My Two Biggest Fans
About this Cook
Hi! My name's Amber, I'm 28 yrs old, and a born-and-raised Rhode Islander (minus a few years in the South). I am the wife of a firefighter/mechanic and mom to 3 rescued black Labradors. I work full-time as a banker, but cooking has been my true passion since I was in my early teens.
My favorite things to cook
I greatly enjoy making and trying foods from different ethnic backgrounds. My personal favorites are Italian, Eastern European (Russian, Lithuanian, etc), Southern and French. Some of my favorite things to cook are shashlik, sirniki, pulled pork, and pasta and meatballs.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from Lithuanian and French Canadian stock, and I have to say my favorite "ethnic" dishes are Cabbage Rolls, POUTINE, Pickles and Pickled Beets, Borscht, Sugar Pie, Dilled Potatoes, and Kugel. I am no longer really a potato person since my nana passed away, I think she weaved magic into hers.
My cooking triumphs
Making an entire EXCELLENT Mexican dinner for my husband and I, from scratch, for less than 75 cents per serving. Also, homemade Pumpkin Bars and Brownies are nice.
My cooking tragedies
I fail at making frosting. It either turns out rock-like or super runny.

Stuffed Pork Chops III
A very good recipe, the only way I will ever eat stuffed pork chops! I tweaked it slightly in the following ways: sautee the onions in the butter before adding then to the stuffing, and add Marsala wine to the beef adds a special touch of flavor!
