About this Cook
I am a stay at home mother of two and I enjoy cooking new things. I pretty much stick to the recipe since I am still trying to figure out how seasonings and ingredients mix together for the flavors my family likes. I would love to be able to just throw things together and have it turn out great like many cooks can do. One day I hope to take some cooking classes to learn some tricks of the trade.
My favorite things to cook
Pasta sauce and chicken breasts are staples in our home.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holidays of course where my mom and aunts overdue it with multiple main dishes and an abundance of desserts.
My cooking triumphs
I ground, stuffed, and cooked my own polish sausage. Can't say I will do than again any time soon since it took forever!!
My cooking tragedies
I still can't make a decent chocolate chip cookie!

Make Ahead French Toast
Flavor was great. Based on reviews I wasn't quite sure if I should add all the remaining egg liquid after soaking the bread or not so I added half of it. I used a french loaf that was a day old and soaked the pieces for about 30 sec before adding to the pan. This didn't seem to be good enough even adding the half of the egg mix over the top. Some of the bread wasn't soaked through even after over night so was a little dry when cooked. But, I did use 1 cup milk and 1 cup heavy whipping cream so maybe the thickness of the cream kept it from absorbing through. I only used 4 eggs too since there was so much liquid that couldn't possibly be used for the loaf (which I used more than half of). Sprinkled some cinnamon on top before baking too. 1/3 c. butter and 3/4 c. brown sugar with the syrup with the pecans was plenty sweet for us. 40 min was perfect timing for us.

Easy Quiche
We had this for "breakfast for dinner" and it went over well. Seemed to brown too fast on the edges so next time I will tent it with foil for the first half then remove to brown at the end. I added a few dashes of salt and pepper and I am sorry I added the salt b/c it was too much with the saltiness of the ham, cheese, and butter. I might venture away from the ham and broccoli next time to see what other combinations work!

Southern Dill Potato Salad
This was pretty easy and tasted great. I diced the potatoes before boiling but the 20 min was a bit too much since they were small chunks so adjust accordingly if you dice first. My husband doesn't like hard boiled eggs so I put some aside without and then added only 3 to the rest of the batch. I followed the measurements other than just a tad of Dijon per our taste.
