About this Cook
At the moment I live in TX with my husband but I was born and raised in Slovakia. Therefore my taste is quite influenced by strong tastes of paprika, mixed spices and different types of cheeses. We also make a lot of meals out of flour seasoned with poppy seeds, cottage cheese, flied bread crumbs..etc. I like to experiment and impress my husband who became my no.1 guinny pig. I like white meat and fish but lean mainly toward vegetarian recipes to my husband's dismay. He is American so I am still working on steaks and meat in general. Hope to find more help here.

Garlic Red Potatoes
The best red potatoes I ever had! I prepared this recipe as a side dish for the Chicken Breasts Stuffed with Perfection posted by PREGOCOOK.

Chicken Breasts Stuffed with Perfection
When I found this recipe I got very excited. Despite the fact that I did not have most of the ingrediences and tried to make them up myself - it was delicious. I can imagine that when done according the original recipe it rocks! (I made my breadcrumbs mixing plain breadcrumbs, parsley, salt, peper and parmesan. Instead of goat or feta cheese I cut tiny cubes of mozzarela cheese and mixed it with sour cream. I also did not have Italian dressing so I made my own following one of the recipes posted on All recipes) As a side dish I recommend Red Garlic Potatoes posted by MARDI1030. It went perfectly together. If you have kids that like canned fruit - try to serve it with tangerines :-) Yummi

Cod au Gratin
Being more into white meat and fish rather than red meat I decided to test this recipe. I loved it and I was THE CHEF of the family! I recommend it for everyone who puts fish on the table weekly! I added more cheese to make it crunchier....yummy
