THE ART OF ‘OLD FASHION COOKING’

The Art of ‘Old Fashion Cooking’

Handed down through 6 generations!

Me Doing What Makes Me Happy – usually finds me trying a new recipe at every opportunity. Even when I’m inspired by a new recipe – I’m still a bit of a rebel because I hardly ever follow the recipe. I like switch ingredients in and out!

Cooking has been in my family for generations and it just keeps going . . .

My Great Granny, Evangeline & Great Grandpa, Walter – 

great grandparents

My Great Granny and Grandpa were hands-on gardeners and provided all the fruit, vegetables and eggs to the neighbours and local doctor! My Grandpa never went to school and could not read or write but his passion for gardening was his happy place to be every day.  As a child, I remembered that that’s where he would be out the back working in the garden, it was a huge back yard with an outdoor dunny and an almost 100 years old grumpy cocky! Grandpa was famous for his apples and Granny made the best apple pies that were requested by him. There’s some truth to when you grow your own produce without all the chemicals that you’ll be healthier and live longer, my Granny lived to 89 years old and Grandpa, well he almost lived to 100 years old, but unfortunately passed two weeks before his 100th birthday, another memory was . . . every day he enjoyed a glass of stout in a recycled cream cheese glass, victory for a hard day’s work ♥

My Grandma, Elma Selina Skuse

grandma-granny-grandpa

My Grandma had a reputation for making the most amazing sponges, her thing was sweets . . . her cooking was well acknowledged winning awards at “The Lockleys Show” and Royal Adelaide Show” for her Sponge Cakes, Scones, Little Butterfly Cakes with a Glazed Cherrie on top, Marshmallows with yellow centers, Round Pink Lamingtons made to look like a peach and was famous for her Toffees and Toffee Apples!

Setting up trading tables for all sorts of events and fundraisers was a weekly event!

My Mum, Barbara

I’m incredibility lucky and very proud of my Mother Barbara who was a professional cook working at some of Adelaide’s top hotels, this was her passion, getting the mob (as she called them) around to share her favourite dishes just because, and on special occasions. My mothers favourite time of year being Christmas, she loved being with family and her number one dish every year was to have prawn cocktails and crumbed prawns with her prize seafood sauce!   

Mum had several signature dishes and a few that stand out with the whole family the good old “Jelly Slice” and then her famous “Sausage Rolls and Christmas Pudding, this recipe was handed down from her mum and her Grandmother. Mum’s inspiration came from Maggie Beer, friends, cutouts from the paper, magazines, TV show and a huge fan of “My Kitchen Rules”.

50556895_222656495354944_7418558179857924096_n
My Mothers Famous “Jelly Slice” was made by my daughter Kelly!

I’m very proud of myself since my Mothers passing and have now perfected the Christmas Pudding, I love this traditional dessert and mentioned to my daughter ” When I’m in my 90’s this is all I will want for Christmas, a piece of pudding” so I guess it will be her turn to carry on the tradition when it’s time.♥

And then there’s me . . . Cheryl 🙂

Well, I’m no professional cook but I’m really inspired to decorate cakes and just spend time exploring new recipes. When I cook it’s not just about preparing the food to cook and eat; I see it as Art’ I love to use of colours, texture, and shapes altogether, it’s presenting food in a creative way . . .

I call it “Culinary Art”

jaffa hedgehog slice

My parents divorced when I was 15 years old and lived with Dad and my two younger brothers for a while. This is where I was happy to step up and cook! There was this one-time making Chocolate Crackles I accidentally used gravox (powdered gravy) instead of cocoa powder yuk! My brothers didn’t seem to mind as they still ate them, probably because they still had a sweet taste too them. So not everything I made was a success but really enjoy re-inventing Old Fashion recipes, it has that homely, warm, fuzzy feeling about it! Food just like Mum or Grandma used to make, even when the kids come over, they still check out the pantry and fridge . . .  that’s what kids do!  I love to honor the food that I prepare and eat. When you bring, colours, flavours, and textures together there’s something magically creative about the process. Food is appreciated and tastes better when made with LOVE! ♥

My Daughter, Kelly Selina

Then there’s my daughter, Kelly spent many holidays with her Grandma (my mum) cooking in the kitchen.

Kelly & Husband Bradley

Kelly also has a knack and passion for cake decorating. A craft that has been handed down through generations and now has a modern twist to it!

It didn’t take long in this small community for word to get around about her signature cakes and Cup Cakes! Inspired by her girls, every birthday had Kelly creating a new design or theme, personalised and driven by her daughter’s favourite superhero, barbie, favourite colour or flavour, had the locals asking for her to create a cake for their Children’s Birthday, Engagement, Wedding, and School Events.

Kelly even created the most gorgeous cupcakes for my wedding and High Tea Party Fundraiser for the “Starlight Children’s Foundation” at ‘The Partridge House Glenelg’!

Kelly’s talent even got some attention through social media with Woolworths wanting her to create a “Caramel Cake Hack” I believe they call them? Pictured below ⇓

“Girl’s just wanna have ‘FUN’ right”?

Well, that is my intention when I’m booked for babysitting!

My time with the girls has to be fun and memorable when hanging out!

Cooking is one activity that is well received! We’ve have had many Saturday afternoons and nights in the kitchen together making Lemon Paris Biscuits, Apple Crumble, Raspberry Balls, these are just a few I remember.

They also hang out with their Mum in the kitchen a lot! They certainly know the drill when there’s a birthday or special event approaching.

I’m really looking forward to spending many more years in the kitchen with them all!

Watching their little faces and listening to them interacting gives me immense joy, they all have their own unique style and ideas when it comes to cooking. When making Apple Crumble for instance and chopping up the fruit, one will cut the apple into tiny little squares and the other will cut big chunks, then one of them is happy to participate, but won’t eat it! At the end of the day, I believe cooking is a wonderful place for fun, learning about food and their health. 

“Thank you for connecting with all of us!” 

“This was fun! Writing this page really brings it back home to what you remember about your family or someone special you know in your life, what their passions are and to know why you do what you just do!

Everyone has fond memories of spending time in the kitchen with their Mums, Grandmothers, Grannies, Nanna’s & Nonnas etc.

Sharing the ART of food, whether it’s for daily inspiration, a family gathering or homely gift, let’s team up and practice “The Art of Old Fashion Cooking” from scratch keeping it ALIVE!!!

 

This is one of my passions, that I love to share with others!

Get a Fresh Start . . . Law of attraction Journaling!

You can start where you are right now; think about where you’ve been, where you are, and where you want to be. Goal setting is a powerful process for envisioning what you would like to accomplish and motivating yourself to make that vision a reality.

  1. Go journal shopping . . . some of my favourite places are Kikki K, Kmart & Target.
  2. Make sure your journal is empty and never been used.
  3. Choose a design that sparks joy for you!
  4. The size of the journal should relate to the size of your goal for example . . . let’s say your goal is to Travel all over the world in every country or to make One Million Dollars, you may need a thicker and bigger journal, if you are visual like me, you may want to draw or paste pictures, add stickers inside celebrating every entry full of love. The magic of this exercise is by the time you get to the end of your journal, your dream has already been manifested or it’s well on its way to doing so.

Journaling image

So once you have your physical journal you can NOW begin . . . Yeah!!!!

THINK BIG . . . be specific, write in your journal everyday as if you have already achieved your goal & dreams.

  • Use the powers of the Laws of Attraction.
  • Get ‘really’ clear on your goals & desires.
  • List five things you really want.
  • Think about all areas of your life . . . career, finances, relationships, family, friends, and fun; want to get married, transform your body, buy a home etc.
  • Then circle or highlight which one you desire or want the most.
  • I would suggest if you choose more than one to have a separate journal for each goal.
  • Slice . . . out! part of your day, every day to commit to writing in your journal.
  • Write in it as if your dream has already coming true.
  • Create wonderful feelings. It’s like creating magic in your heart when writing.
  • Write in detail to raise your energy and vibration.
  • Feel the gratitude of having these ‘intentions’ in your life right NOW; this will help influence the rest of your day! (((Gratitude is magnetic!)))
  • Also think about the things you already have in your life right now, lean into that feeling.
  • NOW take inspired ACTION! Ask yourself: “What is one thing I can achieve right now?”AND GO do that!!!
