About this Cook
Retired mom of 2 and now an empty-nester trying to adjust to cooking for 1, which makes for lots and lots of leftovers in the freezer.
My favorite things to cook
Soups in the winter and salads in the summer. I have a small garden that usually produces too many tomatoes (if there is such a thing), so my freezer keeps those beauties ready to use all winter long.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My children (adults now, but still my children) always look forward to The Big Breakfast on Christmas and Easter, and the usual feast on Thanksgiving Day.
My cooking triumphs
World's best golombkis and kapusta.
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make one of the most popular "overnight breakfast casserole" 2 years ago for Christmas morning. I almost always cook with fresh ingredients and use very few processed foods. The breakfast casserole (which featured frozen hash-browns) was not at all well-received, but we had a good laugh about it.

Quick and Easy Carrot and Chickpea Salad
This sounds perfect! I'm having friends over after work tomorrow, one of whom is a real gourmande, which always makes me nervous (even though I'm pretty good in the kitchen). I'll serve this along with a bruscetta made with sauteed kale and goat cheese. It will be a perfect foil to the spicy-hot kale mixture. Thanks a million!!!

Versatile Chicken Salad
Versatile Chicken Salad

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.

Beautiful Broccoli Salad
Beautiful Broccoli Salad

Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
