About this Cook
I am a full-time registered nurse and part-time cook. Cooking is my way of decompressing from my stressful ICU job. I learned to cook by watching and helping my mom in the kitchen, watching food tv, and reading recipes since I was a teen. My Polish-Slovak-Lithuanian roots give me my love of food and love of cooking. My husband is my main taster and inspiration. He will eat anything and give my an honest review every time.
My favorite things to cook
Breaded pork chops, risotto, cabbage and noodles, gourmet burgers, anything for my husband!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Polish-Slovak-Lithuanian foods, New Christmas traditions with my hubby
My cooking triumphs
Gumbo: making the roux was definitely a labor of love. Risotto: I make a mean wild mushroom risotto my hubby craves. Breaded pork chops: my number one dish according to my husband.
My cooking tragedies
I stink at making meatloaf.

Chef John's Grilled Jerk Pork Tenderloin
Sooooooo good. I used only 1 habanero, but next time I will use 2. I also used pork chops. Will make again and again!

Mock Champagne
I made this for my friend's baby shower. The ice ring was way too big for my punch bowl. All the ingredients were already chilled so no ice ring was no big deal. I substituted sparkling grape juice for half of the white grape juice. The extra bubbles were fun and the sparkling grape juice isn't as sweet. All in all the "champagne" was a hit.
