Welcome

These are my embryonic, but steadily growing cooking pages. Enjoy!

Animal, vegetable or mineral

If you're looking for something specific, please use the search function or the i navigation links in the header. Or ask me! Perhaps you'll inspire me to write up something (and mention your name, if you like).

Try it!

I'm an empiric cook. Times and quantities are never absolute. What is in these pages is mostly a written account of experience and experiment. All recipes have been tested; several have been tested by teenagers (and slightly younger) because those are the recipes from the binder I keep adding to for my daughters to cook when I'm away. I never write up anything I haven't done.

I intend to rate recipes by difficulty, but that's on the to-do list with the index of ingredients.

Where credit's due

Naomi persuaded me to keep my working title. Rebecca had some good ideas about layout (notably the off-white line around the ingredients box).
