About this Cook
I'm married and the mother of 3 active teens. I stopped working when we moved to the Czech Republic, and that has given me more time for cooking. Learning the differences at the grocery store keeps it challenging.
My favorite things to cook
Homemade meatball subs, chicken fried rice, and soups have been favored things to cook lately.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Family dinners are when all my brothers and sisters gather at our father's home. Fresh kielbasa at Easter, Polish Meatballs at Christmas, and Charlotte Russe as a birthday cake. Well worth the drive!
My cooking triumphs
Stuffed lasagne rolls, perogies from this site, and homemade tortillas (also from this site) are the things I'm most proud of making.
My cooking tragedies
I try to put the tragedies behind me, and vow never to speak of them again.

Lola's Horchata
I've spent most my life in Arizona, and horchata is so good on a hot day. This recipe is tasty and so easy! I've made it as written (make sure you use whole milk for best flavor), and have also made it with vanilla soy milk (VERY yummy!). I add the cinnamon to the rice before seams to incorporate into the liquid better that way, instead of floating on the top. I don't know how well this keeps in the refrigerator, because there's never any left over! Thank you Lola for the recipe.

Slovak Sauerkraut Christmas Soup
This is absolutely full of flavor! I'm living in the Czech Republic at the moment, and it tastes just like the soup served in my favorite local restaurant. The only change I made was to substitute cream for sour cream, as it was what I had on hand. Thank you for the recipe.

Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches
Never having been in Chicago, and having never had an Italian Beef Sandwich, I have nothing to compare this to, but this recipe definitely makes an amazingly tasty sandwich! Following some suggestions, I used two packages of Italian Dressing mix, added some pepperoncinis, and used a chuck roast for easier shredding. My kids and I ate it on a hoagie roll with some of the "juice" to dip, but my husband broiled it with some sliced provolone, and claimed it awesome that way as well. Thanks for the recipe.
