About this Cook
Saving money and creating great food at home. My goal is to not put any food in my mouth that doesn't taste great!
My favorite things to cook
Mexican, Chinese (very non traditional variety). Really just started to make Indian food at home and I love it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Polish food. Fat, high carb and delicious.
My cooking triumphs
Made better crepes than my husband. Which is his favorite.
My cooking tragedies
High altitude baking is TOUGH!! My chocolate cookies at sea level were great. Now, they usually get rock hard after the first day.

The Ultimate Brownie
Made this with 5 eggs as others recommended. Used Pecans instead of walnuts because that is what I had. These are chewy, moist, chocolatly, and FABULOUS! I melted the butter in a big bowl in the microwave. Added the sugar, stirred. Mixed rest of dry ingredients together and then stirred into butter/sugar mixture. I put in a 10X10 pan. I think I overcooked a bit because I forgot I put it in a slightly larger pan. (I used really good cocoa powder. Callebaut. Pernigotti is also really nice and that one can be purchased at Williams Sonoma)

Chocolate Cut Out Cookies
Recipe worked out good with no modifications. I chilled my dough overnight and didn't have any issue with sticking. I rolled some out with flour and some with cocoa and powdered sugar. I think the cocoa and powdered sugar is better. Also, the cookies needed salt. They come out a bit flat without it.

Real Chiles Rellenos
The sauce turned out great. I really loved it. But used the sauce on top of a bed of chicken, beans, rice, and greens and it was wonderful! The addition of the little bit of cinnamon was perfect. I tried to make the chiles and I just can't seem to get it right. my chiles were thin and split and there was no way I was going to get them fried. So I buttoned them up the best I could and then sprinkled panko breading on top and put them in the oven for about 8 min to melt the cheese and crisp the panko. Aside from the Hatch green chiles(which may be my problem) being REALLY SPICY, they turned out well. Highly recommend the panko breading on top. No frying needed and still has the crunch.
