About this Cook
I work in the education field and am going back to school for more degrees. Yay. More student loan debt.
My favorite things to cook
I really enjoy putting bento boxes (traditional Japanese lunch boxes) together to take to work. I like comparing my American creations against those of the traditional Japanese type.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love making the traditional Croatian pastry potica, which has been handed down in my family for generations. Its great to try new twists on the old classics; strawberry and cheese filling over the traditional apple.
My cooking triumphs
Any desserts. I will and do cook chocolate to perfection. Any time, any place.
My cooking tragedies
Having a brother who is a chef is a great tragedy. Oh the criticism...

Blueberry Gingerbread
I got so many compliments on this! It turned out really moist and flavor-filled. Some at work ate it with cream cheese, which was also delicious.

Mom's Peas and Noodles
This was fast, easy, and good. The trifecta. I could definitely see adding some chicken though, to give just a little more flavor. Also, I added in some extra frozen veggies I had.

Marshall Islands Macadamia Nut Pie
This was ok. The topping needs some more flavor, and my crust burned a little. Everyone else loved it though. I also substituted different nuts, using what I had on hand.
