About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. My family has a huge sweet tooth so nothing with sugar lasts very long around here. I also like making soups in the colder months. The only things I'm not good at are the grill and pancakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We're Polish American so any traditional Polish food rate big in our family.
My cooking triumphs
My very first cheesecake didn't crack ... I was impressed with myself. There was also this amazing 3 layer carrot cake that I took no shortcuts with and worked on for nearly 8 hours.
My cooking tragedies
A 3 layer cake cracked down the middle and fell apart 20 minutes before the party. The above mentioned carrot cake was attacked by ants - thankfully we had all enjoyed a piece before the rest had to go in the trash.

Pumpkin Apple Streusel Muffins
YUM! I used unpacked brown sugar in place of the white sugar, added 1tsp baking powder, used apple sauce in place of oil, used 3 cups apple chunks, and skipped the streusel (I hate making streusel). Made 12 large muffins. Baked at 350 for 30 mins but next time I'd take them out at 25 mins.

White Almond Wedding Cake
I used this recipe for my birthday cake. I used Chobani plain 0% instead of sour cream (no one in my family likes sour cream in a cake), all almond extract, and added a packet of instant vanilla pudding. I made a 4 layer (2 8 inch rounds) and filled and topped it will a simple almond buttercream. Everyone loved it! This is a keeper!

Banana Cake II
Made this cake today using 1c white sugar and 1/2c brown sugar. Everything else I used was as the recipe stated. I find the cake to be rather bland and dry. I topped it with a coconut cream cheese frosting, which make it eatable, but I won't be making this again.
