About this Cook
~Hi! My name is Annette!! ~I'm Roman-Catholic - I have yet to miss a Sunday Mass or a Holy Day of Obligation. ~I'm Polish (and part gypsy). ~I am a people-person. I love all sorts of people and simply being AROUND people makes me happy. Therefore I also don't divert to being alone - but if it ever comes down to it, I would rather be alone than with people I can't stand. ~I appreciate intelligent conversation and love when I can learn something new from someone. ~I am vivacious, generous, and light-hearted. ~I'm the oldest of four kids - I have a younger brother, another brother, and a sister - all in that order. ~I LOVE stories - all and ANY kinds of stories - love to listen and love to tell them!!
My favorite things to cook
~I DON'T HAVE AIM but I do have a gmail and you can instant message me on that: ~I love rain, thunderstorms, and lightning. ~I paid for College MYSELF. ~I never learned how to ski, rollerblade, do a cartwheel, or swim. ~I love adventures. Just going or doing something I don't usually do. Like going to the zoo with some friends - that would be an adventure for me as it's not something I've done in a while. ~I have a problem with drunks - don't ask me why - maybe because being raised with Polish people made me see how idiotic they get once they pull out that bottle of vodka.Or maybe it's just because of bad experiences with exes. Or maybe it's just because I prefer to have people in my company that can DEAL with their problems - without using alcohol (or cigarettes or any other addiction) as a means of forgetting their problems.
My favorite family cooking traditions
~I love making stuff - anything - from candles to clothes, from drawings to photos - I consider myself very imaginative and creative, therefore I obsess over "prettifying" things and just making things in general! ~I love pomeranians (dog breed). ~I LOVE magic. ~I used to consider myself on the Conservative/Republican side (yes, I voted for Bush and WE WON!!). However I also disagree with some conservative 'principles', hence agreeing with liberal principles - like the death penalty. I don't fully agree with EITHER party, therefore, I consider myself to be on the Moderate/Independent side. ~MY VALUES: I'm proLIFE, against gay marriage (but FOR civil union), against the death penalty, against artificial insemination, against divorce (except in extreme cases), etc. etc. But I'm also open-minded and don't necessarily cast someone out for not agreeing with me.
My cooking triumphs
~Overall I just like to have fun - whether it be as big as attending some festivity down-town with all my friends, my significant other, or anyone else close to me; or as small as just sitting with ONE of those people and talking about things like our interests or current events - I like to be entertained. And if you know me - you know it honestly doesn't take that much to entertain me - I love people and just having people in my presence is entertaining enough! ^_^

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan
I made this recipe to surprise my boyfriend after he came home from work and he and his roommates DEVOURED this fish. My bf said this was the best fish he'd ever eaten, and his roommate doesn't even eat seafood, but said this fish was delicious. It was my first time broiling and cooking fish so I wasn't too sure how this would turn out. Very happy with the results. Easy fish, great taste - will make again and again! GREAT recipe!! Thanks for submitting

Winter Fruit Salad with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing
Lovely recipe!! My work has a WONDERFUL spinach strawberry salad in which the poppyseed dressing is used. It is spinach leaves, strawberries, mandarin oranges, onions, and sunflower seeds - but I dislike the oranges and onions on there. Perhaps some of you would like to try this dressing on something similar!! :)

Poppy Seed Bread with Glaze
I was just about to submit this same exact recipe!! The amount of poppy seeds can be adjusted - I tripled the amount and it tasted great. Also, the glaze on this is phenomenal - just keep layering it and each layer crystallizes beautifully. Overall, absolutely AMAZING - I get asked for the recipe all the time!
