About this Cook
My name is Alena. I am 22 yr old woman. Momma to a beautiful little boy *(born 6.20.10)*. Living as a family with and head over heals in love with my best friend, boyfriend and baby's father.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook anything. Lately it's healthy. I joined Weight Watchers to loose the baby weight. *30LBs down; 30LBs to go*
My favorite family cooking traditions
Home made chicken soup on the holidays. More food than you know what to do with on the holidays lol! I grew up with cooking. I learned from my Dad. I plan to teach my son :)
My cooking triumphs
Learning my Great-Grandmother's secret recipe for Old-fashion Jewish Chicken Soup :))! Learning to make Stew (just last week). Learning to bake bread (I <3 Challah)
My cooking tragedies
An attempt at a "quick" chicken soup (boullion cube, water, onion, carrot, celery + seasonings) YUK. My first attempt at a stew UGH (I procrastinated another attempt for over a year! And "Angry Cookies" I was really pissed and baking chocolate chip cookies and for whatever reason (I probably mis-read my recipe) they came out horrible and greasy and gave everyone a tummy ache :(

Shepherd's Pie I
We loved this. I did make a few little changes: added some fresh garlic and diced carrotts to the meat. And I layered the potatoes on the bottom. Also added some seasonings black pepper, garlic, pinch of curry and a little chilli powder. I also did not use the full cup of cheese. Hubby ate half the pie in one sitting it was so good lol

Pork Dumplings
This was a really good recipe. However the ONLY package of wonton wrappers I could find was a 48 Ct package and it took about 1.2 lb of ground beef. I also did not use cabbage because I didn't have any. However I did follow the rest of the recipe exactly. It seems like a lot of liquid but it is actually perfect. I steamed them for about 15min and they came out WONDERFUL. My bf must have eaten about 30 of them lol. The dipping sauce in one of the reviews was quite good as well.
