About this Cook
Growing up in the South with a large extended family I was always at my grandmom's knee learning the typical southern fare. Leave it to me to marry a Polish guy from NY who defines "home cooking" in a totally different light!
My favorite things to cook
I love making stews and experimenting with my crockpot!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother makes the most wonderful dressing for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I've yet to make one as great as hers.
My cooking triumphs
My husband loves Cajun and Creole cooking after our many trips to New Orleans. For his birthday I made a Crawfish Etouffee and he loved it! After dinner he said, "I never thought you could do it but it was as good as any I've had".
My cooking tragedies
I once made a Fritata for my husband that he still refers to years later as "that awful Frito thing!".

Guinness(R) Corned Beef
Delicious! I'm a corned beef lover normally but this exceeded my expectations. The only changes I made were to place the meat into the beer while cooking and add one beef bouillion cube. I did baste everything a couple times during cooking after I added the veggies. I'll be adding this into the regular dinner rotation since it's too good to make only once a year!

Broccoli Casserole
This was tasty. I used fresh steamed broccoli instead of frozen, substituted worchestershire for the lemon juice and put Italian seasoned panko bread crumps on top because those are what I had in the pantry. A great side for any night. I'm sure the addition of chicken would make this a filling main dish also.

Cocktail Meatballs
For me this recipe lacked a little something although most of my guests enjoyed it.
