About this Cook
I love to cook. I believe in "eating your mistakes" which accounts for my size....hehe But I am learning to cook healthier meals that my family likes and that don't cause me to buy new pants.
My favorite things to cook
Cookies!!! I love making cookies with my girls. But on a daily basis, I enjoy anything that uses what I have in the pantry, and can be made in 30 min or less.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Being from an overweight, Polish, family....We love cooking together. Christmas, Thanksgiving and even Easter is a time for the kitchen to fill with people and aromas.
My cooking triumphs
As silly as it may sound...I look at the spices when I go shopping and try to find recipes that use a different spice... My goal is to use all of them. But when I finally found a recipe that used Tarragon...I was thrilled.
My cooking tragedies
pie crust...I know, it should be easy... But I can not make a good pie crust. I have probably 5 recipes that people have given me for basic pie crust.... No luck. So for now, I buy ready made and save myself the headaches!

Sausage, Potato and Kale Soup
I make this in the crock pot. I fry the sausage and simply add everything (including the kale) in the crock pot and put it on low for six to eight hours. I love coming home to the aroma!

Mediterranean Chicken
My family of picky eaters loved this dish... I made it exactly as written and then served it over angel hair pasta. It was very good and I will be making this again and again!
