My name is Ms. Zuke, and I love to cook! It can be hard, what with going to school full time and working full time, but food is a passion of mine, and I'm determined to get better at cooking and baking!
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking healthy and delicious meals, though I do have a soft spot for pot lucks. :) It's so much fun having the best dish at a get together, with everyone asking me for the recipe.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm Ukrainian, so my family and I come together at least once a year to make varenyky and borscht, and I make a pretty mean holubsti! These traditional dishes mean the most to me.
My cooking triumphs
My grandmother passed away before she could pass on her family recipes to us, so it has been a triumph of mine to find and tweak Ukrainian recipes to make them my own. My family loves it!
My cooking tragedies
I once cooked up a stir fry and didn't realize how long everything was cooking. It was tasty because of the sauce, but it was like eating tasty mush with rice! *LoL* My sweet boyfriend told me it tasted good, but it was definitely gross in my book! Hahaha! Neither of us ate the leftovers. :D
