About this Cook
Come from a Lithuanian background raised in the living in SC. Love to cook, entertain, enjoy fine dining. Fell in love with Southern cooking now. Good & fattening, makes it all the better. Paula Dean is my idol for that! Watching Julia Child on TV made me start cooking French.
My favorite things to cook
Anything that's edible. Don't bake, but will try anything from any culture; but I never the recipe the same way twice!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Getting back to traditional Lithuanian/Polish cooking recipes (in honor of my Mother). I'm the one in the family who wrote down all her recipes! Love to have "Theme" dinners. Ethic foods were part of my growing up in a multi-ethnic area.
My cooking triumphs
Long ago entered a Pumpkin soup recipe and it got published in a local newspaper!! Think I'm one of the better cooks in my realm of friends....cook dinner every night, no take out.
My cooking tragedies
Made some shrimp turnover recipe that I saw in a local paper. Sat down to eat it with hubby and took a few bites....we looked up at one another and he grimaced....I said, "You start the car; I'll call the Chinese restaurant for take-out." Thank goodness I didn't have company that night! It was terrible.

Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker
Great recipe. I skipped the soy sauce (salt!) because the soup has a ton. I added a bay leaf; put slivers of fresh garlic poked in all over the roast, then chopped, fresh mushrooms. I started on high, but lowered it to low after two hrs. Thickened gravy with corn starch & water last five mins. It was mouthwatering. Served mashed potatoes, glazed carrots, and steamed, fresh broccoli. This will be made again! P.S. I put in a 2 lb. roast, I should have cooked 3 lbs. Almost no leftovers!

Wisconsin Bratwurst
This was not great. I browned the onions & brats. I added a lot of carroway seed + pepper + a jar of drained sauerkraut. The brats broke, so I couldn't/wouldn't grill them. I think it would be better with a kielbasa or linguesa.

Chorizo and Lentil Stew
Geez, I did not like this at all...I made huge additions: carrots, diced onions,coriander,all spice, lemon juice, nutmeg, small potatoes and a can of beef broth. 3 cups of water could NOT feed 4 people. I added 5 + the broth! I must say after ALL these additions, I would give it 4***, but it just was good on its own....
