About this Cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
Anything Ukrainian/Polish is big with my family...perogies, cabbage rolls, cornmeal, headcheese. It's all good.
My cooking tragedies
My first attempt at baking a cake when I was 9 years old. I read the instructions and instead of putting 3/4 cup of water, I put in 3 to 4 cups water. (Being so young, I didn't realize the difference) Anyway, intead of chocolate cake, I made a pudding!

Crab Bisque
Still not like the bisques made with real cream and butter, but a good base. I sauted 1/2 minced onion in 1/4 cup real butter first, added 1/2 tsp. cajun spice. Then I added a can of crab meat, with juice. Simmered a couple minutes, added soups, a splash of milk and a splash of white wine.

Mom's Yummy Onion Casserole
Excellent! I did omit the butter and brown 1/2 lb. seasoned ground beef along with the onions for a complete meal in one! (I also omitted the chips, I had none and instead sprinkled bread crumbs over the cheese)

Spicy English Seven-Layer Salad
WOW! The only change I made was that I used 1 c. light mayo and 1 c. fat free sour cream instead of 2 c. mayo for the dressing. I think I will go back for seconds now! :)
