About this Cook
I like to cook I just wish I had someone else who would do the planning, shopping, and cleaning up part of it! I think I would really enjoy working for a caterer and learning new ways to combine flavors, etc. Most of my cooking efforts are for dinner during the week and I don't really enjoy baking.
My favorite things to cook
I really don't have any special meal that I like to cook, just anything that I know is really good because I've made it before...breakfast casserole on Christmas morning, etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is Hungarian and I have just started to integrate those recipes into my family. I appreciate my heritage much more now than I did growing up. I want to pass that down to my kids.
My cooking triumphs
When I cook a meal, whether it is my creation or a recipe, I'm hoping that it will taste good, be a healthy alternative to fast food, and create an environment that makes my family happy. When we are all enjoying the meal and talking and laughing, that to me is a cooking triumph.
My cooking tragedies
When I first got married I didn't know how to cook much. I would try to pick recipes that sounded good but often it just turned out blah and it was a waste of time/money. I found allrecipes in 11/2003 and have been using it ever since!

Three Berry Pie
Very good, simple recipe. I also used the additional tablespoon of cornstarch. It was soggy crust.

Doggie Birthday Cake
Made for my puppy's 1st birthday...he and his friends devoured them. I made as "pupcakes" and the recipe yielded 8.
