My favorite things to cook
I love to cook traditional European dishes. Mostly from the Slavic and German regions. I will venture into Italian dishes. I mostly prefer northern Italian cuisine.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Aside from my father and his mother, noone in my family cooks. I learned to cook when I lived in Europe for 4 years. There you purchase you dinner foods daily and fresh. Making sauces from simple ingrediants, but they were so delicious and I brought this way of cooking home with me. Why by canned when you can make it fresh?
My cooking triumphs
Every time I make something new from this site that I have never tried before feels like a triumph.
My cooking tragedies
My tragedies usually involve me walking away from the food and coming back to a stove that was turned up to high to find my food sticking to the bottom of the pan.
