About this Cook
I love my husband and I love to cook... my husband loves me, and loves to eat. My life is perfect. We keep a blog to entertain our distant family, often times we share cooking stories. Feel free to snoop: tomisko.wordpress.com
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook anything that produces smiles.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have a multi-cultural home, so we create new traditions everyday.
My cooking triumphs
I turn my tragedies into triumphs... I forgot a cup of flour in my cookie recipe and ended up with flattened mush. I put the nine dysfunctional cookies into a bowl, mashed them up with cream cheese, then rolled them into balls with a coating of powdered sugar and then refridgerated them :-) Welcome to the world my little "Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake Balls"!! They were wonderful, and the story is great.
My cooking tragedies
Again involving cookies... I thought freezing frosting into balls and wrapping it in cookie dough would result in a frosting filled cookie. haha, not the case. The cookies essentially exploded and got stuck to the cookie sheet... they did taste good though ;-)

Delicious Salmon
Served with white rice, and a stir fry of red pepper, white onion, and zucchini. I didn't let my broiler hit the heat it needed to... in the future I will go safe with 350 for 12-15 and check it at the 12 minute mark so I don't end up with dry fish. Anyway, loved the flavor. Will use leftovers in a salad with mandarin oranges, cashews, an orange vinaigrette and green onions. nom nom nom...

Buttery Alfredo Sauce
This ruined store bought Alfredo for me. I love LOVE this. Super picky baby brother ate it too :-) I will store this in my "oh, yea. I make everything from scratch" brag bag . Thanks for the recipe :-)

Chocolate Revel Bars
Loved these, but they never seem to be the most popular sweet at a pot luck because they are sooooo rich. Even my 2 year old couldn't finish his brownie sized square.
