About this Cook
I'm a web designer and graphic artist who cooks to get away from her computer and to do something "real"
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, biscuits, anything I can share. But I also love whisking together a complex flavourful sauce.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up with traditional Polish dishes like golabki, pierogi and bigos. My mom is teaching me how to make them - I haven't mastered any yet!
My cooking triumphs
Nothing yet, though I have made some killer chicken.
My cooking tragedies
One word: caramel

I made these for a Christmas party and they were a big hit! I used slightly less dates (I didn't have enough for a cup) and pecans instead of walnuts. They were moist and wonderful. I might make them again with cream cheese icing.

These turned out very tasty. As someone else said, they're like little lemon bars! I agree that the cookie part is too dry to make a sandwich - I left mine open and sprinkled with powdered sugar as someone else suggested. Also, the lemon filling does take a while to thicken up but it's worth it!

Butternut Squash Bisque
Still the best soup I've ever made. It's THE soup to make during cool autumn months!
