About this Cook
I grew up within a large family- Granparents', aunts, uncles, cousins, my brothers and my parents... We all cook and when we have a family gathering it isn't just one person cooking, we all chip in and help. I have been taught to enjoy cooking, and to experiment with the boundaries in the kitchen.. nothing is too complicated.
My favorite things to cook
Cheesecake, and anything new.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mama's Stroganoff, Polish Meatloaf, Sunday morning Plutzka's after Mass(A Polish doughnut), coffee cakes made for the holidays, my brothers Potato Soup, Greatma's Mint Jelly, Papa's seasoning salt, Mama's Mac & Cheese, Hot Chocolate, Mama's Spaghetti, roast slow cooked with mushroom & onion soup.
My cooking triumphs
Successfully made my bro's London Broil recipe without a hitch!
My cooking tragedies

Marinade for Chicken
Very very good. I added some dried Chile flakes, onion powder, ginger and fresh orange juice to the second time around and they both turned out really great!

Chicken Tortilla Soup V
My family loves this recipe... My brother even liked it immensely and he doesnt care for tortilla soup usually. Very flexible recipe, I didnt have the corn so I used some fresh snapped green beans and some chopped green and yellow zucchini and I also added a bit of Cilantro to the chicken before I put the broth in. It turned out excellently. Its definitely turned into a family favorite!

Dorsey's Fish & Oyster House Crab Cakes
My family absolutely loves these crab cakes. As fast as I make them they disappear. I use a mix of Dungeness and Rock crab as I live in the PNW. This recipe compliments the unique taste that Dungeness crab has, and doesn't mask the flavor of the crab. I also either try to cook the in sea water or in home made salt water as well as cook them whole to preserve a richer flavor, I find that if I cook them already cleaned the crab meat can turn out bland even when cooked in sea water. A very useful way to take care of any left-over crab or fish (not a frequent happening in my house). I have tried variations by adding less Old Bay Seasoning(as we rarely use it with seafood), and I use Kraft yellow mustard. A forever favorite of my family, and will always be well used in crabbing season!
