My favorite things to cook
Spaghetti and homemade meatballs. Lovely with caesar salad and toasted garlic bread with melted cheese.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Potato and cheddar cheese perogies.
Vegetable and dill Russian Borscht.
Nuts and Bolts (Chex mix) at Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
Autumn Cheesecake (apples and pecans or walnuts on top). I made this cheesecake for several Christmases in a row and the family raved about it.
My cooking tragedies
Autumn Cheesecake! I got a new stove and that cheesecake never turned out again! I found it would not cook properly in the middle but would overcook on the outside. I experimented with time and temperature on many cheesecakes after this but never achieved success again. I have recently gotten another stove and intend on trying this cheesecake this Christmas.
