I'm an American who relocated to the UK over five years ago with my husband and three daughters. We've since welcomed two dogs into the family.
Initially, I found cooking and baking a challenge. Brands and measurements are certainly different here. I work now almost exclusively in metric and have abadoned my cups for my scale with no regrets.
Sometimes, the kids do lament stateside foods and ingredients which we cannot locate here. I admit that I miss canned black beans. I now cook and bake far more from scratch. The produce here is fantastic, and that's important because we are a family of vegetarians.
Zaar's been a great resource for me. It's given me the opportunity to build a fantastic collection of cook books which require no additional shelf space! Moreover, I can gain support and advice from other members.
As vegetarians, we cook a wide variety of veg. I also find myself incorporating many different types of beans in our meals. My slow cooker has become a most valued addition to the family!
I also love to bake breads. My mother taught me when I was a child. I have more bread books than anyone I know. My eldest daughter, who has since moved on to college, learned to bake bread from scratch by hand so as to maintain the family tradition.
Outside of the kitchen, I enjoy photography and hiking. My dogs never refuse a long walk in the woods. Most of my time, however, is consumed by the kids.
