About this Cook
I joined this site to help make my life a little more interesting and diverse in the food department. I'm tired of the same old meals and has opened a door to a more interesting way to cook the same foods I've had my whole life.
My favorite things to cook
Pasta salads. I love to try out new combinations of flavorings and sauces.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family has their traditions with the holidays and it's pretty simple to duplicate .. crown pork, string beans, etc. My in-law family are all fabulous Polish cooks - I don't even try to cook like they did ... it never quite turns out how they remember.
My cooking triumphs
Usually, when I try out a new recipe, I'm pretty lucky and everyone loves it. Only because I'm trying something new and they've never had before!
My cooking tragedies
Too many early food tragedies to remember.

Easy Garlic Escargots
Mixed snails with some salad shrimp. Since no one allergic to seafood in my family, I didn't tell them what the mushrooms were stuffed with and they still loved them when they found out. Very filling. Used larger mushrooms than buttons.

Asparagus with Sliced Almonds and Parmesan Cheese
Turned out nice-everyone liked-even kids. We enjoyed fresh and full (but not too thick) sprouts and added a dash of bacon (Hormel) for flavoring.
