About this Cook
Married, mom of a 9 year old and a 1 year old.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake... unfortunately, the better I get, the more I like to eat what I bake! I also have a "thing" for casseroles.
My favorite family cooking traditions
No real traditions. My father's family is from Poland, so I've tried dabbling in Polish food.
My cooking triumphs
I perfected a cookie recipe that tastes like the crunchy edge of a brownie. I'll be entering it in the county fair this year.
My cooking tragedies
Few recipes I found here - Like avocado cheese cake. I challenged the kids to find words to describe how bad it was.

Grandma Johnson's Scones
Love this recipe. It's not nearly as dry as scones normally are. Excellent with cinnamon chips and a dusting of cinnamon sugar on the top.

Tuscan Soup
Loved this! I made a few minor changes based on what I had on hand and other reviews. Used 5 cups beef stock and entire can of milk (low fat) and used 1 package of Gnocchi in place of potatoes. It was awesome.

Cottage Cheese Chicken Enchiladas
I thought the cottage cheese was a little strange. Little white chunks floating around. Mind came out rather mushy and it was more like a casserole. Overall, it tasted pretty good.
