About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I like to try cooking new things!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family cooking tradition is the pierogi casserole my grandma has made every christmas since I was a little girl.
My cooking triumphs
I think my biggest cooking triumph was making scrambled eggs in the microwave when I was 6 years old. It took about an hour. I would cook the eggs for a minute on a low power take them out stir and repeat until they resembled scrambled eggs. I was so proud of myself!
My cooking tragedies
My biggest cooking tragedy was also when I was a kid. I believe I was about 8 years old. I was making cookies on my own and I put an entire cup of baking powder in instead of a teaspoon

Butter Rich Spritz Butter Cookies
I followed this recipe exactly, and the cookies tasted fine, but did not hold their shape at all, which completely defeats the purpose of making spritz cookies. I ended up using a different recipe, which worked great.

Cream Cheese Kolacky
The cookies taste great, but as others have experienced, the cookies kept opening up. Eventually, I just gave up, and used the make thumbprint style cookies instead.

Cranberry Orange Bread
I improvised a little bit with this recipe, and it turned out great! I had fresh cranberries and mandarin oranges on hand, so I used those (cutting the cranberries in half, and the oranges into small pieces). I also substituted orange flavored greek yogurt for the sour cream, and added about a half cup of white chocolate chips. For the most part, the white chocolate chips melted and just about disappeared into the bread, but they gave it a really great flavor. I didn't have any orange extract, so I just used some zest from one of my oranges.
