My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. It fills the house with such great smells. And it's really cute to see my husband get so excited about a fresh batch of oatmeal raisin cookies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I make an lamb cake every year for Easter. (That's a cake shaped like a lamb, not made out of lamb.) It is a Polish tradition we always had when I was a child. I inherited the lamb-shaped mold for the cake from my great-aunt, and Easter wouldn't be the same without it.
My cooking tragedies
I cannot make fish to save my life. I can make anything else and have it come out great, but even if I follow the recipe to a T, my fish always comes out blah, and sometimes just plain bad. I've given up and started buying pre-seasoned fresh fish fillets at the grocery store.
