragedies
Way too many to list... they go all the way back to a "peanut butter soup" I made for my father when I was about 10. You can't be afraid to try something new --and that means failures along the way.

Tomato Cakes
I was staying at a girlfriend's house dog-sitting. She is a vegetarian and had a fridge full of organic tomatoes so I decided to try this recipe. I am not a vegetarian, but this was terrific! I added a little basil and garlic and served the cake on a spinch wrap with some cheddar cheese and sauteed spinach -- AWESOME!!!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread
This is still my favorite pumpkin bread recipe! The only things I do differently are to cut the oil to 1/2 C. and the flour to 3 C., use 1C. White Sugar and 1 C. Brown Sugar... and add extra Cinnamon and Ginger... and 3/4 C. raisins. Fabulous!

Prawn Nasi Goreng
I tried this receipe because I needed a fast and easy dinner the other night and I had the shrimp on hand. I substituted bell pepper, mushrooms and snow peas because those were the veggies I had. It was terrific! My husband, who is a very fussy man, asked for seconds. This is a keeper!
