About this Cook
Very busy nursing student, military wife and mother with a cooking obsession. I come from a cooking/baking family and am carrying on the tradition when I have time.
My favorite things to cook
Anything I know my family will appreciate. I try new things all the time! Not all of them are good, though :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother is my inspiration...she is a Polish woman who makes Perogi for a living, by hand still. I make mine the same way. We also have special dips, baked goods, etc.
My cooking triumphs
This year I cooked Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners single-handedly, each holiday with 12-16 people attending. I even found time to make home made pies!
My cooking tragedies
Sometimes trying to edit recipes for the crock pot doesn't turn out too well :( Oh, well, have to try!

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread
I'm sure the cause of non-5 star rating is my own fault...I only had corn meal mix, which is flour/cornmeal/baking soda mix. I used 2c. of this with everything else. I wish I would have either used 1 1/2c. or 1/2c or so more liquid, the end result is a little dry but tasty. Will go great with the Fusion chili, which is the best chili ever (find it on this site).

Delicious Baked Chicken Kiev
Great recipe but I lowered the fat and calories by using muenster cheese instead of butter and frying the chicken w/ veg. spray instead! It was AMAZING even better than butter!

Baked Zucchini Chips
Really good for not being fried. Added some Lawry's to the breading. Make sure they are done same time as the rest of the food, they get cold very quickly.
