About this Cook
I'm newly married and just learning how to cook for two (instead of scrounge around the refrigerator to feed myself, like I've done for the last ten years). I live in a small town in Utah but love to travel to Europe and all over the U.S.
My favorite things to cook
I love to do anything in a slow cooker, canning and making cakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom is originally from the Czech Republic and I have so many memories of traditional Czech dinners at the holidays but I especially love the cookies my mom would always make for us to make into plates for our friends and neighbors.
My cooking triumphs
It's a triumph any time my husband doesn't say "This is good, honey, but maybe next time you could/not...."
My cooking tragedies
The first time I made banana bread I read the recipe wrong and instead of 2 teaspoons of salt, I added 2 tablespoons of salt. Not good.

Zucchini Soup II
I have made this twice and we loved it both times! I even froze half the batch this last time so I can have it after I have my baby. I haven't used celery either time and it's been fine, I just use more zucchini and carrots. I prefer to grate them with my KitchenAid attachment rather than dice them because they seem to cook faster. I use butter instead of margarine and Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. I don't drink so I have never used the wine. I used dried onion because that's what I had and added 2 teaspoons of garlic powder and a pinch of sea salt to help bring out the flavors a tad. So good!!!

Hudson's Baked Tilapia with Dill Sauce
Really, really, really good. I've made this as is, and it is fantastic. We really like to put the sauce over mashed potatoes and serve it with steamed carrots on the side. Great recipe.

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff
Wow! This was great and so easy. I didn't have a packet of Italian dressing so I just seasoned it liberally with Mrs. Dash's original blend (probably a tablespoon or so) and added 2 Tbs. of margarine. It was fantastic over egg noodles.
