About this Cook
I'm an American who moved to Russia last year & am trying to adjust my cooking accordingly. Many ingredients I always used in America simply aren't available here but Russia has many ingredients I have never seen before, too. So I'm expanding my cooking range, hopefully.
My favorite things to cook
I don't know if I have any favorites. Anything that makes the people I cook for happy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cleaning as you cook. My mom taught me that & I've found it an extremely handy habit.
My cooking triumphs
I have made some killer Thanksgiving dinners over the years.
My cooking tragedies
I am terrible at cakes & pastries. I'm semi-infamous for some pathetic birthday cakes but that doesn't stop me from keeping trying!

Peach Bread
I was wondering what to do with some peaches that were a bit past their prime so I made this. It was a huge hit! And very easy. Thanks so much for this recipe.

Potato Latkes II
These were delicious! My mother is visiting & had a hankering for latkes when we were in Germany but we couldn't find any there. I tried these at home & she loved them! I live in Russia & could not find matzo meal but bread crumbs worked perfectly fine. There were only three of us eating & I was afraid I'd made way too many (I just used all the potatoes we had in our home) but they were all instantly gone! Thank you very much for this recipe.
