About this Cook
I'm a wife and mother that loves to cook and bake, watch Alton Brown, and adapt recipes for my family's picky eaters and allergies.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make the foods of my family (Hungarian & Ukrainian) and my husband's family (Polish) heritage. It makes me feel good to pass those traditions on to the next generation.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have wonderful memories of learning to cook with my grandmother. We would stay up all night and bake cookies! Now I make her Babka and Varenyky for my family!
My cooking triumphs
Getting my picky 6 year old daughter to eat Chicken Marsala Portabello!
My cooking tragedies
Flames shooting out of my oven when the broiled shrimp scampi ignited! It's been almost ten years and I still haven't got the nerve to attempt scampi again!

Garlic Prime Rib
This was perfect! I made this for Christmas Eve and left my family speechless...because their mouths were full of rib roast! I followed the directions exactly and had a nice crust that was perfectly seasoned. I pulled the roast at 130, covered until it was 140 and served immediately. It was exactly medium rare. I might do this a little sooner next time because there are a few of us that are diehard rare meat eaters.

Emily's Famous Hash Browns
These are absolutely fab! They are crispy on the outside, tender on the inside. I sometimes adjust the amount of onion depending on my mood, and I also season them right when I put them in the pan. It is our new favorite for hash browns.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf
This is awesome! My husband has been begging me to make a meatloaf and I was dragging my feet because I have never been a fan. I made this a couple of weeks ago and I couldn't get enough. I'm making it again tomorrow!
