About this Cook
I have been married for 31 years and have a 26 year old daughter and live with 3 rescue pups whom have stolen our hearts.
My favorite things to cook
Probably everything from dinners, to baking, but baking would have to be my favorite.
My favorite family cooking traditions
It took me years to learn how to become a great pie baker, I am known for my apple pies. It also took me years to really get GREAT at stuffed cabbage and now I am well kown for it.
My cooking triumphs
There are so many, but probably my baking. FRom tons of holiday cookie trays I give out as gifts, to wedding cakes on the side to my famous lasagna.
My cooking tragedies
After our wedding, I stored some baked zitis in a casserole dish with a plastic lid. I thought the lid was oven safe and we had melted "lid" all over our baked zitis the next day. That was the only mistake I ever made and my husband has never let me live it down.

Chocolate Babka
OMG This is to die for. I used The fleishmans active dry yeast one envelope is 2 1/4 teaspoons, so I used it as is. I let the Kitchen Aid knead for 15 minutes. It made the most amazing dough. I left it on the preheated stove with saran wrap and it doubled nicely. The dough was just a dream. I can see using this with all kinds of fillings, cherry, cream cheese, cinnamon and sugar. when it came out my daughter and husband each had 3 pieces. In less than 15 minutes ONE was gone. It took over 3 hours, the only downer here. The bread was so delish, light and fluffy. I think I might try semi sweet chips instead of all the chopping of squares. Maybe chips with apricot, yum!!! this was a super hit. WELL WELL WORTH THE WORK!! Showstopping. Couldnt even get a picture of them, they disappeared so fast. Yeast breads can sometimes be tricky for some. This made two fat little rings that never stopped doubling. But this is a no brainer. WONDERFUL!!! 5 stars for sure.

Polish Cabbage Noodles
This is typically called Haluski, the cabbage needs to cook down alot. I usually always use yellow onions. You can also use bacon bits, and fry the onions in the leftover bacon fat. Put the warmed cabbage leftovers in homemade mashed potatoes, without the pasta, this is known as Irish Colcannon and is to DIE for. The Haluski is sold at every farmers market,little league game and street fair in PA. They typically use bow ties with it.
