About this Cook
I'm a middle school teacher and mom of 1 boy, soon to be starting elementary school, very picky eater. And his dad is not much better.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking anything that has cheese, and has kind of a warm, gooey consistency. I also love roasts, and baking any kind of dessert.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas Eve is very important to me. Even after living in the States for over 20 years, I continue to follow the tradition of the Polish Wigilia.
My cooking triumphs
My first standing rib roast
My cooking tragedies
Everything I baked/roasted for the first week in our new apartment. It would come out burnt. The temperature dial for the oven was broken, and I finally figured out the oven was off by about 25 degrees.

Rich Italian Sausage and Potato Soup
I really liked this soup, as did the rest of the family. I see that several people complained that it was bland, but it may have to do with the type of sausage that was used. I used a mild sausage, as I have little ones who don't like spicy, but I took the sausage out of the casing, broke it up in the pot, and then sauteed it. I did not add bacon, as there was enough fat in the sausage. I also used a really good chicken base ( I prefer the better than bouillon brand). It was delicious.

Ranch Burgers
Loved these. My son, who is 4 and lives off of chicken nuggets and ketchup, ate this up as if his life depended on it; and then asked for a second one. I made only 4 burgers, so 1 lb. of ground chuck (this has more flavor than the lean) one egg, one whole packet of ranch dressing mix and only 4 saltines crushed. The Burgers were juicy, and you could definitly taste the ranch, but it wasn't overpowering. Finished them off with some sharp cheddar and they were delicious. I will definitely make these again.

Shepherd's Pie VI
So my husband is not a fan of cream of mushroom soup and I was so excited to find a recipe for shepherd's pie that didn't need it. This recipe was great as is, but I think I will try some of the other reviewers suggestions and add some gravy.
