About this Cook
I don't necessarily like to cook but as a mom, it's a necessary evil made easier due to the fact that my husband does all my shopping.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Polish, that's my comfort food. My grandmother was from Poland and that's the food I grew up with. I think in a prior life I was Mexican because I like food super spicy ala Mexicana!
My cooking triumphs
Having my kids enjoy eating without a fuss. Pulling together a great Christmas Eve dinner by cooking with my husband and having everything done so I can enjoy my company.

Fresh Pineapple Upside Down Cake
Not a fan of pineapple but I like this cake very much. I sub the white flour for wheat flour and double the amount of vanilla. The wheat flour gives the cake more texture and structure.

Snoogy Chicken
Baked up moist but sauce was bland. Precooking, sauce tasted like Open Pit but did not hold up through baking. Won't make it again.

Marinated Baked Pork Chops
Very moist chop. To seal the chops since I had very thick ones, I dipped them in an egg wash and Italian seasoned breadcrumbs. I then browned them in butter and garlic, seasoned them in the pan with salt, pepper and chili powder, before putting them in the baking dish.
