I love to cook. I have been cooking since I can remember and like to create dishes that are just a bit different. I am also a bit of a cheat. I like authentic flavours but if I am cooking for a dinner party I want to spend time with my guests rather than slaving away in the kitchen while they are drinking wine at the table. I like to think that my recipes are quick and relatively easy. I try to keep fat and salt to a minimum and use Olive or Rapeseed oil as somebody told me that it was healthy. I almost never cook with salt. My blood pressure is borderline and I am told that too much salt isn't good for you. Sugar is my biggest wind up! I like sugar in sweet things like cake and ice cream but why do they have to put it in Gravy? I check the ingredients of everything I buy and if a savoury product lists sugar on the ingredients then it goes back on the shelf.
