My favorite things to cook
Dinners and entertaining. I love to cook hot soups and a variety of salads. Every so often I like to make something out of the norm. Unusual, that noone has had.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Raised with a lot of German/ Polish/Russian cooking and hearty winter meals are ones I like to prepare most.Lots of veggies.
My cooking triumphs
Everyone who has tried my chicken fruit salad requests the recipe.Salt-free and low in carbs but you would NEVER know it.
My cooking tragedies
Years ago I made homemade doughnuts for my sons cub scout pack. They were beautifully golden brown and the aroma was devine. The looks on the boy's faces were one of surprise. I forgot the sugar and the doughnuts were bland.
