I'm no expert, but I really love to get lost in a recipe and take on cooking challenges that scared me before... My favorite thing is just trying to make delicious dinners and desserts for my husband and myself (and our cat often steals bites).
My favorite things to cook
I like healthy food and try to cook with what is in season. While living in multicultural cities has given me an appreciation for a wide variety of cuisines, the way to my heart will always be through Eastern European and Midwestern foods.
I love making all kinds of soup, especially.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom's traditional Slovak Christmas Eve dinner and Easter morning brunch.
My cooking triumphs
My first attempts at soft pretzels and a strawberry galette were surprisingly successful.
My cooking tragedies
I am terrible at making rice. Seriously!
