Ode to Butter...
Beautiful Bouquet
Utterly Delish
Transcending Europhoria
Teleporting Memories
Europhoric Memories

How fun was that??!!  I cannot say enough like many others who have posted about butter that butter does make a huge difference in cooking/baking.  I have used other variations like shortening, oil, margarine but still, I always have preferred butter overall.  Taste, outcome of the dish surely depends on the ingredients-without butter, I would not have won First Place of my gourmet chocolate chip cookies at Cuyahoga County Fair of 2010!  Without butter, my baking goods, cakes, cookies, pastries would not be popular without it.  I cannot make anything without butter that absolutely wins overall.  There are variations of butters out there and my preference is always sweet cream butter..seems to give a lift in baking and extra creaminess to cooking.  Butter has teleported me back in time with many memories of my late mother and her cooking/baking.  Without her and her skills, I would not been an accomplished baker/chef that I am.  So I thank to our dairy farmers for providing such great product that for generations of bakers/chefs in my family to pass down for memories, present and for the future generations to come!

About Me
I am a single mother of a terrific 9-year old little girl who is a finicky eater. I love to cook, bake, etc. but I am always dieting, so I don't make my favorite foods unless its special occasions. I am known for my famous decadent pastries, baked goods, especially CHOCOLATE!!! Any recipe I can do unless I don't have the tools. I love to collect antiques even old cookie molds that I use for my baking as well as a vintage clothing collector. I am a martha stewart at home, love to create and be artistic. I have lately been creative with recipes trying to create healthy, diet dishes that are tastey and not going on the waist with much success that also don't mess with my blood sugar and getting rave reviews from people in the local gym I attend.
My favorite things to cook
Anything my late Mother used to make for us kids (well, almost..still don't like liver!. I wish I had her cookbook but it was lost in a move years ago. I love making all slovak dishes my mother used to make and do it just from my head from watching her over the years in the kitchen. I hope I pass this to my daughter as well.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up in a european home, the tradition is in the kitchen, if you want to learn how to cook is to sit and watch. This was told to me by my mother as she was told to by her grandmother the same for generations. That's how they become such great cooks that no one could match.
My cooking triumphs
Anytime I make bakery for special occasion, the satisfaction is the smiles on their faces. I have a reputation to keep up for my sweets!! For one function I attend, they always expect me to bring a rich, decadent chocolate dessert which every year is different from the last!!! I have a saying, "Homemade is Bettermade!" when people rave my goodies over any commercial goods. = ) in which gives me my motivation to even be better!
My cooking tragedies
I have had plenty and still do..when it comes to creativity or sometimes, have to re-do cake since I am a perfectionist..but that's how we learn, learn from our mistakes.
