I've been married to the best husband for over five years and we have a little girl born in March 2007. We are living in my husband's home country of Poland for a year and then will return home to Texas. We miss our favorite Mexican food in Texas and I try to recreate many dishes here, although there is a lack of familiar ingredients!
My favorite things to cook
I cook banana bread at least once a week because my husband loves it so much. I love to add chocolate chips too! I like to cook migas, pancakes, pasta, and my best recipe is my chocolate amaretto cheese cake! I love to entertain and have friends over for weekly dinners and to try out new recipes. I usually make something new instead of trying something I already know how to make. It makes it more interesting that way!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love the holidays when everyone gets together and the food is so good. We always have cornbread dressing, home made yeast rolls, desserts galore, and just good times together. I am enjoying adding my husband's Polish traditions to mine for a multi-heritage holiday season.
My cooking triumphs
My husband loves my banana bread so that is a triumph, because he is a very picky eater in addition to being a vegan.
My cooking tragedies
I made a cornbread dressing here in Poland to share with our family and it was very dense and flat. The flavor was good however and everyone loved the taste. I think they are used to vegetable pates here and it was so dense, it was similar to those.
