I'm very experimental in the kitchen. It all started when I was going to make something or other & didn't have the right ingredients, so I substituted. I found that it would come out VERY good. The only problem was I would forget what I substituted with.
My favorite things to cook
European & other national dishes
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm Slovakian, so I learned by watching & helping my Mom to cook. When I got older I feared the old traditional recipes would be lost if my Mom passed away, so I asked her how to make some of my favorites. I got the recipe but no measurement amounts. She would just say, eg. add the flour until it looks right.
My cooking triumphs
Cabbage rolls, Halushki (Potato noodles tossed with fried sauerkraut, onion & bacon) & Our own Potato Soup!Yum-Yum!
