About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
We enjoy cooking family recipes most, but also enjoy finding ways to eat fresh, simple foods on a daily basis. We bake our own bread and center my weekly plans around fresh produce available at the farmer's market. We're also learning to grow some of our own food!

Ukrainian Red Borscht Soup
I didn't find this recipe to stand out much. The flavor is just okay. I added more salt, balsamic vinegar, and thyme to try to add some flavor, and it was good, but probably not something I'll make again... unless I just have to use up some beets.

Zucchini Risotto
We loved the flavor, and it was so filling! I added a lot more zucchini - 1 medium and one small - and thought it was great that way. I didn't slice it that thin with a peeler, but really liked the thicker pieces. Also added about 1/4 c cream. Delicious!
