I have been married for three years. Currently live in PA with my husband and our two boston terrier dogs. I am a social worker so when I get home I like to cook things that are relatively easy and stress free. My husband and I do tend to go out a lot to eat so Im not that great of a cook or very experienced. I love to travel, the best place Ive been to is Jamaica but Im looking forward to a trip to Italy one day to have great Italian food!
My favorite things to cook
I like to make lasagna that my mom taught me how to make. I also was inspired by a recipe I had at a restaurant so I tried to make it at home. Its puff pastry with chicken, mozzarella, and chive cream cheese. Thats about as fancy as I get when it comes to dinner. I love making cookies and baked goods for my county fair as well.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is Ukranian so for Christmas eve we always eat homemade pieroghi, bread and sourkraut soup. That is a tradition I hope to continue with my own family one day. My mother also bakes a ham but you cannot have that until after midnight mass! :)
My cooking triumphs
I guess my many championships that I have won via the days I was a 4-Her with my baked goods..including chocolate chip cookies, drop cookies, yeast bread, bannana nut bread/muffins, and coffee cake.
My cooking tragedies
Right after my husband and I got married I was making some sort of dinner where I was using multiple pans. I accidently turned on one of the burners and set a pyrex dish on it, obviously not paying attention! A few minutes later it exploded all over the kitchen. Luckily I and the dogs at my feet were unharmed...I cant say the same for the pyrex dish or the carpet that glass landed on. Luckily I got a new kitchen floor out of the deal!
