My name is Joanne and I live in a country home with my husband Dan, One forster child Josh and our beautiful Basset Hounds. Bonnie and Maggie.... I love to cook in my spare time which unfortunally isnt much. Looking forward to moving out of ny in a couple of years. Actual meals are my thing. Tho i love to bake it usually dosnt love me. Except a few. This site has been a godsend to my cooking skills tho.....
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook almost everything. I guess I love to make old dishes passed down from my grandparent who all came over from poland. The food I grew up with seems so comforting when I get to eat it again.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I guess the only really food traditions we have every year are For Easter having Polish sausage, with hard boiled eggs and rasin bread.(grew up having babki bread but its hard to find now
And for christmas eve. although every one eats all the other food that is made i have to have my homemade perogi made with either sweet cabbage or sweet cottage cheese. It wouldnt be christmas eve to me with out them even if i am the only one who eats them.....
My cooking triumphs
Being able to cook any of the foods i grew up with and never learned how to make them just by memory now. Gumpki, perogis. capusta. Thoes are my most cherished ones I have prefected.
