About this Cook
I'm a full-time student and newlywed. We are both very busy people but enjoy learning to cook together and discovering new things we both like.
My favorite things to cook
Seasonal cooking is the best, and anything vegetarian- soups and pasta dishes are my favorites.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holiday baking tops the list- simple sugar cookies, polish kolackys, and putting new, healthy twists on traditional meals.
My cooking triumphs
There have been a lot of things I've been surprised by- mostly when my carnivore husband loves the meat substitutes we try.
My cooking tragedies
Twice baked sweet potatoes. I made the mistake of trying to bake or boil them instead of using the microwave. It took forever and I gave up- resorted to trying to mash the solid centers of the potatoes. I got so frustrated I threw everything away and we had frozen pizza.

Banana Crumb Muffins
Great recipe- definitely more of a dessert than a snack. Will make your kitchen/house smell delicious!

Mock Tuna Salad
I found the recipe after searching the kitchen in vain for lunch. I found it after an ingredient search for garbanzo beans (the only benas left in the cubbard). Totally delicious and definitely reminiscent of tuna salad. Thanks!
