About this Cook
I love to cook and I love to eat. I started cooking at a young age because I desperately craved cheese sauce for my nachos and gravy for my mashed potatoes. My mom taught me how to make a rue and that's all it took to get me hooked on cooking!
My favorite things to cook
SOUP SOUP SOUP :D My favorite creations are homemade corn chowder and leek and potato. I also really enjoy a vegetarian chili recipe I found on this site.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Both of my parents have Slovak heritage, so we grew up eating delicious foods like Halupki, Pirohi, Halushki, and Bean and Sauerkraut soup.
My cooking triumphs
A bean soup I had in a restaurant inspired me to copy it and I was able to totally nail it! In fact, I thought mine was actually better :)
My cooking tragedies
Tofu. I wish I could make it like they do in asian restaurants, but I haven't been able to master it. I think I'm getting better though with each experiment.

Cold Corn Salsa
Awesome. Full of unique flavor! Love the black eyed peas in this! I left out the celery and used a fresh jalapeno. Delicious as a salad or with chips.

Chicken French - Rochester, NY Style
Just like the restaurant! Was surprised at how nicely the egg batter stayed on the chicken breasts. I doubled the sauce, reduced the butter by half (I like this dish a bit on the lemony side) and added flour to thicken it a bit. Served over fettuccini. Delicious!
