My name is Fiona. I don’t consider myself a particularly good cook, I just think that anyone can make delicious food as long as they’re following a delicious recipe. This blog it my attempt to never forget the good ones, most of which come from my mom.Β Thanks, Mom!

  1. Hi Fiona!
    Your Mom and my husband, Thomas McConkey work together. He showed me your site and I am so impressed with your style! I love it! I will send to my daughter who is getting married in July and is learning cooking skills and enjoying it! I think she will really appreciate your directions in concert with the pictures. And the photography is quite good. You have a true talent. I think you should connect with FoodTV, you are a contender. Love to your Mom and by the way, her how to cook an egg is right on! I have a very similar one and have to tell you…I share all the time, it is an exact science to meet perfection. You have a very smart Mother…and love your example of a truly positive relationship… Best of luck with your talent.

    1. Hi Valerie! Thank you so much for your kind comment! Not sure I’m cut out for FoodTV, though. I’ll probably leave that one to my mom. πŸ™‚ Congratulations to your daughter, by the way!


  2. Have you any recipes for Pistachio crusted pork with a plum sauce?? I’ve heard it’s terrific.
    Love your blog!!

  3. Your blog looks delicious, and not just because of the recipes. The light-hearted humor that you incorporate into your posts along with the wonderfully clear and crisp images makes me (a person who’s only ever managed to master grilled cheese sandwiches and just-add-water pancakes) want to have a good go at cooking.

    I have never bothered to subscribe to blogs before in the past because most of the time it’s a muddled mess and isn’t particularly engaging. However, your blog (linked to me via my sister) has captured my attention and my interest, and I do hope to use it as a guide and a tool in the future. Thank you and your mother very much.

      PS – I love grilled cheese sandwiches. Probably too much.

    1. Well, hey! Thanks! Always good to meet friends of Jenny’s. πŸ™‚

      PS – I overuse smiley faces. I’m not ashamed.

      PPSS – I think I overuse PS’s too.

    1. Hey Charlene! How are you? I feel like it’s been forever since I saw you last. πŸ™‚ Thanks for the nice comments about the blog … I’m looking forward to updating it again once my computer and camera are working again. Hope to see you sometime – thanks for keeping my mom sane at work!
