About this Cook
I'm a mother of two boys, so life is pretty hectic! Keeping up with them keeps me fit, and it seems that there is rarely a dull moment in my home.
My favorite things to cook
Anything that wows my family!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Chicken fricasee with dumplings. It's a must-have for every family dinner at my mother's. I don't think my brothers and I could ever get enough of it.
My cooking triumphs
Perfecting my apple pie! My famous lasagna, and super messy shepherd's pie. Two meals my family often begs for.
My cooking tragedies
My pitiful attempt at bread pudding, and dull, boring, tasteless pie dough (that I have since perfected)

Heavenly Shortbread
I've tried many different shortbread recipes, some from this site, and some that were suggested by friends - none turned out quite as well as this one! This was so so SO easy to make - I rolled out the dough and used cookie cutters and they turned out perfectly! I did add a touch of vanilla, and baked them for 8-10 minutes depending on how thick the cut outs were, and they were by far the best shortbread cookies I've ever made. Thank you for sharing this really easy, delicious recipe!

Chocolate Brownies
These were terrific! Although they looked really heavy they were actually very light! Recipe was very easy to make, my two boys helped me bake them, and enjoyed that they could do most of the work! Will definitely try this again.

Perogie Casserole
This is a great basic recipe, because it leaves so much room for modifications! I used ricotta cheese instead of cottage cheese, I also just boiled and mashed my taters instead of roasting them. Cut the bacon up and crumbled it on top as opposed to layering strips across the top. I fried one red onion in butter for the top...then when it came out of the oven I scattered chopped green onions on top and drizzled sour cream on top. To me green onions and sour cream go hand in hand with perogies and bacon. The whole family loved it, even the kids wanted seconds!
