About this Cook
My ultimate goal is to be able to prepare fabulous dishes that my friends and family can enjoy together. Because I'm allergic to a whole slew of food, sometimes my diet is limited. I'm also surrounded by lots of folks who have dietary restrictions, so I want to learn how to make delicious meals that accommodate their needs!
My favorite things to cook
I love to recreate my grandmothers' meals (Polish and Southern American Cuisine) -- I think they'd be very successful on Food Network! I ADORE my slow cooker, and I'm also interested in experimenting with different fruits and veggies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking with pinches, dashes, handfuls, and sprinkles with my Gram.
My cooking triumphs
Disguising vegetables so cleverly that even the most vehement vegetable hater would enjoy them!
My cooking tragedies
My partner, who I love dearly but have few food interests in common with, requested that I make a dish he enjoyed in his hometown of Rochester, NY. I tried to substitute soy milk for cream and omit the eggs -- it was a disaster!

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue
I love how easy this recipe is. I usually cut the dressing in half, and add a bit of water to cut down on calories. So cheap to prepare, too. Delicious over garlic bread with some leafy greens on the side, and in salads the next day. It's hard to screw this one up (bonus!).
