I am very blessed woman to be married to an amazing man and be a Mom of a combined family of seven kids who's tastes range from picky to adventurous. My precious husband is my willing guinea pig when I decide to go rogue in the kitchen. When I'm stressed cooking/baking helps relax me and itsure it doesn't hurt to have a glass of wine at the same time.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy trying new techniques, flavors and recipes. I also enjoy making recipes that have been passed down to me often times improving on them as well as innovating my own recipes. I love the opportunity to cook for my husband and try all my latest recipes on him; he doesn't seem to mind!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm from a Polish/Ukrainian heritage and grew up in a large family. I learned to cook in quantity They especially love my recipe for perogies and it's nice to be able to pass it down to the next generation of cooks
My cooking triumphs
Inventing recipes that uses whatever I have on hand and seeing my family enjoy them. Trying new techniques, and cultural flavor palates.
My cooking tragedies
Meringues that never dry out and soggy cream puff pastry. I have been know to set off an occasional smoke alarm too.
