About this Cook
I am a busy mom of 2 - I have a 7 year old that eats anything I give her and a 6 year old that is so picky, it's hard to please him. I am always trying to come up with something that will satisfy them both and keep them quiet at the table :)
My favorite things to cook
I cook anything that is fast, easy, and Kosher! I tend to lean more towards Russian and Mediterranean cooking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
we create new traditions daily!
My cooking triumphs
I make the best Borsh! Everyone who tells me they don't like, but then try mine, keep asking for seconds!

Eclair Cake
I used Chocolate tea biscuits - I dipped each one in a cup of hot coffee and then lined them up as the recipe calls - I used about 5 packages of those tea biscuits - on the final row, I ended up not covering it with another layer of the crackers, instead I left the pudding uncovered, and crumbled the remaining crackers and sprinkled the crumbs on top, I also added some chopped walnuts and chocolate chip cookies, and then I made zig-zag lines with Chocolate syrup (the one that you use for Ice cream) - covered it and stuffed it in the fridge over night - in the morning we had it with coffee - so delicious!

Moroccan Mashed Potatoes
I added 2 onions instead of one, and instead of 1/2 teaspoon of cumin, I did 1 and a 1/2 and oh boy - this was really worth 5 stars! So delicious.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I
Yum! I think that there is way too much butter for this recipe. I am eating a cookie as I type and the butter overpowers the rest of the ingredients. it's a good dessert with Coffee!
