About this Cook
I grew up in a family of great cooks and bakers. I enjoy experimenting with new recipes and techniques.
My favorite things to cook
I like ethnic foods and enjoy trying to make the foods I like. I really like Chinese-American food and Mexican. I have mastered a lot of Polish-American food as that is what I grew up with and learned from my family.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have a lot of family favorites for celebrations and Thanksgiving and usually have a traditional Polish Christmas Eve meal.
My cooking triumphs
I have made an Egg Foo Yung that would rival the best Chinese restaurants.
My cooking tragedies
I have had a lot of failures experimenting with Italian bread and pizza dough. Still have not found a good recipe for either that I think is a real Keeper!

Phyllo Turnovers with Shrimp and Ricotta Filling
I had reservations about this at first, but this recipe was amazing. I made this for a dinner I was invited to for Thanksgiving, and everyone raved about this. I did leave the tabasco out as I did not have it, and will add a bit of cayenne next time. I was a little confused about the triangle part of how to shape them but figured it out. I also ended up only using half of the 1-pound box of phyllo sheets. I will make another batch this week. Thanks for posting this recipe. It is definitely a keeper!

Caramel Frosting V
Thanks Carol for an amazing recipe. This stuff is amazing! I followed the directions to a tee and it turned out perfectly. I did try to whip it when I think it might not have been cool enough and it would not set up, so I let it cool another hour or so and it set up perfectly. It is very sweet, I am surprised someone said that it was not very sweet. It is also very creamy and you can really taste the richness of the butter and cream that are used in here. It is so incredibly easy to make. This is a definite keeper. I used it on an apple cake that my family has made for years that I am going to post the recipe here for soon.

Chocolate Eclair Dessert
I hate recipes that call for just about every ingredient on this list, but this is definitely a keeper. I made real whipped cream to nix the coolwhip. I used one instant french vanilla and one instant cheesecake pudding, honeymaid graham crackers and the pourable chocolate frosting, and this was really good. I had made this a few years back and lost the recipe, and saw the picture on the main page here and thought that'll be a great dessert to take to a potluck I was going to today. As usual, everyone that tried it wanted the recipe. This is definitely better made the day before.
