Along with my National Food Day quest (follow my adventures here), I’m still trying some new recipes.   However, this hasn’t been without dramas either .  This weekend I’ve managed to:

  • Break our food processor, affectionately known as ‘The Wazzer’, meaning we needed to buy a new one …
  • Burn the filling for a special dessert for Grant, meaning we had to make an emergency dash to the shops to get more supplies …
  • Realise that egg whites can’t be whipped with a ‘slender blender’ (see the first point above!) – it needs a whisk, either electronic (much easier) or the hand-held variety – only realised after trying to obtain soft peaks after using the slender blender – they ended down the sink …
  • Realise that pineapple can (and should) be used in baking cookies …

 And again, you get the opportunity to have a say as to which of the following you’d like me to put on this website (after I make sure they’re good enough and reproducible enough for success!):

So add your thoughts in the comments below … I’d love to hear from you!  And if you like the recipes you see here on the website, please subscribe so you keep up to date with the new recipes I add.  Or sign up your friends and family …

I’ve just signed myself up for a Twitter account, so if you’re on Twitter, please follow me @sarahcookathome … and you’ll get all the adventures as I cook my way through the US National Food Day calendar!

Until next time, enjoy cooking at home!

Sarah
