About this Cook
My main interest in the kitchen began with baking, but I'm trying to carefully venture into cooking as well.
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, cakes, bars, anything sweet! The more decadent, the better. I also love experimenting with dinner recipes- soups, chicken dishes, and anything that is tasty without losing nutritional value.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom is a great cook and baker... I grew up with well-rounded meals and fresh baked goods almost daily. The holidays were of course a showcase of so many great and different foods. I'm excited to carry on these traditions and make some of my own.
My cooking triumphs
I'm still pretty new... making anything that is both delicious and presentable is a triumph in itself for me.
My cooking tragedies
Dry cakes, dry chicken. I really need to keep my eye on the timer...

Stuffed Cabbage Rolls
Such a fantastic dish! My husband absolutely loves it. I do add more tomato soup and a can of tomato sauce; we like it saucy. :) Thank you for a keeper!

Garlic Red Potatoes
Absolutely wonnnderful recipe- these will be a go-to side dish from now on. Anyone who is considering skipping the lemon juice- DON'T! It's a huge contribution to these potatoes. I cooked these at 400 and followed every other instruction to a T. Thanks for this recipe!
