About me: Hello! Living in London with my husband and cat, I have only just become more interested in cooking over the last few years, especially as I became more and more dismayed by my inability to return the favour of cooking for family and friends, which is now something I love to do even though it still sometimes makes me nervous. I wasn't really taught how to cook when I was young so I've had to teach myself which I've been doing with the help of the Good Food and Food Network channels along with my growing collection of cook books. My favourite, "teachers," in the kitchen have been Nigella Lawson and Jamie Oliver, though I love watching cookery programmes in general and find just reading through cook books to be a great source of comfort. I'm really pleased to have stumbled upon this website as it has the potential to be a great resource and is exactly what I was wishing and looking for with regards to a simple way of keeping track of recipes I've tried.

Favorite cookbook: Ministry of Food by Jamie Oliver

Favorite recipe: pot-roast meatloaf from Ministry of Food

Hungarian goulash : page 166

I decided to make this yesterday while my OH was watching the Hungarian Grand Prix. It was a pretty easy, straightforward stew of diced beef, onions, paprika, peppers, tinned tomatoes and sour cream stirred in at the end. Before I added the sour cream (or crème fraiche in my case) I realised that the stew smelled and tasted *exactly* like my paternal grandmother's (Eastern European Jewish), "Swedish," meatballs. Heh! Now I know her secret. In any case, this was a nice tasty dish which went well with rice and will be good to have up my sleeve when winter comes.
