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

The Food You Crave: Luscious Recipes for a Healthy Life

Crispy chicken fingers : page 200

This was just okay. I was looking to find a way to use up a box of cornflakes I recently bought for another recipe and the idea of using them crushed as breadcrumbs intrigued me. The chicken fingers came out not as crispy as I was hoping for, though still juicy. I think next time I'll stick to the usual coating of dried breadcrumbs.

Honey Mustard Sauce : page 200

I was quite surprised but I did not like this at all. There was way too big a ratio of mustard to mayonnaise for my taste and I normally like honey mustard sauce. I made this to go with the crispy chicken fingers on the same page but then ended up just using store-bought barbecue sauce as a dip instead.
