I love to cook, bake, and create new dishes for my family to enjoy. I feel great when I think of a new recipe, then create it, and watch everyone enjoy it (including myself).
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook almost anything. Even though I don't eat red meat, I still create new thinks to do with it. The people who do eat it then give me their opinions on the recipes. I also enjoy cooking italian, mexican, and chinese dishes. Desserts too!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother makes these polish cream cheese cookies right before Christmas time every year. They are really yummy. She also makes great stuffed cabbage, as well as hungarian goolash. My brother has a couple of great recipes that my family also enjoys. They are garlic string beans and garlic marinated portabello mushroom. He also has a wonderful creamy tomato vodka sauce for pasta. (He went to chef school, and has many, many others...these are just a couple).
My cooking triumphs
I think that I have wonderful eggplant parmasian. I also make a very tasty fried apple dessert. It's a great recipe for the fall time.
My cooking tragedies
I hate to admit it, but when I was younger (about 15 years old), I nearly burned down my kitchen. I was preparing to make french fries on the stove(frozen), and just as I started melting the grease in the pot, my phone rang. I ran into the living room and ended up being on the phone for about 10 minutes. When I went back into the kitchen, there was a huge fire on the stove. It was a very embarrassing experience.
