The one thing everyone who has ever met me knows... I love cats! My husband and I have 2 of the most beautiful furry babies in the world and we love them more than anything! Even food, which is really saying something!
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE baking!! The only downside is, my husband is not a fan of cookies/pies/muffins/desserts in general, so all the sweets I make I have to eat myself! So it's both a good and a bad thing.
Also, Polish (which I am), Italian (which my husband is), Asian and Mexican foods are all our favorites.
My favorite family cooking traditions
During Christmas, Thanksgiving and Easter my family makes all of our favorite polish dishes along with the staples like turkey and stuffing. We make huge batches of cabbage rolls, pierogies (both potato and blueberry ones), borscht... and my baba's unique apple pie, which is baked in a cookie pan instead of a pie tin with a chewy dough that is absolutely DELICIOUS! I'd eat it every day if I could.
My cooking triumphs
My triumph is a broad one: finally figuring out how to make delicious, flavorful food healthy, low fat AND edible all at the same time. Even desserts, which pleases me to no end. My husband is also a well-fed, very happy man.
My cooking tragedies
Trying to make too many recipes fat free. Just a little bit of fat can go a long way from turning a dish from a disaster to wonderful.
