I have been cooking since I was 10 years old and my mom had carpal tunnel surgery on her hands and could not do it herself. We also never had a lot of money so I learned to be creative with very little but successful meals made me love cooking from that early age. I now have 3 kids of my own and provide day care for 2 more.
My favorite things to cook
I love creating different pasta dishes and have recently tried my hand at chilli which was a huge hit - even my 9 year old loves it. I also love to bake cookies and desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My maternal heritage is Ukrainian so the homemade perogies, cabbage rolls, and coutia are my favourites. Christmas tradition include a great,easy recipe for Sugar Plums which I have submitted.
