About Me

I have been thinking to make a special page About Me.But every time I say to myself, there is nothing that special to write about me so that plan just stay like that,
but then as you can see I have done a page :-)

I started Cooking after I got maried, and I discovered I have a passion for Cooking and Baking .
So years ago when I came across some food blogs, I thought why not start one of my own.
I really didn't think that I would keep on blogging for so long, I thought I will start blogging and then after a month or two I will get fed up and give it up.
But as you can see I haven't, it has ended up beeing a passion and something I really enjoy doing.

Photography.Ok now this is something discovered years later after I started blogging. And in the end I bought a medium price DSLR Camera and now I fully enjoy taking pictures , especially food pictures.
Updated. Now I have a 50 mm lens which I love using when I take food pictures.

If you are trying my recipes.Sometimes I think when you cook something you have to feel it.
Like if you make a sauce, even while using a recipe you should feel the way it get thicker, etc....
There are times when I make a recipe I just go with the feeling, like sometimes I might add more water, Cream to a certain dish even though the original recipe has asked less or more.
I always say what ever recipe you try you should make according to your liking and your families.

About My Name

I used Happy Cook when I started the blog as I thought it is a temporary thing this blogging, I never thought it will last  so long, so the name Happy Cook stayed on , untill a year ago I thought I should share my real name Finla with my blog readers, but then lot of my readers wanted me to keep my Happy Cook Name so the name still stays :-)
Edited on 28/11/2012 after all these years of blogging I fully started using my name :-) Finla.
