About this Cook
Stay at home mom of two, love to find new recipes and try them out for my hubby!!!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook Italian foods, since my husband is Italian I always get great praise for meals he enjoys.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pierogies, My baba and I would make them when I was little and now I make them with my kids.
My cooking triumphs
Christmas- every year I cook a sit down meal for 15- 20 people for christmas day. It is a challenge because not only do I have to cook for so many, but I also have to try to enjoy the day with my two small kids!
My cooking tragedies
I once made a white lasagne (no red sauce). It sounded delicious it my cookbook, but when I made it for dinner it was so dry and disgusting - we wound up getting take-out I was so disappointed.

Royal Icing III
Great Recipe for a perfect Royal Icing!!! It dried nice and hard--I made a crown out of the icing... make a pattern- Tape it onto a coffee can, tape wax paper on top of that, then trace the pattern on the wax paper with this royal icing, let dry--repeat 2 more times, then let dry overnight. Carefully remove the waxpaper from can and peel off of the icing VOILA!!! Will be a great topper on a cake!!! Thanks a lot Veronica!!

Too Much Chocolate Cake
mmmmm..... this cake is dangerous!!!! After I finished my first slice, I wanted to sit with the whole cake in front of me and eat it all by myself!!!!lol!!! This is a very simple cake that comes out perfect! I used what I had in my pantry- German Chocolate cake mix and only 1 cup of chocolate chips.. otherwise I follow the reciepe to the T. I served it with a berry sauce on top (YUM) 2 cups chopped berries(I used strawberries but I think next time I'll try raspberries!!!) 1/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup water, 1 Tbl lemon juice, and 1 tsp cornstarch~~ Combine water, lemon juice, cornstarch and sugar in pot over medium heat. Stir well to dissolve cornstarch, then add fruit. Simmer for 5-10 minutes. This sauce really complements this cake. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!!! Can't wait to make it again!!

Broccoli Pie
This was really good! It is a great, simple recipe that my 7 and 3 year old LOVE! I did saute the onions in a little butter and added a little garlic, crushed red pepper, parsley and italian seasoning. Then added that mixture to the broccoli mixture- but besides that I followed the recipe. Thanks you for a great recipe!
