I am inspired by my Grandmother's home style, Polish cooking since I can remember. I've been working with food for almost 10 years and letting her legacy live on.
My favorite things to cook
Cakes and pies, macaroni & cheese, piggies, chicken soup, breads, stir fry, and anything Italian.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cabbage soup, mashed rutabaga, piggies, meatballs, pierogies, and fruit cake.
My cooking triumphs
When I was 10 or so, I made up a recipe I called "Dinner Eggs". It was scrambled eggs with just about every spice my mother had in the lazy Susan. They looked black. I fed them to my dad and he ate them and told me they were delicious. I know they weren't and this is hardly a triumph, however, it was the moment that I decided that I would try to become the best cook ever.
My cooking tragedies
I made a banana cream pie from scratch when I was about 13 years old. The pudding filling fell. Whether I messed up or the recipe stunk, I have no idea. I've never tried to make it again.
