About this Cook
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!

Swedish Cream Wafers
This was a wonderful addition to my cookie repertoire. Instead of rolling my cookies out on a floured board, I rolled them out on a sugar sprinkled board. This eliminated the extra flour.

Nairobi Chocolate Cake
DELISH! Made this today just as written. I used my homemade chocolate buttercream icing to go with it. My husband wants this cake for his birthday & any other time I'm looking to bake something. "efzed", do you have any other treats that we might find scrumptious?

Cabbage Rolls II
One reviewer says to freeze the cabbage head to wilt it. DO NOT do this. You will end up with very tough and chewy leaves no matter how long you cook them. Also if you do them in the oven put a layer of the outer leaves on the bottom to keep the rolls from turning dark or burning. If you cut the spines off the leaves you can use these also for the bottom.
