Redhead mood
About this Cook
Love to cook, I consider it one of my hobbies. I relax in the kitchen and consider cooking my art and therapeutic activity at the same time. I never cook in a bad mood, because the food won't turn out good. Can easily make a meal from scratch out of whatever I find in the fridge and out of it lol And I try to avoid those ready to go broths and cake mixes and such. There's nothing better than a meal made from scratch using real ingredients.
My favorite things to cook
Currently I'm in my Mexican phase and my fav are enchiladas. And I'm trying out numerous variations of wraps, with chicken and veg mostly. Also love to cook soups and anything with chicken.
My favorite family cooking traditions
For main family holiday gatherings we almost always make baked boneless pork chops topped with mayo and cheese on a thick layer of onions. Yum!
My cooking triumphs
I make amazing folded omelets. And pancakes. And french toast. And lasagna. And meat solyanka soup. And so many other things lol :D
My cooking tragedies
In the mood for pancakes for breakfast I came across a recipe of something called Pfannkuchen or German pancakes. Reading the recipe got me suspicious but I decided to go through with it... All I can say is EW. Waste of time and eggs. And a big disappointment.

Lentil Soup with Lemon
Made this soup yesterday and absolutely loved it! Cumin adds this nice flavor, though I used seeded cumin, not ground. I soaked dry lentils for 2 hours in warm water before putting them in the pot and the cooking time was just under 30 minutes. Thanks for this amazing treat!
