I'm 30 years old and married with 2 beautiful girls. I work in a Dental office, which I love!!!
I've been cooking and baking since I was 8 years old, and still get the same thrill today as I did 22 years ago!
My favorite things to cook
Anything Ukranian! Baking is my first love of food, though! I'm the one that everyone goes to for recipe ideas, food pairings, baking needs, etc. This past Christmas, I made Vinatarte for the first time, and it was amazing!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pyrishky, sauerkraut perogies, Custard Ball Cookies, Imperial cookies, My ever-versatile secret cake recipe. These recipes I cannot love without! I grew up on all of them, my mom and Grandma taught me then, and I will be passing them down to my children as well. Christmas and Easter are huge festivities in our house, so the more food and people, the better!
My cooking triumphs
Hmmm, My best triumph was when I made Tofu Alfredo. My husband and kids were none-the-wiser. It is a favorite in my household now, and pretty big on the request list!
My cooking tragedies
Oh my, that would have to be the cheesecake recipe that a friend of mine gave me that was apparently "to die for". right it was to die for, I slaved away at it, only for it to turn out like ! I tossed that recipe in the garbage well before the oven had time to cool down!
