About this Cook
I am a foodie in Philadelphia, and it's a good place to be!
My favorite things to cook
Seafood, anything that I buy at the Italian Market, Thai food. Anything that my friends and family enjoy eating.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pierogies and beet soup for Christmas Eve dinner. It's our families tradition with a little of our Polish roots thrown in.
My cooking triumphs
My first chicken pot pie. Or any pie for that matter.
My cooking tragedies
When I was in high school I tried to make some sort of stuffed chicken breasts for my mom. Not only were they awful and dry but I got a second degree burn trying to take them out of the oven!

Grilled Tuna Teriyaki
The flavor was great, but this was a little too salty for me, even while using reduced sodium soy sauce. I think I may have to try this again by using half soy sauce half balsamic vinegar.
