About this Cook
I am a flight attendant and love to take as many cooking classes in as many different areas as possible. I like to experiment with all ingredients and no recipe sounds strange to me ... I will try anything!
My favorite things to cook
Indonesian/Asian are my favorites because I find the flavor of the spices so interesting.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up with the traditional Polish/Italian foods but when I moved to California my interest in other cultures broadened my cooking practices.
My cooking triumphs
Learning to make homemade tamales, mole chicken and finding a recipe for Laksa (Indonesian soup which I absolutely crave). Also entertaining for gatherings including vegans and non vegetarians at the same time.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to mention but some were recipe related!

Chef John's Classic Beef Stroganoff
This was by far the best and simplest stroganoff recipe I have ever made with amazing results! I followed the recipe exactly as stated and only added a sprinkle of worcestershire sauce to flavor the meat. I will be making this again soon!

Shredded Potato Quiche
I used 3 raw potatoes and shredded them added some shredded red onio sea salt/peper and 2 T of flour to potato mixture patted on bottom of pie plate and drizzled with olive oil and baked 20 minutes at 400. Then I put one can of artichoke hearts halved on the bottom and them 10 diced greek olives over chokes and then poured egg mixture over and placed sliced tomotoes on top with feta cheese. Divine! Bake another 20 minutes at 375. I did add some garlic powder to egg mixture and 1 t. itailan seasoning.
