I love cooking and experimenting with different ways to create a new dish or an old recipe. My favorite thing is to change 1 or 2 ingredients to see what happens.
My favorite things to cook
I have a mouthful of sweet teeth! My favorites are cakes and cookies. Over the years, some of my mistakes turned out to be favorites. Tortes, pound cakes, and shortbread are fun to experiment with. Did you know that over-baking shortbread by 1 or 2 minutes gives it a bit of a nutty taste?
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mama of Polish descent and many of her dishes are comfort food to me. Being a southern lady, I have many dishes that are my favorites too. My Fried Chicken is to die for. ;)
My cooking triumphs
I have many, such as using browned shortbread as a crust for new york style cheesecakes.
My cooking tragedies
Don't really have a tragedy that comes to mind.
