I'm a mother of 3 who has always loved cooking. I've recently been making an extra effort to cook almost every meal at home.
My favorite things to cook
Birthday cakes - all kinds! I also love making seafood and anything involving pasta, and I enjoy finding new ways to serve vegetables.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Polish food - My Mom makes fabulous Polish dishes, especially desserts, and my earliest memories are of her making Polish Christmas treats.
My cooking triumphs
I can make a birthday cake that resembles just about anything. I can also tweak a recipe to make it taste just right.
My cooking tragedies
The first cake I ever made was for my husband, back when we were dating. It came out so dry that he could barely cut into it and he choked on his first bite! I've learned a lot since then.
