About this Cook
I've been married since I was 18 and luckily cooked a lot as a kid, therefore, I feel I'm pretty experienced. My kids come lurking around the kitchen every time they hear my mixer running!
My favorite things to cook
Cookies are #1 in my house! I also love to try new, extravagant recipes.
My cooking triumphs
My dad raves over my nut roll cookies. They are my grandmother's Yugoslavian recipe, and he says they are better than her's ever were!
My cooking tragedies
I spent about $25 once on ingredients for a multi-berry pie. It looked wonderful and impressive and was also very heavy. I had used a throw-away pie tin, and when I took it out of the oven, it buckled and fell right out of my hands. Scalding hot berries were everywhere!

Radish Top Soup
This soup was so easy to make and tastes delicious! No one would know it was made with radish tops. The finished color is very green, looks really fresh. I added a spoonful of sour cream to the finished soup. Would definitely recommend.

Sister Schubert's(R) Sloppy Joes
I was pleasantly surprised with this recipe. I was afraid that it would be bland, but made it anyway based off of reviews. I'm glad I did. It was slightly sweet, but tangy as well. I added about five or six drops of hot sauce to give it a little kick. Everyone loved it at my house.

Lemon Square Bars
My kids wanted a sweet snack and asked for cookies. I used the ingredient search tab since I didn't have any brown sugar and wanted to exclude that and stumbled upon this recipe. The only things I did differently were to line my pan with parchment paper and added lemon zest to the filling. Other than that, I followed everything else...ingredients, measurements and time. Very rich tasting!
