My favorite things to cook
I'm a salad fiend. Any salad, any time. It's not really cooking, is it?
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm of Polish heritage. My grandmother Anna could really cook - pierogi, galumpki, you name it. Those are my comfort foods.
My cooking triumphs
Kulebiaka recipe from Gourmet magazine. I served it at Christmas and cut out little pastry stars to decorate it. It really was stunning, and delicious to boot.
My cooking tragedies
Early experiment trying to make pumpkin pie in a dorm kitchen, using non-pie pumpkins (jack-o-lantern types). Eew.
