About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Beef. It goes with everything and trying new spices and flavors to enhance beef is so much fun. Everything from bacon, coffee to cinnamon and wines.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Ahhh,the memories of watching the dough rise and the ground walnuts and honey mixture fermenting in bowls at Christmas time are sweet ones for sure. Mom would take the dough and roll and pull it until paper thin. Add the walnut mix and dots of butter and raisans and then roll up the dough into logs. Baking those until golden brown and some of the walnut mixture would ooze out the sides. Potica, the way her mother made, and then her mother in Yogoslavia made. There is nothing like it.
My cooking triumphs
I love bringing the best for pitch ins. Once I used a recipe for turkey from in the middle of July. Even tho it meant waking up at 3:00 to tuck Tom into the oven, it was great presenting the fall off the bone to the table at work.

The Best Banana Bread
The only thing wrong with this is never enough. So moist on the inside, crispy on the outside and then the bannana flavor takes it to a new level of heaven. I get excited when the local grocery has over-ripe bannans on sale. Thanks for the wonderful recipe.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies
I used this recipe to make ovals and then dressed them with buttercream frosting, a strip of fruit rollup, mini chocolate chips (about 8) a tiny bit of orange jellied candy...all randomly placed to make melting snowmen.

Pumpkin Pancakes with Nutmeg Whipped Cream
Made these without the cream and they were a hit at our annual family Christmas brunch. Just enough spice to be cheery.
