About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake- muffins, loafs, breads. Anything I can stick in the oven and have it come out yummy also is good.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We make our family pierogies and I love that.
My cooking triumphs
I'm famous for my pumpkin bread and other loaves. I would have to say that baking is definitley my strong suit.
My cooking tragedies
Well, a very public tragedy when I made soup for soup day at work - and my cayenne pepper flowed a little to fast. I tried to fix it with more potatoes, more water, more tomatoes, cream etc. Nothing could fix it. I couldn't even it. It sucks becasue this was a new workplace for me and I was trying to make a good impression and I failed miserably.

Tuna Noodle Casserole from Scratch
This was awesome! I cut down a little bit on the butter. I added some of the cheese to the sauce mixture and used crush up croutons for the topping with no butter. Was looking for ultimate comfort food and this was it! Took a little work but worth it for the lower fat and sodium I was looking for since I used skim milk and light cheese. Will definitley make again!

Roasted Butternut Squash and Garlic Lasagna
This was really good! I did modifications to make it lower fat. I used skim milk instead of reagular milk and only used about 3 cups. I also left out the cream step and I think that would have made it over the top rich so I am glad I didn't use it. I added a layer of spinach and also chopped up some onion that I added to the butternut mixture. I didn't have enough parmesan so I added skim milk mozzarella. I also added some nutmeg and thank goodness I did because it would have been super bland without it. I pre-soaked my noodles and that worked super well. My husband did not like it, but it would be a fantastic treat for guests as it is tasty and filling, but not too rich.
