About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love to experiment and try new recipes.... I love making Stuffed Artichokes, My version of Bruschetta, chicken, ribs. I love to bake
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up I remember, Stuffed Artichokes, Homemade Pierogies and Pasties. Poppy seed Bread and Raisin Bread from scratch! My mother's pasta sauce was a Sunday staple! We always had pasta every Sunday for dinner. Every year around Christmas time, I would bake with my dad, cookies, cream puffs, fancy cakes.... I miss him.
My cooking tragedies
2 weeks ago, I was making cornish game hens in a pyrex dish when it shattered all over.

Roasted Pears with Caramel Sauce
My husband and I went to Lancaster for Easter. At the bed and breakfast we stayed in, our hosts made roasted pears for breakfast which my husband loved. We tried this recipe with a few minor alterations. We used light brown sugar, drizzled the pears with lemon juice, added 1 1/4 tspn of vanilla and peeled, cored and halved the pears. We roasted them at 350 degrees and cut the bake time down 10 minutes. The last 10 minutes we added chopped almonds and basted the pears and almonds with the caramel syrup. It was wonderful! I ate mine as is, but my DH ate his with Cherry Vanilla Ice Cream. I will use a little less sugar next time but this is a keeper. I feel its a 5 start review, since I changed the recipe, I can not give it anything less.

Mini Cheesecakes
My husband liked these, but I did not. They stuck to the paper cups and they seemed to burn around the wafter.... Not like NY Cheesecake at all. They do look nice on my holiday platters but I do not think I will make these again.

Strawberry Cream Roll
This came out perfect! I added two tablespoons of lemon juice to the cake batter. I also made more 1/2 more of the filling. I added two tablespoons of sugar to the filling mixture instead of one. It was perfect! I am going to make a bunch of these for Christmas Gifts for the office.
