About this Cook
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.

Bread Machine Pizza Dough
The dough for this pizza crust turned out SO NICE! I heated my pizza stone in the oven first and floured my hands and rolling pin and formed the edge into a sturdy crust you could really hang on to. The texture was incredible and was a nice compliment to the veggies I sliced thin with a mandoline. The beer I used was an Alexander Kieth's India Pale Ale, but next time I would like to try a more "stout" beer. Hmmm, there is more sauce, pepperoni and cheese in my fridge... guess I'll need to get to the LC and try it again in a couple days!

Flaky Food Processor Pie Crust
My first time making pie crust was using this recipe. I did as another reviewer suggested and put my butter and shortening in the flour and put the whole bowl in the freezer to chill. It didn't turn out pretty, but it was freaking delicious!! I need to make this a few more times because I'm sure with practice, it'll get better! I didn't once touch the dough with my bare hands as suggested and I'm glad because I can see how it could change the dough!

Apple Crisp II
So I monkeyed with the ingredient amounts a bit to suit the preferences of my family, but the basic "bones" of this recips are perfect the way they are. I double the topping and put everything in a big 9x13 casserole dish. Try this... play with the amounts. You will love it too!
