Tuna Noodle Casserole IV
Italian Cuisine...
About this Cook
I am a high school student from Southern Canada, hoping her cooking skills go from impossibly bad to better! I used to burn everything I made -even water somehow-, but am improving every day! My family, boyfriend and friends are my voluntary guinea pigs, and are willing to try my cooking, asking me to make things for them all the time. Some turn out to be successes, some...not so much. None of them have been sick off of my cooking just yet thank goodness, but I realize trial and error is all part of the cooking experience.
My favorite things to cook
Anything with fish or family is from Newfoundland, so I guess it's in the blood. Pasta is another favourite, though.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Anything and everything. The old Christmases before my aunt and uncle divorced were the best, a combination of traditional Canadian/American and Ukrainian food. It was a little odd to see borscht and turkey on the same table, but it was still delicious.
My cooking triumphs
Crunchy spinach dip. The recipe is in one of my cookbooks, and let me tell you it's actually foolproof! Add in a hollowed pumpernickel loaf and I was good to go.
My cooking tragedies
There have been so many, although the funniest one had to be helping my mom bake cupcakes when I was little. She used to make them for everything: Christmas, Halloween, my birthday, and I'd bring them into school. Somehow, when I tried to make my own on that stormy afternoon, my cupcake ended up collapsing inside the of my first incidents with using yeast when baking. Oops!

Grandma's Polish Perogies
These were so tasty, and made quite a lot!! I live in a house of twelve and it fed all of us comfortably. Instead of buying processed cheese sauce, I doubled the amount of grated cheddar and added in sliced green onions, garlic powder, and extra onion salt. So good!

Quick and Easy Pancit
What a versatile recipe! This stuff is great on its own, though to make it better we add in extra noodles (soba), hoisin sauce and other vegetables such as red pepper slices and water chestnuts - maybe some extra chicken. This can be easily doubled for a crowd.

Parmesan Cheese Twists
Sort of time-consuming and the puff pastry turned out a little difficult to work with. Overall not too bad though.
