New from South Africa

Hi
I am an amateur cook from South Africa who loves to experiment with any and everything. I have started up a blog for jotting down the recipes I experiment with. I look forward to interacting with everyone here.

Welcome to DC, S-David!

I did check your blog and, though your recipes sound great, Momma's recipe for potato salad may have to throw down with your potato salad claim.

Hope to hear more of what you like to cook!

*clasps the recipe to her to keep it hidden* We would need a third party to exchange recipes for one so treasured.

Hi, Chef Dave! Glad to see I'm not the only amateur here, though you're focusing on cooking while I'm just baking. Good luck with everything--we novices have to look out for each other! ;)

I had a look at your blog. Very interesting. I have tried baking a few times with reasonable success, although I tend not to follow recipes and just figure it out myself. I think your problem with muffins might be that the mix is too liquid. Since the container is smaller the muffins rise up more quickly, causing the liquid batter to spill over. Try thickening the muffin mix slightly before pouring. I make mine so thick that I have to scrape it off the spoon...
