About this Cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from a Czechoslovakian background and so perfecting the kolache has been what I've been working on since the time I started cooking. It should only take another twenty years or so.
My cooking tragedies
The one that comes to mind is the party potatoes I made for a graduation party in a large 18 quart roaster. I pulled a recipe off the internet--not this site--and found that the potatoes weren't even close to being done. Fortunately I had enough other food that no one noticed,when I pulled them off the menu except for a friend who was helping me set up and she WON'T EVER forget.

Quick and Easy Grilled Potatoes
Perfect. I love not having to worry about when/if the potato is done and then trying to time that to coincide with everything else. This takes all the guess work out and leaves nothing but grilled, smoky crispy baked potatoes to enjoy.

Banana Crumb Muffins
This is the one that fits my idea of what a banana muffin should be. Just the right moistness and the banana flavor really comes through. Sometimes I skip the streusel topping when I'm in a hurry and just sprinkle a little brown sugar. This recipe is a keeper.
