I'm Ptysia, a 20 year old student and I spend my time cooking and pursuing my literary dreams. I'm a connoisseur of both and I intend to upgrade to a state-of-the-art kitchen as soon as I top the best seller list.
My favorite things to cook
Anything sweet - baking is a vice of mine, I must admit. I'll try almost anything and I frown upon recipes that seem too easy. My tastes range from home cooked goodies of my childhood (Polish food, YUM!) to exotic cuisines from around the world. With a little bit of effort and soul searching in foreign aisles, I seem to have a knack at creating culinary nirvana.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The whole holiday dinner spiel. Barszcz, BIGOS and of course, Ptysie.
My cooking triumphs
Anything edible I've mastered.
My cooking tragedies
You need three things to be a successful cook: preparation, patience and persistence!
