My favorite things to cook
Anything I can make from ingredients on hand. I prefer to experiment rather than follow recipes, but sometimes recipes are needed, too!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I like to make Polish food that my grandmother made when I was younger. I also like making some dishes that I've made up since I've been married.
My cooking triumphs
Dozens and dozens of kolacky made in one day. It was quite a challenge and hard work, but I managed to do it.
My cooking tragedies
There have been ruined dishes and desserts, but I've learned from them.
Newest one: our oven stopped working, and I already had brownie batter in my muffin tin, so I tried the propane grill, using it mostly on medium heat (too high), so we ended up with half-burnt brownies that tasted like they'd been smoked. LOL The unburned insides were good, though!
