Love creating in the kitchen. There is nothing more satisfying than that triumphant feeling when something turns out exactly as it was supposed it... except of course when it all disappears into the mouths of hungry friends & family!
My favorite things to cook
Apple crisp, soups, one-pot meals, hearty and wholesome (and healthy!) dinners
My favorite family cooking traditions
As a little girl, baking at my grandmother's side, learning traditional Czechoslovakian dishes and learning to speak Czech!
My cooking triumphs
Baking something my granny used to make when I was a girl, and having it taste just like I remember.
My cooking tragedies
A lemon meringue pie that left me in tears on my kitchen floor... and a "tested and true" potato dish that has me irritated and impatient with a house full of hungry guests.
